Default head sizes?

yeah, i need head sizes. lol

My sister asked me to make her some headbands so i made her a few ribbon headbands. I had never made them before & was pretty happy with the way they turned out. But, now i want to make more...for all ages (my sister is 20 so i just used my head as a 'template' haha) but i'm not sure what sizes to use. My DD is 4 in november so she is the only head for that age i have to measure.
What sizes do you go by for your headbands? TIA!

p.s. i'm already aware the picture is horrid..it was a quick snap for my sister...then i never got to take any other photos of it before i handed it off to her. anyways, the white part is the only elastic on it.. the rest is just ribbon.

Do a search for "headband sizes" and I am sure you will find what you need. I know there have been many posts and listings with this info.

Thanks, i've searched before but could only find measurements for elastic headbands.. not ribbon & elastic measurements. I found a few sizes so i will just try to average it out. haha

Would the same sizes work for a headband that is part grosgrain ribbon and part elastic?

You should think about making them adjustable.

You can use bra sliders.. if you search for adjustable headbands you can find pics and a tutorial...

On the sizing I'd think the sizing could be the same... but you may have to make them a little smaller since you only have a little bit of give whereas the elastic bands the whole thing gives..

here are the different sizes i found:

1.) Toddler: 17.5"

Child: 18.5"

Tween: 19.5"

Teen: 20"

Adult: 21"



2.) Newborn - 13 1/4"

3-6 Months - 14 1/2"

6-12 Months - 16"

12 Months-Teen - 17 1/2"

Adult - 18"

3.) 4-12 months - 15"

12 months - 3 years - 17"

3 years - adult - 17.5"


I have made a toggle headband.. i've searched for that as well and found that people use around 26" - 30" of ribbon for those. I'm not so worried about those.. I made a few of the ribbon & elastic headbands for my sister, but just needed some measurements for smaller heads haha
