This large width headband is made from local walnut and maple hardwoods, which are carefully joined together before they are steambent into their new form. The cherry blossom tattoo is done by pyrography, "writing with fire." Each hardwood band is steambent with water only and sanded smooth. An ecofriendly finish is applied to seal the wood.

Besides being handcrafted from hardwood, these headbands differ from traditional bands in another way. The difference is in what I call the headband's "memory." Plastic and wire bands have an unyielding "memory" of their original shape, and when worn, they are always trying to return to it. For some, this can cause the band to pinch.

Bentwood Bands, however, REMEMBER YOU! As you wear the headband, it relaxes ever-so-slightly to adjust itself to your individual contour. You may even forget you have one on! And you can also adjust the headband manually: if the band should seem too loose, you can squeeze it to tighten the fit, or stretch it to loosen the fit. And after wearing, simply give the band a squeeze to return it to its original shape. And don't worry about breaking the band - they are incredibly flexible! (Photos coming soon)

Flexible. Natural. Beautiful.

One size fits most - approximately 1 inch (2.6 cm) wide.

Variation in wood grain ensures no two bands are alike, therefore yours will slightly differ from the one shown above.

Headband can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth, but as with all wooden accessories, it should not be over-exposed to water or put into wet hair.
