What's the difference between a Hair band, Headband, and a Scrunchie?


Have you ever been confused or gotten into an argument caused by the inability to tell the difference between these hair accessories? This blog post will tell you all about the differences. Whether you're tying your hair up for an errand, or you want to go on a date, these three products will help keep your glorious tresses in place.

The major difference between these three hair accessories lies in their size and structure. Let's take a closer look at each one in detail.

What are Headbands?

Headbands are thick pieces of fabric that are often worn like a ring around the head and ears. They are used to keep your hair tight to the crown of your head. They are mostly made of polyester, which is soft and comfortable. They are very easy to wear. Headbands can also be worn in a similar way to hairbands, but may need to be secured with bobby pins in this case.

Headbands can be plain or multi-coloured. They can be embellished with bows, flowers or other trims. At JC&Unicorn you'll find lots of different designs to match your every mood and outfit. Our headbands are made from polyester and spandex, which gives a gentle elasticity to the band ensuring a perfect fit.

What are Hairbands?

A hairband or Alice band is a, open-ended hoop-shaped hair accessory worn across the top of an individual's head and usually placed behind the ears. The stiff hairband frame is usually covered with some soft padding encased in thick beautiful fabrics.

Hairbands are used to keep the hair pulled back away from the eyes. So, as well as being beautifully decorative, hairbands are also useful when taking part in activities such as cheerleading, dancing, or exercise classes. Hairbands also fit securely, with many having built-in grips at the ends of the arms. These open arms also make hairbands easily adjustable to different head sizes.

What are scrunchies?

Scrunchies are essentially round elastic bands covered with decorative and beautiful fabrics. They come in all sorts of colors, patterns, materials, and sizes. Today birds and flowers are particularly popular designs that you can find.

They are often used to tie up long hairstyles like ponytails and braids. Scrunchies generally have soft textures and are usually gentle on the hair. They are also compact, fitting easily into your purse, ready for whenever you need them. Check out the range we have in stock at JC&Unicorn.
