When I first created the House of Koopslie every wear bamboo headband, it was a bit out of desperation, and kind of an accident. You can read all about how our headbands started here.
I didn’t make the headband with the intention of being multi-wear; a question from a customer here in Edmonton, AB, Canada started that spark. I received an email asking if the headbands can be used for an up-do. I had never attempted it before, so decided to give it a try. It worked beautifully and inspired us to see what else can we do with our new headband. So, we started playing around with the headband, coming up with different ways to wear it and that’s how the Guide to Looking Epic was born. (If you don’t yet have a copy of the guide, sign up for our newsletter and we will send you one right away.)
As the eco-friendly headbands started selling, we also really listened to what our customers were saying. I often heard women say that they cannot pull off wearing a headband, so we knew we needed to do more. We created How to Wear Headbands videos, added the Headband Style Guide to our packaging and a bold statement was born: Yes you can rock a headband! Let us show you how.
We’ve used this statement first in our booth and it drew so much attention that I decided to add it to our packaging. I love seeing a woman’s face when she sees that statement. In my mind, it is what stops her and makes her want to try on one of the House of Koopslie headbands.
I also feel very confident in saying ‘Yes you can rock a headband’ because time and time again, I’ve shown women who genuinely thought that headbands were not for them just how amazing they look in a headband. They truly can rock one, and I am so happy to experience that ‘aha!’ moment.
