I love the way my hair looks when I push my sunglasses back onto my head. Would I be mad therefore to consider using a good old Alice Band to create the same effect or would I just look like an aging Sloane Ranger which I probably am
I know what you mean about liking the effect of sunglasses on head. I use thin elastic hairbands from Superdrug - you can get them in cream, brown, or black to match different hair colours. You barely notice them when they're on but they hold your hair back off your face and have a rubber coating on the other side so they don't slip around.
I find this too, but I worked out its because the sun glasses only pull the sideas back and don't sit tight on the top of my head so the hair is looser. If I wear an alice band it's too tight and as I don't have a fringe and very straight hair, makes me look a bit slap head.
