Padded headbands have definitely evolved from your middle school days (think chic instead of childish). The only aspect that's stayed the same is how to put it on—start at your hairline and push it back.

A statement headband like this embellished one deserves to, well, make a statement. Slick back your hair underneath to keep all eyes on your bold accessory. Floyd's Barbershop stylist Patrick Butler suggests keeping the hair up with a product such as Reuzel Fiber Pomade ($18). A high-quality product, he adds, "allows you to handle any look and texture you are trying to work with."

This type of headband-parting combo looks great with any hairstyle or length. Instead of pushing the headband back, part your hair down the middle and place the headband toward the back of your head.

Keep it easy with this classic, versatile headband style. Wrap the bandana or scarf around your head with your hair up or down, then tuck the ends of the scarf in the back of your head or bring them around to front à la Adwoa Aboah.

For a '90s throwback, copy Sarah Hyland's sporty style. This look is a super-simple way to disguise day-three hair. Pull it into a low, loose bun with a scrunchie and top it with a thick elastic headband.

A headband with a print, like the tropical pattern shown here, is a fun yet practical accessory for a day spent outside at a festival. To get this look, either tie your silk scarf yourself or find a version with an elastic strip along the bottom.

When styled with natural, air-dried waves, like Sydney Sweeney's, nothing about this pearl and rhinestone headband says prim and proper. "One of my favorite ways to prep hair is to create tousled waves with a dry texture spray like Matrix Total Results Miss Mess Dry Finishing Spray ($18)," says celebrity stylist Nick Stenson.

As Stenson notes, accessories like hats and headbands are great, but tend to be limiting "they also tend to limit guys when it comes to a manageable hair style." Fear not; Flat headbands don't have to look super sporty. For a slightly different way to wear the wide, flat headband, follow Jenna Dewan's style and secure your headband over your middle parting for a more modern look.
