Love 'Heads Up Bands'...the Review

Heads Up Bands Review by I Run Long /

Okay, friends, you are going to LOVE Heads Up Bands ( that I have been anxious to share with you!!!  I would like to thank Heads Up Bands for the beautiful products they make! I had seen them comment on my page and decided to check their page and saw some really cute headbands! After chatting with the owner, she asked me to go to her website and pick a headband.  That was fun and hard at the same time! The selections are amazing, which made it VERY hard for me to choose. I received my first products from Heads Up bands a couple of weeks and let me tell you, the shipping was super fast! It came on a day I least expected them to and I was eager to open the package! When I opened the package, I was impressed with how nice the headbands looked and felt…quality fabric and nothing cheap looking about it! I have some that are skinny and wide and I love how both sizes fit. These headbands are well made and no fraying or loose threads. The under side is a velvety fabric which I love. It is what helps keep the headband on your head, I feel. I loved the cute Heads Up Bands logo stitched on the inside of headband…very cute! I was really surprised to received more than one headband-WOOT WOOT!! It was like Christmas!!! My college age daughter was standing there watching me with excitement as I opened the pack of headbands up! When I did and pulled out the headbands, we both said, “Ooh!” I knew I was going to hide my headbands from my girls or I’d never see them-ha! ha! The headbands were in product packaging and with care instructions. After oohing and awing over the product, I then slipped one on my head, took a few selfies and recruited my son to snap a few photos to show you!  I loved how the headband fit on my head and couldn’t wait to go for a run in them to try them out.
(Thanks to my daughter for modeling the headbands for me in the collage)

 In the last two weeks, I’ve gone on a few runs.  My longest run last week was 7 miles so that would be a pretty good test.  The headbands REALLY did stay on my head and the elastic band in the back did not slide up the back of my head like poor made headbands I’ve purchased in the past have. They are really comfortable to wear and you’ll hardly notice you’re wearing it and just for fun, one night I decided to wear my headband. Okay, I did not want to take it off and just for kicks was curious how well it stay on. I woke up the next morning with my headband still on my head and pretty much in the same place it was the night before, so you can imagine how well they will stay on during your activity during the day! Impressed!  On my longest run, I really did work up a sweat and my hair got really sweaty so the headband did absorb it pretty good, but stayed on my head just fine. The sweat made it loosen just slightly, normal, so no big deal! I decided to wash it so I folded the headband in half and put some mild soap and water on it and gently hand washed it. Keeping it flat, I ran it under the water and laid it on a towel, folding part of the towel over and pressing the water out of it. I let it lay flat to dry and the next day I put it on. It wasn’t stretched out at all and felt like the first day I tried it on! I was so impressed and I went online and ordered my girls their own headband and one for my youngest to sport at her World Series Softball games coming up next week…a sparkly red headband for her to match her jersey.  Heads Up Bands are perfect for not only running in, but for any sport, special occasions or just for everyday!

The headband designs shown on this blog are;
 Zig Zag (black & personal favorite so far)
1 inch gun metal glitter (seen on my head while holding the other bands)
Regal Tapestry Green
Serendipity Green (with the circles)

Heads Up bands can be worn by all ages.  I'm 42 and love the selections available :)

I am so in love with these headbands and I think you will too. The emails back and forth with the owner have been pleasant and I personally felt a friendship connection with them.  They responded to all of my emails promptly which I felt was impressive as well. So, excellent products, fast shipping, quick response to emails and very helpful about future custom orders. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, HEADS UP BANDS!!!
