Review / Giveaway: Bolder Band Headbands




There I was, scrolling through my Facebook Newsfeed one day, frustratingly flicking my hair out of my eyes, when lo and behold I see an advertisement for a product called Bolder Band Headbands!

No joke! It was as if the gods of Facebook saw my frustration and said, "Hey, you need this."

I immediately contacted them via Facebook messaging and inquired about the product. I received an immediate response and within just a few days I became the proud owner of my very own Bolder Band.

Amy Crouse, founder and creator of Bolder Bands is a cross-fitting mother of three. She explains on her website how she was always so frustrated with elastic headbands that don't stay on while you work out! She set out to develop her own headband that would "stay put so you don't have to". I just love that motto!


My own frustration with most elastic headbands is that not only do they not stay put, but they also tend to give me terrible headaches. Looking at the Bolder Bands online, I could see that they looked very comfortable and that proved to be true!

I'm currently trying to grow out my hair from a regrettable "bangs incident", so my hair is always in my face if I don't pin it up somehow. I must admit, I am probably not the typical demographic for a product like this. Lately, the most exercise I get is taking my dog for a walk or playing at the park with my daughter. But I didn't let that stop me from giving this product a thorough testing.

Bolder Bands come in 4 sizes or can be custom ordered to size. I received the regular size which measures 21-22.5 inches. They are made from a soft, stretchy swimsuit like material that is folded over and securely stitched together with their logo.

I pulled my hair back into a short ponytail and slipped on my Bolder Band.

The trick with Bolder Bands is that you wear them on your forehead rather than back in your hair. They can stay folded for a narrow look or you can unfold them a bit to cover more area. I prefer the look of mine when it is slightly unfolded.

Here I am modeling it after just putting it on in the morning. It took a little fiddling around to get it to where I liked it, but I'm picky.

I wore my band for an entire day and didn't once feel uncomfortable or headachey.

I only removed it to readjust a few times through out the day and that was mostly because I kept setting my sunglasses on it.


Here is my daughter helping me model the band after a day of shopping at the Farmers Market and playing at the park.


Bolder Bands are machine washable, air dry-able, can be custom ordered or personalized and come in a huge array of colors and patterns. They even make "Bro Bands" for Men! My Bolder Band is the Blue Sorbet style and the retail price is an extremely reasonable $15.00. I think they are worth every penny! Shipping is also very reasonable at $3.79.

If you are interested in purchasing your very own Bolder Band, you can do so at their website.
Be sure to check them out on Facebook, too!



Bolder Bands provided me with a purple Bolder Band as well for me to share with one of our readers as a giveaway!  Whether you work out or not, this band is a stylish way to keep your hair neat.  Good luck everyone!

  21. I could have definitely used this in college when I had to get stitches in my forehead. For a couple weeks I became the bandana and hat queen, trying to find anything to hide the area until the stitches got taken out. This would have been perfect, lol.
