Headbands and hair ties are in…everyone is wearing them and LOVING them. They are an athlete’s, dancer and cheerleaders best friend and little girls look adorable in them too! These fabulous hair accessories work perfect for everyone! The Ribbon Retreat has the best selection of Fold Over Elastic around that these great hair accessories are made from and today, Cherie is going to show us the cheapest and easiest way to get yourself some of these wonderful headbands and hair ties in solid, shimmery, and print Fold Over Elastic. Enjoy!
Fold Over Elastic (FOE) is so awesome! The name can be confusing as it actually isn’t folded. It is just soft elastic that is great for headbands and hair ties. You may have seen this elastic on babies, but girls and ladies of all ages can use it in some way.
Have you seen these hair ties around? I saw a package of 4 at JCPenny’s for $4.00! Please don’t pay that much for these beauties! At The Ribbon Retreat we have SO many colors and prints of FOE just waiting to be hair ties! With our price on solid color FOE you could make 9 hair ties for $1.00! That’s $0.11 each! Printed hair ties would be around $0.14 each. Now that’s a good deal!!
Slide the knot close to the end until it won’t go anymore. That is all there is to it! The elastic doesn’t fray so you don’t even have to worry about sealing the ends!
These hair ties are so popular because they don’t crease your hair, they don’t get tangled, and they don’t break! They can hold the thinnest or thickest of hair!
For headbands you can tie them just like the hair ties or you can glue them. I prefer glue. I measured my daughters head and made her headbands custom fit to her head. Her headbands were 15″ total length, she’s 4 but very petite. A guide to go by if you don’t have anyone to measure is:
- 12-14″ Baby
- 15 -17″ Youth
- 18-20″ Adult
