22″These are a no-brainer – I wear them in every workout. They are the only headband that doesn’t slip, and there is sparkle! If you have any fitness junkie in your life, they will love these. The price point is perfect for a stocking stuffer or a gift for just about anyone!”
“If there has been one company that I am long overdue to mention, it’s Sparkly Soul. A little fun fact about me is that my hair never ever does what I want it to, ever. From frizz, to flyaways, ain’t nobody got time for that. Fortunately, Sparkly Soul offers up a plethora of fun, sparkling headbands that stay in place, no matter how hard or heavy I go in the gym.
The bands are lined with velvet on the inside, to give them grip, and come in a plethora of bright, fun, and you guessed it- sparkly colors.”
“Yes, I realize worrying about my hair immediately eliminates any “street cred” I had with hardcore athletes, but I’m fine with that deduction. I don’t have the time nor the energy to fidget with my hair when I’m working out. I have tried numerous different headbands and they all let me down because I’ve had to waste more energy readjusting them rather than just not wearing one. Then, Sparkly Soul headbands entered my life last month. Only a month in and I’m obsessed with these things. I have the wide lavender sparkly headband and I’ve worn it on numerous runs and haven’t had to adjust it once. The first time I ran with it I actually kept touching the band only to find it was still exactly where I put it. All amazing Sparkly Soul headbands are made in New York.”
” I absolutely love it! I love how it adds the perfect sparkle to my workout AND adds the perfect touch when I’m dressed up! Must.Get.More.Colors… hehehehe
Besides the bands being gorgeous and sparkly, they don’t hurt to wear! If you wear headbands often, you will totally understand what I’m talking about!”
“Good news … there’s no more fiddling with your headband because you feel like your head is too small or the headband is too tight and causing a headache.
Enter Sparkly Soul! These headbands are a game changer! If you’re like us you’ll fall instantly in love because the headbands are so cute. Plus, they really work … obsessed! Check out this clip from the Today Show from 1/1/13 Predicting Sparkly Soul nonslip headbands as a style trend in 2013: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/50337175#50337175
We love that the whole band is elastic and glitter. The inside is a velvet feeling material – we are guessing this is what makes it stay in place, but not too tight to cause a headache. Genius!
We have worn them while working out and also dressed it up during the day. While working out it stays in place the whole time – absolutely love these, and want every color. This is the PERFECT product for someone who runs and wants to look cute working out or who just LOVES headbands.”
“After years and years of searching for the perfect elastic headband, I am extremely happy and relieved to say that I have finally found The One. This is actually a more difficult task than one might think; maybe my head just has a wonky shape, but all the other headbands I’ve tried always end up slipping off or giving me a headache. For a while I kept trying the Goody headbands that promised to be “ouchless” and “slide-proof” because I saw other girls wearing them around with no problems, but for me, going for a run or working out at the gym in those always turned into a never-ending battle of either trying to keep my sweaty hair out of my face or adjusting my slipping headband every 2 minutes; they would even slip off during non-rigorous activities like waiting for my water to boil to make lunch. So. Annoying.
Now enter: the Sparkly Soul headband! First of all, it’s glittery! People, I repeat: it’s glittery. I admit this was the number one factor that drew me in, but after trying it, turns out these headbands do everything they promise to do. Based in New York, Sparkly Soul headbands claim to be “no headache and no slip… no matter how intense your sports or fitness activity.” Now, I have biked, ran, done weight training, played flag football in these, and I must say, they always miraculously stay put. The inner part of the headband has a velvety velour feel to it and does a surprisingly better job staying in place than headbands with the rubberized lining; I also find the soft material more comfortable. The outer glittery side has more of a rough texture, kind of like extremely fine, short tinsel pieces, but still feels smooth, which is a major bonus. Although the appearance is very glittery, it is not actually made from glitter, so it doesn’t shed little glitter pieces everywhere when you wear it, nor does it lose its sparkle. Additionally, I’ve been using my headbands regularly for the last 6 months or so, and I haven’t noticed any loss in elasticity— definitely another plus!”
“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.”
“Oh, hey, you know what fall brings? COLLEGE FOOTBALL! The team at Sparkly Soul sent one fiery red, one in my Gators’ orange and blue.
These are bling-tastic on the outside and total runner-friendly practicality on the inside, thanks to an under lining that keeps the headband firmly in place as you run, cycle, cross train, whatever. Plus the bling makes them fancy enough to wear around town doing errands after that workout! They come in thin and wide versions, and my favorite was the wider orange and blue. GO GATORS! Super cute!”
“Sparkly Soul makes the most amazing headbands. Not only are the pretty, but they are so functional and amazingly enough don’t move. No, seriously, they do not move. At all. If they can stay on my head they will stay put for anyone. My head normally is like a slingshot with headbands. It’s all cute and pretty and then goes projectile. I’m sure I’ve taken out small birds in previous headband attempts. I first fell in love with Sparkly Soul when I was searching for the perfect headband for my Snow White costume. Remember this little thing?
“Sparkly Soul Headbands are not just for athletes! They are perfect for anyone who is looking for a solution to keeping their hair out of their face. I love how I can wear my Sparkly Soul Headbands all day! During my workout, daily run, household chores and picking up the kids from school, I know I can count on Sparkly Soul to keep my hair in place. I have to admit I think Sparkly Souls are extremely pretty and are even perfect for dressing your hair up from parties! I AM IN LOVE!”
“During my interview with PIX 11, you will see that I am wearing my Sparkly Soul headband. Dying from the Barre workout at Exhale with Rachel Nicks, I am still sparkling with my Sparkly Soul.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with my hair during my workouts. My hair gets in the way, looks unruly, and I have always been jealous of those with nice, long straight hair that stays neatly in a pony tail while doing cardio. I’ve tried numerous styles and headbands; I find most slip around on my hair during a workout, don’t tame my fly-aways, and I just don’t love most of the styles. But I LOVE my Sparkly Soul; here’s why.
1. Nonslip: At lunch today, my brother’s girlfriend told me that headbands bother her when she works out. They always slip around her head. Not the case with Sparkly Soul. If you wear it towards the front quarter of your head, you are ensured that they won’t slip. I even sometimes push them further back (as you can see in the picture above) and they still don’t slip.
2. Different Colors: There are so many to choose from, you can have one that will fit every outfit. Personally, I love my gray sparkle and wear it more or less with any color combo I have. They also have a thinner version and a thicker version of the band. To mix and match, try wearing two or even three at once.
3. Tames my curls and friz: I love wearing my Sparkly Soul towards the front of my head (as suggested). It covers the craze that my hair becomes during a workout.
