Skinny Satin Pirouette
It's not a bra strap guys...
Love the headband, so pretty. Adjustable, fits snug with the help of the silicone grip.
Did anyone else get asked if it was a bra strap?
Annoying people: "Hey, is that a bra strap on your head?"
Me: "Yea, I rock bra straps on my head all the time!" and "OMG, how did that get there?"

It's not the headband, It's me!
I love the look and theory of these headbands, but they always slip and pop off the back. I thought the problem was the rubber wasn't tacky enough, however upon further investigation I realized that my thin glossy hair was the issue. For someone like myself, freshly washed hair is too slick to grip onto. I spay my hair with either a firm hold hairspray or sea salt spray and toussel before wearing and it stays put all day! Just like that, problem solved!

Perfect low-key headband..I forget I'm wearing it!
I'm on mat leave (no time to do my hair) and I'm growing my bangs out. Double-whammy! I needed a headband I could throw on and forget about while chasing my son around. My headband arrived this morning and I put it on and instantly forgot about it. Which means its amazing. No adjusting, tugging, pulling etc. I love that its simple and low-key, no giant logos screaming at you.
For those of you that have worn this running and complain about it slipping...read the description! I don't think any headband exists that won't slip while running.

Love this headband! It started off as me wearing it when I ran but has turned into me wearing it almost every day. It never slips and holds back the flyaways. It seems a bit expensive for a headband but I have definitely worn it enough to justify the price. my only critique is I wish it came in more colors! I would love to own a few more in aqua, hot pink or blue!

I was speculative, but this actually worked!
I've tried about five million headbands and most of them slip off when I wear a pony tail. This one stayed on for five sweaty miles while bouncing away on my run... with a pony tail. I'm impressed! It may have slipped a bit, but still looked good after the run. I've worn it with my hair down and it's really cute that way too. I have thickish, curly hair that's a bit slippery. This headband was very impressive!

I am in love with this product....:)
I love lululemon! My favorite brand. I went to the Lululemon outlet yesterday just to get this headband. My friend has one, and i tried it on it sticks so easily! I have big thick curly hair, and it stays in one spot PERFECTLY! I love it! I dont need to adjust it! I would defiantly buy this product again!

Does NOT stay in place!
I loved when I first got this headband as it was so cute! It holds a bit better if my hair is down and I am wearing it out and about as my hair holds it in the place. This is not a headband for the gym because as soon as my hair is in a ponytail its constantly slipping back. I have tried everything from loosening it so its not super tight and tightening it right up and it will NOT stay in place. I will not buy another one of these. Sorry Lulu!

No slip headband??
I have never purchased a headband from lulu before. I teach spin and was using pre-wrap to keep my stray hairs back while I instruct. I decided to get a couple of these headbands and give them a try. I needed something thing because I sweat a lot and didn't want one of the thicker material ones to make my head hotter or be soaked in sweat while teaching. Well, it was a waste of money. The first time I wore it, it slid off my head while teaching and was quite distracting. I didn't want to disrupt my class to fix my hair, so wound up finishing the ride with it around my neck like a necklace.... yeah, not a good look and my stray fly away hair was in my face. I actually haven't tried it again for spin bc if it falls off again I can't fix it. I HAVE tried it running several times and have to wear it so tight that I feel like it will pop off at any moment, so I wind up focusing on that while I run, so that I don't lose it if it does. Certainly wish I didn't waste my money on two of them, especially since you can't return them... I'm going back to pre-wrap.

A Headband That Works
I have never been a headband girl. They have never stayed on my head, and they've never really looked right. This is the first headband that I am able to wear that makes me feel flirty and feminine and that doesn't move.
That said, it does have some limitations. I tried to wear it for a couple workouts. I sweat buckets. It lasted me through a 20-minute elliptical session but slid off about 8 minutes into a treadmill workout. It lasted me about 6.5 miles on a run in 40-degree weather before the sweat got the best of it. So, for sweatier runs or workouts, I stick to my Flyaway Tamers.
I noticed no new colors have come out in the recent weeks. I do hope it doesn't get discontinued!

meh... it was OK
I had heard great things about the lulu headbands, so I went in and bought 2. This was just... OK. It is very pretty, but in terms of function no different from something I could buy at the drugstore.
Too top it off, I was wearing it at the gym today and it broke! I have to wear the headband on the tightest notch (otherwise its like I have nothing on at all), and now that notch has ripped.
$14 down the drain and all sales final. Let's just say, I probably won't be replacing it.
