Hmmmm... I still have a kind of tiara thing that I wore at my wedding. Should I dust it off ready for work tomorrow. The one in the main picture doesn't look like a tiara, it looks like a headband.

The pictures don't look like what I would call a 'tiara'. They are sparkly Alice bands. I think they look a bit rubbish, in any case - but then, I am no fan of an Alice band on an adult woman (find on little girls - adorable, in fact).

Yep more a sparkly headband. Which I still wouldn't wear.

I agree that's not a tiara. Its a nice Alice band. I think tiaras have to have some, if small, hight.

What do you do with headlines ending in a question mark?

1 - that's not a tiara
2 - you do not look polished and put together

Sorry but she looks silly,

My job doesn't require me to dress up very formally, can get away with jeans if I have no clients or meeting, but I seriously doubt people will think I'm polished and put together if I showed up in one.

If they could just say "shiny hair things are not just for children and weddings" they might have a point.

But that's not a business tiara.

Even if you were a busy executive how much time does it take to put a tiara on before your gala confused

FrancesFarmer Sun 07-Dec-14 12:43:20

They are headbands. I've always found headbands very uncomfortable to wear - am I the only one?

Nope, it's just a sparkly headband. I like the look of them (not for work) but can't wear them because they are all too big for my head! Also, they are a look for bright young things, not middle aged women, sadly.

Um, Cleopatra wore the pharaonic crown of Egypt on her head, not a tiara. Lady Gaga and Madonna aren't really office-wear role models, and what you wear to a wrap party isn't what you wear to the office. And what they are describing seems to be a selection of glittery headbands not tiaras.

Apart from that, the article's fine.

I wear a lot of hairbands with my hair up like that but they are plain black

I wear head bands and tiaras almost everyday and have done since I was a teenager. Plain, sparkly or otherwise. I like them and think they suit me.

Its just another accessory to wear with your outfit/clothes.

Well my tiara is firmly on ready for my appraisal this morning! ;)

Well, if this is ok, I'm going to carry my Little Lady Business Barbie pink glittery briefcase tomorrow.

This is a real thing?
I saw a woman on the tube this afternoon wearing a sparkly headband betwixt her forehead and hairline, disappearing into a roll at the back. My first thought was that she'd had a up-do ready for an evening event but it wasn't 'done' and polished enough to be that.
She was wearing a business suit and knee boots.

If Elsa has taught us nothing else, surely it's that throwing your tiara away is the route to independence, happiness and success in errrr, ice skating.

HermioneWeasley Mon 08-Dec-14 21:12:19

Agree, they are fancy hair bands

I prefer sparkly cat ears myself.

If you are going to dress like you are 4 and you don't give a hoot what anyone thinks, you'd be as well go the whole hog.

Plus some sparkly fairy wings too. Today I am the flying fairy kitten.