4. Their attitude!: Never underestimate the importance of customer service. I’ve never met a nicer, more uplifing group of people than those who work at Sparkly Soul. They make you want to support them.
5. Fashion Forward: They are stylish. Nuff said.
6. Wear them anywhere: and I mean anywhere! On the website, Sparkly Soul says you can wear their bands for yoga, running, cycling, spinning (all true and done by me) as well as for dance and hiking.
For me? Fresh back from an invigorating trip to Park City Utah where I skied all day- every day- I promise you that my sparkly even made an appearance under my helmut at the top of my first black diamond slope! It helped keep my hair back and who knows? Maybe it was responsible for me successfully completing my first black diamond run.”
“When I wore my Sparkly Soul headband to dance last week – all of my girls basically looked at it like this:
“I wasn’t expecting much when I tried the Sparkly Soul headbands out, but I love sparkles so I figured I’d deal with the slipping for some added sparkle. However, I am hear to tell you – THESE HEADBANDS DO NOT SLIP! It says on the instructions that you should be careful not to push the band back too far, but my sister pushed the limits and still didn’t have any slippage!
Perfect for working out, or just adding a little sparkle to your day, the headbands come in two sizes, thin (3/8 of an inch) and wide(5/8 of an inch), and sparkly all the way around. They have SO many colors to choose from, limiting yourself is very hard. I know I will be going back to purchase some more! I really feel like I need a black one, a blue one, a green one, and maybe every other color!!
While the company was created by a marathoner and triathlete for all the women “who find their strength and soul while pushing themselves to their athletic limits”, I think it is a product that all moms will want too! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve struggled to get both the kids ready to face the day only to find out that there is little or no time left for myself. Now I just throw on my Sparkly Soul and put my hair in a pony and I’m good to go!
When it comes to working out in the bands, I have to admit I am a little partial to the thin band. I just like the way it feels like it is completely not even there! But, if I am looking to add one to my everyday outfit, I’m digging the wider look! Either way I am 100% loving these headbands. Chances are if you see me in the gym from here on out I will be rocking one of my Sparkly Soul, Inc headbands which is why I have picked them as my Mom Pick of the week!”
“I have been wearing both of these headbands a lot since then! I love them and LOVE that they stay put too!I have to say the thicker one, which is the pink, is my favorite.
I have thicker hair and I find it works best for me and I like the way it looks on me too! These headbands have seriously been saving me during pregnancy since I have those days where I do NOT want to mess around getting my hair to look cute. I just throw in one of the sparkly soul headbands and it makes me look like I tried to look half decent.”
“Last year I won two Sparkly Soul headbands from Victoria and fell in love. Every headband I had tried before these either slipped or gave me a headache. I was skeptically when the company said they did neither but the sparkles attracted my attention. Once I tried them out I was sold. These headbands have staid put during the Go! St. Louis Half, the Rock’N’Roll Savannah Half, multiple yoga inversions, volunteering at the hospital (hence the above pic) and so much more.
“I love glitter headbands. It’s a fact. They make putting my hair back easy and cute. Plus I like to match my entire workout outfit and the glitter headband is like the icing on my matching workout cuteness. And truth be told, it’s usually hot pink icing. I can attest that both sizes stay in place through a workout and a run. I wore the pink one to my internship at the hospital (post am workout) and it was a hit with the patients. I first heard about Sparkly Soul headbands from the uber inspiring Dorothy at Mile Posts. She actually rocked hers in a Saucony ad campaign.”
“I adore my very short hair. It fits my lifestyle and it is low maintenance. But it does require some maintenance. 🙂 I sweat a lot when I exercise, I wear contacts and those two combined can make for a very unhappy Tasha. I have been known to rock hats, scarves, braids and whatever else I can to keep the drama to a minimum. (Remember this blog post about my hair?) And yet there is one little, well, BIG problem that alters my decision….and it’s not even fashion. It’s headaches. I have MAJOR headaches. I have the type of headaches that lead to seizures. I am on medication for them. You can breathe on me and I will get a headache. Anything I put on my head has an expiration because the pain becomes more uncomfortable than the sweat in my eyes.
That’s when I was introduced to Sparkly Soul…They have ALL of these fantastic colors (some sparkly, some not, some multi colors) and I settled on a pink thin one and a black thick one. (I’m boring and cautious but I did opt for a little bit of sparkle). There are days that I am out for twelve or thirteen hours. They promised me that the headbands would fit my head and that they would not leave me with a headache. I was hopeful but, well….. Wow! I wore my thinner bling to Zumba the first night and it was a hit, not just because people were staring at it but because I had no sweat in my eyes and I DIDN’T have a headache!!!! I wore my thick one the next day. I’ve worn them just about EVERY DAY since then. But I was surprised that they did more than what I thought they would.
Even though I am in the public eye a lot, I, honestly, hate to be seen. It’s a habit I acquired as a child. I didn’t want to wear the sparkly headband because I didn’t want to draw attention to myself. It gets deeper. I have been afraid to let myself shine. That’s part of the reason why I chose the black headband even though I have dark skin and dark hair. But I felt like I REALLY stepped out of my comfort zone with those headbands. And it felt good to feel “girly” (I work in a gym and I have never been the girly type but that’s another blog). And it feels good to not criticize myself or care about being criticized. So, I decided to come ALL the way out….
I took this picture and thought of all of the ways I “sparkle” in spite of wanting to hide. I don’t want to be afraid to let any part of me shine. I want to give myself permission to shine, in spite of what I have thought in the past and my flaws. And I think I need another headband….maybe multi-colored. ::) You do too.”
“Running and working out is not something I enjoy, so if there’s anything that can make the experience more enjoyable, I’m in. I recently heard about Sparkly Soul on twitter and I was intrigued. They sell these super cute headbands that always stay in place and are covered in glitter! (If you know me at all, you know I love anything that sparkles!) Not only do they provide some cute fun for your workout, but they also motivate their customers by encouraging them to “sparkle” aka get moving!
Personally, I never really felt like I needed headbands for my (few and far between) workouts, but since I cut my hair, I have had a harder time keeping the hair out of my face. With my sparkly soul headband, I don’t get a headache and it totally stays in place the whole time! In addition to my new year’s resolution, I have another reason to start running and working out. In April, I will be participating in Atlanta’s Color Run! I am so beyond excited for it and I will definitely be wearing my Sparkly Soul headband the whole time!”
“I ended up wearing my headband ALL day long. It does stay in place with a velvet like backing. Its also the only headband like it to be elastic all around so you don’t have anything digging into the back of your head and you don’t have to worry about the headband being “turned around”.”
