You're complaining because it makes you look YOUNGER??

I looked at several yesterday, but was hesitant because most of them fit too tightly and give me headaches. I'm trying to grow out my bangs, and they've reached that point where they're constantly in my eyes....thus, the headband consideration.

Maybe I'll put up with the headaches in order to look younger!

I don't wear the plastic ones. I wear the ones made of material. No headaches with them

Hmm, that never bothered me.

Bjones, you're absolutely right that headbands can look great with short hair. But mine is cut in so many layers around my face that when I wear a headband the layers stick out in every possible direction.

I am wearing one right now. I can't stand my hair being in my face when I am hunched over my computer so these things are a Godsend imo.

I have a really classy muted taupe leopard print headband that I wear. It was $5 on sale at Banana Republic. Actually, Target has some really cute, sorry, adult looking headbands.

I'd like to have a sterling or bronze headband, though...thin with a few short teeth. I'd be temporarily blind for that fashion accessory. Let someone else drive.

Banana clips do not look good on anyone.

As for right now, it's kind of annoying to have the teachers at my kids school semi-scolding me for walking the halls (when visiting the kids school). Although I do enjoy the priceless looks on their faces when I say "excuse me" ?

I'm sure when I'm a grandma (which better not happen for another 20 years, damn teenagers ! ) I'll appreciate the whole looking younger thing.

I don't purport to tell anyone what they "should" or "shouldn't" wear.

But, if you are going for a cute look, I think that on older women headbands look better if they are part of a styled look, rather than just thrown on. Think wide headband, hair with a little body (a la Jackie O), nice cardigan set. I think that 60s-type style can look classy on women of any age. But, if we are talking letting hair airdry flat and sticking a headband in it, then unless you are a teenager it won't look great. Also, with the plastic headbands hair needs some body; if your hair is flat, go with a cloth band headband.

I have never worn headbands except for working out, but I just got bangs (I LOVE THEM!!!) and suddenly headbands are really cute!
