I was wondering if anyone knew where I can find a special band, to put my hair up. Say as if I'm putting it in a ponytail, but instead, pile it on my head, and attach a headband so it stays in place on top of my head, then put a beanie over it so I don't have to worry about it and it can grow longer. thanks.

How about a hair scrunchie?


Weather Forcast - With high humidity in the air, expect general hair frizziness to continue :-/
Current Length: 30 inches or so from the front

Would a scrunchie enable me to do what I just said:pile hair on head and leave it up that way so I can put beanie on and hair won't fall down so I don't have to worry about it? Otherwise, do you know of a head/hair band that would best accomplish this? Anyone? Thanks.

Okay, so let me see if I understand this... dude20 asks a question, Tyranna answers it, and then dude20 asks if that's the answer.

Do I read between the lines that you want something other than a scrunchie?  If that's the case, I don't have answer for you.

Wearing your hair piled on your head will get you lots of attention (maybe, most of it unpleasant), regardless of whether it's held in place with a scrunchie or anything else.

I'm certainly not passing judgment on the style choice.  Just be prepared for lots of grief from others, if that's the look you choose.

If you just want to pile it on your head and put a beanie on it, you probably
don't need any fastener at all. The beanie itself should keep the hair from
moving, provided it's not a really loose beanie.

But I agree with Dave that if your hair has any sort of bulk to it, it might
garner you some strange looks to wear it like that.

I manage to keep all my hair uo under a flat cap with no grips etc.

Just hoke hair in a pony tail and twist it so the whole length looks like a rope, pop cap/beanie over it and hey presto!


As long as you keept it tight it should look fairly inconspicuous.hope that helps

I just re-read the subject from the LH board listing and that it was started by "dude20" and I thought, "hmm... Special hair band.... you mean Ratt?  Or maybe Poison?  or..."  

Okay, I know that wasn't helpful, but I just had to say it...

You could probably google for more info and pics from the 80s.