“The one thing you need to know about the headbands from Sparkly Soul it’s that they’re AWESOME! And I’m not just being nice because they’re letting me give one away. I’ve gone through several different headbands and this is the first one that actually works for me. I have a pretty tiny head, seriously, it’s child size, so I always end up having to bobby pin sports bands in place that way they don’t slide down during runs. Looooove my green wide band!
When I got my Sparkly Soul headband, I admit that I was a bit skeptical that it would stay on so I immediately tested it out. I put it on and proceeded to thrash my head around like I was at a Metallica concert. Eureka! They weren’t kidding about the no-slip grip! Oh, what’s that? You thought I’d test it by taking it for a run? How boring. There may or may not have been some air guitar involved, too… I’m so glad there’s no proof of this, uh, test.
Suffice to say, I was pretty darn pleased. I think the secret to the stayputability is because it’s elastic all the way around, not just a portion of it. It’s also lined with super soft velvet so it doesn’t pull or get stuck in your hair like other bands. I’ve worn it on several runs now (most recently the Pass to Bay 10k) and couldn’t be happier with it; in fact, I like it so much, I put it on my Runner’s Gift Guide. Me = happy
I didn’t have to mess with the band once during my 10k. They aren’t just for workouts, either. I’ve worn mine several times around town and always get compliments.”
“I’m giving away one of my newest favorite accessories, the Sparkly Soul headband. Since the days of stylish red pre-wrap in high school, I’ve always worn something in my hair to keep my “wispies” out of my face. I hate the thick cotton kind because they are never the right size, fall out, stretch out and get lost. Not to mention, they did nothing to up the cute factor of my workout wardrobe. Then came Sparkly Soul. It stays in place, doesn’t make my head look oddly shaped, and looks totally cute. Best of all, it keeps those darn wispies out of my face and off my neck when I start to sweat. In the video and the photo , I’m wearing the thin silver headband.”
“Make headband headaches and unruly strands of hair in your eyes a thing of the past. Lifestyle Expert Jenn Falik unearthed a collection of stylish and devilishly comfortable headbands to be worn in all walks of life.”
“Sparkly Soul Headbands are no headache and no slip….yes, REALLY no headache and no slip. I love some *sparkle* in my life – and these headbands are a great way to add a little something to your running wordrobe. Great to wear alone or paired with a pony tail. These fit adults and children and are great for any recreational activity when you want to keep your hair out of your eyes.
I’ve worn this magical glittery looking elastic band through several runs and many, many weights sessions. I’ve even worn it through a couple naps and overnight to sleep. No headaches. No snags. No slipping.
This sucker wasn’t moving no matter what I did. Love that!!! Besides looking oh-so-fabulous & sparkletastic, I loved that it was a fun pop of color without looking crazy overboard in my hair like I was too done up. Nope. Just the right amount of snazzy color to say, “I’m here to workout as I obviously have a headband in my hair, but it’s just enough to not be overdone & overdressed for activity. Basically, yes, I’m a chick and I care how I look, but I’m still going into beast mode all the while looking still looking good. My blogger friends were right. These Sparkly Soul headbands rock and they have a new converted fan in me. I’m done with those others!!”
” These things are amazing. They don’t slip. I kept reaching up to check because I am so used to the headband slipping and every time it was where it needed to be. PLUS they sparkle. HOW MUCH MORE DO YOU NEED? Oh lots of color options? They got you covered. They come in thin and wide widths, and are so incredibly stylish, I may be wearing mine at work as a headband right now.”
“I told you how cheap I am. But, not only am I cheap, I’m a pretty minimalist runner. I think this has something to do with my cheapness. I don’t run with a lot. Give me a pair of shoes, and I’m good to go. I don’t need a Garmin (although I do run with my phone – for safety and for my RunKeeper app) and I refuse to wear a fuel belt. (Just not my thing.) However, besides my shoes, I absolutely have to wear a headband. Something they don’t tell you when you’re pregnant is that you don’t lose a lot of hair while you’re pregnant. But, after you have the baby, your hair falls out and grows like crazy! I have a ton of “baby” hairs that stick straight out of my head and hang down in my face, unless they are pulled back with a headband.
I used to use those thick cloth headbands, but those always fell off my head. When I was feeling really cheap, I used pre-wrap, but every time I went to adjust those, they’d break and I’d be without a headband again. I finally wised up and bought some non-slip headbands. They were great! Until the elastic in the back stretched out and they no longer would stay put. Wah wah.
But, I finally found the answer to my slipping headband problems. Sparkly Soul headbands to the rescue! I’ve been eyeing these headbands all over the blogosphere for months! Sparkly Soul was nice enough to send me a thin and a wide headband to try out on my runs.
I am happy to say that they passed the no-slip test on several of my runs and CrossFit workouts. They stayed in place and I looked super fashionable at the same time! I loved the sparkles as well! My other non-slip headbands had glitter all over them, so not only would they slip off, but I’d end up with glitter all over my face (and MacKenna’s too). The sparkles on Sparkly Soul headbands don’t do that, which makes them even better!”
“I love some *sparkle* in my life – and these headbands are a great way to add a little something to your running wordrobe. Great to wear alone or paired with a pony tail…These fit adults and children and are great for any recreational activity when you want to keep your hair out of your eyes. They offer sparkle around the entire headband, not just the top. The whole headband is elastic and stretchy – hence no headaches. We struggle with enough out on a long run – who needs to add a headache to the mix. They offer dozens of colors and designs.
“10. Headbands ($) Specifically Sparkly Soul headbands. I have tried lots of different headbands but theses puppies are the only ones that actually stay put on my small head. Not only do they keep the flyaways out of your face, but they add a touch of sass with their sparkly fabric.”
“Even before I tried Sparkly Soul headbands for the first time, I loved the concept: sparkly, stylish headbands that are designed to stay in place when you’re working out. Too good to be true? Nope! I’ve been wearing Sparkly Soul headbands for over a year now – using them for everything from running to yoga to spinning to Pilates – and I am still their biggest fan.
Not having to adjust my headband during a workout is a small but wonderful thing. And looking chic during a workout is, of course, a must. I’ve built up quite a collection over the last year. I really have a different headband for whatever mood I’m in. The other day I went for a bike ride on my indoor trainer and I was feeling the blue/orange stripes:
I was on the bike for an hour and my headband didn’t budge. Like I said: Best. Headbands. Ever.
You don’t have to sparkly only when you’re working out, though. I wear my headbands on a day-to-day basis just because I love them so much. Here I am out to dinner wearing my charcoal Sparkly Soul:
I’m just one of many fans of these awesome headbands. If you’ve given up on finding a headband that stays in place while you work out, do yourself a favor and get a Sparkly Soul! You can shop thin headbands (3/8″ in width) or thick headbands (5/8″ in width) – in loads of fun colors.”
