Perky, quirky, chic and elegant hair accessories are having a moment in the beauty world right now! From cool pearl bobby pins to eccentric barrettes, the runways and red-carpets are buzzing with stylish hair accessories that are not just statement accessories but have the power to add glamour to any look.

One such accessory that is emerging to be a runway-hit is padded headbands! It was Miuccia Prada who incorporated these colourful padded headbands into Prada's Spring 2019 runway show and since then we’ve been crushing over this drop-dead hair accessory. Kate Middleton too backed this accessory trend by sporting it during one of her public appearances. And, pulled it off with great aplomb!

Here are a few ways in which you can style a padded headband...
