Functional & Fashionable?! Yes Please!

Hey guys!

Once again, I’m finding that the only time I really have to get on here is Friday afternoons once I’m done with classes, my workout, and lunch. It stinks I can only get on here once a week lately, but hey, I guess that’s better than nothing, right?

Anyway, I have a slightly different sort of post for ya this week!


Through Amanda Russell, I was lucky enough to be contacted by Julia Gabella, the founder of Bandtz, “the first line of hair ties that are elegant enough to double as jewelry… the perfect solution for fitness fashionistas!”

Each dainty piece is made from lingerie trim, making them not only supportive for your hair, but also a super cute statement for your wrist.

The online shop has pages and pages of unique, delicate bands. There are different collections, each with tons of colors, sizes, and styles to fit anyone’s taste.

Whether you like bright and fun, sophisticated and sexy, or sleek and simple, there’s a style (or two or three…) for you!

I was fortunate enough to be sent a sampling of a few different collections, and my roommates and I were so excited when we saw how cute they all are!

I’m kind of obsessed with the ‘dotted’ collection and have worn a gray one in my hair for the past few days. It held my fine, slippery hair through two full days of classes, and two windy runs! I was surprised how well it kept my ponytail in – it didn’t slide like most elastics do.

I gave a couple to some of my roommates and so far, so good!

How cute does that look?

Not only are these hair ties super cute in your hair and on your wrist, they really do work. No matter what texture your hair is, they stay in place all day long. My friend (pictured above) has thick, straight hair and she had just as positive results as I did with my thin, wavier hair.

They cost 15 dollars per pack of three… Yes, I would consider that a bit pricey for hair ties, but honestly I have to say they’re worth it. I struggle finding elastics that don’t slide out, but don’t leave a kink in my hair, either.

Also, I don’t know about you, but I feel ‘naked’ when I don’t have one on my wrist, but if I’m wearing a nice outfit or at a formal event, wearing an ugly elastic doesn’t exactly look right. That’s why I love these – because they actually enhance an outfit, rather than take away from it.

Seriously though, what’s better than something that’s not only functional, but fashionable, too?

They’re a perfect gift for a fitness fanatic / fashion forward friend, or just a little treat for yourself!
