Sport’n Style: Halo Sports Headbands

Feels like a century ago now than I ran Hackney Half Marathon. My training has changed since then but one thing that hasn’t has been the heat.

Race day saw temperatures in excess of 22 degrees celsius before midday even hit! I went prepared though – hydration was key for me, and outfit was second to that. I chose items which were light, breathable and sweat wicking. I also kinda broke the golden rule about trying new things on race day, but I thought “how bad could a headband be?!” …surely it could only do me more good than it could bad?!

The answer is YES! ..I didn’t even have to think about sweat dripping into my eyes. It fit so comfortably I never had to think about it being on my head. The fact is, when you barely notice a piece of kit that means its doing a pretty amazing job!

I opted for the Halo II in hot pink which also helped me to stand out a little in all the crowds on race day. 


Just for you! Get 10% off (orders in the UK only) using the discount code – KISELLE – Check out their website http://www.haloheadbanduk.com 

My Halo II will be my hot weather (and not so hot weather) hero in the future for sure! In my eyes, the choices were to wipe the sweat away each time it became annoying on my forehead, or purchase a sweatband straight from the 1980’s.

What items are your hot weather heroes?!

    I love halo bands! I randomly bought one at a running store once simply bc I need a headband but it is amazing. I sweat a TON so it's perfect on summer days 🙂

    I don't have prescription sunglasses,and I don't like running with my glasses anyway because they slip and pushing them up all the time is a pita. So when it's hot I make sure I always wear a hat. I've tried headbands but they don't work for me (unless they are earmuff headbands).

    does it really not slip?! If it doesn't slip I am totally sold – with shortish hair that needs to be held back and a propensity to sweat a lot (over share?) non-slipping headbands would be a dream! At the moment I use sweaty betty ones that don't slip too much, but if there is something better….
