Bang Buster Headband *Reversible
The only one
This is the only headband I've ever worn in my life that stays on my head. I wear it running, to barre classes, to yoga, even to work (with scrubs). It's expensive but because there is nothing else as great as it, we will all continue to buy it...no?

Best Headband Ever
This headband did a great job of keeping my hair out of my face and not slipping. I like the wide top, but unlike other fabric headbands I've used, it isn't wide all the way around. I would buy one in every color if they weren't so expensive.

I have the groovy stripe multi white and plan on getting more. It does a great job of staying in place and doesn't hurt my head.

I am currently wearing the nimbus groovy stripe Bangbuster. I have worn it all day with a single adjustment. I have a very high forehead, and often headbands will slip back and fall off, but never my beloved Bangbuster. I have many others, and this colourway feels slightly snugger.
I scrunched it a bit so its not as wide and wore it to work all day.
I chose nimbus stripe because of black on the reverse. I would have gotten the groovy multi stripe in addition, but white on the reverse for that one was a no-go.

must-have headband, just needs better color combos
I own two of these and they are amazing in staying put, holding my hair back while preventing sweat dripping on my face. The luon is extremely comfortable, size fits my head just right without giving me headaches.
My main gripe (product designers please take note!) are the inane colour combinations for something claiming to be a reversible product. Half of the colours are paired with white on the reverse side, so if I wanted to buy more, odds are I'd have a duplicate white side. Almost all of the other colours are paired with a lighter version of the same colour such as Mellow Yellow & Burning Yellow (*yawn*). In a reversible product, true functionality happens only with colour combos that are quite different - the only colour that does this is the Power Purple & Aqua combo which I got for that exact reason.
Another reason I feel these isn't truly a reversible product - I picked up the latest Groovy Stripe Multi recently, the reverse is white luon which is not opaque enough (see below). The multi coloured side shows through, so I can't really use the white side unless I want someone telling me I wore my headband inside out. So instead of $9 per colour, this ends up being a $18 colour. But it was too lovely to resist, I just feel the reverse side could have been done so much better.
To end on a positive side note - the LLL logo on these headbands are beautifully done :)

headband that actually stays in place!
Great headband! I needed one after finding all my baby hairs sticking to my face during hot yoga, and thanks to these reviews, I've found the best headband for my head ever. Like many Asians, the texture of my hair has made it impossible for any headband to stay in place on my head. This stays in place for hours. I wear it for my 7km runs, Muay Thai and hot yoga and it kept the hair and sweat away. I bought it in black which I can even wear casually and the yellow. Yes, it is expensive for what it is, and I'm not crazy about the colour section. I only use one side of the mellow yellow since the striped side is a bit ugly. I don't like that the non reversible black one is $18 while the white one is $14. I hope LL continues stocking this is new and great colours.

I got one about two months ago, and I used it many times throughout different workouts: yoga, kickboxing, zumba, etc. It always stayed in place, and it's super comfortable! Then I got a second one! I'm going to have to get the new colors--they look lovely! I'm always better off wearing one of these when I exercise cause it keeps my long hair looking put together!

I have thick Asian highlighted hair that I wear up in a ballerina bun on top of my head. I do alot of power vinyasa. No headband stays on my head but this one did! The headband stayed on during quick vinyasas, hopping into multiple handstands over and over again, and didn't budge during long held forward folds, arm balances, and headstand.
During my yoga practice, the sweat and face lotion waterfalling into my eyes in every forward bend and inversion was driving me nuts. With this headband, I didn't have to wipe my eyes or my face at all. Yay! No more sweat pouring down my face causing stinging eyes, no more pimples on the side of my face. Usually I use a thick handtowel to wipe the sweat out of my eyes and off my face. This headband absorbed all the sweat and still had room to absorb more. LOVE.

I love this for my sweaty yoga classes!! helps keep the sweat off of my face. I also love this when i am at the beach as a head wrap. now that these are reversible... i am so happy! and the reversible ones are much thicker so they are more absorbent.
