We love these Barcelona Bands! We’ve taken strong elastic (yet super comfy) and coiled them into a hair band that will secure any ponytail or messy bun! They won’t make a dent in your hair and have such a fun spiral style! They’re strong enough to twist around thick hair but gentle on your scalp. Since it’s a set of five, you can stash one in your car, bag, desk, etc. They won’t pull or break your hair, nor cause a headache like traditional hair ties or rubber bands!
