FITBIE – June 19, 2012
As I picked up race materials for a recent 10-K, something shiny caught my eye—literally. The glittery distraction turned out to be Sparkly Soul headbands, which aren’t just flashy looking; they were designed by a marathoner to secure hair during exercise.
In the past I’ve tried to contain my thick mop of hair using other sports headbands without much luck, but this dazzling accessory did the trick. My purple headband didn’t budge through my entire run (not to mention it won me a ton of compliments). You can choose from two widths, 12 colors and purchase them for $15 (3/8″) or $17 (5/8″) a pop at sparklysoul.com.
