I wear my hair in ponytails all the time. It grew pretty long this summer and instead of dealing with early morning blow-drying/styling I tend to just pull it up with an elastic. I’ve always thought that a basic black hair tie was the best way to go for work ponytails – or if I was feeling really fancy I’d take a strand of hair from the ponytail to wrap around the elastic to hide it.
And then last week on a whim I bought two metal hair cuffs in gold & silver off of Amazon for $6 each. I tried the silver one out today by doing a side part and low ponytail and then adding the cuff as the hair tie. And I absolutely love the result! It’s like non-tacky work appropriate hair jewelry!
Because these hair cuffs worked out so well – I might invest in a few of these colored ones too. Yay for lazy hair fun!
And since we’re discussing parts of me you can’t see – I’m wearing these silver ball stud earrings (7mm) with this outfit as well. 🙂
Random note – this outfit is exactly the same (shoes, skirt, jewelry) as this August 8th post except for a different top. But because the shirt is such a different color the then bright cardigan – I feel like it looks totally different.
Got a request for a photo of the cuff in my hair (you can see the earrings here too):
