Default Headbands: metal or plastic?

I need some headbands for older girls for rosettes and have been using only metal headbands and lining them with ribbon. But they are not cheap. Does anyone use both and have an opinion on them? I'd like to try the plastic ones but don't wanna buy any until I get some feedback on them. I guess I just figure plastic is cheap and might break? My rosettes are not cheap and I don't want my customers to feel my product is "cheap" or low quality because of it. Thanks.

I think plastic is okay esp for the older girls they will likely take care of things better then a smaller girl JMO

How do you line the plastic ones? Ribbon or fabric?

I have only used thin metal headbands and they have been fine. I wrap mine.

I have a few plastic ones here to use (on something) and I think they are just as good. I think the plastic ones are more comfy.

I prefer the plastic ones, as they are the ones I personally prefer to wear. The metal ones seem to hurt my head but the plastic ones can be shaped easily without breaking.

I just wrap them in ribbon, if done well and finished nicely on the ends I don't think they look cheap..
