About Us


Ashley Charters

Ashley was an All American softball player for the University of Washington. After graduating in 2009 with a degree in Education and Sociology she went on to play for Team USA and the USSSA Florida Pride.

Ashley and Layne met in 2010 and by 2011 they collaborated and Glitterbandz was created. Ashley continues to travel all over the world spreading the word about Glitterbandz and giving back to the youth of softball. Ashley is the marketing arm of the company, using her connections in the industry to gain exposure.


Layne Bryant

Layne graduated in 2009 with a degree in Fashion Marketing from Art Institute of York Pennsylvania. After graduation, she worked for a Sports Marketing and Management company where she was introduced to Ashley Charters. They collaborated on the design of a glittery headband that was stylish, yet practical, but most importantly, one that would NOT slip off of an athlete’s head. In 2011, they decided that they wanted to officially create Glitterbandz, and their company was born. Since day one, Layne has sewn and packaged every single headband at her home office in Baltimore, MD.
