How to Keep a Headband From Slipping

If you’ve ever wondered how to keep a headband from slipping, you’re certainly not alone. Whether you’re mid-run, at work, or just driving down the road, it seems like headbands pick the most inopportune times to slip! Luckily, we’ve got a few great tips for how to keep a headband in place so you can get back to what you’re doing without worrying about how to keep a headband on while doing it!

How to Keep a Headband From Slipping

Get a Grip!

Hands down, one of the best tips for how to keep a headband in place is to create a headband holder or something for your headband to hold on to! To make a now-show headband holder, try applying some hairspray, pomade, hair gel, or texturizing spray to the spots where the headband will sit on your head. Then, simply put your headband on and style your hair! You can also use hot glue or a rubber-like textured product that has a good grip on it and apply it to the inside of your headband. Voila! A no-show, no-go headband holder solution!

Secure It In Place

Okay, so maybe you don’t plan on wearing a headband all day and, therefore, don’t want to apply hairspray, gel, or pomade to parts of your hair, or have the time to create a headband holder to the inside of your headband. We totally understand, which is why this next tip is worth definitely worth a try! All you’ll need is either some bobby pins or hair clips.

Hair Clip Triangle

After putting on your headband, apply bobby pins in a criss-cross fashion through the hair and down onto the headband, with the bobby pin or clip openings pointing downwards. This can be done anywhere you need some extra hold. If your hair is down, you can easily cover the bobby pins or clips in the back of your head or even on the sides. There is no real science behind where you put the clips or pins, just as long as it’s comfortable and works for you!

Try an Adjustable Headband
