How to I Know What Size Headband to Order?
I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say "I can't wear headbands, they slide right off my head". Or, "I'd love to be able to wear headbands, but my head is just not shaped right." Or, so commonly, "I'd sure like to use a headband to keep my hair out of my eyes but headbands give me headaches!"
I love when I have the opportunity to let these people try on a Specifically Random headband. So often, slipping and binding are because the headbands are simply too tight. If you have a headband that constantly slips off the back of your head, it's probably not too big (which is what many think), but too small!
The beauty of Specifically Random headbands is that they are available in four sizes, from small to x-large. That means, whether your head is 18" around or 26" around, I have a headband for you. No more one-size-fits-all!
So - how do you determine which size will fit your head? Simply measure around your head where you would normally wear a headband -- from the top of your head to the back of your head where the hairline meets the neck. If you don't have a tape measure handy, use a string and measure it against a ruler. Then, use the chart below to determine your headband size.
Also, keep in mind that you can shop with confidence! I personally hand-make each headband and stand behind both its quality and fit. If, for any reason, your headband isn't what you hoped it would be, simply send it back for a refund or exchange (please see shop policies for my full return policy).
"First, I was impressed with how quickly my purchase arrived! Second, the quality is excellent. Even stitching, professionally finished - very high quality product. Third and most important - these fit my head! I have a large head for a woman, and have not had luck finding a headwrap that fits without looking like it's trying to squeeze my brains out of my head. I've tried other "large" headwraps where it turns out that 22" is the MAXIMUM stretch. Yours is the first shop I've seen with this awesome variety of measurements. Thank you, on behalf of the big headed everywhere! :) I will most definitely be ordering more, and soon."
"Love this headband and the size was perfect! It's the only one I've ever had that stays put in the back. Usually they ride up on me, but not this one. My son and I are fighting over it!"
"Thanks, Kelly! I consider myself a bit of an expert on wearing headwraps -- my three teenage daughters can attest to that, we KNOW headwraps. These are the first I've ever bought that have size options and what a difference it makes! I wore this red/blue to work last night and never once did it slip or require any tugging or pinning. I love it!"
