Chickbands review and GIVEAWAY!

All sorts of headbands have been coming my way and I kinda love it, not going to lie.  Before I share the amazingness of Chickbands with you, let’s reveal the Sparkly Soul winner, shall we?

Congrats, Heather!  E-mail me at theathletarian [at] gmail [dot] com with your address so I can get your two bands out to you asap!


Now you all have another opportunity to win some pretty amazing headbands to tame those sweaty hair horns of yours.  I was contacted by Kara from Chickbands a couple of weeks ago who asked me if I would be interested in reviewing her headbands.  Kara (like most of us) is a crazy runner who once suffered from burning eyeballs from all of the sweat dripping on her face during her runs.  She was on a mission to find the perfect headband…and then ended up creating it herself.  Pretty awesome, no?

She started making them for her kids, friends, and all the running moms in her community.  She now has an Etsy shop where she sells a HUGE variety of bands to suit all kinds of tastes and personalities.  Since I am obsessed with sparkles, I chose a couple of sparkly bands that really appealed to me – one in teal and the other in black.  The teal one matches a pair of Lululemon shorts I recently bought (I envision an amazing race day outfit in my future) and the black one is perfect to wear ALL the time.

The majority of Chickbands are $7 with the exception of some novelty bands.  The price tag is super affordable in comparison to a lot of other bands which run for about $10-$15.  The sparkles are imbedded into the actual fabric so they won’t fall off (if I don’t want sweat in my eyes, why would I want sparkles in my eyes?!).  The bands are backed with velvet so they DO NOT slip.  Like, at all.  I don’t get “headband headache” from the bands either.  A lot of the time if I wear a headband for a whole day, I’ve got major head-throbbing going on.  Not with Chickbands.  Pretty amazing features right there.

Kara, being the awesome woman/runner/mother/headband-maker that she is wants to give away a Chickband (of your choice!) to 3 LUCKY READERS!  YES, 3!!!!!  Holy awesomeness, right?

    I went to the Etsy site and there are a couple that I would LOVE. Turquoise Sparkly looks awesome as does Super Skinny Pink Sparkly. I love pink and purple (even though I’m not a girly girl, what’s up with that?) I also loved the Holiday Dots. These are so cool, I would love one!

    I would order the the black or the silver sparkle Chickband. I think all of them are so cute so this was hard to choose!

    Those are adorable! I used to run with the Lululemon “non slip” bands… until I was running and one slipped right off the back of my head and I didn’t even feel it or notice it was gone ’til I got home… not impressed!!

    It’s sooooo hard to choose because all the headbands are so super cute, but I think I would go with either the super skinny black sparkly headband, or the thicker sparkly black like you got!

    I would either pick the black sparkly, silver sparkly, teal sparkly, or Chrissy the trainer band lol… they are all so cute! It would be hard to just pick one 😉
