Chickbands: Review + Giveaway

A little while ago, I was lucky enough to win Lil Runner's Chickband giveaway. I am a headband junkie and love adding to my collection with the latest styles. They are essential to my workout gear to keep my crazy hair under control - and let's face it, they are a staple in my everyday wardrobe too!




Chickband sent me two head bands of my choosing: the "CandyLand Thin" and "Cute as a Cupcake Thick".





There are a ton of styles and patterns to choose from, whether you are looking for something funky-fresh, stylish & chic or just plain silly! You will have no trouble finding just the right headband to finish off your look.



Most importantly, they are made to be cute, comfortable and durable! The elastic at the back allows for a flexible fit and the velvet strip underneath the decorative ribbon ensures that it will stay put. Seriously, these headbands do not budge.






I put my cupcake band to the ultimate test by wearing it for my recent marathon. It held steady and kept my hair off my face for the entire 3 hours, 34 minutes and 54 seconds. :)

I have yet to find a headband tt stays put on my head. I'm not sure why, but they NEVER work for me. I go with a hat or a braid instead ;)

I like the Halloween headband with the spiderwebs on yellow. If I wear my yellow Armstrong shirt that would have gone perfectly.
