Unless you're sporting a pixie cut, slapping a hair tie onto your wrist in preparation for a midday updo is just another step in your daily routine. However, sometimes there just isn't enough time in the morning to hunt down one of those elusive elastics, and while the thought of an elastic-free hairstyle might seem daunting, the pros at New York Fashion Week just proved it's simpler than ever.

While backstage, hairstylists were grabbing whatever they could find to style their models' hair into something runway-worthy.
