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 guess they got out of bed too late after a night on the town and didn’t have a change to do their hair so let it loose and the band is keeping it away from their eyes…
still don’t like it.

TO EACH THEIR OWN … BUT I REALLY WISH SOME CELEBRITY WOULD BRING BACK OR START A “TREND” OF DRESSING VERY CLASSIC TEA LENGTH PENCIL SKIRTS WITH HEELS AND A NICE SHIRT .. VERY SIMPLE CLASSIC LOOK! EVERYTHING TO ME NOW LOOKS VERY THROWN TOGETHER AND MESSY. WE CAN LOOK BACK TO SOME GREAT FASHION IN HISTORY BUT THE LAST 3-4 DECADES OF FASHION NEEDS TO STAY IN THE PAST!

Looks dumb. Really, really dumb.

It’s just another one of those things celebrities can pull of because they are celebrities. Because it is mk and nicole you sort of expect off beat/different choices 60% of the time. If it was a girl at the grocery store you would just think she was a hippie or maybe give a weird look.

They both need to throw this look out ASAP and eat a cheeseburger.

As much as I hate to admit it, it makes Mary Kate look like a drugie. I mean come on. She was so cute when she was a young teen WHAT HAPPENED? The Olsen twins are defintaly not someone I will encourage my daughter to look up to.

Mara on

Heck no. I’m sorry but those things are ugly.

No way headbands are just wrong. They must be suffering from not getting enough food to think they look good.

Rebecca on

Ewww…. yuck! I agree- they’ve lost me on this one. The head scarves look pretty and keep the hair off your face. The forehead bands on the other hand, look greasy and serve no purpose.

I think Lindsey Lohan started this first, wearing the thicker scarves around her head this way while at the beach. In that sense, it was okay, because it looked more like a bandana and at the beach, it had a reason, to keep your hair in place–but this skinny little band around your head looks really lame…like they got drunk and their headbands slipped down and they are unaware.

Nah! And the funny thing is, they probably paid more than the $44 Brad paid for his wrinkled shirt for these headbands (at least Nicole–MK’s is her or someone else’s hair). I could see them in US next week–being offered at the reasonable price of ONLY $79!!! LOL…not at all attractive.
