I’m such a convert to these wide elastic hair bands. I’d seen them on quite a few US blogs but nowhere in Australia until I found them in Sportsgirl last year. I love them because they’re gentle on your hair and they don’t leave a mark if your hair’s up in a ponytail all day, making it easy to do they sexy librarian thing after five and let your hair down without a huge bump across it. Plus they just look that little bit more chic than a standard black elastic. While we’re on the subject, I hate seeing women working in a corporate environment (or pretty much anywhere) and they have a lovely outfit on but their hair is tied up with some scabby coloured elastic. Like red! Looks so bad. Doubly bad if it’s one of those terry toweling ties.
I bought the above packs for just a dollar each in the Diva sale. Get on board people.
