1. Retro glam and Art Deco style beaded silver flower headband. Pairs perfectly with a 1920's straight flapper style dress or a little black dress.

2. Rhinestone flower headbands sparkle plenty and look great paired with bright bold colors or classic black.

3. Spangled bows add Wow to an everyday school outfit. They also look great when you're on stage!

4. This small silver mesh bow headband adds a little dazzle to an everyday preppy styles outfit or a cute summer dress topped with a cardigan.

5. Groovy girls everywhere need a go-to headwrap and this one is soft, silky and so pretty. Wear it with your favorite long flowing skirt and puffy blouse or tank, of course, and wear it over loose flowing hair or a braid. This wrap keeps your hair neat in a convertible, at the beach or out for a stroll in the meadow.

6. This animal print hair wrap is soft, silky and thick enough to keep back even the most untamed tresses. Pair it with other animal prints, if you dare, especially  with a little black tank and a short black skirt over cheetah print tights and ballet flats.

7. Gold and bronze beaded applique headband. It packs a big punch but it's actually very light and stays put on straight or curly hair. Darker metallics shine brightly on cool autumn days and nights and pair beautifully with a preppy dark blazer over jeans or a subtly dark sparkled evening dress.

8. A dark beaded headwrap is all the rage on the red carpet and the big screen. Wear it across the forehead for an earthy look (like Paris Hilton and Mischa Barton), or up above the hairline over a tight bun. 

9. A simple double gold braided headband can be all things to almost all people. This looks terrific over a pixie cut, an updo, across the forehead, or simply up top, crowning your everyday glory. Blondes should beware of gold headbands, as they may blend into the hair and get lost.

10. A trio of thin braided metallic headbands come in gold, silver and bronze to add a metallic touch to any style. Pick one to match your mood, your outfit or your other accessories.

I'm not sure whether you have actual depression or not (Ask your doctor if you feel you do, they'll be able to help. ^^), but I'm really sorry you feel depressed. I've been there too, and it really does feel like no one cares.   I know you said it's awkward, but try talking to your dad about it. You said he's the only one who seems to listen, so I'm sure he will listen and try to understand. If you start feeling really depressed every day, try doing things to make you feel happier. I don't know what you like to do, but you should do things like relaxing, reading, talking to people and spending more time outside. Smiling more often can help relieve stress and make you happier as well. c: Try meeting new people too. It seems as though your current friends are bringing you down, so you can try to talk to them if you like or find more friends who'll listen and care about you (however, try to keep your old friends as well. They are your friends after all, and it's hard being lonely). You've got friends on here too. But please don't think about doing anything harmful to yourself. You might not be thinking like that now, but being depressed can lead people to this and it's really not the answer.  Good luck! ^u^
