Hairbanglez (Hairbanglez.com) is a brand new product launching this month (January 2012). Here’s the scoop: Almost every girl never leaves with a hair elastic wrapped around her wrist. When you’re having a bad hair day or just need to put it up for convenience, that elastic on your wrist is indispensable! Unfortunately, that same hair elastic that saves you in a pinch can leave you with an unsightly red mark. Hairbanglez is a chic way to carry your spare hair elastic. Each glossy lucite plastic Hairbangle has an indented groove designed to hold one elastic hair band. You simply pop the band in and out.
We did our own mini-consumer research (very mini!) by sharing the bangles with 3 different ages (30-something, 20-something, and teen-something.) The consensus was that this product really does solve the “red-marked wrist problem.” Those who already wear regular bangles thinks it’s a great idea; those with normally naked wrists thought it was clever but not compelling enough to make them change their habits and start wearing bangles.
BTW, the Left Brain wanted to evaluate the elastic limit of bands worn with and without the Hairbanglez to determine the yield strength of the elastic material, ie., if the relationship between stress and strain had become nonlinear. (I think someone’s been watching too much Big Bang Theory!)
What do YOU think. Would you wear an extra bangle to get rid of the pony tail holder around your wrist? Leave a comment and share your thoughts with the rest of the Beauty Brains community.
