Default ponytails

My hair is recovering from years of damage so I wear it in a ponytail ALOT. I find these boards super useful so I thought I should register and pay it forward by sharing one of my favorite accessories with everyone. They're hooked hair elastics: here's the site:
http://smoothiesbyintuition.com/pony...gee-bands.html

here's a video of Ken Paves using one to fasten a ponytail; click on the first link under his picture:
http://www.oprah.com/experts/experts_landing.jhtml

I love them because usually if I pull my hair through a normal hair elastic a few times i get frizz. These are great because they don't mess with the shape of your ponytail. They take awhile to master because they tend to slide down your ponytail or tug on individual curls if you don't put them in the right way. And also I don't like the way they look in your hair, because sometimes the hooks are visible. To hide the elastic I take a chunky curl from underneath my ponytail and wrap it around the elastic and use a bobby pin to fasten it at the base of my ponytail. It looks really cute, and I don't end up with a flat frizzy ponytail. this is the only way I can wear a ponytail almost everyday without feeling frumpy.

Hope that makes sense.. [/u]

Do you have any stockings (hosiery, pantyhose, whatever..)? If so, cut them up and use them as hair bands. It's a lot cheaper than buying them. Plus, they don't pull hair out!

That's a really neat idea. Working in food service a while back caused a lot of breakage because of the required ponytails... my hair is long and really curly, so getting elastics out of my hair was a painful experience.

I'll have to check these out.

Thanks for sharing! I'm recovering from a lot of damage from pulling my hair into a ponytail with elastics all the time. I also like the pantyhose idea!

Good Idea!
These bungee bands have never caused breakage but they're kind of pricey.

I couldn't dream of doing that to my hair even when it's straightened.

No kidding, right? Yikes! Although, he seemed to do it more gently than other videos I've seen. That is really neat to watch...I might have to try the pantyhose idea. I've been meaning to! I even have a drawer full of pantyhose that's just sitting there gathering dust.

It's a clothing store that started in Europe and is slowly making its way to the US. They have a lot of cool, european-esque clothes for really good prices. I got my pony tail holders at one near Milwaukee, but there should be a store locater at their website- www.hm.com HTH
