Default Should grown women wear headbands?

I'm not talking scrunchies either. I'm talking full on upside down U-shaped headbands (the plastic ones )!



I got up this morning and it was raining and I mean hard! While I was doing my hair I said to my self I know my hair is going to get wet and when it gets wet, it's going to hang grossly against my skin. Knowing my skin is super sensitive

(plug any dermatologist specializing in Black skin here),

I did not want to deal with that! So after brush my hair I grabbed the nearest thing possible, which was one of my daughters headbands. When I looked in the mirror I had unsure feelings about how my hair looked. On the one hand it was definitely functional (it pulled my hair back), on the other it made me look younger than I wanted to.

Needless to say I am sitting here at work with the headband still in my hair and I don't care dammit!


LOL

Do you still wear head bands?

I wear headbands when I work out or when doing chores where hair on my face is a total irritant (as in gardening). I don't think there's anything wrong with a grown woman wearing headbands.

I did up until I cut my hair in shorter layers. I had some really cool ones -- beaded, braided ribbon, etc. I do wear them to the gym, the stretchy kind, to keep my hair out of my eyes.

The whole "should grown women wear ..." debate seems silly to me. The best thing about being a grown woman is that you can do what you want.

Headbands, even cutsey plastic ones, look good on just about every women of any age.

Yep , guilty as charged. I have very fine hair and it always flops down and to be honest I quite like Headbands. I have some turtleshell ones, and velvet ones. Simple and effective and it goes with my "Preppy" style ( please no throwing of rotten vegetables - it is the style which suits me best).

I have to say...it depends. There are some that do NOT look good on a grown women...but there are some that are SWANK. Just mull through Anthropologie at the overpriced gotta-make-one-of-thoseS. Etsy offers some reasonable facsimiles.

I wear glasses, therefore headbands are out. Too much competition on my head.

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.

LOL at banana clips!! So true!

I wear headbands. They were my best friend in Florida last summer. I really like the cute thin ones that have several bands together. I think they can look casual to dressy easily depending on the medium.

When I'm cooking and cleaning I always put a hairband on. When it's hot as he$$ too It doesn't matter what age you are as long as you feel good.
