I like it this dainty hair elastic. The pastel pack was what I searched for. All the colors are esp. nice for spring/summer and for anyone who favors pastels. I hand washed the first one I got in another box. I had a thought to dry it from one dresser know to another. No harm done and kept it's shape, held up well and stretched enough I can more it around more as a headband. All in all I was glad to get them as it's I find small bands work better for my size than larger ones and I have short hair but not so short I don't need something to pul it back at times. Esp. when over due for a salon visit.
