Emi-Jay Hair Ties


As much as I try to let these long locks of mine hang loosely, my day-to-day grind calls for pulling my hair back regularly. Thank goodness for Emi-Jay hair ties because I no longer feel like my ponytails and braids are totally blah.

I love these ties! The Los Angeles teenagers who started Emi-Jay have created ties in almost every color under the sun, and a portion of the proceeds go towards Locks of Love. (Wow. Makes my high school years seem kind of LAME.)

Shocker, my favorite ties are from the metallic collection…not as boring as black, but still able to easily coordinate with everything I wear.

I have one pack of the metallic collection to give away! (Colors are Vanilla Beige, Gold Medal, Snowflake Silver, Gunmetal Grey and Bronze.) Just leave a comment on this post before November 8th at 6pm PST letting me know what your favorite color collection is and you’ll be entered to win! Good luck!
