So the little thing that I learned today was about the magic of wired ribbon. I have always liked simple styles with ribbon , they are so Victorian casual , la Room with a View or something.
Anyhow, my hair is way , way too slippery for that jazz but I got all brave and tried some wired ribbon today and it worked like a charm , I made a headband and it stayed in place and i could manipulate the bow so that it didn't look cheesy for a lady of my ahem advanced age.
Just thought I would share.

That is an excellent idea! Got any pictures of it in action?

I'll try to put some up tomorrow , I got a bunch of different stuff at the cheapo close out fabric store because i can't afford pricy stuff right now .
I also got some kind of decorative elastic and made hair ties , and bra strap type elastic to do headband curls with.
It only cost a few euros to get lots of hair stuff , as my son says "Whiiippppiiiieeeeee" .
