Headbands of Hope Subscription Review + Coupon – July 2018
Note from Liz: I’m so happy to introduce our newest reviewer to the MSA team! Welcome, Rachel!
Headbands of Hope was inspired by its founder’s internship at a wish-granting organization that worked with cancer patients. She noticed that many of the children enjoyed wearing headbands after chemotherapy left then bald, and wanted to find a way to provide such accessories. Headbands of Hope offers a Headband of the Month Club which sends subscribers one new headband per shipment, and for every headband purchased, one is donated to a child with cancer. Headbands of Hope has donated headbands to every children’s hospital in America and 15 other countries. They also regularly donate proceeds to childhood cancer research charities.
This is a review of the Headband of the Month Club.
This was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Headbands of Hope July 2018 Review
As a two-time breast cancer survivor, I relate to the mission of Headbands of Hope. As an accessory lover, I relate to the desire to have cute ways to play with my look, whether I have long locks or none at all!
I really liked this month’s headband, and especially appreciate that it is adjustable. When laid flat and adjusted to its longest length, the headband measures 10.25 inches. When adjusted to it’s shortest length, it measures 8.25 inches. The width of the main part of the band is .5 inches. The decorative part of the band measures 10.5 inches and is not stretchy.
The headband features a flat gold interwoven with a sparkly gold band attached to a black, adjustable elastic back. I think this could be a perfect day-to-night piece, pairing perfectly with a simple white tee or a flashy cocktail dress.
Since my hair is still growing out after chemo treatment, I would have liked for the decorative part of the band to be a bit longer.
With a wig on, I was able to hide the elastic part and just show off the gold detailing.
Verdict: This month’s headband from Headbands of Hope was versatile and pretty. It looks especially great when the adjustable part of the band can be hidden by hair. It may not work for someone who is bothered by seeing the back, but I think it’s still totally rock-able!
