Stop the Cultural Appropriation: Alternatives to the Coachella Headdress
It's that time of year again! Coachella is coming up, and you know what that means: cultural appropriation. Nothing makes us quite as uncomfortable as the infamous Coachella headdress -- just take a look at the blog White People in Headdresses if you're not sure if you agree. This year, leave your offensive head wear at home (or don't even buy it in the first place). Here are some alternatives to keep you from offending an entire culture and looking like a jackass.
Hippie Runner Headbands
These sweat-wicking headbands are ultra cute and will keep your hair and sweat off your face in the Indio heat, unlike a headdress, which will only make you look like an idiot.
Floppy Sun Hats
Is there anything less offensive to an oppressed culture than a floppy sun hat? Keep the sun out of your eyes and cover up your greasy roots with a sun hat and nobody will feel targeted based on their ethnicity or religion.
Fresh Prince Snap Backs
$19.99, F as in Frank
Channel your inner Will Smith with these 90's style snap back hats that will not have anyone questioning whether or not you are making fun of their ancestry.
A cheap, easy option to keep your hair out of your face. Also a guaranteed way not to have people take pictures of you and shame you on the internet for dishonoring a sacred tradition.
You'll look pretty stupid wearing an umbrella hat at Coachella, but not nearly as dumb as you'll look wearing a Native American headdress.
