Running Late? Here's The Only Accessory You Need

A headband is hardly a seasonal accessory, but letting your strands air-dry certainly calls for warmer temps. And, as most of us know all too well, when you let your locks do its natural thing, you might not always end up with perfectly imperfect bedhead — even if you did win the battle against the snooze button.
But, because it just feels so good to give our thirsty strands a break from the blow-dryer, we rounded up 12 so-chic headbands that not only rein in any annoying, unruly flyaways, but instantly polish up any look in a pinch — no dry shampoo necessary. So, from a Rosie-the-Riveter-inspired headscarf to a glamorous, Swarovski-jeweled heirloom band, click through for 12 grown-up iterations of your favorite childhood accessory.
