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

YUCK! I hated the head scarf as well. The cute headbands are the hot things, please stop trying to reinvent something so hidious that took place back in the 70’s. It was meant for the 70’s, that’s why it hasn’t come back. I can understand stars wanting to try to reinvent a look, but please, if it was meant to come back, everyone on the street would be wearing this. The head scarf looked like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who would wear that? The Halo-Bands look ridiculous, do away with them.

i love the hippie era, i was raised by hippies, and wore this style headbands, alot in my younger years… as i got older, i converted to bandanas, (which i affectionately called my halo, and all my friends would ask me, where’s yer halo, if they saw me without one…) i had a different style and color for every day of the week, and was always complimented on them… i wore my hair loooong, and over the top of them, (just the front would show) and there’s a certain way to fold them, in order to get the design just right in front) i folded them for all my friends who wore them too. i love the look, altho, now, i probably wouldn’t wear them, just cuz i’m older, and would probably get some looks, doing so now, lol however, if i were goin on a nice long ride on the harley, (course yer leather jacket, will help pull this look off too) yup, i’d still wear ’em… i say go for it girls, whatever floats yer boat…

These headbands have come into style throughout each generation. Headbands over the forehead started in the 40s disappeared until the 60s. The 80s. And now fashion designers are trying to bring it back again.

Awww.. isn’t that cute.. both girls fell into a closet… and tried to dress themselves.
It looks as if they are trying to play dress up, to me. I think that half the time they both look like they need a scrubbing in a hot shower and a comb. Poor little things.

I find the similar dark roots and lighter ends of their blonde hairdos more remarkable than the headbands. As these are both waif-like women, what’s going on that they appear to be near-clones?

in australia this type of thing is considered normal. Especially in melbourne amongst chapel st. You’d be surprised in our style differences.
