If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning.
