The Accessory Aisle: Headbands
My girls, especially Firefly, love to wear headbands. I may be stubborn as a mule, but I really hate headbands! I go through the trouble to get their hair all smooth and silky and then I carefully arrange the headband in their heads and away we go. Moments later, the headband is out, being played with or repositioned, and she looks like her hair was never combed today. I want the girls to wear and enjoy the lovely accessories I take the time to create for them, but I won't sacrifice them having ratty looking hair for that. I am working on some 'dos that will be headband AND mom friendly. I'll get back with those as soon as I can. In the meantime, here are some of the headbands I've been working on.
These are just the plain grosgrain-wrapped headbands with interchangeable loops.
And here are some with the bows permanently attached. They are so delicate and sweet and look great in the girls' hair. I just need them to stay in like the hairbows do! Maybe I'll have to weave them in place...hmm? -The Homestylemom
I am priviledged to be a helpmeet of 15 years to my best friend and full time mother of 5 terrific blessings...four of which are girls. Am I really 35+? Life is great. My fortunes include an amazing husband, four fabulous daughters and one wonderful son. I am a homeschool teacher and owner of a home-based business. I started The Homestylemom, a custom sewing/embroidery boutique, in 2006 and have since changed the name to Homespun HoneyBee. My name (Melissa) means "honey bee" in Greek. I am usually styling someones hair, always on a diet, passionate about sewing/embroidery, love to read, appreciate a good dose of inspirational music, and live for family vacations. I am thankful for nap times, washing machines, and shapeware. I love 'hiking dates' with my family, summers at the lake, amusement parks and Amish country! "Home" is my favorite place on earth.
