Phone Cord Hair Grips

Phone Cord Hair Grips

All the rage now with the younger set, these coiled hair ties are a true novelty. Fused at the ends to make a ring, the plastic coils are reminiscent of telephone cords (or wires, as some of the older generation would call them). The person who thought of them is a genius. Who would’ve imagined that something this functional could be so trendy?

I like their cheerful range of colours, as well as their ability to grasp hair in a more stylish manner than regular elastic bands and scrunchies – their smooth but serrated edges give bound hair a touch of interest.

They hold tresses well for a decent period of time but will lose their elasticity after extended use. With prices that range from S$1 for one to S$2 for four, you can easily find them at most local shops that carry hair accessories. I bought mine from Livia & Sheen located at Square 2.

      Hi BB,

      They’re fun to use. They don’t snag badly but scrunchies are still more hair-friendly.

    Hi! I’m looking for hair ties that don’t leave dents in my hair cos my hair is rebonded & I’m really afraid of dents… Do these work? Or Twistband? Thanks in advance!

      Hi Bell,

      These will leave dents. You’re better off using Twistbands (I use them on my rebonded hair). :)
