Most Helpful Positive Review So cute, fun, and a real improvement on regular hairties!
So I have long hair-mid-back length. It's long, fine, blonde, and slightly wavy. And there's a LOT of it. I'm all about that mermaid hair life, which means I also CONSTANTLY need a hair tie on my wrist. (I especially like tossing my hair up into a bun when it's semi-dry to get some heatless waves.) My mom always gives me grief for having that ugly hair tie on my wrist, though. And my hair ALWAYS gets a crease in it when I leave it up for more than five minutes. Plus, traditional hair ties really compact the hair down, which isn't so cute when I'm going for a more casual, undone look.
These really do solve all those issues. I've actually tried two colors of these, the clear and the "Mint to Be" shade, and both are very cute. (One came in a beauty box and one came in my Vacay VB, which was super exciting!) They almost look like jewelry on my wrist, not like I made a mistake halfway through getting ready. They're slightly looser than traditional hair ties, so they don't dig in as much-which also means that they don't smash the hair so tightly together, AND almost completely eliminates creasing. But the coiled shape means that it grips your hair TIGHT. It will NOT slip out.
When I take them out of my hair, they do tend to be a little bit stretched out, but they return to their original shape pretty quickly. They'll never be as small as they were straight out of the box, but all of my original ones are still useful (which is, again, more than you can say for a traditional hair tie).
My only negative is that they're too bulky to use on braids. I've had to do it a few times because French braids are one of my favorite hairstyles for working out, and these were the only hair tie I had on my wrist that day. They're just difficult to get tight enough, and if you loop them around as many times as you need to, you get this big bulky knot of phone cord at the end of your braid. (Which then ends up digging into my back in savasana). Overall, though, I love these.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just another hair tie to lose
The raving reviews I read led me to believe this would be the last hair tie I will ever need. And honestly I do like that it hold up when wet so I can wear it in the pool with out tearing my hair out and also enjoy that it leaves no trace. But it does stretch out and won't return to the original state with extended use. It is also extremely uncomfortable to wear on your wrist as it leaves marks and honestly looks extremely tacky. Not to mention it is unprofessional looking so I cannot wear it to work. And this also won't save you from getting headaches or keep your hair put all day. It stretches out and your hair will still be pulled enough in the back that you can feel the release in tension when you let it down. Not a bad idea though. I received this complimentary for testing purposes through influencer.

I love these because they add volume and keep your ponytail in place. But they do leave a crease!
I will buy this again!
Kailey from Silver Spring
No more hair caught in ponytail!
Gabby from san diego
These stretch and are able to hold my thick, long hair. They reduce the number of headaches I get from wearing my hair up too. I have purchased this product before, and they lasted far longer than any other hair elastic/scrunchie I have used!
kcasares1214 from Texas
I love these! I use them when I go to bed to put my hair up in a high pony and I don't wake up to kinks or weird bed head. I let these out in the morning when I wake up and all I have is volume on the top of my head. They do not pull your hair or strands. They are easy to take off and put on and they stay.
Still have crease
Brooke from Wisconsin
Bought this because I thought it was supposed to not leave a crease in my hair after taking it out... not the case. Still a noticeable crease, and I have thick hair. I like it otherwise and it will last much longer and stay cleaner than a normal hair tie.
Love emm, random beneficial buy
lovie from California

and I love em honestly cant go back to hair ties, these r amazing and their invisibobble Bobby pin is fab too.
Not Worth the Hype, in My Opinion
Brittany from Columbus, Ohio
I'm really bummed that this product doesn't perform like I thought it would. I'm going to be returning it. I wasn't impressed at all by how it goes in and out of my hair. It's annoying how carefully I need to remove it to prevent damage. It also doesn't hold my hair that well either. I slept wearing it for the first time, and woke up to my hair having come out all on the bottom half, hanging all over my neck. Worse yet, it left a sizeable and visible mark in my hair. I wash my hair every other day, so the quality of my second-day hair is huge to me. I still have no idea what to use to not get a line in my hair, because this product definitely isn't it. It's possible that your hair type affects it. My hair is moderately fine, so maybe if I had thicker and coarser hair it'd be creaseless.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
Sara from Utah
These are amazing they don't crease my hair. I love wearing them to bed, because they don't crease my hair and help with styling the next day!
nik from texas
high quality, worth the price, only thing I use in my hair.
