Hair accessory or torture device?

My hair was being slightly unruly this morning, so I decided to wear a headband to keep it out of my face. After a few hours, I had a horrible headache and felt like my head was in a vice. My seemingly innocent black plastic headband was slowly trying to crush my skull.

That got me thinking...what other beauty/fashion items are actually cruel, painful torture devices? After 5 minutes of thinking, this is all I could come up with.

High heels
Thong underwear
Pretty much any kind of surgical enhancement (boob jobs, Botox, lipo, collagen, etc)
Waxing/plucking (I don't need to know where)
High waisted pants (don't they by definition cause a wedgie in back and front?)

I can't wear headbands for very long. And I am with you on the high heels.

What about control top pantyhose? Or just pantyhose in general?

Remember those caps we used to have to wear to get our hair highlighted? Where they pull out a single strand of hair at a time until you look like a scarier version of a Chucky doll? Not only was the pulling the hair out excruciating, but taking the cap off left you with hair as tangled as last year's Christmas Lights. That. Was. Torture.
