If you haven’t seen these new hair ties yet, you’re really missing out. As someone with curly, frizzy,and thick hair that’s hard to manage and pull back, I’ve always hated run-of-the-mill ponytails. They stretch, snap, and crease my hair. I’ve always played sports, and its a constant battle between keeping my hair straight or frizzless and getting it out of my face.
I started noticing these handy little hair ties in accessories boutiques around town. The fun colors and patterns are adorable! Emi-Jay makes them, but you can find other non-name brand ones too. I like how they’re really cute looking in my hair (and on my wrist!) , and they keep my hair in place without the struggles of an standard hair tie. They don’t snap and barely stretch. I use them until they start to fray and fade, making them worth their slightly higher cost. I’m always asked about them ( I guess they’re not as popular in Georgia as they are at home).
Free People makes some really great patterns as well, they’re next on my list of must-haves (maybe in five or six months when my current ties get retired…)
