5 More Hair Accessories To NOT Wear Anytime Soon (Or Would You?)

We've played this game before, and it's time for another round. Here's how it goes: I find some of the silliest (IMO) hair accessories currently in stores, and you either join me in poking fun at them OR bravely admit that you actually kind of like one of them.













Through Aqua Colored Glasses Clip, $13 at ModCloth

I feel bad making fun of this clip because it's cute--I mean, miniature spectacles can't help but be cute. However, I do not think miniature spectacles are cute when worn in your hair. Unless you are five.

Shut Up Headband, $13 at Asos

I think this brand's Shut Up shirt is funny and endearing in its randomness. But this thick knit headband version of the idea just feels TOO random. It really should say "WTF", because that's all that comes to mind when I look at it.

Buyer's Remorse Montreal Turban Headband, $58 at Pink Mascara

The brand name (Buyer's Remorse!) says it all. But if you still want to wear this look, save yourself the cash: Tear a strip of fabric off your ugliest shiny satin bridesmaid dress and tie it around your forehead Rambo-style. Done.

Cross Headwrap, $10 at Urban Outfitters

Maybe it's my decades of Catholic schooling, but I find nothing tackier than when people hang rosary beads from their necks or rear-view mirrors. Oh no, wait! This cross head wrap is tackier.

Lace Scrunchie, $3 at Forever 210802-hair_accessories_5_bd.jpg


I've come to terms with the fact that scrunchies are back. However, I cannot accept this particular scrunchie, which is apparently inspired by those cheap garters people toss during wedding receptions. Or the garters people wear with cheap French maid costumes on Halloween. Either way, not a good way to class up your ponytail.

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
