What size circular needles should I use?

I want to knit headbands for babies and toddlers. I want to use circular needles. But, I'm not sure what size to buy. I know that the needle size is based on the yarn, but what size cord should I use? I don't really understand how to use circular needles, though I can google it and figure it out. But, what size should I use? I've seen some patterns that say to cast on a certain number of stitches, but I don't really know what to do for making different sizes, you know?
