“I can't resist a bow, so I love the way Julia has created her hair ties which look as good on your wrist as in your hair. The colours are gorgeous too. Definitely the best non-crease hair ties I've found”

"Stretchy 'lingerie' ties your hair designed by a former fashion publicist."

We're thrilled to be able to bring New Yorker Julia Gabella's Bandtz (pronounced 'ban-dits') to the UK – they're the cutest hair ties we've seen. Julia had struggled to find pretty but robust ties for her hair; so the former fashion publicist started making her own from vintage trims, and inevitably the requests began to come in from friends .. That's how the Bandtz story started – Julia calls her ties 'lingerie for hair' because they are made from lacy trims made for fine delicates – and it has expanded to offer a rainbow of colours and many styles to secure different looks from ponytails to plaits.

The team at MyShowcase HQ are so addicted to Bandtz that we also like to wear a row of them on our wrists ..

"I wanted to make my ties look pretty and delicate but be durable in holding hair without causing damage, as regular bands can, or creasing the hair shaft".


1. If you prefer to tie back your hair while sleeping, use a Bandtz tie to avoid waking up with kinks.

2. Keep a couple of Radiant Orchid Hot-Pink Bandtz in your handbag and you'll never have to scrabble around in the bottom of your bag again.

3. Secure a top-knot or bun with a Bandtz bow tie to make the style girly.
