I got to choose my favorite GlitzBandz for the review. I chose "sparkle polka dot black" which is 7/8" wide. GlitzBandz is a no-slip headband that comes in 19" (fits most youth) or 20" (fits most adults). There are tons of colors and designs to choose from between the GlitzBandz website and the GlitzBandz Facebook page. Emily also takes special orders if you need a different size or want a design she doesn't yet have. I received my GlitzBandz 2 days later, just in time for a 5k where I was trying to set a new PR.

This is my first product review. I've read lots of reviews on running blogs and thought, "Do they really like that product or are they just being nice because it was given to them?" Here's my answer to "Does she really like GlitzBandz, or is she just being nice because it was given to her?"
|I now own FIVE GlitzBandz.. black sparkle dot, hot pink glitter, navy, purple floral, and peacock!|
After wearing the black sparkle dot GlitzBandz that one day, I ordered 3 more! Why 3? Because each GlitzBandz is a very reasonable $10, but when you buy 2, the 3rd is only $5! I was also pleased that shipping was only a couple dollars. I'm an ER nurse and can't/don't want my hair in my face (you don't even want to know what I do in a day's work, but let's just say I don't want my hair in it!). We have to wear navy at one job, so I thought I'd go pretty neutral in design/color. The GlitzBandz stays in place for my entire 12 hour shift, and trust me, if I barely have time to go to the bathroom, I don't have time to fix my hair at work. On a side note, if you want to look younger, you might try GlitzBandz. I had 2 patients ask my age/if I was still in nursing school! It was a lucky week for me, because I donated to my friend who is doing Team in Training and won her drawing for... a GlitzBandz! That's how I got the peacock print. I wore that one on my 17 miler last weekend.
