The GEMSTONE HAIRTIES are enlarged ponytail holders made especially for those with thick, textured hair, locs, Afros, naturally curly hair or braid and twists.  They may double as necklaces if you are not quite ready to pull your hair up! These flexible, simple ponytail holders are fantastic for keeping your mane off your neck and back. The ponytail holder is perfect for UPDO's, or simply pulled back behind your head.  This elastic band may be wrapped around your locs several times without the feeling of tightness. These even look great when you stack them!
