Those headbands look really cool. I love them!! This summer my hubby and I decided to go ahead and cut our oldest daughter's hair, she is 6, short. Well she wanted it "dora the explorer" short so we went ahead and did it. I now have the hardest time doing her hair. It is super straight and thin and pony o's don't seem to hold all that well at her soccer games. I am definetly going to try this tonight and see if I can do them. Where can I purchase the elastic?? Does it come in packages like the ric rac??? Thanks for all the pics and inspriration!!
