Lilac Snaps - Ear Saver Headbands

3 minute read

The perfect ear-saver is here: Lilac Snaps!

How did Lilac Snaps come to be? When the COVID-19 virus began its rampage, the need for something comfortable for all mandatory mask-wearers touched our hearts. Taking action, we released ear saver headbands - where we started hand-sewing buttons onto headbands at no cost to our beloved customers. However, being a small company, we couldn't have foreseen how massive the demand would be, and had to make the difficult choice to discontinue offering buttons...

Until now.

Now you can save your ears with Lilac Snaps! These magnetic buttons are completely versatile and specially designed to give you total control over where your mask sits, which headband you want to wear it with, and when you take a break from the mask.

Time-tested by us, they won't come apart until you take them off and never lose their staying power. And when you're done for the day, they're easily removable and their portable size makes them as easy to store as a pair of earrings, leaving your favorite headband just as it should be.

Just like a pair of shoes, each set ordered includes two Lilac Snaps, one for each side of the headband. Plus, one set works for all your Lilac Market Headbands without damaging them with sewing thread.

5 Steps to wear your Lilac Snaps

Step 1: Put on your headband in the style you like. We recommend putting it on over your ears at least initially until you have your snaps in place.

Step 2: Separate the outer button from the smaller magnetic disc on the back by sliding them apart, NOT pulling them apart. They're tiny but strong magnets!

Step 3: Hold the larger button in place on the outside of the headband just above your ear with one hand, keeping the logo on the outside. With your other hand, place the smaller magnetic disc between your head and headband until it meets with the button and connects, creating the magnetized snap. Make sure the flat side of the smaller magnet is what's going against the headband itself.

Step 4: Put your mask on and loop the ear pieces around the outside button. You can adjust the mask tension to your comfort by sliding the snap around the fabric until you feel it's just right. You can now put the headband behind your ears, if you prefer.

Step 5: To remove the snaps, take off your mask and remove your headband first (you can remove them while it's still on, but there's more potential to drop the smaller piece accidentally). Slide the small magnetic disc with your finger away from the button, and they should easily disconnect and be free from your headband. Put them back together for storing when not in use.
