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. But we’re not talking about any old headband — we’re 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, keep hair out of your face, and elevate your entire cleansing routine. To help you navigate through the hundreds of options available, we rounded up our 10 favorite face wash headbands that are just as adorable as they are functional, and paired some with our favorite skin cleansers.

Kitsch Spa Headband

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. It’s great for face washing, makeup application and around-the-house activities. If you have oily skin, try it with the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Facial Wash.

HOPESHINE Spa Facial Headbands

Why choose one color when you can have three? This three-pack of affordable, plush headbands is super cute and practical. The extra wide band helps to keep hair out of your face and can be tossed in the washer when needed to be refreshed. Wear this headband while using the CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser if your face is feeling dry.

I Dew Care Black Cat Headband

Have you ever seen a more purr-fect headband? This ultra-soft accessory keeps hair tucked away from your face and features adorable cat ears so you can make your face wash routine more fun. Try it with the L'Oréal Paris Skincare Revitalift Bright Reveal Facial Cleanser to exfoliate while you cleanse.

Slip Pink Knot Headband

For a trendy option, we love this silk headband from Slip. Made with pure silk, this durable headband holds hair back without tugging for a luxe, comfy experience. Wear while cleansing with the Garnier Green Labs SkinActive Hyalu-Melon Smoothing Milky Washable Cleanser or as an accessory with your favorite outfit. 

Bonne Nuit Spa Turban

Recreate the feeling of your favorite spa with this headband. Made with terry honeycomb fabric to prevent irritation and a velcro close to ensure a comfortable fit, this is the ultimate accessory to wear when applying an at-home face mask like the Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask. Choose between baby blue, white or a blush color, or buy a set of all three.

Kiehl’s Ultra Hydrators Value Bundle 

To really simplify your routine, snag this bundle. It includes a terry spa headband, plus two best-selling Kiehl’s products. Put the headband on during your nighttime routine, lather on the Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Mask, and then get some true beauty rest. Or, use it in the A.M. with the Ultra Facial Cream to start your day with a boost of hydration.

Urban Outfitters Spa Day Headband

With a purple check pattern and bow knot, this terry cloth headband is as functional as it is cute. The stretchy elastic will keep your hair back comfortably while you wash your face or apply makeup, and doubles as a stylish accessory. Reach for it alongside the Thayers PH Balancing Gentle Face Wash if you’re looking for softer, more even skin.

Lele Sadoughi Ivory Jessie Terry Headband 

Lele Sadoughi is known for fun, embellished headbands that are perfect for accessorizing an outfit, and while this terry option is more minimalist, we love the ruched, thin design. It’s luxe, stylish and feels a little vintage, making it a must for putting on makeup… or taking mirror selfies.

Organic Cotton Headband 

With a timeless striped pattern and convenient velcro design, these handmade organic cotton  headbands are created without dyes or bleaches, which means they’re perfect for those with skin allergies. Plus, they’re easy to adjust, making them even more comfortable while you wash your face or set your makeup.

Blissy Beauty Band

Thanks to its frictionless properties, silk helps prevent hair breakage and frizz, which is why so many opt for a silk pillowcase. This headband is made with the same 100% mulberry silk as the brand’s cult-favorite pillowcases, so you can get the same hair care benefits while you’re applying your makeup or your night time moisturizer.
