Keep your bangs dry.

Washing and styling my hair is my other full-time job, which makes maintaining my hard work essential. Going on a rainy walk after my wash day? Ha! Good luck. But there are still so many activities that threaten to upset my hair. Whether I'm washing my face at the end of the day, applying a skincare mask, or I just want to keep my bangs out of my eyes without using cute hair clips, the solution is easy: spa headbands.

Unlike Blair Waldorf headbands that exist to make you look cute, spa headbands have one purpose: keep your hair out of your face, dry and safe. Whether you want a super cute cat-eared headband, or you're looking for an option that's more function than fun, here are the 11 best-rated spa headbands that will keep your hair from getting wet.

Why have one, when you could have eight? These fleece, bow-adorned spa headbands make it easy to keep your hair out of your face, without making your hair frizzy.

Amazon rating: 4.7/5 stars

An Amazon reviewer says: “I love these so much. I'm going to be giving some away as gifts!”

This product makes it easy not to disturb your hairstyle. Instead of a traditional headband, this version is a wrap that stays in place with velcro, so you don’t need to push your head through an elastic band.

Amazon rating: 4.7/5 stars

An Amazon reviewer says: “The bands are quite solid. Good quality. I love it. Perfect while doing make-up!”

Consider this headband a step towards inner child work. Personally, I use this headband because it combines comfort and cuteness.

Urban Outfitters rating: 4.6/5 stars

An Urban Outfitters reviewer says: “Very cute! I got the frog, and it is fairly wide, which is great. It’s effective at containing my wispy curly hair while I do a mask.”

Finding a headband that doesn’t budge is a journey. This version is soft, super cute, and won’t fall off your head mid-cleanse.

Ulta rating: 4.6/5 stars

An Ulta reviewer says: “I finally found one of these headbands that actually works the way I want it to, so my hair can stay out of my face when I need to do my makeup or skincare routine! It’s great and, of course, super cute!”

Curls can be fragile, so they need the best of the best. This silk headband keeps your hair out of your face without disrupting, tugging, or causing frizz.

Dermstore rating: 4.6/5 stars

A Dermstore reviewer says: “It is so silky and smooth. Love putting it on and it doesn’t tug at the hair. Great to use and I’ll be getting another one.”

Sporty spice, meet your new favorite headband. This 12-pack of elastic headbands will actually stay on–whether you're working out, washing your face, or you just need to keep your bangs out of your eyes.

Amazon rating: 4.6/5 stars

An Amazon reviewer says: “I’ve bought SO many headbands because they claim to stay in place, these actually do! And they're super comfortable, and not itchy at all.”

If you can manage not to take a selfie while wearing this headband, I commend you. This product is super soft and comfortable and pays homage to the brand’s favorite skincare ingredient–goat’s milk!

Ulta rating: 4.6/5 stars

An Ulta reviewer says: “I’ve got big, curly hair and a small head. The size comfortably pulls my hair back without ruining my curls and isn’t too tight around my head nor too loose.”

Nothing is worse than getting a tight-fitting headband that ends up causing a headache. This adjustable, wrap headband makes that sensation a thing of the past.

Amazon rating: 4.5/5 stars

An Amazon reviewer says: “Great product, easy to adjust. I have thick hair and have no issues looping my hair through. Love this!!”

These microfiber headbands are almost too cute to handle. They're gentle for all hair types, and fit even smaller head shapes without sliding off.

Amazon rating: 4.4/5 stars

An Amazon reviewer says: “I was hesitant to order these because I have ordered so many different spa headbands and none of them fit my small head. I went ahead and ordered them anyways and to my surprise, they fit like a glove. The material is so soft. It keeps my hair dry and they fit my small head. Will be ordering more.”

Looking for your first spa headband? This one has everything the first-timer needs: soft material, a tight fit, and cat ears for the cute factor.

Ulta rating: 4.4/5 stars

An Ulta reviewer says: “I love it! It’s adorable and it fits very well. It’s great for applying your makeup and washing your face.”

Sometimes, the simplest option is the best one. This pack of 19 headbands makes it easy to workout or clean your face. If you’re trying to pinch a few pennies, you get major bang for your buck with this set.

Amazon rating: 4.1/5 stars

An Amazon reviewer says: “Love the variety for the price and how many came in a pack.”
