Would You Wear a Hippie Headband Like Nicole?

This fall, we’re all about headbands.  Not only do they bring preppy glamour to the ladies of Gossip Girl, they also rescue us from our own bad hair days.  But we just aren’t as sure about the latest incarnation of this hair accessory–the hippie headband.  Nicole Richie wore a bejeweled version by Jennifer Behr recently, opting for a sparkling take on the retro head gear that looks more glam than Woodstock.  We think she pulls it off to a dazzling degree, but we can accept that it’s probably not for everyone. We want to know:  Would you wear a hippie headband?

Maybe I personally wouldn’t try it, unless I had the perfect outfit to pull it off, but I think Nicole looks adorable with it! And that sparkly one makes her eyes stand out!

Although Nicole looks cute, it’s not for me..i wouldn’t wear it unless it’s halloween and i have a costume

Nope, nope and nope. I am with Diane…”make it go away.”

WOW, what are they going to come up with next. Makes her look like she has a big head. Looks cheap.

It makes her hair look limp and scraggley, which totally brings to mind a trailor park. (Her wife-beater and peeking-out bra probably aren’t doing her any favors, either.) So no. I would not wear a hippie head-band.

Kat on

i wouldn’t, it doesn’t look good on her at all either. But some people can pull it off.

i think it looks ridiculous. honestly i have seen people wear them and i think its totally stupid. i wouldnt be seen in one

Dorothy on

Its not a good look in general and its old-you just can’t make it look modern in any way. I am joining Diane’s team “Make it go away”!!!!
