I've been trying to find a specific hair accessory (I don't think I've ever use that phrase before!).
It's a headband but it's also like a comb. It's like a round comb with all the fingers pointing into the centre... and it's stretchy like an accordion... and you wear it like a headband... and it's great for keeping your hair off your face when you're working out.
They were a bit of a fad in the early nineties (I think?) around the same time as the 'banana comb' trend. Actually, what I'm trying to find is sort of like a banana comb...
... but instead of looking like a big vagina is biting the back of your head, it's position on your head is like a headband and it's stretchy, not ridged like a banana comb.
Am I making any sense? I can't seem to describe it, so I've not had any luck finding a pic of one online or what it's actually called to find someone who might sell them. I've looked everywhere locally and have come up empty-handed.
The last time I saw them was in the Co-op where I lived in England. I bought oodles of them then but they've all gone to 'stretchy, comby hairband thingy' heaven. And like the dork that I am, I forgot to look in a Co-op for more when I was in Scotland.
Does anyone have a clue about what I'm looking for? If anyone can find me a stash of these things I will reward generously!
