I’m fairly sure this headband is for adults…
Not 100% sure, mind you, but maybe 75%.
LOL! It was like when I saw those Hello Kitty gardening gloves at Target last week. It was only when I looked closely that I realized, “Oh! These are for kids. Crap.”
So, yeah, it is distinctly possible that this terry cloth Hello Kitty Cosmetic Headband by Earth Therapeutics ($7) was made for kids, but you know what?
I don’t care…’CAUSE IT’S DOPE.
First, it’s only $7, which, hello! — isn’t bad at all for something this practical (I could easily use it every day).
It’s basically just a headband to keep your hair off your face while you’re removing your makeup, applying your makeup, giving yourself a facial or doing anything else where you want to keep your hair out of your face.
But it’s, like, the cutest headband ever. That red Hello Kitty bow is adorable! And there’s an embroidered Hello Kitty patch next to the Earth Therapeutics logo on the back — perfect for when someone is standing behind you wondering why you’re wearing an oversized headband with a red bow… You could just point to the patch and be like, “It’s Hello Kitty, b*tch.”
Besides the high cuteness factor, it’s also technically a very effective headband. I could spend hours rubbing the terry cloth against my face, ahh…
It’s incredibly soft and plush — like how I imagine the real Hello Kitty’s fur feels in real life.
Uh…not that I’m in my 30s or anything.
I like how wide it is, too. It’s wide enough to keep my mane contained when I’m washing my face, even the baby hairs in my bangs.
My only minor quibble is with the fit. It’s a little tight (possibly due to the fact that it may or may not have been made for kids, LOL!). You might want to keep your receipt juts in case it’s too snug for ya. I’ve only had mine for about a week, and I’m hoping it stretches out.
I got it at Ulta, but I see that it’s also available online.
