Step 1. Measure a piece of bungee around your head. It should be snug, yet comfortable. Cut to size. Hold the flame from a lighter up to the cut ends to seal the fraying threads.
Since the you measured the headband, and now the ends are touching each other, it should be a perfect fit once the applique is added.
And that is all there is to it! You can wear your DIY flapper headband in many different ways. Curl your hair and then put the headband on, with the applique placed down past your hairline and onto your forehead. Then tuck strands of your hair up and around the headband for a romantic updo.
