These headbands are 1/2" wide and made from "unbreakable" blanks. They are extremely hard to snap unless left in extreme temperature changes (like the car). They are woven with high quality ribbon and the ends are sealed to prevent fraying. I try hard to make sure there are no "scratchy" parts at the ends that can irritate behind the ears.
Any alligator clips/bows can be worn attached to my headbands. You simply slip the bottom of the slip under the center ribbon of the headband in the position you want it to be.
These headbands are so comfortable and so versatile.
