Head torture

I read a statistic recently, somewhere, that over 60% of women that wear headbands report headaches. I am not alone! I'd like to think my big head is a reflection of my giant brain, but man do headbands hurt my head. I'm prone to headaches anyways, so I don't wear them often, but I love the look of a good headband. I've mentioned before that my hair is growing out from a very short cut, so the need to tame my hair is increasing. Here are my picks for some headbands, weather or not they'll hurt my head, is a whole other issue.
This simple beauty has an antique, romantic feel.
Beaded Applique Headwrap $24

Gray is neutral and the flowers add textural interest.
Spectral Jessamine Headband $38

I like the colors in this one (I have super dark hair so it'll stand out) and if it hurts my head, I've spent very little money.
Colorblock Striped Headband $1.60

The red and white has a fun, retro feel that I adore.
Cherry Wallflower Lotus Flexible fabric headband $9

Does this look like an eye to you? Regardless, the colors are beautiful.
Peacock blue and green feathers headband $15

This would instantly dress up a white t and jeans.
Triple Band Metallic Elastic Headband $24.50

So my hunt for the painless headband begins. I'll let you know when I find it! Until then, any suggestions?

Great finds with these headbands! I, too, have found myself suffering through a headband headache. Oh well. Nothing can cure a bad-hair day like a headband, so I guess it's worth it.

I adore headbands--the way they look at least. But I too can hardly stand wearing them for very long. That red and white one is soo lovely!

Lovely picks and that is so interesting about that statistic. It really makes sense though!

I too get headaches from my headbands! Sadly, my favorite headband is the one that causes the most suffering :(

BTW, your blog banner is perfectly lovely!!

These finds are all beautiful. I love the gray and red headbands you found!

I enjoy headbands but they often hurt me, too. I find that headscarves are the least painful, however, it's a very casual look.

I am on the hunt for an adorable think black headband with a simple flat bow. [I'm thinking a very Blair Waldorf look].

I keep buying the normal ones, even though they always hurt. I just only wear them for a few hours at a time. Mostly, out at parties.
