Equally popular, but more individual because it must be worn with impunity, is the wearing of the Grecian band. With this the hair is arranged high at the back, being careful to preserve full, even outlines. For wear with this band the hair may be coiled or puffed or done in curls which hang as they will. One of the most fascinating uses of this band is with the center parting, the hair drawn out loosely over the ears and pinned in loose coils at the back. In this the band is often lost to view at the back. In this illustration, one of these bands in Empire style and fastened with an ornament is shown. Many of these decorated bands are very beautiful, but they do not suit all wearers. Some prefer the plain satin, velvet, or metallic ribbons for the purpose.
