Did you notice how many stars were wearing headbands at the Golden Globes this year? I did and it has set off yet another one of those Hollywood trends. Now if we want to look like Michelle Williams, Busy Phillips or Charlize Theron, we have to go back to the 60’s and get fitted out with our very own one. So, did they add to the gorgeous outfits of the night or were they a frightful addition that should not have been seen on the red carpet? I think they evoke a touch of the whimsy playfulness in all of us; they seem to say ‘Don’t take me too seriously, I certainly don’t!’ And we all love a down to earth Hollywood celebrity do we not? So here at Shopperbase we have banded (see what I did there?) together the best of the headbands for you to pick through. See what you think:
