Trend Alert: The Forehead Headband


[Post courtesy of out friends at For more awesome fashion, style and beauty news, check them out!]

What do Mischa Barton, Mary Kate Olsen and Nicole Richie all have in common? They’re all embracing their inner hippie by sporting the forehead headband.

Now, we have to admit, we weren’t on board with this trend at first. Seriously, why not just push the headband back off your forehead? But after much consideration, and a few times actually sporting the trend ourselves, we’re convinced … once in awhile, it’s fun to feel like a flower child! And tons of fabulous fashion and accessory designers are getting in on the trend by creating headbands specifically for the purpose of being worn around the forehead, not pushed back up onto the crown. Check out our new faves.

With the word “fab” in the name, how can this one go wrong? The style is, well, fab … not to mention the amazing price. And we’re totally on board with the gorgeous pink metallic braiding.

    This "trend" is so stupid. I hate it! They are a couple kids on campus doing the headband thing and they always look like dumbasses because the headband slides up their heads, pushing their hair up also and the just look like aliens. It's not cute. If anything, this trend is overrated and the only people that can adequately pull this look off are trying-too-hard faux hipsters.

    Isn't this "trend" old news?

    I thought trends were current?

    I HATE this trend. It makes people look ridiculous and, moreover, retarded.

  6. Anna says:

    No way. I refuse. There is a REASON this look died out with the hippies. Unless you are on some kind of drug, there is no way this is an ok look LOL
