When Burberry unleashed the studded mania last fall, I thought it would be over by now. But nooooh! Instead it climbed all the way to the top: studded headbands, who would’ve thought?
Sourcing for inspiration in our very television culture, Jennifer Behr usually made easy-gossip girl headpieces only this time she thought a punk rock spin would be in order so behold the goth installment this Fall! (the story continues with more pictures right after the jump!)
I’m definitely in love with headbands. My curly, frizzy hair leaves me no other taming option than a chic hair piece to get through a bad hair day with my head up. I usually am my own stylist/designer, I make my own headbands using fabric leftovers or bow ties (oh, yes, did you know you could use velvet bow ties to make yourself the cutest and simplest headwrap ever?), hair accessories I don’t use anymore (colored bow pins that I attach to a simple head band) and so on. Now I admit I’m most puzzled by the goth turn of hair fashion!
For one I’m not easily turning to goth, no matter the fash-importance levels it’ll reach. And second: I can’t really see myself buckling the toddlers in their respective car seats while I’m wearing a studded headband! They get so easily tangled in my hair, I could hurt them with those spikes. But then again, it all looks so delicate and artfully put together chez Jennifer Behr, I could convince myself to give into temptation on one of those rare nights out me and my wonderful Husband magically share every now and then!
In the pro/cons column, the capital con is the price for Jennifer Behr’s headwraps. Being popular in the Hollywood ranks, instantly pumps the volume of the price tag. (the simplest studded headwrap costs $142 chez Jennifer Behr. Not easy to be a punk princess these days!) That plus the edgy feeling of this Fall 2009 Jennifer Behr head pieces collection put her beautiful pieces out of my reach. How about you? Are you (still) a headband girl? (I so wish they never go out of fashion!) Ready for the wrap some goth around your head this fall? (Teen Vogue via the Pipeline)
