Heat them slowly on a cookie sheet until you can mold them. Stick it between 2 good unheated headbands and tie it with a piece of yarn to secure it till it cools and holds it's new shape!
Yep I was about to put the same thing!

I bought mine from Hairparts and I love them. They fit little girls and adults. I've made headbands for both. They are nice and sturdy, too.

I've been very happy with mine - maybe one that was a little funky but I'd carried it in my purse waiting for a chance to finish it & I figured I'd done it!!

But I just did a big ribbon order mid Dec. & already need more headbands! I'll just oder a gross the next time but I had just learned how to make the headbands - now I'm obsessed!!

Does anyone have some they want to part with? Like a dozen 1/2 inch & a dozen 3/4? After paying UB prices buying them elsewhere seems criminal!!

That's what I'm saying for UB's price, if I have to reshape some, that's what I'll do. I just placed and order and if they are not out of stock, I'm getting 4 sizes. I'd be happy to splits some off to you. I should be finding out very soon. LMK. Thanks.

Hairparts is similar in pricing to UB --- and the hairbands are always perfect. I've got a box of UB (approx 60+) that I'm going to throw out--my daughter uses them to play "horseshoes" with. It's just not worth my time to mess around with the UB ones. I love Julie but I'm seriously offended that anyone would mail me that kind of crap (for any price)--if anyone wants them, they're yours. They're pricey to ship from Canada to USA but if anyone here in canada wants to try their luck with them, they're yours
