No matter how many hairpins you use or how precisely you put every single strand into your ponytail, hair always manages to slip out of your hair ties and clips. It also happens during the most inopportune times, too. Right in the middle of a down dog or your boxing class. Having frizzy hair get in your eyes and onto your sweat face is annoying, because it often sticks to your face. And if it doesn’t, that means you’ll have to keep pausing your workout to push the hair out of the way. You can break this irritating cycle by shelling out of a reliable headband.
Workout bands might seem like something out of an ’80s aerobic video, but they’re thinner and more moisture-wicking than they were then. Plus, they’re more stylish. The best workout headbands are made out of stretchy, flexible materials, so they can mold to your head comfortably. These wide band headbands will stay put, unlike the super thin options that always seem to slip and fly out of your hair. The headbands come in a variety of colors, so you’ll be able to find one that matches your athleisure sets. Check out our three picks below.

The stretchy headband will stay in place while you workout, but it isn’t so tight that’ll leave lines imprinted on your forehead after you’re done.