“One other thing that may not ring true with the fellas is a little treat or sparkle added into your day and work outs can make you really feel good. I got a gorgeous pink sparkly headband. OH ya know I love me some sparkles! They claim that they are no slip and super comfy, won’t give you that awful head band headache that so many of these bands can do. I could not wait to put it to the test. You may have heard me talk about my peanut shaped skull before but let me refresh your memory….my head…its shaped like a peanut! It seems like so many of these so called “sports headbands” offer you comfort and the ability to do their job and stay where you put them. Keeping the hair out of your face and sweat from your eyes just don’t do it. Or they pop off as soon as you break a sweat or start jumping around.
So I put my Sparkly Soul headband to the test. I have ran in it, i have work out, WOD’ed, Burpee’d and sweated in it. I have worn it out grocery shopping ,you know how sweaty that can get ; ) and just around the house to keep my hair from my face. i have a lot of hair. So my verdict on the Sparkly Soul headband….
Out of 10 points, 10 being the best:
Comfort 10+ : Absolutely no headache at all, very comfy and easy to put on.
No Slip and Grip 9: If you wear it as instructed towards the front of your hairline it really does stay put even in the sweatiest of times.
Style 10: I LOVE SPARKLES!!! I hope I was clear on that ; )
Price 8: Good price not super cheap but for a good product it is totally worth it.”
“Keep your eyes on the prize, or at least the road with a sparkly headband from sparklysoul.com. I hate having hair in my face when I work out. I like everything swept back neatly so I can concentrate on the task at hand. These non-slip headbands come in two widths (3/8″ and 5/8″) and a dozen different sparkly colors.
I’ve been wearing them on training runs and love the way they keep wisps out of my face. But here’s the problem, my 6 year old keeps stealing them to wear to tennis. My advice, buy a few colors and give some to the kids. ($15 per band)”
“How many times are you fixing your hair during a workout? What about when you are running a race and your headband falls off? This happens to me all the time, and I HATE it. It’s so annoying, and I have better things to do while I work out then fix my hair. Then the AMAZING people at Sparkly Soul contacted me to see if I would try out their headbands. Of course I would!! I got them in the mail, and was so excited. I took off the headband I did have, and immediately put it on. It was instant LOVE!
They sent me two styles of headbands: 3/8 (thin) and 5/8 (think). I got the gold thin and silver wide headbands. I wear the gold a little bit more because it’s ASU colors. Plus, it was the ASU/Arizona game. I had no choice It’s a requirement!!
I was immediately impressed with the quality of work. They were absolutely beautiful! I loved that the glitter was actual fabric, and didn’t fall in my hair or down my face. The inside is a velvet feeling material. I don’t know if that’s what makes it stay in place, but it’s amazing. I have wore then while working out and also dressed it up for work. While working out it stay in place the whole time. I absolutely love these, and want every color. This is the PERFECT product for someone who runners or just LOVES headbands.”
“[W]hen it comes to accessories, wearing comfortable, and non-slip headbands is just as important. Let’s face it, when you are sweating, running, cursing burpees, the last thing you want to worry about is your headband sliding down your face or giving you a headache. I find that SO ANNOYING! So I was one happy woman, when I discovered Sparkly Soul on social media. I purchased my first 2 over the summer and I am not only a loyal customer, but an Ambassador. I LOVE the product, the company, and their positive message that they deliver!
I’ve been meaning to brag about them, so this is long overdue….It’s hard to not look awesome when you are SPARKLING! Yep, I pretty much live in these too now. Yoga, running, mountain climbers, training clients, and even on rest days! I get so many compliments and many clients and friends have ordered not only for themselves, but for their daughters. If you don’t believe me, you should read all the testimonials on their Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. “
“Awesometastic Headbands! Seriously! These things are awesome! And, their people are pretty awesome, too! The contact that I have had with them has been quick and courteous. They have gone above and beyond in the ‘helpful’ category. Like most people, I was struggling with fly aways and headbands that claimed to stay in place but, in all actuality, did not. I had spent a small fortune on various headband purchases and was about to give up all hope when I stumbled across Sparkly Soul headbands via a blog post earlier this year (possibly even very late last year). Dang it!, I wish I knew which one so I could link back up to it. It may come back to me as I work through this post. If so, I will edit it in! I used a blogger coupon code and ordered three bands; when they arrived I eagerly plopped the black one on my head and headed off to my CrossFit box. Not only did I receive compliments from my fellow lady boxmates but the headband STAYED in PLACE the ENTIRE WOD! For real! I was instantly in love The Sparkly Soul headbands rock my world because they have the velvet, non-slip lining around the entire band. There is no elastic piece on these headbands! I love this! And, they fit comfortably (no pinching or tugging at those little hairs near my ears!) and they do not cause headaches. In fact, I hardly notice that I am wearing one at all and often have to ‘touch’ my head to be sure that I have one on before I head out for a WOD or run. Awesomeness!
Since that first day, I have used the black band for just about every WOD and run. It has even survived a Tough Mudder event with me! For real! Check it out! It is still on my head (and, in the spot I put it!) at the end of Tough Mudder: Austin!
“I love this charcoal Sparkly Soul headband.
Now that I wear gym clothes a majority of the time, I have to find ways to accessorize, not that I have ever been good at that! I love these headbands because they have non-slip backing the entire way around. My hair is really fine, so most head bands slip right off during any exercise. And, the sparkle material also goes the entire way around the headband. I have worn mine all-day with no problems. This will be a staple in my active wardrobe!”
“Another recent favorite to add to the sparkle is my Sparkly Soul headband. I have worn that thing almost every day since I got it. I guess I really need to buy more of them. While growing my hair out to donate I tend to be a ponytail girl, so it is nice having that little bit of sparkle added to my hair. Plus the headband seriously stay in place. This headband really pleased my naturally picky spirit!! Must get more!!”
“At least I looked cute at the dr’s office with my Sparkly Soul headband. LOVE. I bought it at the Diva Dash last month, and have worn it on most every run since. It’s the ONLY headband I’ve ever worn that doesn’t hurt or go flying off the back of my huge head. And it’s cute!”
“For me, feeling good in my workout clothes (and accessories) is pretty important. If I go to the gym feeling dumpy in my gear, my workout just feels… blah. I’m kind of in need of a big workout gear overhaul, but I at least have a few items that keep me feeling motivated to move.
First, of course, I have my awesome Sparkly Soul headbands.
They not only stay in place the whole workout and keep my hair out of my face, but just make me smile when I’m wearing them. I’ve tried a lot of workout headbands over the years, and let me tell you, fun and funky (and sparkly!) is the way to go.”
