We’ve seen many hair trends come and almost go of late: butterfly clips, barrettes, and bubble head-bands (in their many forms). We’ve seen giant scrunchies and big bows, but there’s only one hair addition you need: the silk satin headband.
The resurgence in headbands is well-timed for the return of Gossip Girl, which, via the sartorial choices of Blair Waldorf, definitively changed the way we considered hair accessories. And while we’ve found ourselves rushing towards the claw clips and athleisure hairbands of the ’90s (after seeing them on Bella Hadid first, of course), if you want to beat summer sweat and simultaneously look chic, a British brand has the answer.

Refine, which specializes in the silk slips you might have seen on Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy or pre-Goop Gwyneth Paltrow, launched their London-based label with a range of matching hair accessories, so you can have the ultimate co-ordinating outfit. It’s the brand’s answer to waste: may no scrap of fabric go unused.
And while their silk-satin scrunchies certainly are beautiful, it’s the headbands that really have me sold. Handmade in Italy and retailing for around $70 USD, this is an investment that will yield return for years to come. Pair with one of Refine’s other pieces, or mix it into your wardrobe—either way all eyes will be on you, and you’ll be keeping the hair out of your own.
