Now that we’re all well-aware of the current economic recession, there’s a lot of buzz about redefining luxury. I heard the term, “glamping,” or glamour camping thrown around at the New York International Gift Fair. But, could the answer be much easier? Much more practical? Think: upscale ponytail holders.

Banish tired hair elastics and treat yourself to something pretty and well-designed, a Di Manno Designs ponytail holder. These chic hair accessories will give your ‘do a sense of polish. Treat yourself to a small indulgence and pick up an exquisite leather holder embellished with Swarovski crystals. Go ahead, you deserve it.

Di Manno’s will take you from work to cocktails. There’s a rock-n-roll collection for you and more tame holders for your conservative sister. Di Manno’s holders are leather covered elastic bands that go around your hair and snap easily into place. Currently there are five collections: Leather, Patent Leather, Exotic Skin, Canvas and Crystal.

If, like me, you’re sporting shorter hair these days but don’t want to miss out, then check out Di Manno’s wrist bands, which are the same elegant designs and fine quality materials as her ponytail holders.
