Fab Finds of The Week: Headgear

Headgear received lukewarm praise a couple months back. But I see funky headbands and hats have caught some of your Fab Finding eyes. I for one have always liked headgear. Hats and headbands are a functional and cute way to give hair a day off. The hottest crop of headgear we are seeing is in the form of turbans, and while this look isn't for everyone, those knotted turban headbands I've been seeing are pretty irresistible - especially the ones in the jeweled toned spread in this month's Domino magazine. I was just on the hunt for one that wasn't $40 but more in the $5 range; my solution ended up being a score at a cheapo accessories store and some needle and thread - more on my D.I.Y. turban headband method later.

For now, the Fab Finder of the week is atripp for finding the black turban headband that jump started my search. FYI: every week the Fab Finder I announce Monday morning will receive either a TeamSugar or FabSugar baby tee shirt. I thoroughly enjoy perusing your Fab Finds every week, so dare to be a Fab Finding trendsetter and you just might win a Sugar tee!

I can't ever seem to pull these off, I really do try but It's not with me for some reason. I hate it too because of all the beautiful colors!

I'm a headgear fan. There are just those times when they save the day. I can't pull of the turban, though.

i'm becoming a big fan of headbands! i've got red, white, sparkly glitter, etc. i used to have a yellow one but then i dyed my hair blonde, so it doesn't look good. i'm currently on the prowl for more headbands!!

I wear headbands, but the turban thing is just odd.

I like the Marc Jacobs Plaid Bow Headband. I'm not really liking the Jersey Knot Turban Headband and even the Miu Miu Patent Headband... looks weird IMO

The turban headband reminds me of the towel turban thing a lot of girls (myself included) do. Headbands are hard to pull off.

I agree with most about the turbans-I'm just not feeling them; and while I think headbands always class up an outfit; they give me a headache after a while :(

I love headbands, but I definitely think you have to have a certain "look" or hair length to carry them off. I just got a cute zebra-striped silky one from H&M, but I can only wear it really with my hair up in a messy bun, otherwise it looks a bit strange.

I'm all about scarves and headbands, but I just can't get behind the little knotty turbans. They just look odd.

I've always liked headband gear, functional and practical. What a life saver especially for bad hair days and windy days. Great for the beach also. Not everyone can pull off the hat, but I think headbands are compatible for All .
