Fly Away Tamer Headband
It took 25 years to find a headband that works!
I have never been able to find a headband that stays put. They always slip off. Spent 25 years, and who knows how much money wasted, trying this and that. Turns out I have a small head (and thin, straight hair makes it even more difficult). Discovered these last summer - bought two. THEY STAY PUT, between the size, material and little sticky dots. (And keep all those pesky little short hairs off my sticky face, in 100+ degrees.) Perfect! Went back this summer to buy more and found that the logo is no longer discreetly tucked behind the ear but now emblazoned atop the head, like a damned head light! I will NOT wear a logo on the top of my head, like some zombie. The main reason why I am reviewing this product is to ask that you PLEASE reconsider your choice of the new logo location because you just lost my money for future purchases, despite how well it works for me!

Love, love, love these!!
I first ordered 2 of these headbands in basic black and gray for my workouts. They stay in place throughout running, spinning, and walking, and they really do keep my flyaways in check! I went ahead and ordered 2 more in fun patterns so I can wear them out and about. They are a high-quality, durable material. I have washed all 4 repeatedly (on gentle cycle, air-dry), and they bounce right back into place. I am definitely ordering more. Please continue to make more colors and patterns!

Yes, this headband is pricey, but I have never regretted my purchase, or any lululemon purchase for that matter! This headband is AMAZING and I think it's totally worth the $12. The quality is fantastic, the grips make it not fall out of my hair on a run and it tames fly a ways just as the name claims. Perfect for track, cross country, yoga, and just going on a run! I own this in white, black, and grey and I plan on getting more in the future!

Bobby Pins Needed
These headbands are super cute but I always have to put bobby pins on either side to secure the headband. Kind of a pain but I can deal.

Super cute, a little pricey
It all started when my lacrosse teammates started wearing these headbands, and I was curious about what they were. I asked one of my friends and she told me about lulu and (hehe) how overpriced it was, but she didn't care since she loved this brand so much. When I got home, I looked lululemon up on the internet and found these headbands. I bought a swiftly and a fly away tamer. They both serve different purposes. The fly away tamer is super comfortable and not so tight that it gives me headaches, and perfect for casual days of errands or school. Not so much for sports, though since it can slip to the back of my head sometimes, but never to a point where the whole headband falls off, which is good. The swiftly, however, is perfect for sports practices and running/gyms because it's tighter and stays on the front of my head. Sometimes under armour and nike headbands can cause minor headaches, so lulu remains the best. I love these headbands so much, I wear them under my ski helmet, during sports team practices, as well as to school. I get many compliments from them and from the adorable tote bag that comes with it. The only complaint I have is that lulu should offer more colors at a time, instead of maybe two or three patterned colors and black/white every month or so, and to lower the price to maybe $10.00 and then all will be well and perfect. Thanks, lululemon!

I love lulu lemon. I haven't had any issues with their products before this. I bought a headband about three days ago and went on a run with it. It completely fell off halfway through the run ! I have an average size head and thick hair, which I would have expected to help hold it on. I love the patterns and color but if the headband quality is like this, I will have to stop buying lulu

Can't run in this
I was extremely excited to receive this headband once I ordered it. One of my friends recommended it to me so on decided to try it out. I've never ordered something from Lululemon before that So I was super excited and it came in a nice cute little package with an adorable reusable bag. When I tried on the headband it stay but when I went on a run with the headband it slipped right back. It wasn't a very good running headband but it makes a decent to and from headband if that's what your looking for. If your a runner DO NOT buy it's a complete waste of money and I defidentaly prefer Under Armour for running headbands. I hope this helps you decide if you won u 's like to buy this headband or not.

Amazing... for a certain type of hair
This product is my go to headband! The swiftly headband just doesn't stay with all my thick, tons of flyways, and (depending on the weather) frizzy hair! It does slip off after my run, or my dance class but it holds back the fly aways perfect to make my ponytail even prettier... I suggest thin hair people get the swiftly, thicker hair should get this one!

Got it today and can't take it off. The rubber grips on inside are amazing and it is less constricting than other wider headbands I have from lulu. Excellent job! Wish there was one in green camo, I would buy even without sale.
Thank you !

straight up addicted
i'm pretty confused by the negative reviews. i love these overpriced little things. i have unruly, naturally curly hair that loves to form sweaty ringlets around my hairline when i workout. problem solved. the fly away tamer headbands soak up the sweat during my soulcycle classes and on my runs. not once have they ever fallen down onto my face or slipped back on top of my head. for people who have issues with them staying in place, i would say to wear them more like a "sweatband" and less like a "headband", with part of the material covering the top of your forehead. i hand wash mine after use and line dry flat. after dozens of washes i am pleased that they have held their shape and elasticity. my only complaint is that i wish they were made with the silver thread. they dry slowly and can start to smell.
