Sparkly Soul

No-Slip Headbands

Ready for Action

A corporate lawyer, triathlete and marathon coach, Dari Passarello isn’t one to sit by the sidelines because her headband wasn’t comfortable. Instead, Dari took matters into her own hands and designed an athletic headband that works as hard as she does.

Vibrant, glittery Sparkly Soul headbands are bright and tight—but not so
tight that you get a headache or snag your hair. The headbands won’t slip off, no matter how intensely you’re exercising, and they’ll keep your hair off your face during sports and fitness activities. They’re made in the U.S. and come in two different widths, thin and wide. You can wear one by itself or double up for a different look.

For running, walking, dancing, yoga, Pilates, cycling and even a night out on the town, a Sparkly Soul headband takes your mind off your ‘do so you can enjoy what you’re doing. It fits tight, feels right, and looks dynamite.

    I have 3 of these & they are wonderful for holding back my hair comfortably when I run, take yoga classes, or spin classes. They fit well and are extremely comfortable. I love the colors and get lots of compliments when I wear them! I first got them at a Taconic Road Runners Club race in Yorktown Heights, NY.

    So happy to see these on Grommet. I have been looking at this type of headband but haven't purchased any yet because I was worried they wouldn't stay put! So great to have Grommet review and recommend these! Bought two! Can't wait to wear them! I coach volleyball and I have several girls on the team wear these type headbands!

    Thank You!

    Hi @Marinda Bramlett - We are glad we found you via the Daily Grommet! Our Sparkly Soul headbands will change your life because they actually stay put! Our headbands are 360 degrees of elastic with no piece of elastic at the back like all other headbands on the market! Thanks for the love and for sharing us with your volleyball girls ;) xo SS

    How small of a head do you think these would still be effective on? I have 4 year old twins doing lots of activities (soccer, ballet, the playground) and I'd love to find something that would work for them too. I'll be picking some up for myself too of course, but I know the purple sparkle would be a big hit with the little ones, if they fit.

    Hi @Heather M - Our Sparkly Soul headbands fit ages 3 and up! Here are some sparkly Pinterest pics: - it really depends on the child though! We have received lots of feedback from mommies that have told us their little ones run off with their Sparkly Soul headbands ;)

    my problem with headbands is that they interfere with the comfort and fit of my glasses, will this alleviate that?

    @cathy As someone who wears glasses, I think this is a great question! We've asked Dori and will be sure to post a response here soon.

    Hi @cathy - Fantastic question! ! The headbands are great with glasses because they are a soft fit. I have my headband on with my reading glasses right now and I also run with my sunglasses. You will be very happy :-)

    Hi @SharonJ! The thin bands are 3/8 of an inch and the wide bands are 5/8 of an inch. They are manufactured exactly the same and fit the same - just depends on how much sparkle you like :-) Go thin if just a touch - go wide for a bolder statement! Sparkle On!
