Headband Tutorial and Giveaway!!!

FITNESSHEADBANDIf you work out then you know that keeping your hair out of your face is a must!

It's right up there with comfortable shoes in my world.  If my hair gets in my face I am distracted and annoyed.
There is nothing worse than stopping in the middle of an intense workout to adjust your headband or ponytail.

Being a P.E. teacher I have gone through every, and I mean EVERY, headband there is.  Cute, tight, loose, thin, thick.
I have done the leg work and I have discovered the most comfortable workout headband yet.

It stays on my head, it's tight, but it doesn't cut off the circulation to my brain.
They are super adorable, but the best part, you can make them yourself!

Here's what you need:

A pair of adult or child leggings or tights


THAT'S IT!!!!!!


I went to our local Party City and went through the Halloween area and just the color area and found all of these leggings and tights for less than $6.00 a piece.
Knowing that you can make 2 to 4 headbands with each pair, I like to call this a great deal.

Here's what you do...

First lay out your leggings or tights.

These are adult tights, so I should get 4 headbands out of the pair.  Cut the legs off of the top and then cut the toes off.

This is where you determine if you can make 4 or 2.  With the adult tights I was fine with cutting them in half. But, if you have a big head you may want to wrap it around and test it out.
There's no going back once you cut.

Here comes the easy part- You literally just tie it in a knot behind your head and you are done.
Easy peasy.


The headbands cover a large part of your hair area so your bangs and "whispies," as we call them, stay out of your face.

If you want to get fancy, you could also sew them together.
I feel that these headbands are so stretchy that they have the tendency to stretch out so I like to leave mine knotted so I can adjust them as they loosen a bit if need be.

If you are using a legging or a child size tight you will probably only get 2 headbands out of a pair.

These were an adult pair of leggings, but I felt it would have been too tight to make two from each leg.  So I just made each leg a headband.  These may be my favorite since it is in my college color.
I will definitely be wearing these to a ton of SIU events coming up! Go Dawgs!

Seriously the easiest tutorial ever.
We hope that these help you stay adorable during your next workout!
