Default Headbands?

Ok, this feels like a silly question but I'm hoping maybe someone here has some suggestions.

I'm currently contemplating growing out my bangs. Maybe. If I can get past the annoying inbetween phase. But, to do that I need some decent headbands and it seems like all the ones I buy stretch out really fast while wearing them.

So, anyone have any brands or kinds that look decent but don't stretch out super fast? Maybe that's just not the way headbands are and I'm looking way to much into it though, that's a possibility.

I've never had the plastic/hard kind stretch out. I'm a huge fan of the cutesy ones with bows and flowers on them

I honestly just buy the cheep ones in the pharmacy - then I again I only wear them to put on make-up or something.

I usually put my bangs back with bobby pins if they are getting too long/I'm letting them grow out.

I like the big thick ones that can be opened up into kerchief like things as well....or today I am just wearing a thin braided leather one that is holding well.

My favorite for growing out bangs though it to french braid them back to the side (or twist if you prefer) as headbands often annoy me[/LIST]

The plastic ones give me such a headache, I think where they hit just hurts too much for me. Slightly a baby

Gypsy, I work at a pharmacy and for the past six years that's where I've gotten all mine but they are the reason I'm making this thread They all stretch out!

I actually do that a lot, but I don't want to be stuck with just that option everyday and I want something for around the house because if they start getting annoying I'm going to cave and cut them again. Though, to be honest I don't mind bangs and might just use headbands as a option for the days I want them GONE NOW.

I'm going to look into the bigger ones though! They might still stretch out but I doubt it would be as bad/noticeable

Same here! Twist them and then pin them back with a bobby pin, use two and make an X with the bobby pins. It's super cute when they're twisted back too.

I have fabric ones that I buy, those big wide ones that are maybe an inch and a half thick. Those are the ones I use at night when I'm washing my face or when I put on makeup in the morning. I also have some thinner Goody elastic "athletic" ones that I use at the gym, but those don't actually stay put. I have to put them on, then use bobby pins to make them stay. Not as advertised. >=<
Otherwise I have some cute cheap plastic or fabric-covered ones that I bought either at the dollar spot at Target or Forever 21. If you put them on a bucket or something round, you can kind of stretch them out!

Something like this is what I prefer. They can be fairly narrow if you want or can open to full coverage (though mine are more hippy type fabrics,tie dye, batik, etc lol)

I have a friend who makes fabric ones and sells them in her Etsy shop. She uses her daughter as her model, but I have seen pictures of her wearing them as well. I know she makes them to be worn by women as well as girls.

I have several I like from Busy Bee Headbands (on fb and online: http://www.busybeeheadbands.com/). So far I've not gotten headaches, had them slip, or have issues with stretching and they have a ton of ribbon options.

I'll check her out! I see she has adjustable ones, that might be perfect for what I'm looking for! Thanks!
