Is the Invisibobble worth the hype?

Invisibobble Hair ring review // Ella Was Here

Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all had a fabulous end of 2014 and do not forget to start 2015 with a big smile. The Invisibobble is a much-hyped product so I thought I would take a chance, buy it and try it out for you!

Invisibobble Hair ring review // Ella Was Here

The Invisibobble is ‘a traceless hair ring’ which can be use instead of a regular hair tie. It is made out of plastic eco-friendly material and can be recycled. I bought myself a set of 3 hair rings in the colour brown but they are available in a bunch of different colours. I personally like the shades close to my actual hair colour the most but they do have very bright neon colours available if you fancy something a bit more striking.


You are supposed to use the hair ring the exact same way as a regular hair tie and that is what I did. It was a bit strange stretching the Invisibobble in the beginning as I kept on thinking it would break or that it would not shrink to its original size. But I am pleased to be able to tell you that it has not broken yet, even after applying reasonable force. It shrinks after using it but not to its original size.

The most important feature of the Invisibobble is that it is traceless. You should be able to wear it in your hair all day without it leaving any kinks after removing it. Again, I was skeptical at first but it really does not leave any marks on your hair. That is pretty incredible, if you ask me!

Strong grip?

The Invisibobble’s grip is not as strong as a regular hair tie. I would not recommend using it for a braid as it will not stay on long enough. However, I like to use it to make a messy bun or a loose ponytail. It does not feel as tight and is, compared to some other hair ties, not painful for the scalp at all. I can whip my ponytail back and forth without it losing grip. And that is firm enough for me.


I ended up using it far more than I originally planned because I enjoyed them so much. The Invisibobble is, in my opinion, definitely worth the hype. You can buy a little set of 3 hair rings online at Feel Unique for 4.80 euros (or £3.75).

Have you used the Invisibobble?

Love, Ella

  • Great review! I’ve never heard of this hair wrap, but it sounds like a good investment. I hate when my hair gets a weird bump after being up! Also, very cute play on words with “januhairy”

    • I love them! They are kind of weird looking and I’m not a fan of the bright colours but this brown is perfect for me!

  • I really want these now, haha! Very informative post :)x

    • I was very skeptical at first because of all the hype around it. But they do really work!


  • I have seen these everywhere, but never really got the concept. Lovely review x


    • Me neither, so thought I would give them a try to see what all the fuzz was about 🙂


  • This is not something I would use personally, but I still found the blog posting interesting to read and informative. I will bear it in mind. One never knows when this kind of info might be useful…!

    • haha, Ray 🙂 Thanks for commenting on ever post!!

  • Sophie Smith

    I was looking at these so I’m glad I saw your review. I’m using a hook bobble at the moment I can’t remember their name haha. It’s better for when my hairs curly as it gets tangled but I’d love to try this


    • Interesting! I don’t have curly hair so don’t no the effect of these on curly hair!


  • I own the clear ones, the closest “color” to blonde you can get. And even though they are way better than usual hair bands, they still pull out some of my hair, so I use a clip more often.

    • Yes! I have noticed they don’t really have a colour similar to blonde, which is a shame! I actually don’t like clips but I am glad they work for you!

      Thanks for joining in Linda 🙂


  • Anna Megan

    I might have to try one 🙂


    • As they are really inexpensive, you definitely should!


  • My hairdressers have these and never sure whether to try one. Sometimes you do just want a loose hair band so I will get one next time. Great review xx

    • I was pleasantly surprised 😀 So maybe try one next time 🙂


  • I quite like these, I used to use them a lot when I had long hair – I like how they feel in my hair, not too tight but sometimes think they look a bit odd, like phone cable! x

    • Phone cable was exactly what I was thinking!

      • It also feels a bit like a phone cable! And that is why it probably was so weird to put it in my hair at first :).

  • It seems like an interesting product. I am always complaining about how rubber bands ruin my hair.

    • Well, you should try these then! Even if you don’t end up liking them they’re really inexpensive!


  • Hm, thats sounds pretty great. I have to wear my hair up every work day since i work in a lab and i have been considering these because they are supposed to be better for your hair. Did you notice less pulled out hairs with those? Exited for your Januhairy by the way. My hair is a constant source of annoyance and i love to get some good hints and product recommendations.

    • Yes they are, I’ve noticed way less pulled out hairs in fact!


  • You’ve settled it, I’m gonna buy some! I’ve been umming and ahhing for a while but I feel like I need this thing in my life! Great review!
