Are you looking forward to a life with less Zoom calls, like I am? Whilst we wait (impatiently in my case!) for the return of parties later this year, for many of us, seeing our friends and family online is the next best option for the next few months.
It's tempting to just wear our chill-out clothes at all times, but I have found from personal experience, that wearing a statement headband or headpiece on a FaceTime or Zoom call, really lifts my spirits, and that my friends and family love the fact I have made an effort too.
Headbands frame our faces, and are wondrously visible on screen, where other jewellery is not.
For a casual Saturday quiz night with friends, try a classic knot headband, worn with a bright lip, for a playful and retro-inspired look.
For an online birthday party, a padded headband is your friend on camera. Did you know padded headbands actually give a face-lift effect! The extra height cleverly draws the eye upwards, to create a lifted look.
For a super fun, online dress up session, your headwear should make a massive statement, as this is the most visible piece of your costume on camera. Try a flamboyant boho headpiece, or even a crown or tiara to really take you to another reality.
Bright gold is such an uplifting colour, and this knot headband gives a playful finish, when teamed with red lips.
Shoulders are big news for 2021, and this bow headband works well to balance out big shoulders, when you are framed on a Zoom call. It's also deliciously girly and fun, and is bound to make you, and others smile when you wear it.
The pearls on this padded headband make this a classic, but playful piece. It has a noticeable 1980s vibe, and so will work well with strong shoulders, as well as lifting your face on screen, as the padding and pearls draw the eye upwards.
Flamboyant feathers are nothing but fun to wear. Try this feather headband in silver for a dress-up Zoom call to celebrate a friend's birthday.
If you are the birthday Queen, make the online party a memorable one by wearing a crown. Go on.. give yourself the ultimate birthday lift!
