Fancy a bit of crowning glory? You’re in luck because the band is back. In and out of style, hairbands haven’t had a moment since Blair Waldorf wore ’em to death in Gossip Girl but that’s going back a few years ago now.

We’ve been seeing nods to things moving up top for a while: Dolce and Gabbana brought crowns to the catwalk for AW14 but it was 12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscars topper that’s really brought the trend into the mainstream. 

Wanna get some head dressing for yourself? No hassle: we’ve got some celeb inspo and stuff to buy in the gallery. Enjoy!


The original hairband queen? Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf shows us how to do it.

This Oscar de la Renta Crystal-embellished satin headband is, erm, a snip at €199.87 on The Outnet. That's half price, y'alls.

Katy Perry does super-embellish with jewels and sparkle. It works, no?

Dolce and Gabbana went head-wear crazy for this season with bejewelled headpieces and crowns. This is one of the brand's more restrained offerings, but the price sure ain't. You'll pay €695 for the crystal-embellished metal and lace hairband on My Theresa

Turns out Kirsten Dunst is quite the fan of headgear, from this simple flat black ribbon to one further along in the gallery that's all kinds of fancy.

You'll be pleased to know this bloom-tastic offering is a mere €14.99 from Claires.

And Lupita herself, who wore a Fred Leighton Headband to the 2014 Oscars and is probably single handedly responsible for bringing hairbands back into the public consciousness. Go girlfren.

This cute Eugenia Kim Audra crystal headband is €120.95 on Net a Porter.

Leather and textile sandals, €65, & Other Stories.

Kirsten Dunst's bag is a Chanel Flap 2.55 reissue in purple, no less.

Got €388.70? Then the Ulyana emerald hairband from Shourouk can be yours.
