Hair ties are one of those universal products that you might not put much thought into choosing. In a pinch, I'll use just about any hair tie available to me. That doesn't mean that some hair ties aren't simply better than others, though, but it's hard to spot the difference between a good and bad hair tie. 

What to look for in a hair tie:

A good hair tie shouldn't have any metal or plastic pieces that could snag and cause hair damage. You should also look for a soft material like silk if you're aiming to prevent damage as much as possible. Coiled hair ties are good for preventing marks in your hair
