Choosing the right headband for your face shape

Posted by Sally Birch on

As you may or may not know, here at Piggi International, I am passionate about creating headbands that women from all over the world can love and enjoy. Although different styles and trends arise in time, I love experimenting with folding techniques to achieve unique finished products so every lovely lady can find a headband that perfectly suits her fashion preferences. 

If you're only just re-entering the world of head accessories and aren't sure which headband will best compliment your looks, I've put together this little guide to help you find just what you're looking for.

Twist & Classic Knot Headband 

Ideal for those with a rounder face shape, a classic or twist knot headband, like my Ladies of H Classic Knot Headband, works to elongate the face by drawing attention upwards. In this, people will be more naturally drawn to your features, particularly your eyes, as their attention is pulled slightly upwards from the centre of your face. 

As round faces are typically the most symmetrical, it is also best to find a headband that knots in the centre to create perfect harmony with your features. 

Twist Knot headbands can also have the same impact for those with a diamond face shape, especially if your cheekbones are very pronounced. 


Alice Headband 

Those with strong features, including defined eyebrows, a pronounced jawline or an oval face, will typically veer towards flatter, less obvious styles of headbands. This is because the more subtle shape of the headband won't take away from their prominent facial features but will still add a touch of colour and style to their fit. 

Headbands like my All The Kings Men GG Tie Padded Headband are perfect for those who want to keep the attention on their face or dominant features but still want to dress up their look in a uniquely stylish way. 

But don't forget, just because a specific style or trend tells you one thing doesn't mean you can't still buy an accessory you love. Learning how to dress it up to your specific needs is a perfect way to become more in touch with your fashionable side. 

At Piggi International, I am always scouting the world for new and exciting designer scarves to transform into beautiful, upcycled accessories. More than just headbands, you can also discover scrunchiescushions and more on my site! Visit my shop today to find a one-of-a-kind piece for yourself.
