Historical origin

The most popular way to trace the origin of Hairbands is to trace back to the time of ancient Greece and Rome.

Hair band

Hair crown. Around 475 BC, the ancient Greeks wore crowns made of flowers, branches and leaves, gold, silver and precious stones, and flocked to the Dionysian celebrations to revel and sing triumphantly among the winners of the arena. The perfect body, linen curls and exquisite hair crowns were adorned, which was a paradise for both gods and men. 

It has been said that hairband is a "mix" version of the crown and eaves. If so inferred, in the 1930s, fashionable women in Europe tried to "abandon" their hats and use soft fabrics such as ribbons and laces to tie their hair buns, then insert flower ornaments and feathers, which is probably the earliest modern style of hairbands. When it comes to the modern and Glamour years, Hollywood in the 1930s, with its shining stars, and a group of talented black and white actresses, such as the charming Chinese actress Anna May Wong, the luring Louis Brooks of Yanzhi, and the mysterious ice and snow goddess Garbo, are all beauties of the generation who deduce the wide hairband. 

1960s Wide Hair Band Dressing Method: Place all hair on one side and fix it with rubber band. Tie the hairband behind the bangs and temples, and then grab the back of the head with hair wax to feel fluffy. Finally, use a curler to roll out the long hair below (it is also beautiful and convenient to weave a fluffy twist braid). 

At the 2004 Golden Globe Awards ceremony, Nicole Kidman took the lead in reintroducing her hairband to the top of the fashion. Her tiny blonde curls, with a satin blonde hairband, dressed in a "Deep V" golden flashy evening dress, suddenly overwhelmed all sentient beings on the colorful red carpet.
