I know what you’re thinking, “Another headband?” YES. Maybe it’s because I’m the only one holding down the female fort in my home and I need a girly outlet. I designed this velvet baby headband to match the bow scrunchies mamas and sisters can wear.

The velvet baby headband is created in one size to fit most. Due to the elastic it stretches really well. However, if you want bigger or smaller adjust the length of the headband and the elastic.
