A Review and Giveaway: Headbands Made by Heather B

I recently found myself in a hairstyling slump. Every day before sending my daughters to school I would quickly put their hair in a plain-old ponytail and send them out the door. Thanks to Heather B's handmade crocheted items I found a great new accessory for hairstyling!

Photobucket This hair accessory is a handmade three strand headband with a flower attached. I love the versatility of this hair item! First, you can tie the headband as tight or loose as you want which is great for my three daughters and their differing head sizes. Second, this delicate flower really differentiates between a "plain" ponytail and a ponytail with flare! Now when we're in a rush I can tie this cute headband on, with or without a ponytail, and it adds a unique flair to the day's hairstyle.

One of the qualities I really liked was that the flower can slide along the strands for positioning. We had a great time trying all sorts of hairstyles from a simple headband to crown French braids and a “headband” braid with the strands included in the braid. My one alteration to the headband was that since my kids are young they kept touching the flower and moving it around. To keep it in position I used a small clip or bobby-pin under the flower.
 
This headband is a beautiful handmade addition to our hairstyling accessories. Each piece comes in the color of your choice from a selection of beautiful merino blend yarn listed HERE. Heather B's Etsy shop also offers many other products including little maryjane shoes for babies and this little cap for boys. Isn't it adorable? This cap almost makes me want to move from my tropical island to a cooler climate. Key word being "almost!"
