Daylight Robbery: Expensive hair elastics

hair elastics

So, these are $288.

We’ll just let that sink in for a moment, shall we?

In their defence, they’re not actually hair elastics. They’re bracelets. Yeah, like all hair elastics are sometimes “bracelets”, when you pull them out of your pony and stick them on your wrists.

These ones really are supposed to be bracelets, though, and the reason they’re so expensive is that the metal part is 18K gold.

That really doesn’t make it much better, does it?

    Do they function as hair scrunchies, or are they just bracelets? Wouldn’t that large gold metal part get caught in the hair?

    I checked the product page and it is even worse: the price is for one piece, not even for the whole bundle!

    I am french and live near Paris. Everything is expensive in Colette! Even a bottle of water! I have seen them and they are sold in a box on which it is written “” everything is going to be amazing”….
    Too hipster for me!

    Laughing so much right now, probably just like the designer is when someone actually buys that crap.
