The Cutest Headbands to Wear While Washing Your Face
Let’s be real, a hair tie alone isn’t always enough to hold your hair back while washing your face. To get the job done, a headband can also be helpful. Now I’m not talking about any old headband, I’m talking about a plush spa headband. Typically made from super absorbent materials like microfiber or terry cloth, these thick bands ensure your hairline doesn’t get completely soaked and effectively keep hair out of your face, not to mention they elevate your entire cleansing routine. To help you navigate through the hundreds of options available, we rounded up our five favorite face wash headbands that are just as adorable as they are functional.
This multifunctional headband doubles as a hair tie. The built-in ponytail holder prevents creases caused by hair elastics, while the velcro design firmly and comfortably secures the headband to your head.

Why choose one color when you can have three? This three-pack of affordable, plush headbands is super cute and practical.
