DIARY: TOP GEAR - Hairbands

If you’ve never owned a hairband then the chances are you’re a bloke - or a girl with a touch of the Sinead O’Connors.

If you’ve never owned a hairband then the chances are you’re a

bloke - or a girl with a touch of the Sinead O’Connors.



Failing that, it’s quite probable you’re wearing a hairband now.



But these are not glorified elastic bands, they are invaluable pieces of

equipment for anyone with hair over six inches in length.



In a random office poll, results revealed that hairband-using women

remove and replace their bands at least ten times a day. The ritual

mainly occurs during washing, teeth brushing, dialing a phone number,

reading, talking on the phone, eating, participating in sport and

putting the phone down.



The most popular points of placement are in the hair (obviously) and on

the wrist.



However, the place you are most likely to encounter hairbands is on the

floor - that means on the street, the Tube, the park, the pub and

anywhere else you can think of. In fact, they seem to spend as much time

on the floor as in the hair and on the wrist combined.



In the poll, this phenomenon was attributed to two things: slippery hair

(boys) and sub-standard elastic (girls).





Hairbands - around 50p



Available from Boots, Superdrug and hair emporia nationwide.
