Mens Headband Style Guide

Headband Styles for Men

Headbands for men are both fashionable and functional - when done right, that is. 

In designing our headbands, we made sure that we met those 2 objectives with every decision. The result is a line of 3 best selling men's headband styles, all made using ethical USA manufacturing and the finest natural materials. 

Our sweat-wicking mens headbands are perfect for the following:

  • Workouts: yoga, Crossfit, running, the gym...
  • Sports: tennis, squash, soccer, touch football, ultimate frisbee, climbing, skiing...  
  • Sun protection: keep the sweat back and the sun off while hiking, gardening and relaxing at the beach
  • Fashion: Seasonally-chosen colors make our headbands the perfect accessory or accent when out on the town
  • Function: Keeping long hair back, covering grey roots, an organic head cover for chemotherapy...

Below is a breakdown of each of our three popular headband styles: the ENSO, the HU and the AUREA

The Best Selling Mens Headband: the ENSO

Our best selling men's headband is the ENSO - a wide, versatile headband with a single twist. The headband is available in both "Classic" solid colors and "Batik" hand dyed colors. Both styles are equally popular, with many customers owning a few of each.

Key Features of the ENSO Headband for Men

  • Made from a blend of the finest organic cotton (the Classic also includes a 1" Tencel, sustainably harvested eucalyptus tree, window) and spandex. 
  • The organic cotton is ridiculously soft, durable and sweat-wicking
  • The twist, positioned at the nape of the neck, keeps the headband from slipping during even the most intense physical exercise
  • The headband's circumference is 18" though with 7% spandex, the headband easily stretches to comfortably fit a 23" size head, essentially making it One Size Fits All. If worried about fit, try the HU style headband (featured below). 
  • The headbands are woven, dyed, cut, sewn and distributed from L.A. using ethical, USA manufacturing.
