Heads Up! Get Chanel Style for $7 With the Sephora Collection Gold Chain Headband

Published in: Hair, Product Reviews, Sephora

When I strolled into Sephora last Saturday allegedly to just “look around,” I thought I might succumb to one or two of my usual impulse buys — maybe an eyeliner, makeup remover or a bottle of nail polish.


What happened, instead, was the last thing I expected…

I had a hair epiphany.

I’ve been going about my days happy as a long-haired lark with Goody’s Headwraps for a few months, blissfully slicking my bangs back with them almost every day. I like not having to fuss with my hair, and headbands are great for that, but lately I’ve had the urge to try something new. Maybe something more chic and sophisticated that I could wear with a cute dress and high heels.

Thing is, I have the hardest time finding good headbands, and by good I mean headbands that stay put and don’t squeeze my head like a vice.

I don’t know what it is… Maybe something happened that time I fell off the monkey bars and landed on my head. 😮

So at Sephora last week, as I rifled through the sale bin, I didn’t expect what I found. I saw gold, black and leather, and snatched it lightning fast. “OOH!” I thought, hypnotized. “Looks kinda like a Chanel bag…”

It was just $7, so I decided to get it. I figured, heck, if it gives me a headache, I’ll wear it as a bracelet instead (or let Tabs have it for his accessories drawer).

As it turns out, this little number has been quite a gem. Not only is it comfortable, but it stays where it’s supposed to without sliding off my head.

Pretty, too. 🙂 Doesn’t it look more expensive than it is (like something you’d find for $30 at a fancy store)?

I like it so much that I’m going back tomorrow to look for the white leather version I also saw but didn’t bring home. That one had a silver chain; I hope it’s still there.


AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores (I haven’t found it online)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Two words: French fries. That’s all I’m sayin’.

P.P.S. What are you doing tonight? Did you eat in or go out?

  6. I think I’ve said it before, but you look really cute in a headband, Karen! I, on the other hand, look RIDICULOUS. I’ve tried many, many times and it just doesn’t work for me. I think it’s the shape of my head….:/

    So pretty Karen! What a great inexpensive find. 🙂

    Too bad I didn’t see this post before I went to Sephora last Friday. I finally splurged on a Tocca fragrance that I’ve wanted for so long.
