Active Bands Review & Giveaway!

I love headbands.  I love practical headbands that keep my out-of-control hair in place when I'm running.  I love stylish headbands that let me pretend I have any sort of ability to accessorize even if my hair's in a wet ponytail.  What do I love even more than those things?  HEADBANDS THAT DO BOTH!  Enter Active Bands...
These headbands ROCK.  Not only are they SO CUTE, but they actually stay in your hair without slipping! From the Active Bands website:


 Our mission is to provide you with a quality product that will provide style, comfort, and best of all NO-SLIP!  Every woman should feel the freedom that comes from working out without having those irritating little hairs in your face!!
Our Headbands are hand-crafted by individuals who care about our customer's style and the quality of the product.  We would like you to know that each Active Headband you receive from us contains a little love, and hope that you can enjoy a more comfortable, NO-SLIP work out.  


Sing it, Active Bands.  Active Bands was KIND enough to send me two headbands to try out and review.  Let me tell you, it took me about an hour to decide which two bands I wanted to try because they were all so darn cute!  I tried this black glitter band on one of my runs last week:
Gosh I look so serious in that picture...most likely I was just exhausted though, as I was still in my classroom, getting ready to go run on the way home. :)  First, I have never had ANY headband that is as glamorous as this one, much less a running band!  It is so pretty and sparkley, but most importantly it did not slide around ONE BIT on my head.  AMAZING.  The trick is that they have velvety material on the back of the ribbon band which really grips your hair.  They are also nice and tight, but not at all uncomfortable.  (No headaches with these babies!)  I have tried my active bands on a few more runs with the same result, and I have to tell you that I have also been wearing these headbands when I'm not working out...I've even been wearing them to school!
When I'm feeling lazy and just want to put my hair up, putting on one of these cute headbands makes me feel like I actually tried to do something nice with my hair, even if it's still mostly wet!  I've gotten compliments from friends and coworkers, and I'm happy to report that they hold my hair through a full day of school with no adjustments necessary.  That's almost as impressive as them staying in place while running!  Have I convinced you yet that you NEED an active band?  Well, lucky for you Active Bands has generously let me host a giveaway to share these fabulous headbands with my wonderful readers!

TWO readers will each receive a $25 gift card to the Active Bands site!  I promise you, not only will you adore wearing the headbands, but you will have a blast picking out which prints and colors to choose!

  12. And as for which ones I'd get... hmmm I do love too many to choose. Probably a solid one in either purple or green or royal blue or turquoise cause they go with my hair. I also like the "fun floral" one, and the brown with blue and brown with green dotted ones.
