    im not a person who can bead, but the one that i made for my daughter had two small clip barettes at each end with two small strips of velco in the middle, so it doesnt hurt her hair when she takes it off. i didnt put any edging on the end of the headband, but sewed rhinestones all around so you cant tell there no edging on it.

    I figure you could do any kind of edgework you'd like...some people don't like edgebeads onthe across-the-forehead-type of headband cuz it presses into your skin and leaves a funny looking aftermark...but because these stay in the hair that wouldn't matter

    so I say HAVE SUM FUN wit it!

    I've not made one but I'm going to guess that they are edged with a one bead variation of edge beading... kinda like laying a row of brick stitch.

    Headband Edges?

    How do you finish the edges of these headbands? I haven't seen one up close. What type of edge beading do you use?

    I'm glad you asked this question because I was wondering the same thing and was looking for the answer. I'll give the velcro a try and see what happens.

    Dang, when I saw this thread, I thought it was about outrageous headbands. Like too tall, too much bling, bling, etc.

    You could use either the velcro or the barrette like a clip on that won't show..

    And they make clear elastic in different widths, like the kind you would use in sewing.

    I would use velcro and it hurts less if you take your braides out before you take the hair piece out.

    I bet I know what that clear rubberband was.. they make it for beading..it's called something that sounds like flexolong.. ... it's basically a clear elastic thong on a spool like softflex wire. Pretty cheap too.

    I made one for my niece she's a shawl dancer and I put velcro on it and even though she hates it and says it hurts it stays in!

    Side Stitch

    I am guessing you are describing the beaded streamers traditionally worn by the women of the Hochunk, Potawatomi, Menominee, Mesquakie and neighboring groups.
