Chickbands review and giveaway

A couple weeks ago, Kara, originally from this Philly area, and the creator of Chickbands contacted me to do a review and giveaway. Deja' vu that her name is Kara! I don't know many Karas. 

The bands are ribbon that shows out and velvet - so soft - on the back - the side that goes on your hair. They are sewed very professionally and then have elastic along the bottom half.   I like that they have the velvet- it makes them very comfortable and pretty looking too.  Kara sent me two bands - a thick and thin one. Pictured here is the thin one is sparkly blue.  I wore it to pick pears to keep those weird pieces that hang down back.  It stays put and doesn't slide back and it's stylish! I love the sparkly blue. I have to look into a sparkly pink - I like girly colors!  For running, I wore the thicker band but didn't take a picture. It had flowers on it and was multicolored. It stayed put nicely and kept the sweat out of my face.  There are many different prints and she does custom orders for different logos - they are so cute!  The bands go for $7 and $8 each  - check out Chick Bands on Facebook and Etsy!

  8. I really like the Samantha Belle skinny band, but it doesn't match any of my running clothes. The black and white polka dot is super cute and would match my running clothes better. My 8 year old would love the one with peace signs--I might have to order it for her for volleyball.

  9. I ALWAYS wear a headband when I run, and it is my go-to "hairstyle" when home w/the little guy. Just like you described, it keeps those "weird pieces" back and out of the way. I currently use ones that I have purchased from another Etsy seller, but would love to try one of Kara's from Chic Bands!

  15. The only hairbands I wear are from the drugstore and are not cute or attractive. I should probably do something about that.
