Keep the water away and your hairstyle intact during your next GRWM with one of these highly-absorbent and ultra-cute wraps.
Whether you're washing your face in the morning, wiping away the day's makeup, or filming your next GRWM on TikTok, a spa headband is essential for keeping your hairline dry and pesky wet strands from sticking to your face. The best ones to look for should be made from an ultra-absorbent material used in towels like microfiber or terry cloth, and they should be comfortable and stretchy enough to wrap around your head. And if they're cutely designed, that's always a major bonus, too. Here, the best spa headbands to upgrade your at-home self-care routine.
Scroll on your For You page, and there's also an influencer or beauty aficionado holding back their hair with the viral bubble headband. It's effective at keeping your hair dry, comfortable on your head—and it's cute to boot.
One reviewer writes: "This fits great and doesn’t mess up my hair when I am putting on makeup in the mornings and holds back my hair when I am washing my face at night. Super cute, too!"
Three adorably-bowed microfiber headbands for less than $10? That's what we call a best bang for your buck bundle! They're even suitable for sports and yoga!
One Amazon reviewer writes: "I love these bands. It keeps all the water from sliding into my hair line and the band isn’t too tight. I personally don’t need to put my hair up to use this product, which, is a lot of the reason I like it. Machine washable and I would suggest washing before using since it does have a packaging scent to it when you first take it out. One wash and it was gone. Worth it to me."
There's nothing more annoying than washing your face at the sink and having water dripping down your arms and on the countertop, causing a big wet mess. Allow us to present you with a solution: a spa headband and wristbands kit. The headband protects you from getting your style damp, while the wristbands soak up all the water from your hands. Genius.
One reviewer says: "These are so soft to the touch, they dry really fast, and the colors are awesome! Goes through the wash with no issues. I mostly ordered this for the wrist bands because I hate having water drip down my arms while washing my face, and they stop every drop that tries to escape! These bands have been a game changer, and I use them every single day!"
For those with a lot of hair, this extra-big headband is super convenient because its stretchy design allows you to fully tuck your hair in while washing your face, relaxing in the bath, or applying your makeup.
One reviewer raves: "I absolutely adore this product. Its so comfortable, soft and just feels great! I love how it stay's on when I am doing my facial self care masks/creams. And I don't have to worry about it slipping!"
You're not only getting a soft-to-the-touch headband with this purchase but also an equally-as-lush scrunchie for tying back your hair and helping to reduce hair damage, breakage, and frizz. It's a win-win.
One Amazon reviewer raves: "It's really really really soft. And absorbs a surprising amount of water. I have long hair and my hair takes forever to dry. I like to braid my hair and use this tie on the bottom, because water travels down and the bottom of my hair always takes forever to dry. Sometimes I leave this scrunch overnight and it's so soft that it doesn't bother me at all. Very nice purchase!"
For the classic spa headband look, Amazon sells a set of three made of terry cloth and that are adjustable with a Velcro strip. They feel incredibly comfy against the skin and are perfect for at-home facials, face cleansing, showering, and beyond.
One reviewer says: "The headband has been great for me. It has all the features as described. The elastic is strong and the band is made from a soft material. It’s adjustable for head size. I mainly use it to keep the hair out of my face and it is perfect for that. Just sent it through the wash and still holds together great! I got the black, grey, and white pack but I’m sure all the colors look nice."
Upgrade your GRWM videos with a yummy spa headband embroidered with your initials. You have the option to choose from two colors and various embroidery shades. Plus, it makes for an easy and thoughtful spa gift for the self-care devotees in your life.
One shopper says: "I was having a hard time keeping my hair dry when I washed my face, but this headband solved the problem. And it’s very cute, too. The Velcro makes it secure and the fabric is very substantial. I love it!"
A satin headband not only prevents your mane from getting wet, but its luxuriously supple material protects it and keeps your look frizz-free.
Here's a spa headband that lives up to its name. Its soft microfiber fabric feels divine against the hairline and it stays put without creating undesirable creases in your style.
One shopper writes: "This little headband is comfy and has good snap back in the elastic but isn’t so tight that it creases. It keeps water out of my hair when I’m washing my face and makes my mask time feel very luxurious. Would make a great gift!"
This lush spa headband caters to all head shapes and sizes, and is adjustable and easy to wrap thanks to a hidden Velcro strip. If you ask us, the pink hue is pretty irresistible, too.
Public Goods's face cleansing headband isn't designed with a Velcro closure, but its meant to have a universal fit. And don't worry about the white getting stained with your foundation—it's machine washable and gets softer with every wash.
One reviewer says: "This headband is so soft and comfortable. It keeps my hair out of the way when I am putting on makeup and washing my face. I highly recommend!"
