Hello! I am Janet Laster Purkey, MD. A few years ago, I decided to "let my bangs grow out"; little did I know that such a small change would bring about a unique headband for women around the world! I needed a comfortable solution to hold hair away from my face that was also stylish and professional. I hate getting headaches from wearing traditional bands. I was constantly using reading glasses as my band, but I needed those glasses to read. One day, the idea of Zazzy Bandz crystallized as I understood certain glasses gave me a "look" I really liked while others did not. I created a uniquely shaped prototype and began wearing it in every setting-ALL DAY LONG. It provided a very comfortable hold while also giving lift and style plus no headache-causing pressure points!
I knew that if I had created a painless headband other women would want it too! Determined to solve this problem for people, I shared my idea with my friend Laura Barker who immediately understood the concept of the perfect headache-free headband. Together we sought out folk in the local industry to patent, produce, and market Zazzy Bandz.
Our business concept for Zazzy Bandz grows from our Christian faith. We are committed to supporting Christian ministry and philanthropic missions. We believe Zazzy Bandz will not only help women achieve the effortless style and lift needed for any occasion, but also help more causes as our business thrives.
I am an Internal Medicine physician who enjoys teaching medical students and residents for over 25 years. I love caring for patients and teaching medical simulation and procedures. I love being Charles' wife and mom to 3 kids (now adults!). I am an outdoor lover.. Tennis is my favorite sport with horseback riding a close second. Life was chugging along well with all that a wife/mom/woman/physician does when a little idea popped into my head! I am delighted to share Zazzy Bandz with you.
Each purchase helps support the children and those who love and care for them at Peniel Centre Orphanage in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Please look at Our Giving Page to learn more about this wonderful place and the people who live there.
I hope you love wearing Zazzy Bandz, but knowing there are great variations in head size and hair textures, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
