  • Just Me, or Do People Wear Dorky Beauty Trends at Your Office?

  • I think I looked like a complete tool today at work. See, I wore my headband like this -- inspired by Mischa Barton and, (ohh, why lie?), a funky bartender who looked like the third and long-lost Olsen Twin.

  • A long-standing vet of many cutesy hippie hairstyles, I thought I could pull it off. I shoulda been clued in when the receptionist told me, "The roaring '20s are holding on line one."

  • But I wasn't. Only when the CEO (a dude) conducted a staff meeting while wearing a headband (stolen from our beauty closet), certain he was "missing out on some kind of 'theme' day," did I slink back to my desk and do this quick style instead.

  • What did I do so wrong? Is this one of those looks only celebrities can pull off?

  • * If you're not into hippie hair, maybe this braided style is more your thing

  • * Find the hairstyle that's best for every haircut

  • * Oh, who doesn't love cute hair accessories??

    • That headband thing was back from Twiggy and worked back then, the whole band major look thing went out in the 80\'s, and I finally got rid of mine when a few years ago my husband and son asked me when the circus rolled into town.

    • A hippie headband! I used to work with a 45-year-old woman who wore Hello Kitty! baby t-shirts to work on casual Fridays. Some trends are better left at home, in the closet. Kudos for having the cajones to try it out--and the sense to let it go.

    • Love the hairstyle, but not at work! I think we\'ve all fallen victim to attempting a trend at work that should be reserved for nights out or weekends at the beach. I think anybody can pull this off as long as it\'s worn with confidence. I\'m sure it was cute, just the wrong place to wear it.
