Flat hair bands

I have used many types of hairbands over the years, including Blax and Invisibobbles. But my favourites have always been flat hairbands, which are surprisingly hard to find. My last stash came from our local supermarket, and Body Shop’s small advent calendars contained three small ones last year. Since then though, supply seems to have dried up. I finally found some today at a local accessory chain, Glitter, and stocked up.

I like them because they don’t dig into your head when you rest it against a pillow or cushion, they don’t pull at your hair, and they are compact.

    There’s also a Berkeley, CA (USA) woman based hair band creator that hand dyes theirs. Not affiliated, just a happy customer when I had long enough hair:
