Hair accessories like hair ribbons have been a huge trend recently. And honestly, combined with the right outfit they suddenly don’t look like a children’s accessory anymore. But as usual with fashion statements, some of these hair accessories look so quirky, they are not really suitable for your usual office environment.

I have been so fascinated with this trend, I actually went and made a list for you with 20 crazy hair accessories I wouldn’t wear to work!

Oversized hair bows*

These big hair bows* were all over this summer. I wonder if Sia started this trend?

Anyways. As fun as they are as a fashion statement, for most jobs, these hair accessories would probably rather seem unfitting.

Shiny cat ears headband*

Who needs a Snapchat filter when you can just wear crystal cat ears* in real life? The seller advertises this headband as “bringing a feminine touch to your favorite look this season.” And it will definitely look cute! But not quite the right look for working in a corporate office…

80’s style lace hair bow*

Oh, how the 80’s are back! This headband* comes with an oversized black lace hair ribbon on top. Perfect for any motto party, but not so much for a “serious” environment.

Black rose hair clips*

If you are feeling either really fancy or looking for some goth vibes, this hair clip* can definitely help out with that! But I would definitely feel weird wearing this to work.

Creepy hair ties with eyes*

These hair ties* are perfect for your next Halloween party. Creepy and super easy to use. But unless you generally go for a creepy fashion style, they probably won’t become part of your daily attire.

20’s style flapper headband*

I am low-key smitten with the look of this flapper headpiece*. It clearly channels the Roaring Twenties look and I would definitely wear it for the right occasion!

But imagining showing up in the office like that? Uhmmm, no thanks!

Golden head chain with drop pendant*

While this head chain*definintely has a very nice boho style to it, I have a hard time picturing Linda from accounting wearing it when presenting last month’s numbers.

Honest question: Does anyone wear those chains other than for pictures? Anyone? Just asking for a friend with curly, tangly hair who needed external help to get rid of her head chain. She is fine now, thank you.

Headwear for unicorn lovers*

This unicorn headband* marries the unicorn trend with the revival of headbands. Could you use it as a photo prop for a children’s birthday? Sure! But I bet you that festival season will also see a lot of golden horned unicorns dancing around.
