Would You Wear a Headscarf Like CariDee?

Summer’s hot humid temperatures always spur us on to come up with creative ways to get the hair off our face. We’ve tried headbands, hats, a variety of clips and usually just end up resorting to boring elastics. One trick we’ve never tried is the full-on head wrap that CariDee English donned to stay cool at the opening of Tao Beach in Las Vegas. We think it’s a little over-the-top, and the skull-print don’t really help her cause. But she does look awfully cool in the scorching Vegas heat. Vote in our poll and then tell us: Would you hide your hair under a headscarf?

she looks DREADFUL!

I don’t mind the idea of a head wrap, but this one seems dangerously reminiscent of the style worn by 19th slave women in the South. I would hate for anyone to think that I was glamorizing or forgetting the horrible stain that the Atlantic slave trade left on this country. So, even if the wrap was not limited to slave days, I still say “NO,” to this particular style

Recently, I was telling my sister how head wraps and scarves should make a comeback. I have a high maintenance hairstyle. I have thick thick hair that I coax into a bob then wrap it at night (us Puerto Ricans call it “el doo bee”) and sometimes on the weekends, I don’t want to be bothered. She should have taken the extra material of the scarf, tied it to the back into a bun, and wore hoop or large earrings. I am going to start small like wearing a head wrap while gardening then to the store and so on.

I think she looks adorable. It’s no different than the headband or crazy hats. Stuff for the young.

I would not wear that! She looks like aunt jemana on crack

I think headwraps can be very cute, though I would never be able to pull it off. in this case, however, it looks like a mistake. Also, i think you have to have a small head to pull this off.

she looks a punk rock aunt jemima with a caribbean flair… what’s up with the skeleton faces? she-so-crazaay! what was she thinking???

She looks like a relative of Minnie Mouse – not a good look even for someone with a pretty face!

I might wear a headscarf. I think they can look chic. But I wouldn’t do it like this. She looks like she should be doing her Saturday cleaning instead of strutting her stuff as America’s Next Top Model.

if you take away that ridiculous thing, she actually looks good. she looks much more natural than she usually does with her tranny makeup.
