GEARing Up for 2013 – Sweaty Bands

Seriously, I can’t begin to tell you how much… but I’m going to have to try. I have a love affair with accessories of all kinds. Jewelry, purses, shoes, headbands… They are so versatile and fun. You can spice up any outfit by just changing out the accessories. What is better than that? How about an accessory that is also actually useful? Best thing ever.

I had been seeing these headbands around for awhile and was jealous of them. When I saw that Big River Running carried SweatyBands I knew I had to try one. Honestly, I was kind of skeptical. I had tried all the drug store brand “no slip” and “active” headbands but they always ended up on the back of my head by the end of the workout. I’ve got through my fair share of hairstyles, but have come to terms with the fact that medium-short hair looks best on me (plus- that is what the husband likes… so that’s what he gets! lol) When I cut my hair short headbands stopped being a fashion accessory and started being aΒ necessity. I don’t get how people can workout with their hair going all over the place. It makes me angry when I get hair and sweat all up in my face.

The SweatyBands headband I bought that day is still my absolute favorite – I literally wear it almost every time I work out. You may have seen it a few times…


It is neon pink, which matches about 80% of my workout gear. haha. I love that it stays put during my workouts, even during burpees… my favorite…. haha. Actually I haven’t been minding them lately. Mostly because they seem to always be paired with thrusters, and given the choice between burpees and thrusters I think I’d choose burpees. Who am I?! Anyway- back to the headbands…. They are lined with a velvet material that helps it stay put even when you are sweaty and all over the place. And they are dang cute. They come in different widths from thin, like my green sparkle band


to wide bands like i’m wearing below, and mid sized bands like little dreamer is wearing


Not only are the great for working out, but they are so cute I like to wear them even on girls days out!

  1. Ooh! I would love to try these! Ihave ALOT of hair, and the bands I have always fall off the back of my head. Drives me nuts. The pink is fabulous and I love the chevron print. Super cute!


  2. I’ve worn bondibands bc there the closest
    That I’ve found to actually fitting my head.
    My head is so small I have a really hard time
    Finding these. I bought one once at the expo for the
    Rock n roll marathon and paid a nice penny for it
    And it doesn’t fit either. So been kinda skeptical since then
    Hate to spend the $ and never wear it bc it doesn’t fit.
    Would love to try these to see if they can make it thru
    A CrossFit wod on my head. πŸ™‚


  3. I’ve been using Goody and am afraid to try anything else because so many products have failed before. Maybe Sweatbands are the cure πŸ™‚ Haha, I always see them at race expos! I guess there’s a good reason they’re still around.

    (I wear my headbands obsessively, too)


  4. I heard about sweaty bands on another blog and decided to buy one and see if actually didn’t move. They are so cute and they don’t move at all which is a first for headbands for me.. The only negative I would say it hurts my head after a few hours. But I would still recommend them to people and they have them in Canada too which is a plus πŸ™‚
