Sparkly Soul Headbands

Hello, my name is Amy and I am a headband junky...

In all seriousness, I love, love, love headbands.  I wear one every single day.  Blair Waldorf stole the headband thing from me.  I hate having hair in my face.  All day, every day I am wearing a headband.  When I heard of a new headband brand, I had to try it out.

Sparkly Soul headbands are based in New York City.  They were founded by a triathlete and a marathoner--women who know what it means to play hard!   Who better to design a headband for athletes?

I have tried out every headband brand out there that I know of.  I have to report--these headbands rock!  Not only are they super cute (who does not love to sparkle?), but they are super effective.  I have had my Sparkly Soul headband for about two weeks now.  I wanted to try it out doing as many activities as possible so I could give you a complete review.  I have ran in it--outside and treadmill, taken spin class, yoga, strength training, HIIT workouts videos, grocery shopped, chased after a bunch of kids and a lot more boring stuff...my Sparkly Soul did not slip once!  It stayed put and kept my hair out of my face, all while looking cute at the same time.

The thing I like best about my Sparkly Soul headband is that it is solid all the way around.  The other sparkly
headbands I have tried have about a three inch stretchy section that goes in the back of your head and the rest is a non-stretchy fabric.  My Sparkly Soul headband is stretchy all the way around!  The other headbands I have get stretched out pretty quickly when I wear it as often as I have my Sparkly Soul over the past two weeks.  After two weeks of abuse by me and my little girl, my Sparkly Soul looks just as good as it did when I pulled it out of the package.

Not only did the lovely ladies at Sparkly Soul give me a hot pink headband to try out--they want to give one to one of you too!  It's Sparkly Soul giveaway time!  There are lots of options to enter.  You can entry each way once per day!

  1. Ok, I have to see this to believe it. I CANNOT find a headband that will stay on my head, I'm starting to think something is just wrong with me! :)

  2. Cute! I have the same problem as Karen. I don't know if I have a funny-shaped head or my hair is too slippery, but most headbands just pop right off the back of my head. I would love to try this one out!

  6. I want so badly to love these headbands. My head sweats so much though that tiny little strip just adds extra annoyance. I want to look cute but man my head does not appreciate them :-/

  14. I love these sparkly headbands! Most of my running headbands have a silicone-like material on the inside so they don't slip, but these are much cuter!

  23. I have really wanted to try those. I have the Sweaty Bands but I never wear them because they slip where the elastic is and it drives me nuts.
