"When it comes to hair ties, I'm a pretty picky person. I hate the classic ties that dig into your wrists and I wouldn't be caught dead with a regular ol' elastic in my ponytail. However, my hair is super fine, meaning it slips out of almost anything I put in it, so just any old alternative won't do. Insert: Kitsch hair ties. These coiled ties wrap around my tresses and actually stay put until I'm ready to let down my locks (you know, like Rapunzel). Also, they don't leave indents in my hair, which is a blessing since my hair is very prone to getting bent out of shape." —Alice Prendergast