Becca from Bossier
It isn't a bad product, but I had to cut off a good three inches in one section of my hair because it got knotted so bad...
Makeup junkie from Milwaukee
I tried this because with summer coming,I do a lot of pony tails to keep cooler. I hate when I pull my hair back and my pony falls pulling down the top of my hair which I like to have a little volume at. This keeps the pony high and doesn't drag down the volume on top.
targetaquired from Winston-Salem, NC
Bought on a whim and now I can't live without. I wear my hair up most every day, and definitely most nights. In the morning, you can't tell I slept with it in a jacked-up bun. I've put my hair in ponytail fresh from the shower, took it down 6 hours later and NO-HAIR-IN-PONYTAIL-KINKS!! Truly a magical product -- can't endorse enough.
Shrink back down by soaking in HOT water.
Great alternative to a hair tie
Sharoninflorida from Tampa, FL
I recently purchased a pack of these from the Ulta store. I really like the way it felt on my head and it held my hair up which is very fine. The reason I did not give it a higher rating is because it still caused my hair to kink which is advertises that it doesn't. Overall it is a great item.
Steph from NC
Did not hold hair well and still managed to leave creases in my hair. Not better or worse than hair ties in my current rotation.
It's a cool product I would recommend this to anybody
Susie Q from South Carolina
I use this product in my hair. It's really great it stays in your hair and doesn't fall out. What I don't like about it is that you have to pull it out so it's like pulling your hair out.
Love love love
Bhorton from North Little Rock, Arkansas
I always stretch out the regular hair ties and then have to buy more. So far these have not stretched out at all. I mean I wear these sun up to sun down & my hair is pretty long and very thick. Don't even know if I have to buy more but maybe for some cute colors. An extra tie around holds up for my morning run or chasing the kids too.
Urania60 from Round Rock, TX
Ever since I discovered these, I love them. I have 4 colors.
great hair ties
Juliet1236 from Macomb, Michigan
Great hair ties for all hair types. These will hold your hair in place and not leave a kink in your hair. Also gentle on hair, when you pull out the hair tie it does not pull out strands of your hair with it. So glad I bought these, only reason I didn't give 5 stars is they do stretch out a little quicker then I would like so I have to replace them over time.
Awesome hair ties
Monica from Tuscola,Il
Love these have tons can't live with out
Haven't used "traditional" hair ties since these
Abby from Wisconsin
Hair holds well! And no headaches from hair being held back too tight! I wish Ulta sold the nude color though, it matches better with my hair color.
If you find that yours are getting stretched out or misshaped, place them in hot water for a bit. They bounce right back.
Would buy again. Holds all day with super long hair!
Lazlo from Kansas City, KS
I wrap my hair 3 times around with this baby and it holds all day as long as you place it well the first time.
THESE ARE GREAT!!
Jodie Jo from Las Vegas NV
My sister swears by these so I bought her a few packs for Christmas and since she likes them so much and says they NEVER leave a dent in your hair after wearing, I went ahead and bought one for myself as well. I like them a lot. They don't pull your hair when wearing and don't even feel like you have them in cause they are that comfortable. Great buy!
Great hair tie
MsD from Naples
Holds hair snug but does not tangle
sunniebunnie from FL
I have purchased three boxes of these over the past year. all in different colors. these work great for my thin fine here.
Best hair accessory ever
Jewelyea from Las Vegas
These are the best thing ever created. I have straight hair and I hate how hair ties leave that indent. Until I discovered the invisibobble. I have the clear and black ones. I use them for when I go to the gym and it does not disappoint. Highly recommend!
