Headbands: A ray of hope for flat headed girls

I've never been a lady for hair accessories. I've tried time and time again, but the bows slip and the pins tumble to the floor, leaving my hair in a lusterless, unaccesorized curtain. Terribly heart wrenching, I know. And I'd never even considered headbands, for the simple reason that the top of my head is flat. (Like, balance-your-soda-on-it flat. Thankfully nobody notices until they make me wear a hat or put my hood up.) However, on a recent shopping trip with my sister, we were in Urban Outfitters, admiring the lovely selection of headbands, and Claire just insisted I try one. She's been on a headband kick herself these days, and she happens to look painfully adorable in them, so I conceded. And lo and behold, it looked totally cute! How strange. At any rate, it was an overpriced teal wool thing that I bought anyways because it just looked so damn cute. So, in conclusion, if any of you ladies out there have the same troubles I do, the headband is really a great and inexpensive remedy to the situation.

nigel is hot, but he can be a bit humourless.

I used to think headbands were a bit too cutesy or Lauren from the Hills, but lately a lot of them look very chic. Plus, at Catholic school there aren't many other options for spicing up uniforms.

i love head accessories in general, but sunglasses kind of squeeze my brain... maybe my head's just too big for such delicate prettiness
