Yesterday, I received a question from Genevieve.
I have a question. Is there a way to make the ribbon stay put?
Mine just slides right off the back of my head!
Here are some possible solutions.
- Have the ribbon sit more forward on your head.
- Use grosgrain or single-faced satin instead of double-faced satin.
- Try tying the knot tighter, but not so tight that the ribbon shifts to a smaller part of your head.
- My mom’s suggestion: spray the back of the ribbon with hair spray to make it sticky.
If all else fails, use velvet ribbon face down for extra grip.
If you’re super desperate, use a bobby pin or two behind your ears to hold the ribbon in place.
Do you ladies have any other ideas for helping a ribbon stay up?
