One of fashion’s most popular hair accessories right now is headbands. Over the last few seasons, we have seen it donned by everyone from models on the runway to fashion influencers on social media. While there are several brands with their own iteration of headwear, there is one brand whose designs people can’t just get enough of, and that brand is Gucci.
Gucci headbands have become highly sought-out items because of their chic designs and impeccable quality. Of course, those headbands come with a luxe price tag that doesn’t excite a lot of people. The average price of a Gucci headband starts at $490. While some shoppers don’t mind forking over that type of cash, others are understandably reluctant.
So what other options are there for the bargain consumer? We’re glad you asked because that’s where alternative brands come in. Headbands are so in demand now that literally every brand and retailer is getting in on the trend. This means that they’re stylish headbands available at just about any price point. And yes, that includes headbands with Gucci-inspired designs. Keep reading on for our favorite fashionable Gucci headband alternatives.
