What Is Up With This Trend?

I love a great headband. One of my favorite things about Gossip Girls is all of Blair's adorable headbands


So cute. So trendy. Such a great way to keep your hair out of your face.


Kaeli has lots of fabulous headbands.


But I just don't get this look.





It's everywhere, and I just don't understand it. Why? Why are they doing this? It looks so ridiculous. Who thought that this was cool? And why are others following?


Are there others out there that hate this too? I can't be the only one, right?!

I think its just one of those stupid trends that will disappear in no time and everyone will feel like an ass when they look back at themselves. It looks ridiculous, plain and simple.

OMG I have not seen this before, other than the hippies but what the hell ...way to look lame.

Everybody wantsa be like MaryKate! lol
I've seen this lots, but only in Big Cities (mainly London, Vegas n Rome. This is prolly not something you'd see in Texas....nothin against Texas (cause I've got family in a one-stoplight town there). But seriously....

That is... just so stupid. The POINT of a headband is to KEEP HAIR OFF YOUR FACE. This new madness seems to just **hold the hair IN the face**. Weird.

I guess every generation is entitled to their stupidity. As the proud owner of several rainbow-colored wing-style shirts, I have no room to complain, I suppose.

(but they look wicked retahded, as I would have said back in the day)

I happen to be a headband fanatic, and the very best collection I've found is www.andreasbeau.com, which has the most beautiful styles I've seen anywhere. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are also affordable! Give this site a look before you rule out headbands.
