I actually used the same technique as you would when starting on a crochet baby bootie. You simply work one row across the foundation chain and then around and across the other side.

Crochet Baby Headband with Flower Video Tutorial
Make a foundation chain to the length (per the measurements above).
Tip: When working try not to make stitches too tight or the headband will curl up.
Row 1: sc into 2nd ch from hk, sc into each ch across, 2 sc into last ch, work around the other side working an sc into each unused loop, sl st in 1st st.
Finish off; leaving 15cm end tail. Using your yarn needle, sew both ends together of the headband to join to make a circle. Weave in end with yarn needle.
Stretch the headband a little to get the curls out.
ch 3, sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: ch 1, 9 sc into ring, sl st in 1st sc.
Round 2: ch 4, sl st in 2nd sc, *ch 4, sl st in next sc, rep from * until the end, join in last st with a sl st.
Finish off; leaving 15cm end tail.
Using your yarn needle, sew the flower to the headband over where you joined the headband ends. This gives the headband a cleaner finish and hides that join.
You should now have a completed Crochet Baby Headband.
All the best,
