Violet Love headbands were created in 2006 by then-civil engineer Rebecca Michaels, an avid runner and fashion maven who set out to create a headband to suit her needs and lifestyle. After sewing her first bright orange headband, she wore it for a run. It functioned like a charm, absorbing the sweat that used to drip into her ears, while comfortably staying put. That fall, Violet Love won Surf Expo’s Launched contest, featuring the 10 hottest products of the year.
Fashionistas wear Violet Love...Headbands are hip, cute, inexpensive ways to add color to an outfit, and headbands make women feel feminine during sweaty workouts and dirty outdoor activities. If you have to be a hot mess, you may as well look good doing it.
Athletes wear Violet Love... And we mean Olympians. The U.S. Women’s Ice Hockey Team wore custom Violet Love headbands to the 2010 Olympic games in Vancouver. And Forward Kelli Stack wore the very same headband again during the medal ceremony at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.
We also mean the 2,300-plus yogis who filled Detroit’s Ford Field for a world record- breaking indoor yoga class in February 2014, wearing custom Violet Love headbands.
That’s not all. Runners, climbers, surfers and other outdoor enthusiasts also rely on Violet Love to absorb sweat during intense workouts.
