These Side Bow Headbands are made from either 100% cotton. The headband itself measures just over 2" wide at the top and each end tapers down to 3/4" wide. A bow is tied to the side of the headband and is knotted roughly 2.5" from center top. The headband inside, which is made from a pliable and soft plastic, measure 14.5" end to end. It's tight enough for a good grip but loose enough to avoid headaches. Great for a bad hair day or to spruce up any hairdo.