“Sparkling while running: sign me up. I had read a lot about these headbands, everyone seemed to be crazy about them so I wanted to give them a try. They are lovely and you don’t need me to tell you that as that is obvious. What you need me to tell you is that they REALLY don’t ever E.V.E.R fall off.
I had tried several headbands before as my hair tends to get in my face specially with yoga. They all slipped away as I did my first downward dog. If yoga didn’t keep them in place running was out of the question. But people swore by these sparkling beauties so I had nothing to lose. I wore the black one for a 3-mile run. No slip. Nada. I wore them later to the gym. No slip either! If they hold up in those two activities yoga will be no problem.
Now that I know they truly don’t slip I want them in every single color. All of them. ”
“There are definitely mornings when I am feeling a little off that I can turn it around by putting on my Sparkly Soul headband … and I start feeling fierce!”
“You may have seen a buzz about a fabulous company called Sparkly Soul going on around the healthy living interwebs. Sparkly Soul is a company that makes awesomely sparkly headbands that actually stay in place without resulting in a massive migraine. Seriously. I think these headbands rock. I have trouble keeping generic drugstore brand headbands on my head, and the ones that are specifically designed to stay on your head usually give me raging headaches after 30 minutes. I first tried my Sparkly Soul headband by lounging around the house and it a) didn’t budge and b) didn’t give me a headache! Winning! Next, I decided to put it to the ultimate test and wore one when I did my mid-week 5 mile run. Same results! Didn’t move and no headache. Plus, they’re super cute. I mean, who doesn’t want a glittery headband?!” http://running-tall.com/home/2012/2/2/sparkly-soul-giveaway.html
” I love all things shine worthy and I especially love to still maintain my girlie look when I work out, and thanks to Sparkly Soul I can do just that!! I mean it doesn’t get much more fierce than being able to train like the guys while still looking femme fatale hot!”
“If you haven’t already checked out Sparkly Soul, I recommend you do so, stat! The headbands are as functional as they are cute. They never slip and come in two widths – my favorite is the wide band. I always receive compliments when I wear one and they are a perfect way to add a bit of sparkle to a race-day outfit.” http://eathostrunstyle.blogspot.com/2012/07/my-first-20-mile-run.html
” I won a headband. I was able to chose which band I wanted and within a week I received a gold, thick size band. And let me tell you it is the most comfortable headband I’ve ever wore and owned. There is just something about them that are super soft yet form fitting and give you the no headache thing. Not to mention pretty stylish too!” http://www.strollerinthecity.com/archives/2288
“It is well documented on this blog that I always wear headbands to work out and run races. Over the last three years, I’ve collected a lot of headbands from a few different brands. My most recent headband obsession is Sparkly Soul. The headbands are (obviously) sparkly, they’re cute, they stay in place and they’re just a lot of fun. I own two; pink and blue, both in the thin style.
Anyway, this headband made me win the race. Not really, but it did keep my hair off my face, kept me looking good (helpful when a cute guy spoke to me after the race.) helped antisocial me make some friends and was just a lot of fun to wear. This photo is me after the race, so you can see that the headband held my hair in place QW (quite well).”
“Let me tell you, I have tried every headband on the planet, and this is the only one that will ALWAYS stay put on my head during short runs, long runs, strength training and cross training.”http://cupcakekellys.com/blog/2012/7/30/do-you-like-to-sparkle-when-you-sweat.html
“Have you ever had a bad hair day that’s so bad that even a pony tail doesn’t look right in your hair? I have! Especially since I am more active and doing so much this summer. That’s why I feel in love with Sparkly Soul! They make beautiful head bands that hold your hair out of your face and come in all different colors. They are sparkly and beautiful and add that little sparkle you may need to make yourself look more put together. Flyaways can make someone look so frazzled!!
I received a thin band and a wide band in black, because it goes with so much! I love them! They are so comfortable and they stay in place ALL DAY!! I wear them to workout, I wear them to work, and I wear them out for fun!! Above is a picture of me in the thick band. It might be hard to see it but you can see how it holds my hair and all my flyaways back. The thin one I wore all week for working out and I didn’t want to take a pic because I am GROSS after a work out! If they get sweaty or dirty, I just wash them and then use them again. The thin band one is great for just hanging around because it adds a little touch of sparkle. The wideband one is great for when I workout or I’m really physically active while outside.”
“We all have those days – we’ve been covering Fashion Week all week, have no time to wash our hair, and then…suddenly…we pass a mirror. On such days, a headband polishes our look and a sparkly accessory makes us appear and feel more pulled-together. The Sparkly Wide Headbands($17) from Sparkle Soul has a great amount of sparkle — perhaps a bit too much to wear to the gym, but, live dangerously! Make your own rules!” http://www.latest-hairstyles.com/accessories/5-items-on-our-hairs-valentines-day-wish-list.html
“I read some reviews of the headband on other blogs and saw the praise they were getting on social media so I decided it was time to try it out for myself. I have to admit, I was skeptical. I have tried many athletic headbands before that claimed to be non-slip but each and every time, I’d get about a mile into my run and those headbands would slowly start to slip off. I saw these headbands and thought, “It’s impossible that these headbands are that cute and actually functional.” Well, turns out, they really are that cute and extremely functional. I’ve tested the Sparkly Soul headband on different types of runs- tempo runs, easy runs, long runs, sprints- and without fail it stays glued to my head. It even stayed on during a 12-mile run without me having to adjust it at all! The reason this adorable, sparkly headbands stay in place is because they are backed with a velvet-like material that grabs onto the hairs on your head. The headband stays put during other exercises as well. I tried it with yoga and it was fantastic. It didn’t budge when I did downward dog or slip when I did my vinyasa. I swear, it doesn’t move.
Moral of the story? If you’re in the market for a highly functional and unbelievably cute and sparkly headband for your runs, check out Sparkly Soul headbands.”
“I swear I have the weirdest shaped in the world, but somehow these awesome headbands stay on. I covet my thin pink one. Sparkly Soul you are the prettiest and most useful headbands around!”
“I sported my new black Sparkly Soul headband to work yesterday. Yes work. along with my north face fleece. yes its JUNE. Its awesome. These headbands are totally worth it. They fit my small head and stay put.”
“Sparkly Soul Headbands I have said it more than once but these are now my favorite running head bands. As a lady who is trying her best to work the sweep bang thing, I can’t stand when my bangs or fly-aways end up in my face during a run. But, due to my head shape, many bands either pop off during a run or are so tight they give me a headache. These bands are the only ones that stay in place through rain, sweat, relays, and marathons while still giving me a bit of added sparkle! It became a joke by the end of the weekend as only 2 people in our van didn’t rock sparkle headbands!”
