Hair stylist Jeff Chastain showed us the magic of hair bungees during one of our first video shoots and we were immediately hooked (literally…get it?). An alternative to rubber bands, they’re gentler on your hair and loads more fun to use.
How it Works
The bungee consists of a piece of covered elastic with a hook on either end. You loop it around your ponytail (or a bun, if you’re advanced), securing both ends in you hair.
How to Use
We’re not going to lie – this takes a little practice (unless you’re a hair bungee savant, in that case more power to you). Start by creating a ponytail. Hold it one hand and use your free hand to secure one hook on the underside of the ponytail. Wrap the bungee around the top of the ponytail and continue wrapping until the elastic is taut. Finally, secure the free hook in your hair.
