Headbands are rather popular in the ballet studio, for men and ladies alike. They are not just for aesthetics but actually do serve a purpose. When you are working hard and sweating you don’t want flyaway hair to stick to your face - It’s not the best look! I’m always rather surprised bandanas haven’t caught on with men outside the dancing world, ( in the gym etc) I presume it still has that 80s image. Also for the ladies it brings back that 1950s house wife image, which might not be the best! Hopefully these dancers can change your mind that headbands are back and look fiercer than ever.
