  • beaded brow bands...

    Hello everyone! I had a question as I just started Jingle dancing (and am instantly hooked)...I see all these different hair decorations. But I was wondering about those beaded brow bands I'd say head bands but they aren't worn that way they're worn horizontally across the brow (I hope that you know what I mean). I've seen a buncha these out there and think the look so nice for the most part. But I was wondering if they have any significance (like only someone who was a princess can wear them or something) or is it just if ya liek the look you can wear one. Plus if anyone wants to clue me in on other head/hair apparell and possible why's things are done the way they are that would be awesome. I don't mind doing the right thing but wanna know why and knot just do it cause it's the "in thing" Thanks in advance!

    Dance on!:D

          Headbands

          If you make it, you can wear it :)
          At Least in my neck of the woods there isnt any significance to it.

          Have fun :)

              I beaded my little headband at Schemitzun 99' when everyone had the thin little headbands. I had a wicked pimple on my fore head and wanted to hide it. I was in Parsons Fashion Design so i copied the Jean Paul Gaultier models at the Milan fashion week. (Those fancy rich designers call them Perisian wedding caps, the girls wear in Europe to look theatrical for there weddings.)
              This is a crazy trend that took off. And it wouldn't be so bad but they made fun of me when I walked into the powwow wearing that thing. Ain'it Wallflower--
              Now look everyone is wearing them.....Yeah and if you make it you can wear it, in my book....:Chatter :Chatter :Chatter

                Are you calling me out??? J/K gurl, I'm into all the trends. Yes I'm a follower. Haven't made me a diagonal dress yet. And I haven't beaded me a lil cape. I wouldn't mind going thru your closet looking at your old digs. That lavender dress you had at Schemiz"95 was deadly. Nice floral work.:Thumbs

                            Also wondering where you are from. Up here (amoungst the Anishnawbe) a jingle dress dancer needs permission from an Anish jingler. That dancer(s) teaches the new dancer all she needs to know. So this person would be able to tell you about the accessories for your hair and other more important things...luv the idea of pimple coverage...unfortunatly my teen gal gets em on her chin...we could start a new chin strap craze but it may not catch on :)

                                Never made a headband before so I need to ask couple of questions.

                                The one wanting it wants beaded fringe coming from it........ anyone have pics...... I've seen some at powwows and I think I know what he's asking about but want to make sure.

                                Is the rosette in the center...

                                I've posted something about this before, but was wondering just how many people go with the vest. What have you people, in areas where the larger powwows are, observed? Are they as popular as they seem to be? I know the beaded vests are a new trend (as of last year) but have only seen pics of about...

                                Is that what they are called or is it something else. Well they are very nice looking. My daughter had one a few years ago that went across her forehead and now I want to make one that sits at the top of the head in her hair. Does anyone know how they stay in the hair? I've heard to put velcro on the...

                                Hello ladies,

                                I was asked why old trad leggings had a green beaded or painted band around the ankle part. I always thought it was just purely decorative as I have never been told any different.
                                However, just for double checking and for the sake of an interresting cultural discussion,...
