Bolder Band! The Bold, Beautiful You!

You may have seen pictures of us recently sporting our colorful fun headbands, may I introduce to you the Bolder Band

This is the Jitterbug Bolder Band! Little car selfie in the Starbucks drive-through because how cool is my band? I pulled back the side of it so you can see the crazy of my post-pregnancy hair growth. Mind of its own!

Why do I love these bands so much? Well, my headband affair and ensuing drama started as an adolescent athlete trying to keep the tiny hair in place and sweat out of my face. Most headbands fell off and those that didn't hurt my head. I spent many moments of soccer games and jogs readjusting and putting my headbands back on. I have tried SO MANY headbands and have only found comfort and fit with one other (a simple Prana yoga band with a logo tag right in the middle of the forehead, but hey, it stayed on).

In recent years I've done more child chasing than running and soccer playing. Post-partum hair loss has resulted in me sporting a crown of tiny little hairs that stick up and make me look a little crazy from 6-18 months after baby is born. After that I can typically coerce them into my pony tail. The humidity in the area makes these hairs have a mind of their own and I have resorted to putting headbands on to help tame the craze. I was getting frustrated with the daily battle of figuring out what to do with my hair and had contemplated chopping it all off when I decided to finally check out these Bolder Bands that I had been seeing advertised. 

I went to the website and was blown away with the style options! I bought three because FREE SHIPPING or Lip Balm (I went for the lip balm, it's fantastic too) and I couldn't choose just one. They arrived within a few days and I was amazed at the quality and the detail. They add a coordinating fabric on the back that they sew the tag on to, and there is no garish tag on the forehead. I ordered Tiki Me, Jitterbug and Navy. They came in an awesome little package with the Bolder Band Mantra: 

Bolder Band Mantra. I love that they include the every-day "tasks" of life and motherhood and acknowledge the boldness and beauty of the little things! I'll admit it, when I opened the package this little mantra upped my inspiration for the day!

They are also great for those of us who wear our babies. They are really fun to coordinate with my carriers, and as someone who loves fabric and prints, there are lots of bands that work with my wrap stash. Beyond that, my little guy is fascinated by pulling my hair when I wear him. The Bolder Bands help keep my tiny back of neck hairs nicely hidden and keep his hair pulling ways at bay. 

Bolder Bands are made in the USA and are based in Colorado. The founder and creator Amy Crouse is a mama of three and started making Bolder Bands because her headband would pop off her head when she worked out, so she started making her own. She gave them to some friends and Bolder Bands took off from there. 

The awesome customer service and excitement emanating from this company is something that I want to be a part of! They are SO fun to follow on Facebook and feature fan photos every Friday in a video, and if you are in that video, you get a free band!  Starting in October Bolder Bands will be coming to Simply Carried Parties and Events. We will have them for sale on our website eventually but for now they are available through our parties and events!

I am ordering a variety pack of 20 different colors of bands and am taking pre-orders for local friends and customers for the next two weeks. When they get here we will have a Bolder Band Portland kick-off party! Email me or connect on Facebook to reserve your bands! I need to have 100 pre-ordered before they get here! If you can't get to the party I will get your bands to you either by hand-delivering or dropping them in the mail.  

These are the prints I have coming in! Photos from bbolder.com. I will have them in size Small and Regular!

One last word! Because Bolder Band is such an awesome company dedicated to customer service, if your band slips and you have the right size and are wearing it properly (small for heads 19.5-21.5" or regular for heads 21-22.5") you can return your band (minus shipping). As a retailer I will be offering the same! Bolder Band also offers custom bands, and can make smaller and larger bands in some of the prints (you may need to request the items, they are great at getting back to you quickly though). They even have manly bands called Bro Bands.

Get excited folks! Your headband world will be rocked by Bolder Bands! They can be worn in six different ways. They are a quick way to feel awesome about your outfit with a cute, functional and affordable accessory. You may need one in all the colors! The regular and small sizes are $15 a piece for the regular line. Reserve yours today from Simply Carried or if you simply can't wait, grab one directly from BBolder.com. At that I leave you with cute sleeping baby and a relaxing Mollie at the beach in Jitterbug.
