$ 15.00

The aurora borealis are dancing in the midnight sky on this beautifully Alaskan headband. Being lucky to catch of the aurora borealis is a treat every single time -- even for lifelong Alaskans. It's as though the sky is alive. This headband is a celebration of this stunning phenomenon.

Facts about the aurora borealis:

  • The name 'Aurora' comes from the Latin word for sunrise or the Roman goddess of dawn.¬†
  • Aurora is caused by the collision of energetically charged particles with atoms in the high altitude thermosphere within our atmosphere.
  • Auroras also occur on other planets in our solar system including Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Mars. Similar to Earth's aurora, the lights have been seen close to other planets magnetic poles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How big are your classic headbands? Will they fit my head?
Most of our headbands are at least 18.5" around and 3.5" wide. They fit most head sizes but if you find that most headwear is too tight for you, these might be as well. The twist bands, fleece headbands and wool lined headbands are made larger so try one of those!
Do you design your fabric?
I design a lot of the fabric and you can find those designs in the "happy AK designs" category here:
Will these headbands stay on my head?
The most feedback I get about my headband is that they do not slip like other headbands. I purposely taper the back of the headbands to help them slip less. However, I think a lot of times people experience their headband slipping has to do with how you wear the headband. Make sure you keep the headband down on your forehead a little bit. The more you push it back on your head, the more likely it will slip.
