Two ingredients + one step = edgy and awesome headband. Here's what you need (yep, that's it): Photo used with permission of Stars for Streetlights A 24" (61 cm) zipper should work for most heads, and they come in lots of colors.

Eek! 19 agree Reply I am sitting here feeling sympathy pains imagining that curly hair getting caught in the zipper teeth – especially if someone thinks they are being amusing by zipping up your headband for you! Maybe some invisible stitches to stop the zipper piecevfrom moving might help some of my fears! 3 agree Reply For a more permanent, I think I would sew a piece of elastic or something and attach the two back edges. Bobby pins tend to slip out place for me, but I LOVE this look and love headbands 3 agree Reply I agree! Super cute idea, but I think I would spend the entire day fiddling with it if it was just bobby-pinned on. 0 agree Reply Looks cute. Knowing me and how things get caught in my hair, I would sew a backing on it first to preserve the open zipper look but protect my hair. 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
