How To Make a Headband, Version 3: Easy Ribbon Headband Ribbon headbands secured to elastic ponytail holders. I've seen many headbands lately which use a loop of cord elastic that is cinched at the center, usually by a metal crimp, to form a figure eight (like Anthropologie's Oxford headband, Anthropologie's Fairytale Theater headband, Banana Republic's double ribbon headband, and Santi's metallic headband).
