Headbands | $15
Any athlete with medium or long hair can relate to the frustration of keeping hair in place and out of your eyes. Since your headband will likely get sweaty too, keep a few washable ones on rotation. You’ll also want to look for a good yoga headband that won’t slip right off your head.

You can often choose to go barefoot or wear socks to classes like yoga, pilates, and barre. Sporting a pair of special socks with grip can help you nail tougher poses. Especially if you’re trying a new type of hot yoga class that brings HIIT into the picture.
