Splurge or Steal? Headband Edition

When it comes to hair accessories, price tags can be surprising. Take, for instance, the hair bow that originally retailed for $575 that could be duplicated quite easily with a trip to the fabric store and about five minutes of gluing and tying. While you might not have nearly 400 bones to fork over for a little white bow (and let's face it — who does?), can you spot which headband is the splurge and which one's the steal? There's only one way to find out . . .

Which fine-feathered headband costs almost $100 more than the other?

2 of 5

One of these black floral headbands is almost $300. Which one is it?

3 of 5

One of these silvery headbands costs $65, and the other is $6.50. Which one is the more expensive of the duo?

4 of 5

There's no gray area here. Which black-and-white checked headband costs almost 22 times more?

5 of 5

One of these bow-tied headbands is patent leather, and the other is pleather. Which one is leather?

Oh my gosh...I really blew that one!! I just returned a headband I bought at Nordstrom's after finding a similar one at the drugstore for about a third of the price!

5/5 but I didn't get my final result. :? Ayway, I like a few of the expensive ones like the patent Miu Miu. The prices are silly, I would search for a lookalike if I really wanted one of the expensive ones.

4/5, yeah! Just goes to show you that you can get items that cost less and still look just as good, if not better. I love the look of Burberry items, but they are so expensive!

4/5 ... the most I would spend on a headband is 10 bucks!

4/5! A couple were easy, it was the same model. So I figured she kept wearing the expensive ones. That first one threw me off, it looks horrible. Better be the best bird feathers in the world for that price!

...how come the expensive ones don't look as good? @.@ Comfort is another thing that would come into play though.

I don't like headbands, they always hurt my head! Plus, paying these outrageous prices for something that is trendy for a minute is just dumb!

5/5, but what kills me is that the more exspensive floral headband doesn't even look as good as the one you can get from Free People/Urban Outfitters.

3/5, it was easier to tell the quality if there was no model wearing it!

3/5. I was guessing based on the effort of the picture (lighting, model, and quality)
