also, and this is for everyone out there, how much would you be willing to pay for one of these? if i do sell them, i would probably price them at $8 each or 2/$12...is that too high? too low?

Hellga, your bandana-headband is rockin! I love it. As far as selling them- I think $6-8 sounds pretty good  Smiley

just a tip for everyone else, as far as length goes, if you cut a fat quarter lengthwise into 4 pieces, they're exactly the right width and length, both!

Great idea to both the girls who thought of this. I send my DH a copy of the tut from the other poster. I cannot wait to make one for me. I also have crazy thick hair that is unrully at times and I needed something cute to tame it. Reg. headbands cause me to get major headaches.

Amy: That's exactly why I made these. Plastic or metal headbands that stop at the ears give me awful migraines, so I had to come up with something that was as cute but not as painful. Definitely give this a try. They are very comfortable.

i'm totally gonna make some of these for myself! the main change i'm gonna make, though, is i'm gonna use a velvety material for the inside, cause that keeps the headband from slipping back (i had one like that in high school). plus, then, you can reverse it to pretty velvet for a special evening out!

I have the same problem - my hair is stick straight, fine, and really "slippery," for lack of a better word, so headbands eventually slide off the back of my head (this is NOT a good look, trust me).

Here's a tip I learned from a friend in high school who did this to keep his kippah on securely - stitch in some velcro! Make sure to use the rougher "hook" side, not the softer "loop" side. The hooks grab the hair nicely and keep everything in place. Here's one of mine:



It's got a piece of velcro sewn in near each temple. Just make sure to have it around your neck before you brush your hair, then slide it back.

I will be switching to ponytail elastics!

I have slippery hair as well...I can save a few head bands hiding in a drawer because they would not stay on and I couldn't bear to part with them.

Thanks!!!   Grin
