Workout headbands. They're all the rage. Personally I have not been a huge fan of these in the past, mostly because of an irrational and unconfirmed fear that I am balding. I can't see it in the mirror or in photos, but sometimes I feel like the wind is creeping up a little to high on the side of my temples.... I digress. Here's a list of really cute workout headbands.

LOVE sparkly soul for staying on my head but I feel a bit cheesy in them sometimes (maybe bec I own the same pink glitter headband as my 6yo niece?  that says more abt me than the product, probs) - so sweaty bands are another great, less 'jazz hands-like' option.

I looked into sweaty bands, but their website was a frustrating labyrinth and I gave up. Good to know you like them though!!

UES_NYC 10/28/2012

you can get them at jack rabbit and rei, i think.  but yea from what i remember the site is a hot mess.

I am usually sweating before I even get on my bike.  I can’t care about how things look, I have to keep the hair and sweat off my face.  Lululemon Bang Buster is serious business! And it looks good.  Thanks  EHeartssweat for the intro and my first (and third) Bang Buster!
