Do The Twist Headband
Good and Bad
I was super hesitant to get this headband for $22 but finally gave in because I thought it was super cute and unique. Here are my thoughts on it overall:
Pros: It really is a super cute headband. I love the mix of the colors and would have to say it is definitely one of the more flattering headbands I own. Between the colors and the unique twist- I LOVE the look of it! I think it fit great. Not too big and not too tight. I actually liked the feel of the fabric- but I think the fabric is what leads to the cons...
Cons: It is too slippery. It doesn't stay in place very well- especially if you look up- it will start to slide back. I was able to wear it during my hour kickbox class... but I probably had to adjust it to keep it in place about 10 times which was annoying.
Overall... It is a super cute headband but not worth the $22 price tag as a workout headband. I would recommend it to a friend only if it went on markdown. I don't see how it would stay in place unless you are holding completely still. I'm considering trying to find a way to rig it by attaching a mini comb to the inside to hold it in place. ?

Pop of fun
I was hesitant ordering this headband for $22. I have a large head and some past headbands (final sale) have given me a headache. This piece is amazing. I wouldn't wear it to yoga, but for out and about its perfect. There are no grip strips to hold it in place, but it hasn't shifted on me yet. I do have a larger than normal head, so it may run big on most people.

Gorgeous Color and Detail
I disagree with reviewers here--I find this headband to be excellent. I sweat a lot and have lots of layers around my face, and this headband kept my hair out of my eyes very well. The swim material did have a funny smell to it, but the twist stayed put and the fit was excellent.
This stays on my head FAR better than the Flyaway Tamer. It fit well, and the twisted double-band was secure all the way around. I wore it on a 4-mile run and didn't have to adjust it at all. The fresh teal color is gorgeous!

Tried it on and was tight and the material way too slippery - was scared it was going to pop off my head standing still, can't imagine wearing it doing any form of activity. Do not recommend...

Swim Material, Funny Smell
I really didn't like it was all swim material, very rough feeling. Also had a funny rubber-chemical smell to it that won't go away. The knot part also had a tendency to separate so it looked like a double headband instead of one cohesive part. All in all, I paid for a headband that I'm not able to use and that stinks up my headband container.

This head band is definitely a bit slippery but it fits well and it's a good size. The colors are great! It might be a bit better if there were rubber grips on the inside though.

Terrible... won't stay on my head - it's made from the same material as the swim suits and it just slides right off my head. such a disappointment. And, not returnable.
