I don’t know about you, but I think hair ties are one of the most annoying things in the world. You really do need them at some point, there’s no way around it, but then they leave an awful crease line in your hair that completely messes up its flow. Other reasons why they’re the worst? You give them away to friends never to see them again, then you need to re-stock because you never know when you’re going to walk into a room that could double as a sauna. Plus, you always find yourself without one the one time it’s not cutting off the circulation around your wrist. Not to mention, they’re kind of just plain old ugly.
Luckily, Shopbop is on our side and created these no crease hair ties that LITERALLY solve all of these problems and ones you never thought you had. First, your friends won’t keep these, if they even ask to borrow one, because they look more like real bracelets and not some 50 cent rubber bands. Second, the ties aren’t too tight around your wrist or hair, but still hold your pony tail up. They don’t cause tension which means there’s less hair breakage (no more shedding! I know some of you feel me on that) and that means no creases in your hair! Finally we don’t have to worry about how our hair will look when we put it up and take it down a million and one times throughout the day. Need proof? Check out the pictures above where I show you how these really work.
And just as an added bonus, these are actually kind of cute. They come in all different colors, from neons and pastels to tie dye and glitter metallic. But there’s also neutral options if you’re like me and don’t want a hot pink ribbon coming out of your head.
