Sports Headbands

We get it, no one likes a headband that slips, slides, or totally pops off during a workout. That’s why Headbands of Hope created moisture-wicking, non-slip, adjustable elastic headbands perfect for taming those fly-aways while staying put during your yoga session, volleyball practice, or a Saturday morning jog. Here’s how to wear a sporty elastic headband for best results:

  1. To learn how to wear an elastic headband for your next workout, start by putting your hair up. You can spray some hairspray where the headband will sit to give the headband something to hold onto.
  2. Slide your headband on and behind your ears. 
  3. For added stay-put protection, place some bobby pins with the opening facing toward you behind your ears and then two more at the base of your head where the headband sits. These two should be crisscrossed in an x-shape and pointing down towards your body. Voila! You’re ready to go!

Adjustable Twist Turbans

Adjustable twist turban elastic headbands are one of the most versatile headband options out there. These elastic headbands are super fun and super easy to style and look great with hair up or down! We’ll explain how to wear twist turbans in a few different ways, so you have multiple options for multiple occasions!


If you want your elastic headband to have that boho-chic look where it sits on top of your hair, simply put the headband over your head and style as you’d like!

Messy Bun/ Pony Tail

  1. If you want your elastic headband to accent your ponytail or messy bun, start by putting your elastic headband around your neck.
  2. Then, put your hair up into a messy bun or ponytail how you want it. 
  3. Next, simply slide your twist turban up and style how you like it!
