Each day I coordinate my outfit with one of my hair ties. I never leave the house with out. Before I discovered the twistband, I was the sort of girl who could tie a knot in her hair to keep it back. Who has 20 bobby pins in the bottom of her purse, in case of an emergency (and can never locate one). I even resorted to the tacky rubber hair ties around the wrist, which were just a little bit too tight. Now, I have a different tie for every day of the week. They do not damage my hair, nor do they attract attention. They stretch out a little after use but I run them under water each day and hang to dry- in the morning they have regained thier lovely shape!
