Are you looking for stylish bridesmaid hair ties that don’t stretch out? Have you heard about the hair ties that look like phone cords and curl back into place with an easy trick? Or are you wondering where to buy hair ties for bridesmaids to put inside tote bags, as bachelorette party favors, or as a unique bridesmaid hair tie proposal? Well, you’ve come to the right place! We found cute hair elastics to help you “tie the knot” in a festive way with party favors that are extremely useful.
HAIR TIES THAT LOOK LIKE BRACELETS
Have you ever been somewhere and you forgot to bring or wear a hair tie? Major pain in the you-know-what. I like to think this is what encouraged this new trend of bridesmaid hair ties: having a functional hair wrap you can wear around your wrist. These hair ties that look like bracelets can be worn anywhere, and when you put them in your hair, they don’t crease like a typical hair elastic. Or break. Or pull. Or damage your hair! Talk about a good idea.
Well, that and the whole 90’s themed scrunchie craze coming back in style. I wish I saved mine, they were awesomely neon. People also enjoy how these are hair ties that won’t leave a crease or don’t leave marks on your wrist… you know the kind I’m talking about, ladies!
We began seeing bridesmaid hair ties explode as favors on Etsy a few years back. They are affordable to make, cheap to buy, and often come with cute cardboard backing that reads, “Thanks for helping us ‘tie’ the knot” or “to have and to hold your hair back”, or something similar.
Then, fast forward a few wedding seasons, and BOOM. Hair tie city. We’re seeing bridesmaid hair ties of all kinds, some with cute prints like cacti and anchors, others with stylish colors in hot pink and gold foil, and then there’s the funny bachelorette party hair tie favors with wine glasses or ‘beach hair, don’t care’ wording for themed parties.
As someone who swears by wearing her hair in a top knot, bun, or — um, my crazy quarantine hairstyle that, thankfully, Andrew still finds wildly alluring (ha!) — I find hair ties incredibly useful so these are my favorite favors right now.
These bridesmaid hair ties make a really fun addition to your bridesmaid tote bags on the day of the wedding, pair brilliantly with getting ready outfits for your bridal party, and can even be customized in color to match your bridesmaids dresses. The key here: customization. I never knew hair tie elastics could offer so much personalization, but they do and we’re loving it. The best way to give these as a fun bachelorette party favor? Leave them out for guests to grab as they hold their hair back — well, hopefully in a more fun way than a totally hungover way, if you get my drift. :)
So, I did a bunch of digging because I love hair tie favors, and I found the best ones: from velvet scrunchies (yes, they’re a thing!) to fun patterned hair ties that look like bracelets, you’ll see them all right here! They’re SUPER cheap, too, which is a huge bonus.
OK — let’s get to the hair elastics YOU will wow your bridal party with. Who knew bridesmaid hair ties were such a thing, and yet, so cute? Enjoy!
Bridesmaid Hair Ties
Here are the top places to buy bridal party hair ties for your crew! We’re also including info on what makes them the best, i.e. hair ties that don’t crease, hair ties that won’t break or damage hair, etc.
1. Velvet Scrunchie Hair Tie Favors
First, let’s start with scrunchies. I mean, these aren’t just any scrunchies. They’re made with velvet! These are handmade by SymbolicImports.
You will also like these alternate scrunchie favors by BlueEyedThreads in slightly different styles.
2. Hair Tie Favors That Don’t Stretch Out
These are the unique hair tie favors that don’t stretch out! You probably notice these coil style hair ties that look like phone cords; they’re not just cool looking, but they offer more functionality, too. Unlike regular hair ties that can stretch out and eventually get tossed away, you just pop this coil hair tie in a cup of hot water, then remove it and blast it with a hairdryer. These hair tie favors won’t stretch out and instead will shrink right back to their original size. How sweet is that? I love the color combinations here! By CheriArome.
You can shop these styles here.
As an alternate style, these cord hair ties are made to look like a diamond ring with a personalized cardstock; it is wrapped in plastic, making it easy to give as favors for bridal showers or bachelorette parties. By PartySprinklesCo.
3. Hair Tie Favors That Look Like Bracelets
These adorable blush pink hair ties (other colors available, too, if pink isn’t your jam) are the kind that can be worn like bracelets. These hair ties won’t leave creases; they’re great for bachelorette bashes so you always have a hair tie, close at hand. By Love Mia + Co.
Simple ‘thank you’ hair ties like these work great as bridal shower favors, too.
4. Bachelorette Party Hair Ties
These are the cutest hair tie favors for bachelorette parties! As an added bonus, these are the type of bridesmaid hair ties that prevent breakage, unlike classic hair elastics that always seem to pull hair out when they’re removed. These hair ties are individually themed to match your party, whether you’re grabbing the gals to ‘flamingle’ with a flamingo themed bachelorette party, planning a final fiesta, or heading to Charleston, Vegas, or getting on a boat for a nautical bachelorette party! These are the style of hair ties that won’t break hair. There’s a little bit of everything you need from these two top shops: PeachPoppyCo. and GoldandGlamour, both displayed below.
These no-crease elastics from Peach Poppy Co. include our faves: a final fiesta, western-themed, and New Orleans bachelorette party hair ties.
If you’re looking for a bridesmaid hair tie proposal, these are exceptionally cute! You can choose from over 64 colors and styles from here.
