A few months ago I stumbled across some really, really, REALLY cute headbands on Instagram. Because I am an impulsive Etsy shopper, I immediately found the Etsy shop they came from and bought three of them. I’ve since connected with the shop’s owner, Jasmine, on Instagram and I adore her. And I think she has the best non-slip headbands out there. Like, THE best, you guys.
And they are so cute.
Here is my deal with headbands. I think they’re cute, and I like the functionality of them…until they’re no longer functional. I have a ton of hair. Headbands never stay put, they give me headaches, and I always end up ripping them off halfway through my workout (which is when I really want them to work!) because they slip.
I knew Jasmine’s headbands had rave reviews, and I was hopeful they’d be what I was looking for. I want something that can keep the frizzies in lockdown and hold up to my hair if I’m wearing it down.
FleurtyBands did all of that. Jasmine sent me a few extra headbands so I could share with you guys (and add to my new FleurtyBands hoarding problem).
These headbands stay put through the crazy workouts I’m doing (you can read my 21 Day Fix story here), and I usually forget I’m wearing them.
Each headband is an adorable ribbon (she has so many choices…you can see what’s available now here) with a velvet backing hand-sewn on. The stretch comes from a piece of elastic. And while I love them for working out, I also find myself wearing them just because.
Jasmine is fabulous to work with, and when I saw a ballerina headband I thought Claire would like, I asked if she could make it in toddler size. She did, and it turned out perfect (you have the option to buy adult, child, or adjustable).
I’ve been wearing my headbands now for weeks. Every time I wear them, I get compliments on how cute they are (at which point I brag on how awesome they are, too). As awesome as they are (and hand-made!), I’d expect to pay a premium, but Jasmine keeps prices low. All FleurtyBands are only $7.
