Default Ok, I gotta know...

why alot of HipGirls prefer their foe headbands to be shiny side up? I have always used the matte side up, I guess I just like the matte side better and I know I'm in the minority. So, I would love to hear any ladies share the reasons they prefer one side over another. Maybe I need to be convinced to switch over to the shiny side?

Thanks in advance!

I just thought that was the way it was supposed to be done.

Never really thought about it! I found a tut that said shiny side up and just went with it.

Shinny side up for me

I guess it is probably personal preference.

LOL!! Guess I always figured that was the right side. The other side just kinda hit me like a shirt inside out.

I prefer the matte side and love it when I am doing a vintage style design but I have found the mostly everyone else likes the shiny so I make sure to do both.

I may be crazy but the shiny side seems slicker (is that a word?) So if that is true wouldn't the hb be more likely to slide and slip on the child's head if the shiny side is down?

Always wondered the same thing. I prefer the look of matte too but always do shiny b/c everyone else does. I thought it was rule or something.
