Bondi Band Review and Giveaway


As a super busy SAHM to a very active 2yr old I don’t have a whole lot of time to spend washing, drying and styling my hair so when I find a product that allows me to skip one of the steps, save time and be on my way running errands and cleaning house I’m all about giving it a chance. I recently ran across Bondi Band and this company has a large selection of headbands and I’m sure you will find something for everyone in your family!

About Bondi Band (Taken From Website):

The Idea
The simple premise of Bondi Bands is to offer comfy, colorful, and creative headbands to fit every lifestyle and personality.

By using stretchy and breathable material, we allow Bondi Bands to fit virtually every head size comfortably and fashionably.

Our buyers constantly search for the newest and trendiest fabric designs and complement them with traditional craftsmanship to bring our customers the best product available on the market.

Our Charity
We are a simple company with a dedication and belief in our product. Our philosophy is to make a great product at a great price and to build relationships one at a time. And as much as we believe in making a tidy profit we also believe in giving back. Each year we donate 10% of our pretax profits to charity. For 2009 we have chosen the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) is a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute. It is a major affiliate of Harvard Medical School and is located in Boston, Massachusetts.

The origins of DFCI date back to 1947. DFCI employs about 3,000 people. Most importantly, there are more than 150,000 patient visits a year, and it is involved in some 200 clinical trials. It is internationally known for its research and clinical excellence.

We figured if we were going to give away some money, this should be where it goes to.


My Thoughts:

I was sent a couple of Bondi Bands to review and I have to tell you these save me time in the mornings at least twice a week! The are super comfy and unlike other headbands I’ve tried don’t slip during the day and stay put nicely. I’ve gotten quite a few complements about how nice I look even though I was going for a comfy casual look so that’s always a plus with a toddler when you can look nice and not have to spend a lot of time on yourself!

I love that Bondi Band offers something for everyone in your family they have headbands for babies ages 1-5 and they are supper duper cute, Buddies (for your dogs), guys and girls of all ages!! I just love their selections and the two that were sent to me were wonderful! I received the Cheetah Print design on lycra which somehow my sister has ended up with and been wearing pretty regularly??? I also received a purple Bondi Band that had the word MOM on the front of it which was my absolute favorite and the one I wear the most!! I have used both of these on my nightly jog and can safely say that I do not have one complaint they both worked wonderful to keep my hair and sweat out of my eyes while running.

I really recommend these to anyone busy mom or not so busy mom to teens, men and children they are very comfy and with so many styles to choose from what have you got to loose!

  77. Even after narrowing it down to the Lycra Light Fashion Bands collection/selection, it was still a real challenge to narrow it down to two (although I do appreciate the generosity!)

    I finally settled on the Coral Ribbon Fashion Band and the Mermaid. Whew - but Wow!
