I looked at it, and if you are handy with your sewing machine, you could TOTALLY make these. It is basically whatever ribbon you like, backed with velvet ribbon. Then about 3-4 inches of regular black elastic. It is the best, "non-slip" hairband I have found so far, but still not 100% non-slip for my situation.
    Thanks for your review! I wonder if these are the same concept? http://www.etsy.com/listing/55232544...and-sparkle-up

    The esty ones look very similar.

    Yes, they are pricey, but they work far, far better than anything I or my daughter have ever used. They aren't perfect, but our hair is telfon-like, no joke.

    I have never in her 8 years had any type of headband last for longer than 5 minutes in her hair, I've tried EVERY type imaginable (elastic, rubbery elastic, plastic with teeth, wide plastic with teeth, rubbery and on and on).

    She's worn a sweatyband for the past three days - including soccer. For us, the only way they could stay more, is if you used glue.

    I'm probably going to make a few of my own.

    The sweaty band has been AWESOME!!! It doesn't slip or fall off!
    This thing is great!!!!
    Did you buy a bandit for your DD? (the smaller sized ones). My DD needs something to keep her hair off her face while it grows out. I attempt a pony tail for soccer and dance but her hair is not quite long enough and all the hairs framing her face falls out.

    No, I ordered the regular size.

    Those look nice. I really need something to keep the wispies away. They seriously get in the way of my vision when it's windy. I'd have to use it while my hair was in a ponytail b/c there's no way *any* headband would keep stay on my hair by itself.

    So, is it the concensus that the thin ones hold hair better/stay in better?

    Yes, I'd like to know too. The closest B&M store that carries them is an hour away.

    I haven't seen them in a store, but there was a Sweaty Bands booth at an event I attended. I'm not in the same state as they are made in, so I assume the gals at the booth carry them in their local store?? Not sure.

    They were the same price as online.
