Bow headbands: the cure for bad hair days

Bow_headbabnd A couple of months ago, I had a really bad haircut. Then, a few weeks later? I had another one. The result? My hair is now the worst it’s ever been, and every day I face a fresh battle not to just pick up a pair of scissors and cut it all off. Seriously.

My savior during this terrible time? The humble alice band. I’ve amassed quite the collection of these lately, but my favourites remain Dorothy Perkins’ bow headbands, which come in a few different colours and are – I think – £5.

I currently have stupid, choppy layers all around the front of my hair, so the band holds that back while I normally have to just put the back into a chignon. It’s a look I’m starting to get really, really bored with now, but at least it’s better than just leaving the whole mess loose.

What does everyone else do when faced with the mother of all bad hair days?
