As someone with a rather unruly ponytail and tons of hair, traditional hair elastics fall out within 30 seconds of my workout and leave me with a serious headache. There's nothing better than when style and functionality meet in the middle; from my first time trying out Twistbands, I've been hooked. These comfortable hair ties keep my hair held back and out of my way without leaving a huge ridge in my hair once removed. I'm partial to these new Spring Bright Metallics ($13 for six) that I could easily rock on my wrist all day to remind me to head out for my run.
