The foundation roll is made of a flexible nylon mesh, which, if you need something firmer you can easily pad out with cotton wool or something similar.
The roll measures approx 7.5" / 19cm in length and 3/4" / 2cm in width.
You can shorten it by tucking the ends inside.
It comes with 2  small hair grips, holding it onto the card, which can then be used to hold the roll in your hair.
I only have a few of these.
