Try These Thick Headbands For a Quick Fivehead Fix

We've all got our insecurities and, while I consider myself to be confident, there are times when I look in the mirror and feel faced with simply too much face. The battle with my forehead leads to some bang-up experimentation for that extra surface area.

While I agree that bangs can change your look for less commitment than a full cut, picking up a headband comes with even less liability. An alternative to the thinner, hippie-style trend, you can hide your bangs or face space with wide bands like this pretty beaded accessory on Salma Hayek or other headbands, scarves, and headpieces in the widget below.

PERFECT for day when that big pimple on your forehead refuses to conceal!!!

I recently bought a fantastic headband in Barcelona. Regrettably, I ended up looking like a motorcyclist since the crown of my head isn't very high. I think you need to tease your hair a lot or something so that it shows beyond the headband, otherwise it looks strange. Guess like my five-finger forehead will just deal with the bangs :)

The thing that cracks me up about this is that covering up a fivehead just draws more attention to it.

These handbands are cute, but I feel like very few people can pull it off well. I think the best way to disguise a big forehead is with a certain haircut, but I really don't think big foreheads are the worst things in the world. Look at someone like Alexis Bledel (Rory from Gilmore Girls). She is very stunning with her big forehead, and she usually doesn't cover it up but embraces it.

if someone has a big fivehead, and it's obvious, and all the sudden they show up with this giant headband thing over it, i would automatically think they were trying to conceal unless you're nicole richie, like psterling says, i wouldn't go there!

That one girl with the Mica metallic headband on has a lot of boob showing. Seriously, is that necessary?

I think that Nicole Richie and only Nicole Richie can pull this off. If I saw someone walking down the street like this I'd laugh my a** off!

I dont like headbands always, maybe cause I dont have a wide forehead, or I can try something like thinner headbands.... I just not that kind of style....-_-!