“Sparkly Soul Headbands: Yes, they are colorful and fun, but they also happen to be the most amazing way to keep your hair out of your face while working out. They have a patent-pending design that keeps them exactly where you put them, no matter how vigorous the sweat session (as it is I have a tendency to sweat a lot, and to see me in Flywheel, you would think I had a medical condition or something- seriously, it is a tad embarrassing). While at first I planned on just wearing the headbands to spin, they have somehow crept into my everyday ensembles- making a boring ponytail, littered with frayed hairs along my forehead, appear sleek and styled.”
“I love them like NO other headband. My husband tells me I use the word LOVE too often so describe things so I tried to think of another word to use to describe how much I like their bands, but nothing other than LOVE works. In the Saucony pictures I am wearing the thin band in Ice Pink. They have some fun new bands – hello RED, WHITE and BLUE for the Olympics and have recently added satin bands. I haven’t tried the Satin bands yet but you can bet I will be placing an order for these soon. If they are anything like my sparkly bands then I am pretty sure they rock.”
“Much like how C-3PO was fluent in 6 million forms of communication, this hair holder backer is fluent in 6 million forms of function and beauty. SERIOUSLY. It magically stays on your head no matter how intense your workout thanks to its patent-pending design. It never gives you a headache, won’t slip, nor will it cause breakage. Plus? It’s so cute, you won’t want to relegate it so(u)lely to excercise. Mine makes a cameo with my street clothes at least once a week.”
“I was ecstatically surprised that I wore my thin, silver, glittery headband all day and evening around the house and never had to adjust it once. I had to check to see if it was still on my head a few times and no fail, it was there every time I checked! Now, as many of you know, I’m about as pregnant as they get and am not exactly out pounding the pavement or working it at the gym these days. I wasn’t entirely sure how to really put these headbands to the test so I got creative:
-They survived playtime with the nearly-two year old (who, in spite of my big round tummy still thinks it’s fun to jump all over mommy and use baby as a spring board) without budging.
-They survived me reorganizing my house after months of renovations and running (yes, I’m using that term somewhat liberally) up and down stairs, moving boxes, furniture, digging in and around my house.
-They survived me sleeping. Yes, you heard me. My ultimate test was to wear my headband to bed and see where it ended up and how quickly it would slide off my head. I woke up in the morning and it was still on my head, right where I left it.
All in all, I am VERY impressed with the function of these bands. Add in that they are pretty and sparkly and affordable ($15USD for the thin, $17USD for the thick) makes them pretty much irresistible. I have no doubt in my mind that they will become a staple in my fitness life as they already are in my day-to-day life.”
“I think I ran 6 miles that day and the [Sparkly Soul] headband did not budge the entire time. As you can see from the photo I took of the inside of the headband, there is a soft velvet on the inside that prevents slipping. The velvet goes all the way around therefore the headband is one continuous piece. This is the first time I saw that and feel like it helped to keep the headband from moving. Another thing I noticed right away was that the sparkles did not come off during my run. I have worn sparkly things before and have ended up with sparkles all over my hands and face. The sparkles stayed on the headband and after 3 weeks of wearing the headband, they continue to stay that way. The headband looks the same today as the day I received it. The last thing I noticed during that first run is that I did not notice the headband the entire time. This is huge. I have tried other popular running headbands and have to pull it within a mile of my run because it is putting too much pressure on my big head. My Sparkly Soulheadband fit snuggly but did not feel like it was squeezing my head. Since my first test run, I have continued to wear both the wide and thin headbands on runs and have been incredibly impressed with them. They function better than I expected when looking at them before. As far as how they look, I love them. They are very cute and I have actually begun wearing them everyday to keep my hair out of my face. I always have my hair in a ponytail, but the stray hairs tend to drive me crazy. I finally found a headband that I can wear the entire day that I feel cute in and don’t get headaches. I also think they look cute wearing them together.”
“During the run, I forgot that I was wearing the headband. It didn’t press too hard against my head but I also didn’t have to fiddle with it at all. After three miles in the rain, the thin little strip of sparkle had not moved an inch. My hair was wet and frizzy but it was held in place perfectly by the headband. It didn’t take long but I am sold on the magic of Sparkly Soul. Sweating in Style won’t be hard if I make sure to keep Sweating in Sparkles.” http://www.sweatinginstyle.com/2011/11/sweating-in-sparkles-my-first-giveaway.html
“I really love that the ENTIRE band is stretchy all the way around and that the sparkles are actually part of the fabric (so they won’t fall off and sprinkle all over your face)….So what’s the verdict? These bands don’t move. At all. Not only do they stay in place during my workouts, they don’t even slip in my SLEEP. Yes, I accidentally fell asleep wearing one and when I woke up it was still in the exact same position. There is something magical about the velvet on the inside of the headbands. Who knew that velvet + hair = no slip? Genius….I will be wearing these headbands all the time, and not only for runs or workouts. They also spice up an outfit and make a “lazy day bun” look like it was intended!” http://www.theathletarian.com/2011/10/23/sparkly-soul-review-and-giveaway/
“It didn’t seem to matter narrow or wide both of the bands – it was given stay where you put them. The first couple of times I wore them out running I kept reaching up to make sure it was still there. It was and still right where I had left it. No slipping, NONE! …Sparkly Soul bands are stretchy ALL THE WAY AROUND! That’s right you get 360 degrees of head hugging love. I was really worried that would cause me to have headaches after awhile, but it didn’t! It hugs your head gently. Also the sparkles are just that sparkles that stay on the head band. They aren’t little glitters that end up all over you…” http://www.christyruns.com/2011/10/i-am-mistress-of-my-domain-and-sparkly.html
“You may have seen a buzz about a fabulous company called Sparkly Soul going on around the healthy living interwebs.

“We are in LOVE! It is absolutely the first headband that doesn’t get lost, stays put on the soccer field, and makes you feel like a diva!…They are great for your active sparkly kids – no more slipping! Coordinate a wide variety of colors with schools, sports teams, dance and cheerleading squads.” http://westchester-rivertowns.macaronikid.com/article/206170/sparkly-soul-glitter-headbands
“I tried the headbands this week at my boot camp class. And I LOVED them. I struggle with headbands slipping due my awkwardly shaped head…but let me tell ya – this thing did not budge! It stayed in place the entire class, and never failed to look cute while the rest of me did not.” http://mileswithstyle.com/2012/02/03/fashion-fridays-sparkly-giveaway/
“These bands are very well made… the seam is practically invisible and well constructed… and I can vouch that they do not slip… as a matter of fact, they grab quite securely.” http://eatrunsail.blogspot.com/2012/02/i-am-sparkly-soul-are-you-review.html
“When I wore the blue tonight while on the Stairmaster for 30 min, it didn’t move an inch. I actually forgot I was wearing it, which is a great thing when working out. I hate fussing when I am in the zone. I liked the touch of Sparkle added to my workout look. It is a simple way to add a lil sass … especially if you were doing a Zumba or Hip Hop class.Also, I could easily wear this while running errands on the weekend. With the number of colors they offer, you can easily find anySparkly Soul band to match your outfit.” http://www.weightoffmyshoulders.com/2011/12/sparkly-soul-headband-review-giveaway/
“Sparkly Soul not only makes a functional headband that stays in place but it is ultra cute in bright, sparkly colors.”
