Alice band

She looked, Harry thought, like somebody's maiden aunt: squat, with short, curly, mouse-brown hair in which she had placed a horrible pink Alice band... - Harry Potter, observing Dolores Umbridge (OP11)

Alice band

An Alice band is a hair band of the type worn by a young girl to hold her hair back from her face; from the way Alice wore her hair in Alice Through the Looking-Glass.

A hairpiece worn by Professor Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, chapter 11.
