BEAUTY LOWDOWN

The Alice band is back

By Joanna Kyte, 4 May 2017

Can you hear that? That’s the siren of nostalgia calling you right back to reacquaint yourself with the 00s Alice band. Really. Here’s how to secure a little ‘Blair Waldorf does 2017’ beauty with help from Erdem and Jemima Kirke.

Erdem’s ’17 show proved that adding in a headband to any level of bedhead will result in chic. Finish off this breezy look (those fly-aways you try to keep under control? Don't) with a pair of your best chandelier earrings.

Jemima Kirke is taking hairband style up to new-season heights. Make like JK by sectioning off some front-fringe hair pieces before backcombing in a mid-level beehive. Complete with a wide-set headband and mega gold hoops.
