For the last two years, I have been obsessed with finding one of those giant headband-like things I’ve seen on some women outside yoga studios. I’ve never actually seen one on one of the women in my yoga class. It would have been much easier to ask for a retail source than spend two years (off and on) researching the topic online. It’s one of those things you think about when you’ve got a little too much free time on your hands, conducting online searches during commercial breaks.
After my most recent exhausting search I finally came across the BUFF. I suppose if I watched Survivor I would have known of the infamous Buff much earlier. I have no intention of using the versatile accessory as a Balacava, face mask, do rag or tube top but I do appreciate the versatility should I one day require it. For now, I’m just using it as I originally intended…a giant headband.
Many of the designs are a bit over-the-top for my taste but I did find a few designs I really liked such as the wool buff shown above. Final thoughts: pricey and too much fabric if all you’re looking for is a headband. If you’re looking for a multi-functional accessory– scarf, headband, etc.– this would be a great choice.
