I love these headbands! BAMR, what does that mean? It stands for Bad Ass Mother Runners. They are the brainchild of Katie Heddleston. Not only does she make these headbands herself, she also donates $1 from every sale to Every Mother Counts. Check out her shop and blog. She’s quite amazing!

These headbands are non-slip AND stylish! Don’t let the name fool you they are not just for runners. They are for BAD ASSES of all kinds. I wear them to work, run and workout. I have several and plan on purchasing more. I love supporting people and great causes. Here’s a little part of my collection.


Each headband is lined with a velvet ribbon that helps cling to the hair, making them non-slip. The back of the headband has elastic that is attached from behind the ear and goes around the nape of the neck. They do not get caught on or pull your hair.


I have run half marathons, strength trained and worked my ass off with these bands on my head. There was no slippage and no sweat in my eyes. The Bands also have themes and she also makes custom orders. My first half marathon was on St. Patrick’s Day and I had a clover headband on. It made me feel festive for the occasion. She is always updating her patterns and she has slim and wide bands.



I tend to coordinate my Bands with my clothes and active wear. They tame my wild locks and keep me fashionable at the same time. I’m stylin’ and profilin’. These Bands make me feel Bad Ass. I know that I can run or workout without them slipping and causing an unwanted interruption. I will give you this disclaimer; once you order and wear them, you will want more.

Sweat motivates me because it makes me push harder and it makes me feel like I’m really working my butt off! 😊
