Default Unhappy with United Beads Headbands

I purchased some headbands from United Beads a couple of months ago. I am pretty disappointed with them. I've had to throw out quite a few of them because they were funky.
I like the price, but it's not worth it when having to throw some out.

Is there a place that has better quality ones? I know hairparts has them, are they the best? Is there another place to buy them that are really good quality?

I got some from UB and some from Hair Parts.

I like the Hair Parts ones better, but I didnt have any throw aways with UB, maybe you just got a bad bunch?

Hair Parts price is great too. I will be buying from there at the end month, alligator clips and more headbands

I have been using the UB heabands for probably almost 2 years now. I use the 3/4 and I do sometimes have some that are funky. I would just throw them out before and then one day I ran out so I just stretched it out and reshaped it and it was as good as the rest. I didn't think much of throwing them out before since they are so cheap. I buy a gross at a time of the 3/4 and they end up being .10. You should try the reshape first.

Oh! Don't throw them out! $$$$

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!

Ohhh! Good idea on heating them to reshape!!

I guess for the most part I'm ok with them. I was just disappointed when there was a whole package that was shaped funny and even some that were uneven. But, heating them and reshaping them would solve that.

I do like the ribbon I purchased from there!

Thanks, I'm about to order headbands from UB. I hope I don't have to do this, but now I know how to fix any weird ones I get.

I second reshaping them! I was unhappy with some of the ones that I received from UB too, but they work great once you get them shaped properly.
