    Smile Sweaty Bands

    I have three of these and love them! I have very fine short hair and they stay put. I wear them to Jazzercise and have no problem. I prefer the thin ones because my hair is so thin. Several of the instructors put their hair in a ponytail and then use the sweaty bands to keep any stragglers off their face.

    My Jazzercise location puts in orders on a regular basis. The price I paid for the ones I ordered through the class was significantly less than the website. You can find them in the stores listed; however, the selection tends to be very limited. I bought one from the running store and they only had about 4 to choose from.

    The backs of the bands are made of a velvet material which keeps them from slipping. I have one with a white background that gets pretty grungy looking but I just throw it in the washer.

    Oh thanks for this thread. I apparently have a Fleet Feet right around the corner so I'm going to go check them out tomorrow!

    I just bought one for my daughter for soccer. She wears her hair in
    a ponytail and uses the sweaty band to keep the wispies off her face.
    The sweaty band has been AWESOME!!! It doesn't slip or fall off!
    This thing is great!!!!

    I just got one yesterday! Haven't tried it yet, I got a thin one and will wear it during stroller class. I wear my hair up in a pony tail, but have wispies (or my DH likes to call them crazy cat whiskers) sticking out all over the place. I hope it works and doesn't slingshot off of my head.

    I bought several of thse (between 2 orders) when this thread first started. I don't have any stores that sell them near me, so ordering was my only option. I received the orders in 3 days (they are in Ohio I am in AZ). As a pp mentioned there is a velvet type backing that helps keep the band from slipping. I am also guessing that part of the design itself helps (feels tighter on top). These are nothing like the goody non slip ones. Anyway, I have been impressed with how well they have stayed. The thinner (1 inch) ones I have slept in and they have stayed on all night (didn't have the same results with the thicker ones). I have bought several of the mystery bag ones for $7 (minus whatever discount I find), and they have all been cute too.

    Hmmm, well, I used mine today for stroller class. It is really cute and for the most part it stayed on for me, but it still started slipping, so I had to re-do it after 1 hr of class. I wore my hair in a ponytail and was using it to keep the hair out of my face. I think they are cute, but waaaay overpriced. I looked at it, and if you are handy with your sewing machine, you could TOTALLY make these. It is basically whatever ribbon you like, backed with velvet ribbon. Then about 3-4 inches of regular black elastic. It is the best, "non-slip" hairband I have found so far, but still not 100% non-slip for my situation.
