Headband: Red or Blue?

Gossip Girl hasn't even started this season, but my obsession with headbands persist. The other day while I was buying a simple clip for my hair (it is way too big by the way), I came across this Cara headband and fell in love with it.
It's just so simple and understated, with a feminine but elegant bow on the side that doesn't make me look like a little girl. The subtle shiny navy blue color subtly contrasts with my black hair, making it appear even more black, which effectively is the effect I aim for. It's the perfect headband to carry me into fall, since it's so subtle I can probably wear it with everything.

The problem of course is that it comes in a variety of colors and I'm wavering between the navy blue and the deep maroon red color. My first instinct was to pick up the blue, but then I caught sight of the red and the red is so nice too. It also contrasts with my dark hair beautifully, but while the navy blue is subtly elegant, the red pops and makes a statement. It won't be as versatile as the navy blue, but it'll definitely be special.

So if you were me, which one would you pick? Or is it nothing special at all (and that I was only in love with it because it happened to match the outfit I was wearing that day) and I'm better off without it?

Blue will most likely go with more outfits, and you know it makes your hair look darker - the look you're going for.

Both! But if you must, the blue.

If you do holidays, the red might be a good choice.

I would pick the blue one, because it is more elegant. You will know which one you should pick next time =)

It's beautiful in blue! I'm an avid headband-wearer, a no-brainer accessory to elevate simple outfits on bad hair days. So the one that is more likely to match outfits is better.

I started loving headbands after Gossip Girl too! Blair has such nice ones.

I say the red! It will make more of a statement and be much more noticeable. Red looks amazing in dark hair, as you said it contrasts very well :)

Red! I know that too many people have said blue for you to pick red... but it would look so much more interesting, and the cute detail would stand out a lot better! Why waste money buying something so adorable when no one will notice it anyways? Besides, it's not even really blue, it's navy, so it wouldn't look that great on black hair. Unless it was like a bright cobalt blue, I wouldn't go with it.

No no no. You have to go with the red! Your hair is dark. U can't do dark blue with dark hair, it'll blend. Red will make it pop!!!

Some people would not mind if you look like a little girl. To paraphrase: Sexyness is in the eye of the beholder.
