There is nothing more annoying than trying to get your sweat on and having your hair get all in your face. Ick! To keep your focus on your workout (and off your frizz), you’ll need a stretchy headband that's comfortable, stays in place, and (of course) looks stylish. And to help you find the perfect hair-taming accessory for your next athletic activity, we asked three of the biggest gym
rats lovers on staff to try headbands from sporty-chic brand Under Armour. Each staffer has her own regular routine that ranges from yoga to spinning to boot camp—here’s how these headbands withstood the ultimate sweat test!
Staffer: Deena Bahri
Workout of Choice: Yoga
Headband: Under Armour Braided Mini Headband
“I like that this headband is bright and that the braided design is unusual. Each strand has a no-slip strip, which keeps it in place throughout an entire yoga class. It was a little tight the first couple of times I wore it, but now it fits perfectly to my head.”
Staffer: Jamie Garfinkle
Workout of Choice: Spinning
Headband: Under Armour Gotta Have it Headband
“I get really hot while spinning and this thick band is fantastic at wicking away sweat. It’s become my go-to because it’s wide enough to keep all of my hair in place and it never falls off thanks to the two clear rubber strips on the inside.”
“This headband held on through about a hundred jump squats and countless all-out sprints because of the two anti-slip grips. I may not have looked good when it was all over, but my ponytail did. In fact, I love this soft and comfortable headband so much, I’m going to get a second one to use when I wash my face at night.”
