Welcome to the new and improved ChicBands!

Many years ago, I spent countless hours at the gym or running outside, and my long thick hair was always in my face. I began buying all sorts of headbands to not only keep my hair out of my eyes, but to match my cute outfit. I never found one I liked until I came across some headbands at a running store that had velvet on the inside. These headbands didn't slip, but they were too tight for me and I didn't like the design options (or the heavy price tag!) 

So I bought myself a sewing machine, and took some classes to learn how to sew. My goal was to make my own headbands using materials I liked, and maybe learn how to sew pillows or dresses for my daughter. Within a few months, I felt pretty confident with my headbands, and began giving them to fellow fitness friends for birthday gifts. Immediately, I became known as "the headband girl" at my gym, and people wanted to buy 10 at a time. 

I quickly made the decision that I had to start a company, and get serious about this new hobby. ChicBands was born in April 2011, and I have never looked back. Creating a website became a necessity, but not something I wanted to invest any time or money in. So my sweet husband took some photos I had and created Chicbands.com, which was updated about 5 times in 5 years. I also created a Facebook and Instagram page, but never sold my headbands beyond my own friend circle.

Today I am happy to say that ChicBands has been a huge blessing in my life. Not only does it bring in some extra money, but I was surprised at how great it felt to create something that people loved. I am thrilled to update the website with online ordering and better organization. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or suggestions. I'm looking forward to the next 5 years.
