Fly Away Tamer Headband
Stick to the bang buster headband.
Does not even stay on my head when I put it on and just stand there motionless in my bedroom. It is not very tight or stretchy at all, and the "grippy" side is weak. Maybe I have a tiny head, or maybe it only works with really coarse hair to keep it in place. It is completely unusable to me not only for workouts, but also for just lounging. The bang buster headbands are a staple of my gym/activity/sport wardrobe and I was hoping this would be just as awesome at keeping my bangs outta my face, but no. It does look cuter since it's not as wide (which is why I bought it), but who cares if it just slides off 3 seconds later.

does not stay on my head
this headband is cute but it will not stay on my head in a workout/yoga class which is extremely annoying. I'm not sure why it does this, but I will not buy another one nor would I recommend it to a friend. I will continue to use just for looks when I'm out and about but I am extremely disappointed with the functionality.

such a waste of money
I bought this item on a whim to keep my hair out of my face while snowboarding. All I can say is, it is a waste of money! The first time I wore it sort of stayed on my rather average sized head. The second time I wore it, I spent my entire turbo kick class adjusting it because it was slipping off. I will never purchase another lulu headband ever!!

I originally bought this headband because it was the only headband that I could find that actually stayed on my head. But about 2 years later, I have found that the annoying flair-ups of my hair just get worse from the headband. This is because the plastic part on the inside of the headband stretches the hairs and cause them to become cut and frail. So I would not recommend this headband though of course, they are the new style and they are cute.

Pretty good... but there is an issue.
When I first purchased this headband, it wasn't really intended for workouts. Out of a weird shopping impulse, I purchased two in different colors. I ended up using them when I went for a jog. I liked them so much at first, but they began to stretch. This caused them to slip off of my head and fall to the ground. Unfortunately, I lost one of them while running and never found it. $12 gone... I hope that they can add more rubber lines to keep them in place a bit better. If not, I can't see myself purchasing another.

I've had this headband for over a week now. I bought it for sports. I wore it to my soccer game and to an exercise class. Oh, and gym class if you'd count that. It stays very well and keeps my hair out of my face. I have bangs and they kept falling out of my ponytail and into my face. But this headband works. I checked the reviews before I purchased this and was surprised to see how negative they were. Well, kind of. I've seen many girls walking around with headbands sliding of their heads. I guess its my hair type. I have long and very thick hair. It gave me a slight headache at first. Overall, I would say that this product is pretty good.

Doesn't stay put = /
I bought this yesterday at the local showroom at the sales associates suggestion because I have yet to find a silicone headband that stays in place during any type of yoga class whether its a rocket, vinyasa flow or a healing/restorative class.
I was initially inclined to get the wide band without the silicone due to my problems with the similar headbands from other brands not staying put. So at the associates recommendation, I decided I would give it a try after trying the LuLu wunder unders and loving them dearly, the headband had to be just as awesome!
Not even 5 minutes into a healing class this morning with little to no exertion the band was already slipping past my ears and onto the floor. I do not have fine hair and this really should not be happening upon a first time use.
I am really disappointed after spending the $12 for a headband that is definitely not effective in keeping my hair back and allowing me to practice through a whole class without having to come out of a pose to adjust it to keep the sweat out of my eyes.
I am hoping that I can at least try and get some type of exchange for it through the site for the wide headband without the silicone and hopefully have some better results.

falls off my head!
This headband is so pretty and sleek and I couldn't resist when lulu came for a trunk show in my town. Most headbands don't really stay on my head but I was hoping this one would stay put with the clear sticky things on the inside. But after wearing it a few times it falls off my head constantly just like every other headband. I don't know if it stretched or it's just my head shape or my hair but it will not stay on my head. I would recommend this if you are a headband person and headbands do stay on your head because this looks so good on.

Im absolutely in love with this headband. I read other reviews online and hesitated before i bought this product, but when i saw one on sale at a Lulu store i had to try it. It fits perfectly, i have thick straight hair, and doesn't move at all during a workout. I wear it running and can run for miles, till my hair tie starts to slip but the headband stays perfectly in place. Lulu should start selling hair ties as well! Great product and looks great, I'm going to purchase many more.

Ok, but not good for running.
I don't know why but this doesn't stay on my head when running; it slips off. This headband is better for more "stationary" activities like the elliptical and spinning. I much prefer the Skinniest Satin Pirouette, which stays put while running and is adjustable.