“I was absolutely smitten as to how well the headband held up during the run…It was such a cute accessory for a casual day, and I really like how the sparkly design goes all the way around the band instead of just halfway like some other headbands. Overall, I love these headbands. I’m sold!” It was such a cute accessory for a casual day, and I really like how the sparkly design goes all the way around the band instead of just halfway like some other headbands.”
“Meet Sparkly Soul headbands – a company that really “gets” it and delivers a high quality headband to their customers… I was immediately impressed by the look of the headbands, they are gorgeous. The sparkly part of the headband is actual material and NOT glitter so there is no worry about glitter falling off into your eyes or getting everywhere. The inside of the headbands are velvety feeling material and the Sparkly Soul logo is sewn into the inside perfectly. So they passed the style round of my expectations, with flying sparkly colors. How they would function was now the real question! So I tried them out in various settings in various conditions…I wore the wide pink sparkly headband to my first 5K race as well! I received a ton of compliments on the headband! It stayed in place the entire race – thankfully, because I was not stopping to pick it up! I tested my wide black sparkly headband out on a run on the treadmill – but I didn’t wear my contacts for this run, instead I put on my glasses AND my over the ear headphones – I will admit I was skeptical the headband would pass this test – but it DID! I have never found a headband that would stay put when I was wearing my glasses and over the ear headphones! So I was more than impressed, I was ecstatic! These headbands are seriously the most luxurious, pretty, sparkly, functional I have ever found! I can not recommend Sparkly Soul headbands enough.”
“You might have heard a lot of hype about these headbands recently from my Fitfluential friends. Let me tell you the hype is all worth it, these things rock. First of all sparkle = awesome. Second these things stay put. They don’t move … and that’s BIG…I gave up headbands five years ago because I was convinced I had a weird head shape / floppy ears/ big skull type of situation going on.” http://www.lifeafterbagels.com/blog/2012/02/01/sparkly-headbands-for-everyone/
“However, magic or not, I can tell you that Sparkly Soul headbands are awesome in many ways.
- They do not move at all.
- They are so comfortable that you don’t even notice them.
- I love how the whole band is stretchy with a velvety inside. So soft. No hair dents.
- They come in twelve awesome colors.
- There is a thin and thick option and they BOTH STAY ON. I had a thin sparkly band from another company. It once started slipping during a race and ended up being such a distraction that I finally took it off. No such problem here.
- They are sparkly. Enough said.”
“Not only do Sparkly Soul headbands look adorable, they don’t budge. Not during yoga inversions, not during flying leaps across the soccer field, not during runs, not turn the most rough and tumble boxing workout and (as I learned last weekend) not during naps or entire days spent in bed. The soft velvet lining means no headaches, no snarls, and no hair dents…I am tempted to order the rest of the rainbow. They’re that good. Let the record reflect that I have no cold medicine to blame for my enthusiasm, just a really great product.” http://ontapfortoday.com/2012/01/27/today-the-good-the-bad-and-the-sparkly/
“Well, of course, they can look as pretty as you want, but if you need a headband to use when working out, you want to make sure that it really holds up in the non-slip department. Especially for someone like me, who has super smooth hair without a lot of grip- I need something that’s going to stay put!…So I put both of these headbands to the test over the past couple of weeks and I am happy to report that not only are they super adorable, but they definitely do hold up their end of the bargain. No slipping for me!” http://www.sweettoothsweetlife.com/2012/02/01/sparkly-soul-headband-giveaway/
“During the intro class that day we did cartwheels, somersaults, backward rolls, skipping, push-ups, pull-ups, planks, bear crawls, squats and all kinds of other functional movements involving nothing but body weight. It was dope and I definitely pushed myself to the limit. My headband stayed intact and didn’t move an inch the entire time. Even during the front and backward rolls. Was it really non-slip? Yup! …All in all, these headbands are everything! I love them! They do the job they’re supposed to and they’re cute! “
“I received these on Saturday and was SO stoked to try them out while I took power yoga on Sunday! You see, I never, ever, ever, ever, ever can ever pull of wearing headbands. My head is like shaped a way where they ALWAYS ride up my head and I have all these weird hairs fluffing out my my ears and it’s just a mess. I don’t think I’ve ever worked out wearing a headband in my life because they are too annoying. When I do wear headbands, I am adjusting them constantly. Given my history I was skeptical whether or not the Sparkly Soul headbands would work for my little head. Let me tell you something. These. Headbands. Rule…My hair is a little messy but I never adjusted the headband once during or after class!”
“One thing that I, and likely all of you, cannot stand is my hair getting in my face when I’m working out. The only thing worse is having my headband fly off my head while I’m trying to set a PR…I was ecstatically surprised that I wore my thin, silver, glittery headband all day and evening around the house and never had to adjust it once. I had to check to see if it was still on my head a few times and no fail, it was there every time I checked!…They survived playtime with the nearly-two year old (who, in spite of my big round tummy still thinks it’s fun to jump all over mommy and use baby as a spring board) without budging…They survived me sleeping.

“What I LOVE about them: They are very comfortable! I kind of have a big head (I’m not talking about my ego), I mean, I literally have a big head. So most headbands really squeeze my head and give me headaches. I LOVE that they are sparkly all around the entire band. and the best thing… they really DO NOT slip when I’m working out! I’ve worn them while I run and when I crossfit. I’ve never had to stop working out to readjust them. They stay put!”
“I’m sure you’ve seen “non-slip” headbands all over the place. I run into them at every race expo and even fell prey to the temptation once, but I won’t mention names. Although it did survive my first marathon, it ironically slipped right off my noggin and into road side oblivion on my very net run. Epic fail. Sparkly Soul headbands, on the other hand, DO NOT SLIP. Plain and simple. I have decently thick hair, and these bands – even the thin ones – can tame it like no other headband I’ve worn. The thing that sets Sparkly Soul headbands aside, at least in my opinion, is that the entire band is stretchy, sparkly, and grippy all the way around. Other bands have a design only partway around and the only stretchy section is this ugly piece in the back of the band.”
