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.
