Hair accessories can be just as cute on short hairstyles. If you are unsure how to rock a headband on short hair, here are some fool-proof tips.

Choosing the right headband for an evening event
For a night on the town add a jewelled headband for extra sparkle to both short hair or long. Diamante or rhinestone headbands can be worn with textured wavy tressers for contrast or slicked back on either long or short hair for extra sophistication. Going to a special event? Turn heads with a statement headband. Eye catching chunky headbands embellished with jewels, pearls or plaited velvet varieties can be complimented by subtle earrings or necklaces and a bracelet to tie it all together. For a more pared back look, consider a padded satin headband with a pair of statement earrings to turn up the wow factor.
