I heart Sweaty Bands! (and a giveaway!)

I don’t know about you but I have no luck with headbands.  It either goes one of two ways – they don’t stay put and keep sliding back away from my hairline, or they give me massive headaches. I also think I have a narrow head, so they hurt more, or something, I don’t know. They just hurt.  IT SUCKS!!  There are so many cute headbands out there, but I can barely wear any of them.  🙁

Anyway.  My BFFer Allison walked into my house wearing this cute little sequin-y headband one day and she nearly exploded with excitement when I asked her where it was from.  She ranted and raved about Sweaty Bands, how ridiculously awesome they were, and cute, and how they stayed in place when she worked out.  Now, Allison is a work out FIEND.  No really, she had her boyfriend are hardcore, and she just also completed the Warrior Dash!  I wish I had that kind of drive.  But the fact that she rocks these headbands while working out, and running crazy races and more had me sold.  Lucky for me, the awesome team behind Sweaty Bands sent me a set to try them out!! I spent a full day rocking this thick, polka dotted beauty…


Besides being cute, it didn’t move an inch ALL DAY!! I’m not going to lie, I still got a bit of a headache from the headband, but it was hours and hours later, and after a few more wears, it stretched a bit and headaches no more!

Super cute headband, horrible picture of me. Mrrrphh.

The best part about this all is – Sweaty Bands sent me a headband to give away to you!! And because I’m nice – you get to pick which one you want from these two adorable designs!


As you can see the polka dotted headband is a little wider than the blue design. Neither is as wide as the one I’m rocking in the pictures.


I love the designs! If I could keep them all, I would. But I’m not THAT mean. 😉

  17. Yay, headbands! I am in the same boat as you–headbands are always slip-sliding or squeezing my head until I get headaches. The few “workout headbands” I have usually last five minutes before they fall off. I’d pick the black one!

  20. I would totally rock both of those! Love Sweaty Bands… my dad actually got me a thinner one when he was in Cincinnati for the Flying Pig Half, and I need to get my hands on a few more because they are absolutely fantastic for running!

    Glad to find another believer in them!

  21. Awesommme. I have the same problems with headbands & would love to try one that doesn’t make me feel like my brains are coming out my ears. I like the blue one a lot. 🙂

  40. um. these are so cute! i would totally rock the polka dots one, it’s adorable. well they both are. but i sort of love the polka dots more. woo.

  41. I’m the EXACT SAME WAY! Hard headbands are usually too small and dig into my huge head (headache) or if they’re stretchy, they slide right off the back of my head throughout the day. I’ve given up.

  42. I have the same problem with them rolling off of my head. I would love to have one of these to keep the sweat out of my eyes when I’m working out. Heck, I could have used it today! I like the polka dot one, more my style. Thanks.

  43. I would rock the polka dot!

  56. I love the blue one! Those are really nifty!

  57. Definitely the blue–I have one already, but I need another one in my rotation. I didn’t think they would really work, it’s just a ribbon and a piece of velvet, after all, but hallelujah! they stay in and keep the sweat off!

  68. I LOVE LOVE LOVE (that’s a lot of love, by they way) the blue Sweaty Band! I always have problems keeping those bands in my hair when I run. Usually I attribute it to the fact that I must have an oddly shaped noggin. But maybe, just maybe, Sweaty Band will save the day!

  69. I follow you on twitter, and liked both you and sweaty bands on FB.
    I would love a thick animal print sweaty band 😉

  70. Um hello, I’d rock BOTH! 😉
