OK, so we’re already assuming that you’re going to get gussied up for New Year’s. If you’re planning to kick it at home (ahem, like myself more than likely), naturally your hair accessory is probably a pillow. But if you’re going out, and maybe it’s not the absolute soiree of the century but you still want to devote a little glitter to the occasion, give these headbands a whirl. In most cases, a headband is just an embellishment — and it stays put — no extra styling needed (unless you want to!) and it looks like you, yah know, tried
