Diva Bands Review & Giveaway

I was recently contacted by Diva Bands (HERE) to test out their stylish, non-slip headbands during my workouts.   With "DIVA" in the brand name, this Diva surely had to test them out.

Diva Bands are high performance, handmade, super cute workout headbands that keep your hair in place and out of your face while you’re running, playing sports or just running errands! Each of our workout headbands are made by hand by Macy Ross, a once stay at home mom who launched Diva Bands from her basement. Now Diva Bands workout headbands are sold in stores, shops, at events, in bookstores and online!

Diva Bands workout headbands are more than the usual hair accessories like hair clips or bobby pins. Diva Bands are stylish, super cute and handmade no slip headbands that keep your hair in place and out of your face. Bobby pins fall out and take forever to put in. Rubber bands slip and pull your hair. Diva Bands are comfortable and strong. Easy on, easy off.


A Diva and a Sewing Machine

One day, Macy Ross was jogging with her friends when she noticed they were wearing headbands that didn’t slip or move when they ran. Macy thought that was pretty cool because when she worked out, her headbands always came off and would never stay in place. She asked where the headbands came from and she was shocked to hear how much her friends paid for them. Macy, who is pretty good with a sewing machine, said, “I can make these headbands just as good, if not better.” It took some practice but she figured out how to make a nonslip headband. That Christmas, she made a bunch for her family and friends and they loved them. Her friends showed them to their friends and they loved them, too, and they began to ask Macy to make headbands in their favorite styles. That’s when Macy got the idea to start Diva Bands. 

She put $100 in a box so she’d always have money to buy ribbon. She sewed a whole lot and made a bunch of headbands. On weekends, she’d go to races and local athletic events and set up a table and sell her Diva Bands. As she sold headbands, she’d put that money in the box. Pretty soon, her $100 had grown in $500, then $1,000! After four months, she’d sold 1,600 headbands, and she’d made each one herself in her sewing room in her basement.


I really liked my headband and it actually did stay in place as suggested.  The inside was soft and non-slip on my forehead.  The elastic structuring in the back of the headband, also prevented the headband from slipping.  The colors are bright and vibrant; and the ribbons are gorgeous.  These headbands are great for active sessions and for dressing up your favorite casual outfit.  Great for moms, teens and young girls.


 

I really like how on the Diva Headbands' website, you cannot only shop the store by width of the headband - you can also shop by color!  What a great way to find something to go with that favorite race day outfit or race team color scheme.
