I'm not sure if the hair pieces are supposed to be separated by color, but mine is dark brown
Braided Headband-Dark Brown #F5451 $12
I got this for my #30, and it matches her hair (black-brown) very well. This is a very cute piece, but I had a bit of trouble getting it on. The "elastic back" is cloth covered and not very stretchy, so the hairband is very tight. I also got it on somewhat crooked and it was difficult to turn while on her head-that thing is not going anywhere! Now that I have it on, I am not worried about it falling off or losing it
Grade= A- I would recomend to anyone who has the patience to get it on, but might not be good for little girls that like to change hairstyles several times a week.
I got the Braided Headband - Caramel Item# F5460 for my McKenna. The good news is that the color is almost a perfect match.
The bad news is (as lindsayj said above): it is very, very difficult to get on. I am an adult and I got so frustrated and so annoyed that my DH took over and tried to do it (he couldn't get it on either - he didn't want to force it). I finally got it on with a ton of patience, a bit of extra muscle and lots of maneuvering. I can't imagine a little girl being able to do it successfully - I think the experience would end in frustrated tears.
For looks alone I'd give it an A, for "functionality" I'd give it a C-
I'm glad I'm not the only one. I bought the dark brown since I have more dolls with that color hair than any other. Also, the red wouldn't match either of my redheads so dark brown won.
I tried it on Chrissa and I was afraid I was going to tear her wig off when I was trying to get it on her. It was quite a struggle. It looks cute but, as tight as it is, I'm afraid to leave it on her for very long since it will probably leave a significant dent.
If I get really ambitious, I may snip off most of the cloth part and replace it with some more forgiving elastic or hair bands. It's WAAAAAAY too tight.
I was debating between Caramel and Brown as a match for Marie-Grace's hair color, but after reading another thread (which I can't seem to find again), I settled on the Braided Headband -Brown. It matches MG's hair perfectly! Mine was also very tight and somewhat difficult to put on. I pulled it all the way over her head, smoothed back her hair, and then pulled it into place. It's hard to imagine how well a kid would be able to do this. I plan on keeping the headband on, so I'm not sure if it's something that might get looser / easier to use with time. Overall, I'm very happy with mine - for something I plan to have on permanently, I don't mind how tight it is - so I give it an A- (detracting points for difficulty in getting on).
