Headbands: The Fad Only a Celeb Can Love

Hi Darlings:

Throughout the years there have been many accessory fads that have started in Hollywood and made it to the mainstream but there are equally many that seem to not catch on with the "everyday" gal. More recently, gladiator shoes, for example, have been the accessory du jour. Granted they might have started with Balenciaga but they've become more popular as celebrities such as Nicole Richie, Mary Kate Olsen, and Gwyneth Paltrow are seen wearing them on and off the red carpet.

The over-sized sunglasses look made a comeback via Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen and homage to Jackie O and now even middle end brand stores like Express and H&M carry the look. Even I have a pair now.
However, the headband or scarf on the forehead tied behind the head look is just a hippie inspired trend that hasn't caught on.

The "every day" gal has not taken to it no matter how many celebs are photographed for wearing the costumed seeming look. Thank goodness! The thought of the forehead imprint and dent in a perfectly coiffed hairstyle is just too much to bare.

I think we "every day" gals prefer the ordinary look when it comes to scarves, so we are sticking to using them as the traditional necktie, triangular head tie, as a belt or even to adorn our purses. Somebody should mention this to Aubrey O'Day of Danity Kane...she now designs these headbands for sale on her Heart on my Sleeve website to the "every day" gal.
