First off, these “new” hair ties (I don’t really know what to call them exactly) come in so many colors and looks beautiful in the hair. The ones I got aren’t long enough to tie my hair in a ponytail securely but I think you can get longer ones, depending on where you get them.
Apparently, they can also be used as bracelets! They are quite cute but I wouldn’t recommend wearing more than one of two at a time! 🙂
But most of all, I would recommend to get them at stores like Nordstrom Rack or TJMaxx where you can get a set of five for $5 rather than four for $12 at stores like J. Crew.
Get some for yourself, they don’t leave a kink in your hair either.
p.s. It is bleepin hard to get a good macro picture on a Nikon D40. Seriously.
