Love hats, but hate hat hair? We so relate. Things get even stickier when you throw freezing winds into the equation. And God knows what persnickety motherf**kers ears can be during the winter.
Enter your savior: headbands and headwraps. Whether your boho, vintage sweetheart, or straight out of a Russian romance novel — we’ve got you covered with these 10 picks.
Fashion is often a balancing act, and this Asos headband is a perfect example of how to do it. For starters, it’s a hair accessory that’s almost jewelry-like thanks to its gold wire form. Second, you get the girly “Alice in Wonderland” edge with a sweet bow, but the look is not too flamboyant or child-like. Throw it on as a subtle yet glitzy extra to an evening ensemble, or make it a classy and surprising touch for your everyday jeans and tee ensemble.
We all have those momentary lapses in judgment when we make purchases we regret (see: nipple tassels, sequin leggings, full-body Spanx). But why on earth someone would buy these Topshop antlers is beyond us. For $160, we wonder just how, exactly, one would get “good use” out of them? The only explanation we could think of is if you somehow have six very fancy costume parties coming up and plan on dressing as Rudolph to all of them. Otherwise, you’d have to be really, really drunk to think spending $160 on an antler headband is a good idea. [Topshop] Keep reading »

Even though Blair Waldorf is weaning herself off headbands now that “Gossip Girl” has gone to college, we’re still digging cute crap we can wear on our heads, and apparently Karl Lagerfeld is, too.
Lagerfeld photographed a story for the October issue of Italian Elle, that transformed a male model into a Ken-like doll (he has a bulge but no reproductive organs) and added interesting accessories atop model Ikeliene Strange’s head. You thought Lady Gaga‘s hair bow was wild? That was nothing compared to a colander, a heel, and a telephone. [Design Scene]

When Madonna arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala wearing a pair of wonky bunny ears and thigh-high stripper boots, we had to laugh. But when the look showed up in her latest Louis Vuitton ad campaign, they didn’t look so horrible. In fact, they looked kind of classy, yet playful. Keep reading »
Personally, I am a huge fan of headbands. I love them in all colors and all sizes, especially the large, unnecessarily flamboyant ones. After being inspired by so many brave fashion risk-takers in movies like Sex & the City I was beginning to wonder if that woman really does exist in real life. Meet Robyn English… Keep reading »
