Fit moms and their active daughter's have a stylish solution to the eternal question: How do I get my hair out of my face. Bani Bands not only stay put and keep the hair out of your eyes and pulled back neatly--they also look fantastic.
We discovered them this year at a fashion accessory event. Renee Kreig, the founder, slipped two sparkly headbands into my media kit. And I thought nothing of them until a few weeks later when my daughter spotted them and fell in love with the pink sequins ($12). Sigh--it's a pinkalicious world I live in. It just happened to be Super Soccer Stars day. We slipped the band on her head and off she went. When I picked her up from afterschool soccer at 4:15pm the headband still looked awesome as did her hair. Unbelievable.
Each headband has an easily adjustable band--it'll fit mom or a 2 year old (we tried both). Velvet sewn on the underside keeps them put on your head. They work so well, Renee has a patent pending on them. As for our sporty family, we are now hooked. For any little girl that plays, basketball, soccer, volleyball, cheers, does gymnastics, etc. these are pure gold. Yes, you'll find a pattern you love--there are so many to pick from. And we are thrilled to support this small business that is truly making a product moms can rely on.
We love that they offer team pricing on orders of ten or more. Check out the collection at http://www.verticalathletics.com/category_s/29.htm
