3’s a trend : The head band

I’ve always been a fan of the headband, especially on those more-than-usual tighter-for-time mornings, you know the ones, where you should really wash your hair, but know that you’ll never  leave the house on time and so you scrape it back hoping no-one will notice that it’s looking a little in need of a shampoo?
