At the risk of making yet another "girl on fire" pun to describe Jennifer Lawrence’s gorgeous look from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 London premiere, the star certainly set the red carpet ablaze with her stylish Dior gown, which she topped off with a chic and simple black headband. We love how it keeps the polished number from appearing too buttoned-up, as a coiffed updo would have been too severe. A thin black headband also works wonders at hiding second-day strands, or keeping flyaways at bay---a must if you're growing your pixie or lob.

Try your hand at the effect by picking up an elastic version like H&M's ($4 for a set of four;, sweep your strands toward the back, and slide the accessory into place. Tailor the style to flatter your features; Allow a few wisps to fall out and frame your face if you want to downplay your ears or forehead, but resist the urge to wind them around a curling iron, as doing so may creep into pageant-esque territory.
