What's the Deal with DBP (Double Brushed Poly)?

Let's start with DBP, shall we? It's also our signature fabric. This fabric is like a soft, cozy hug for your hair. It's so comfortable, you'll forget you're even wearing it! Plus, it comes in a variety of vibrant colors and patterns. As influencers say it's truly "butter soft" Trust us, once you try DBP, you'll never want to go back!

Why Ribbed Knit is the Perfect Fit

Looking for something a bit more textured? Ribbed knit is the answer. This fabric adds a touch of sophistication to your hair accessory game. It's like the little black dress of fabrics – timeless and always in style. So, why settle for ordinary when you can have extraordinary with ribbed knit? It's usually my go-to for fall in one of my solid colors- sage, copper or mustard. 

Satin: The Epitome of Elegance

If you're all about luxury and glamour, satin is the fabric for you. It exudes elegance and sophistication, making you feel like a true queen. Whether you're attending a fancy event or just want to elevate your everyday look, satin hair accessories are the way to go. Satin doesn't come with enough stretch for our traditional twist band, so we occasionally offer it in scrunchies.

Suede: Embrace Your Inner Boho

Are you a free spirit with a love for all things bohemian? Then suede is your fabric soulmate. It adds a touch of earthy charm to your hair accessories, giving you that effortlessly chic look. Whether you're rocking a messy bun or a braided crown, suede will take your hairstyle to the next level. Suede us the only fabric we currently offer with an elastic band in the back. 

Velvet: Luxurious and Lush

Velvet is the epitome of luxury. Its soft and plush texture will make you feel like royalty. With velvet hair accessories, you'll add a touch of opulence to any outfit. Whether you're going for a romantic date night or just want to feel fabulous, velvet is the way to go. Be warned: If you, like me wear scrunchies more as bracelets then in your hair, you'll likely be subconsciously touching it all day!

Comfort is key, right? That's where stretch eyelet comes in. This fabric is not only adorable but also super comfortable to wear. It's perfect for those days when you want to look  feminine without sacrificing comfort. It gives.. garden party vibes.
