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)
