Find: Sleek, Dressy Hair Elastics for Mom

There are times when the classic ponytail needs a bit more panache. You’re beyond ribbons and do-dads, but a plain band seems too casual. These hair elastics are as simple as the basic black versions but with a touch of polish.

Subtle metallic gold and silver bands make these wear almost like jewelry. The brown and black versions are sleek and shiny without being juvenile or glittery.

This set is only $1.25 at Forever 21. Grab some for yourself and hide them away so you aren’t caught with nothing left but your daughter’s Hello Kitty hair bands.
