Finding the best hair accessory to keep you cool and that can last through a workout is never easy. It has to keep your hair out of your face, off your neck, and stay put through your entire sweat session. And while the standard black band got us through a tough spot before, they look drab hanging lifeless from our wrists and aren’t always the easiest to take out. So for your hair’s sake and for yours, let’s switch it up with three great alternatives that won’t damage your hair, keep you cool, will look great on your wrist. Click through to the notes to get the details. –– Michelle Rotbart

Invisibobble – The Traceless Hair Ring

Inspired by a phone cord, this innovative hair tie was developed in order to leave your hair without knots, dents, or breakage. Its design is also water repellent, anti-allergic, and anti-bacterial, so you can say goodbye to headaches and split ends. It’s cute enough for throwing your hair up into an up do and strong enough for high-energy activity.




Condition Culture – Knotties

Knotties are a strong, no-crease and no- snag hair tie made of nylon and elastic and are perfect for throwing in your gym bag or keeping on your wrist for last minute ponytails. This tie promises it won’t cause headaches when wearing throughout the day and adds a nice pop of color to your arm.



Sephora Collection – Snag Free Hair Elastics

This hair elastic is made of a unique fiber so it’s easy to glide off your tendrils without tugging or pulling. It’s great for keeping your hair off your neck and out of your face during the gym or in the summer heat. Best yet, it comes in several different colors so it’s easily concealed in your hair.
