As long as I can remember, I’ve always had long hair. Back when I was younger, it was all the way down to my waist. Now that I’m older, it’s gone through various lengths, some shoulder length, but mostly longer than that. I’m cheap and don’t like getting haircuts – haha! Once, I even had my 10 year old brother cut my hair! He was pro. One of the challenges with having longer hair is an easy and convenient way to pull it back so it doesn’t cover the face. You can braid it or pony tail it, but sometimes you want something that’s a little softer and more feminine.
Cover Your Hair, at www.coveryourhair.com has a huge array of hair coverings that are perfect for keeping your hair manageable yet stylish. They offer lots of different options, including headbands, bandanas, tie-backs, and pony holders to name a few. They were kind enough to send me the Gold Stripe Wide Headband to try out:
The Gold Stripe Wide Headband is an elastic headband with a generous amount of fabric to cover your hair. One thing I appreciated was that the elastic wasn’t too tight around my head, and also wasn’t too loose. Some elastic headbands are so tight that it makes my head hurt after awhile. This wasn’t the case with the Cover Your Hair headband. Another thing to note about elastic headbands is that sometimes, the elastic isn’t big enough, so it’s a struggle to get it onto your head without scratching your face or knocking off your glasses. The Cover Your Hair headband was just the right size to put on easily while still maintaining the right amount of tightness to stay on your head.
The Cover Your Hair headbands are also really versatile in terms of how you can wear it. It can cover most of your head (from front to about half way down the back of your head) or you can fold up the fabric and make it slimmer. Here are shots of me wearing both styles:
The actual headband seems quite well made to me. I checked out all of the seams and there weren’t any loose ends or threads. The seam where the elastic attaches to fabric seemed strong and durable. Also, the actual elastic piece is covered with matching fabric so it blends in with the rest of the headband.
All of the products at www.coveryourhair.com are reasonably priced. I was at a beauty store this morning and saw that their elastic headbands could be up to $25.00 each. Compare that with Cover Your Hair which offers several in the $10 or less price range.