“I love wearing cute headbands when I work out but I have found most of them either give me a headache or fall off mid-workout therefore defeating the purpose. I have seen Sparkly Soul headbands around and thought they are be too good too be true because they are super cute, elastic, and non-slip…I knew these headbands would be a winner if they stayed on my head while working out because they looked fantastic and were super comfortable! Before I injured myself I took these babies out for a few runs and they successfully stayed in place!! I did not have to adjust them at all, they did not pull my hair as some headbands do and they did not give me a headache…I also wore the headband to the NYC Blogger playdate and it stayed on through the whole Kettlebell Kickboxing class…plus it was cute enough to keep on for lunch! I love the versatility, you can basically go from the gym to out on the town with the same headband!!…If you love to sparkle and have a lot soul then I highly recommend these headbands!!” http://www.runninglovingliving.com/2012/02/friday-favorites-sparkly-soul-review-and-giveaway.html
“I’m a huge fan of headbands, especially for working out, but as most of you have probably experienced, it’s tough to find one that is comfortable, cute and stays put. Well, hold tight (no pun intended!) ladies because I think we may have found our match!…These headbands are great for working out and cute enough to wear around too! So far I have a thin silver headband and a thicker black headband and I love them both. I may have to go back and get some colorful ones!”
“I have to tell you… the Sparkly Soul headbands DID NOT MOVE! They didn’t move while sprinting nor over the course of a 100 minute run. The sparkle bands didn’t even slip while downward dogging or while chasing after a little runaway pup. A-MAZING. Major kudos to that velvety fabric on the inside. I wouldn’t have thought that velvet wouldn’t budge on hair. Who knew? Super comfy too! Another thing I liked? The glitter is actually part of the fabric so it goes all the way around. There is no “bottom” to the headband. Anyway you put it on is great! Since it’s part of the fabric, the glitter doesn’t fall off and make a mess. You know how glitter tends to get everywhere?! Not these SPARKLES. No mess!” http://www.livebreathehuzzah.com/2012/01/31/sparklysoul/
“When it comes to running gear, I am pretty picky…I have a big head and I get headaches easily from tight headbands…I put the thin headband on and headed to my treadmill for my first test run…I think I ran 6 miles that day and the headband did not budge the entire time… there is a soft velvet on the inside that prevents slipping. The velvet goes all the way around therefore the headband is one continuous piece. This is the first time I saw that and feel like it helped to keep the headband from moving.

“They do NOT slip. I know…you have heard that before….but these really don’t! See how they are stretchy ALL the way around? They really do stay in place! …They do not squeeze my head to the point of a migraine! I have a big melon and therefore some headbands just dig into my head and hurt. These do not! They tame my wild hair without pain. Score!” http://workoutmommy.com/2012/01/25/5-reasons-why-i-love-headbands-from-sparkly-soul-giveaway/
“These bands are great, because as advertised, they don’t slip off while moving around and are very comfortable…One thing that I have always disliked about headbands is the nagging feeling they give you behind your ears, with the Sparkly Soul headbands you don’t have to worry about any kind of discomfort. Plus they will turn you into a fastinista when you are hitting the road or the treadmill. Who doesn’t love a little bling on the run?” http://www.30somethingmotherrunner.com/2011/12/12/win-sparkly-soul-headbands/
“I love sparkly things and I love to work out. Don’t think these two things go together? Think again! I have a new obsession: Sparkly Soul headbands…These headbands do. not. slip. In fact, they have a patent-pending design that makes sure they stay in place no matter how intense the sports or fitness activity. I’ve used mine while doing yoga, spinning and taking classes at the gym, as well as during a walk/run…My Mom has gone running, done yoga and played golf wearing her Sparkly Soul headbands and feels the same way I do about them – love. Actually, I went to a yoga class yesterday and forgot to wear mine. I had pulled my hair back in a ponytail, but I had flyaways and some of my shorter layers in my face the whole time. I’m never forgetting a Sparkly Soul again!”
“I would consider myself to be a (fairly) serious runner. My running shoes, clothes, and accessories need to be functional. Up until recently, I had yet to find a headband that I was satisfied with. I need a headband that: keeps my hair/bangs out of my face, is tight enough to stay in place during a long run, – doesn’t give me a headache by the end of a run and retains it’s elasticity over time…And then I found Sparkly Soul…Finally, a headband that keeps my hair out of my face, doesn’t give me a headache, doesn’t rip my hair when I take it off, and doesn’t move (it didn’t budge at all on my 22 mile training run or the half-marathon I just raced). But, best of all, Sparkly Soul headbands look AMAZING while being functional.”
“So my new obsession are the no slip headbands from Sparkly Soul…Sparkly Soul headbands are GREAT. They come in a thick and thin width and have a velvet back so they don’t move. And I’m telling you, these bad boys stay in place. I wear them… well all the time. I have a pink one (because see, I do dabble in the girl stuff) and silver. They are awesome.” http://cbkingery.blogspot.com/2012/01/sparkly-sparkle.html
“You may notice that I’m wearing my super cute non-slip Sparkly Soul headband again. I’ve been rocking my headbands everywhere over the past couple weeks, but I’m especially loving them at the gym. These things do not slip off, no matter what!” http://www.bexlife.com/2012/01/work-it-out-wednesday-yoga-block-tutorial-with-ali-sparkly-soul-giveaway/
“Imagine my surprise when I tested them out and they didn’t move. NOT ONE DARN CENTIMETER. They made it through a 24 mile long run with out bothering me once. This is truly a miracle. I’m VERY critical of running gear….The difference between these bands and the other bands I’ve tried is that they are no-slip all the way around. There is no elastic part at the bottom back. I honestly was not sure how to convey how much I LOVE these bands. I love these bands so much so that I now have them in EVERY SINGLE COLOR. Yep. Every color. Every running outfit could use a little sparkle. When I feel like I look good, I run better. When I run better, I run faster. When I run faster, I think I’m fast. When I think I’m fast, I run faster. When I run faster I PR. I’ll be rocking the sparkle at an upcoming marathon!!!”
“I have a teeny little peanut head. Up until now, this has meant that no headband, even “non slip” ones, fit me properly.”
“I have tried so many headbands that just don’t stay in place, and I’ve resorted to using lots of barrettes and hats on runs to keep my hair out of my face…The headbands are well constructed and have a velvety non-slip surface on the underside. In addition, the sparkles are all around the outside of the band. I’ve worn mine to group workouts and have gotten so many compliments from friends.”
“Something new that I love is Sparkly Soul headbands. I love them so much I bought one for Mrs. Obi-wan and we sported ours at the gym together while I was in Colorado over break. We looked fabulous, if I do say so myself, and they seriously don’t move.”
