Bondi Band Review + Giveaway: Nonslip Athletic Headbands

Hi friends!

I’ve got a review and giveaway for you today, thanks to my partnership with Fit Approach.

Bondi Band Review and Giveaway

Bondi Band recently reached out to a few of us Sweat Pink ambassadors, and sent us a sampling of their fantastic wicking headbands to review and giveaway!

I’ve been a big fan of Bondi Band for a while now, and always get several funny comments whenever I race in my headband that says, “Suck it up, Cupcake!” If you think it’s not motivating, then I don’t know what is!

I first came across these headbands at the Little Rock Marathon Expo in March 2013, and since then have been in a firm believer in their product. They’re so ridiculously simple, lightweight, nonslip, wicking, and comfortable. I just love them, so when I had the opportunity to review and test out a few, I jumped at the chance!

Fun fact: they’re made in the U.S.A. and 10% of all profits are donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Research Institute in Massachusetts!

I received three to review and test out, and all three have received my stamp of approval. How cute are these?

Bondi Bands are stretchy, and will fit practically every head size. Guys- there are also plenty of unisex styles, and styles geared toward dudes, so don’t feel left out.

Since they are moisture wicking, they are perfect for COLD or HOT. Being able to keep not just my hair, but sweat out of my eyes when I run is a huge plus!

 I’m not 100% sure if they’re supposed to go over your ears or behind, as I’ve seen both. However, I feel like I look weird with it behind my ears, so for now, my vote is over. But that’s just me! I think if I was wearing it casually, like with my hair down, it would look cuter behind my ears.

    I’m always looking for good headbands that actually stay on when I work out to hold my hair back. I have fallen in love with BIC bands, and now I can’t work out without them. I have never had one that thick, but I would love to try it to see how I like it. If I won I would pick the one that says Fit and Fabulous!

    I cruised through their selection and would love the “love to tri” headband! What a great saying as I start getting into triathlons.

    I would LOVE the “suck it up, buttercup” one! That’s kind of become my mantra over many years of soccer and running and often have to catch myself so that I don’t say it to people who don’t get that philosophy (like my children!). 🙂

    I love the black and white stripe one (tough decision as I was paging through all the options on their site!). I could wear it with literally ANY of my workout clothes!

    They are SO cute and I love that they are a wider band!

    I’ve wanted to try Bondi Bands for a long time. I’ve been wishing for something to keep sweat out of my eyes, too (I hate hats), so maybe this would be a happy medium. I like the “Suck it up, buttercup” one. I have a shirt that says that, too… maybe I should wear them together. 🙂

    I would love the “Suck it up, buttercup!” as that is what my husband always tells me when I complain about anything! I have a hard time finding headbands that will stay on my little head, so this has been on my list of things to try!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hwrd to geet that “perfect balance”
    between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me
    on Chrome. Superb Blog!
