The colors of this headband made the lip ring a neccesity. I took my real one out a long time ago so that's a Halloween clip on. Lol. But it comes complete with Bad a$$ attitude. This headband is perfect for when you don't have the time to die your roots! Lol. Working tons and don't have time to dye and style the hair. Hope you enjoy it!
