As I mentioned in a previous post, I won several items in the TopVintage summer giveaway, among them two accessories. One of the accessories I won was this super cute hairband from Be Bop a Hairbands.
One side features a green/white gingham design, while the other side is pink with several different fruits on it (watermelons, pears, lemons, oranges, and grapes). It’s really summery, and I loved wearing it to accessorize updos in the hot weather. The fruity side will be less suitable now that summer is slowly fading away, but I will manage to get some wear out of the hairband’s gingham side. I’m not usually a fan of green, but it will help to brighten up black outfits.
The material of the hairband is 100% cotton and very thick to protect the wire inside. I am a bit unsure about washing it what with the metal wire inside possibly getting rusty, but when the time comes I will probably simply wash it by hand with cold water to avoid any such problems. If anyone has any experience on that or tips please leave a comment below.
Be Bop a Hairbands are handmade in England by the owner Niki Murphy herself. That means no slave labor, yay for that. They are wired, double-sided, and 50s inspired with some really lovely designs for children and adults. She also makes turbans, neck scarves, and clothes.
I’ve always had problems getting bandanas to stay in position. It’s much easier with the wire running through this hairband as you can simply twist the ends around each other instead of having to tie a knot or bow.
