The Best Headbands For Yoga And Fitness Retreats

With a variety of colors, styles, and features, choose the best one for you.

When shopping for your next fitness headband, it's important to remember that not all headbands are created equally. There are a variety of qualities you'll want to look out for—especially, depending on what kind of activities you plan on using them for, from yoga and pilates to running and cycling.

Many headbands feature rubber or silicone strips to keep the headband from slipping, and it always helps to have a high-absorbency fabric that wicks moisture and keeps sweat out of your eyes. But most importantly, you'll want a headband that will keep you overall dry and comfortable during your workout to help you stay focused.
