The 'Face-kini' & 9 Other Hilarious Head Accessories (PHOTOS)

The true definition of Hat Hair
Ever heard of a  face-kini? Neither had I ... 'til a few days ago. It's basically a bikini, but for your face, and this mask is all the rage in coastal parts of China. Yup, definitely not making this up, folks. Though it seems a little silly, the 'kini cover-up is the Shandong province's answer to sunburn. Women wear it to keep away those hot rays. Clever.

Buuutttt it's also pretty creepy. Ok, like really freakin' creepy. Don't get me wrong -- I'm all for proper sun protection -- but this? Too far. How would you recognize friends? Your child? And doesn't it get super HOT up under there?

My fellow Americans, we're victim to the weird accessory craze too. It's, like, home of the free, land of the silliest head gear. Our reigning leader? Lady Gaga.

The pop diva has taught us that we should always pair our fashion with some edge. Some serious over-the-top edge. Lady G has practically paved the way for wild and strange out-of-this-world headwear. So with that, I proudly present to you nine more of the most outrageous, silliest, and fun headpieces we've seen. It's about to get cray cray up in here, y'all.

Would you ever wear a face-kini? Would you ever put your kids in one?

    Ah, the ultimate tease. Is it a snack for us to share? Is it not a snack for us to share? That is the question. (I'm going with not, BTW.)

  • Doctor Masks

    Now I know, I know, there's a reason some folks step out decked out in these. I know it's because they're on the way to surgery or use them for medical reasons or have a bad case of germaphobia -- or all of the above. But when Average Joe is walking down the street with this on, it's a weeeee bit petrifying, not gonna lie.

  • A Crown of Sorts

    Just to clear this one up: The crown does NOT include the cat-face; that's just the mannequin. But when I look at the crown I see the Evil Queen in Snow White, don't you? And let's be real here: Who wants to be remembered as an evil queen?

    I think this is cool and all, and I can totally appreciate the nod to the ancient plebes of Athens and Sparta, but excuse me for asking -- where the H would you ever wear this?

  • Sea Inspired Fascinator

    I'd imagine Ariel, Sebastian, Flounder, and Ursula would be all over this sea-inspired fascinator. But it's a little dolphin caught in a net for the rest of us, I think. Unless, of course, you're headed out to a Save the Sea Life event and you want to make a huge splash. (Get it?)

    Etsy, $240.00

  • Flowers and Fall Fascinator

    I like your leaves, girl. I see you're in the fall spirit. Or wait? The spring spirit, right? With the flower? Fall and spring season? Anyway, love your 'fascinator.' It's really fascinating but forgive me for asking -- how did you fit into the car with that thing on your head?

  • Greek Goddess Headbands

    I'm torn. I want to like this cute goddess headband but it's a little ... outdated. And forgive me for asking the most obvious question ever, but who would go to a party like this unless it was Halloween?

    $16, Urban Outfitters

  • Skull Headband

    Whatever you do, just don't look the skull in the eye!

  • Animal Inspired Headpieces

    This is going to be an issue for everyone who's deathly afraid of creepy, crawly spiders. So good luck starting up a conversation with anyone!
