Headbands are a beautiful and practical headwear accessory that is becoming increasingly popular. The primary function of headbands is to keep hair firmly in place.
Headbands began no later than around 475 BC to 330 BC, with the ancient Greeks, who wore hair wreaths. The Greeks and Romans wore these pieces for exceptional occasions or significant events. Cultures such as the Etruscans and Romans decorated their wreaths with jewellery of gold and silver. The primary function of headbands is to keep hair firmly in place. Women started wearing velvet headbands decorated with pearls and gems in the roaring twenties.
In the sixties and seventieth, women started wearing scarves around the head and tying it under the chin. The shape of scarves gradually changed into a headband. Headbands are perfect for a bad hair day and a jewel for your head.
Headbands by Bronté
The design of Bronté headband Lilli Rose is like a double-leaf, and they comfortably cover your head from ear to ear.
At Bronté, we mainly select deluxe fabrics like Linton Tweeds for making headbands. All Linton tweed fabrics are limited in availability and, therefore, rather exclusive.
We also love headbands in satin that come in various colours and widths. The satin headbands have a slightly more formal yet subtle look.
In the winter season, you can find Bronte headbands made of velvet and knitted headband like Camille. Camille is a chunky and warm headband that protects your forehead van ears against the cold.
The velvet headbands come in medium and narrow widths in elegant colours like burgundy red, marine blue, black and taupe beige.
