The Bald and the Beautiful

I'm looking for some cute bows/headwraps for my little one.  She's five months old...and almost bald!  I want to get her some cute headbands, but the ones you buy in the stores leave marks around her head and I know that can't be comfortable.  I have been searching and have found many stores online.  I was thinking that there are a lot of my readers who have Etsy stores, and I would rather support someone who is making their things by hand than to buy from a large company.  I am really interested in the interchangeable infant headbands (or headwraps).  Shelby (my 6 year old) has lots of alligator clip style bows that would clip on those, so it would be a bit easier than trying to stock up on a lot of different kinds of bows.  There are so many to choose from, I am at a loss for where to begin.  Any Mom readers who can recommend?  Are there any dealers out there who would like to solicit my business?  I am also willing to do reviews in exchange for products?

I think this is the first time I've seen your youngest, Tish. She's GORGEOUS! Such a beautiful face.

Good luck finding headbands. Unfortunately, having two boys, I don't have a clue.

Well, I don't have a clue to begin with, but with two boys ... oh never mind. *grin*

My babies are having their own babies. Back then I would make a bow and stick it on with Karo syrup on their scalp. It would stick and warm water would take it off. I got tired of people telling me what a cute boy my girls were. Speaking of a cute boy, check out my grandson dressed liked cupid.

She is a cutie! I was a baldy as well. Of course back then those kinds of bows did not exist so for pictures sometimes my Mom would tape bows to my head so I would look like a girl!!! lol

Good luck!

She is such a sweetie, I love this picture! I make the hairclips, if you look at my Etsy site linked from my blog you'll see those, I can make headbands wihtout elastic if you give me a head measurement or maybe I can come up with some design with velcro or something so it's a bit adjustable. The store ones being elastic do leave marks so the velcro wouldn't at least...let me know what you think, I could try a sample one then do a few colors for you if you want and if we come up with some ingenious maybe we can start promoting! :)

I have been looking at sites all day and these things crack me up - the bows are almost bigger than the head. http://www.pinkbowtique.com/index.php?cPath=89_126
