At the end of a long workday, sometimes you just need a sweet release. For some, it's Netflix. For others, it's a juicy pour of wine. And for me, it's Chrissy Teigen. Or more specifically, her obsession with pretty, very Instagrammable headbands. In fact, the only thing better would be an epic combination of all three. Just me?
In celebration of Teigen's new dedicated Instagram Story series "Headband of the Day" (aka HBOTD), narrated hilariously with a playful theme song courtesy of her vocally blessed husband, John Legend, we thought we'd pay our own little ode to the model's workout, breastfeeding, tooth-brushing hair accessory of choice. After all, Teigen has pretty much proved the look's versatility, and what's better in the sticky months of summer than having a go-to style to stave off the sweat-drenched rattails we find plastered to the nape of our neck? Thought so. Ahead, nine of our favorite HBOTD moments, courtesy of Chrissy Teigen's addicting Instagram Stories, plus nine look-alike shopping options we think your beach and workout bags need ASAP.

For a touch of glamour, we love the combination of sparkle and a stunning hit of black.
Pink is pretty for summer, and we especially love it in satin (or likely in Teigen's case, silk).
Black, red, pick your poison. We just love the gold foil details in either Teigen's red take or this more subdued version from Jennifer Behr.
Nothing feels more classic than blue or black velvet. To channel Chrissy's Old Hollywood glamour, senior editor Hallie Gould recommends this affordable pick that she found on Amazon.
We can't stop ogling the pretty beaded accents on this yellow headband iteration from Anthropologie.
For a similar pop of green, may we suggest this budget-friendly number from Urban Outfitters? Again, it's the perfect color combo for the warmer months (puppy filter optional).
What feels more appropriate this time of year than flowers, palm leaves, and crisp white backdrop? Do like Teigen and opt for this tropically inspired headband which we'd wear flossing, brushing, and beyond.
Although it's hard to tell in the photo, the side of this season-perfect headband (be it summer or, gasp, fall) is blooming with pearlescent beads and pretty flowers. Plus, we love the neutral green palette, which feels more subdued.
Who knew violet, pastel pink, and black could make for such a striking color combo? We found an almost exact match for Teigen's with this pretty number from Anthropologie.
