Rachel: Why I Started Redwood Ranches...
In the fall of 2008 my beautiful little girl Kelsie was born. Some very kind friends and family threw me baby showers where I was showered with lots of adorable little outfits. When Kelsie was born she had NO hair, so I bought some little headbands at the store to match her adorable little outfits. Sadly, the store-bought headbands were tight and left indentations in her soft head. It made me sad! Then a good friend made Kelsie a headband with soft nylon and I fell in love...
Soon I was making infant headbands to match every outfit. :) Kelsie was rarely seen without a big bow on her head. The thing I loved most was that the soft nylon was so stretchable. She no longer wears the infant headbands (she is now 2 1/2), but they stretch enough that if she wanted to she could.
When Kelsie was about 4 months I fell in love with big flowers and crocheted headbands. I loved that they were interchangeable. At first she just had purple and white crocheted headbands, but all of her flowers worked interchangeably with the headbands.
After about 18 months Kelsie's hair started growing like CRAZY! Soon she had this dark blonde curly hair that I didn't know how to control. Then I started making the small-medium flowers, and they worked perfectly! The non-slip rubber material I attached to each clip held her hair fine hair tightly. I love how some little clip made her crazy, unmanageable hair look super cute. She is now also moving on to regular headbands. I had fun making her a custom fancy headband to match her Easter dress which she also was able to wear to her Uncle's wedding.
