Headband Challenge

So here's my confession... I have a headband phobia. There is a good reason for this though...I have a flat head. That's right, the back of my head is almost completely flat. So you can just picture many different styles of headbands shooting right off my head.  But I love the way they look, so I am attempting to overcome my phobia.
And once I have acquired a vast collection of headbands that I sport regularly I will have Ashley to thank for it.

So here goes nothin...

This is my Gussy Sews headband. I love this one because it never gives me a headache. Seriously comfortable!

This one I bought at Diane's swim shop. It's great for the beach and those days when your hair is not completely  clean, just sayin. I may have to teach one of these kids to use my camera so I can avoid the extreme closeups. Yikes!

This one is from Love Stitched and I love it because it stays put! In other words...it doesn't shoot off the back of my head.

That's right...Baby C participated in the headband challenge too and yes, she's much more confident than I am. This is from Rockstar Babies Boutique. Check them out on FaceBook.

Here is the good news. I now LOVE headbands. They can really fix a bad hair day. Or a dirty hair day or you know, whatever.
Thanks for the challenge Ashley! Head over to Little Miss Momma and check out all the other headband fabulousness.

Oh Oh I LOOOVE headbands! I've loved the "hippie headband" for YEARS but I just recently (literally...only a few months!) started to just DO it even if people thought I looked silly (and some people do!) but what's life if your not doing/being/wearing what you love? ;0) You look gorgeous in them my dear, simply gorgeous.

I adore headbands on others but just can't pull them off on myself. Headbands and Hats are a no go for me. My daughter on the other hand wears them ALL the time. I love your red headband, it's super chic :)

Jessica said...

I just may consider one of the Love Stitched headbands. Thanks for the inspiration!

gratefulmama said...

Very cute! I discovered that I too have a flat head after trying to wear a headband and the darn thing kept shooting off too!

Ashley said...

you look so cute!! i'm sure head is not THAT flat. I think mine is odd shaped...anytime i wear a real headband that isn't elastic... i have so much space between my head and the band...like i have a peanut head or something.

You are SO CUTE! I've been getting into headbands, too. My daughters have always worn something on their hair whether it's a headband or a flowers, so I thought: " Why not join them?"

Love them all! You are so cute. Flat head! Haha. I have a big forehead, so my headbands have to start too far back and then FLING off of my head, too.

i actually have the same problems with headband. the hard clip on type that sit behind the ears are fine...but those smooth slippery yoga style bands...bad news bears...lol

Meredith said...

I bought some super simple ones last weekend....but getting them placed in just the right spot for me is tricky!

Amie {Kitty Cats and Airplanes} said...

They look great! I'll have to check out those shops. You are so beautiful, and so is Little Miss!

Krista said...

I must check them out! I have a flat head too and can never find one that fits without hurting my head.

Tamara Chewning said...

So I realize this post is old, but I'm curious, have you found any headbands that are great to workout in? I have the same problem with the flat head and it's SO annoying. I want something to keep all the little wispy hairs out of my face that isn't going to take someone out the instant I try it on my head... :\ Help!
