Would you wear it? Forehead Bands

08/25/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

I know that Nicole Richie already wears head scarfs all the time and that Mary-Kate Olsen is known for her quirkier fashion choices, but are they serious with these across the forehead headbands? They look like a  combination of 80’s aerobic-instructor sweatbands, Matthew McConaughey’s workout gear and an elementary school Pocahantas costume. Is Mary-Kate’s actually made out of hair? I am all for trying new ideas and accessories (and I think these two are some of the better risk-takers around), but they have lost me on this one.  Tell us: What do you think? Would you wear this look? Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I thought they were cute when Olivia Newton John made them popular in the 80’s, and wore one then! Although I wouldn’t where one now in my 40’s, I would definately encourage my daughters to wear them!

I hate it, it looks hideous. The head scarf is ok but this…no way.

Oh my Gohh! No thank you!
I most def like Nicole Richie and her style, but she has lost me (as she has lost Melissa) on this one!!!
But I look forward to her next try outs….

The headband look that Nicole and Mary-Kate wear reminds me of the gypsy/hippie look of the 70’s. They are both beautiful girls who love to take fashion risks, so I guess it’s just their thing to try to start new trends! :) If they really like this look, more power to them, but I personally don’t like it.

This look is ridiculous. Can I mention how HORRIBLY ugly Mary Kate looks. People will probably start wearing this retarded look because the celebs wear it. You would neverrrrr catch me wearing this. Looks like they’re going to a pow wow.

i think it’s cute (as seen on Mary Kate)if you are dressed hippie-like but that’s only when it’s cute. otherwise you would look like you are going to jazzer-size class (as seen on Nicole).

They look absolutely ridiculous! I don’t get these so-called “trends” at all. There was a reason people stopped copying Jane Fonda in 1985….the look was already over by then! Seriously, they’re not unique or original. They’re just trying to step back in time….and not a very fashionable time.

I really think that its looks great, totally refreshing new look, well even though it might a repeat i say why not! Also i really think people should be open to ‘all’ fashion types whether old or new. So comon people dont be so closed and boring…just let it ride!! x

they look a little hungry…maybe they were aiming for their waists and just got mixed up due to the lack of nutruition.
Its funny they both want to be these “trendsetters” and they end up trying all sorts of stupid looking outfits and accesories until one finally catches on. heres hoping this one isn’t it.

at least mary kate dresses herself.

I alsolutely love Nicole and i think she has an amzing style. I also love MK (But not so much her fashion sense). However, i do not think this look is flattering at all. they should stick to the headscarf, which i think is sooo cute.
