About Us

Introducing the Emio Hair Tie, a new innovative way of putting your hair up fast, easy, and super secure. Never before seen hair tie, it is patent pending double loop design and made from multi-strand stretch cord that provides the right amount of tension to keep your ponytail where you want it and keep it there until you are ready to let your hair down. It is handmade in the USA from quality materials to last for months of use.

Enjoy a long-lasting worry free ponytail that eliminates problems created by other hair ties, such as:

  • Broken hair ties

  • Pulling out chunks of hair when removing the hair tie

  • Sliding down when running or moving

  • Ruining curls or hair do's

  • Constant loosening

  • Sagging

  • Tugging both sides

  • Stretch out hair ties

Emio hair ties will go on and off loose. You choose the tension or "how tight" depending on the activity or hair style. By wrapping around and not pulling  your hair through over and over it will virtually prevent the clump of hair being wrapped around your hair tie, thus saving you from yanking out your hair.

Origin Story:

The idea to design a better hairband began after I decided to go back to school to become a nurse. My wife went back to being full-time nurse and I became a full-time student and stay-at-home Dad for my son and daughter.

After months of struggling to do my daughter's hair with regular hair ties and silicone bands, which I broke often, I asked my wife if there was any other way or any other product to help me make it easier. She said, "It is just what everyone uses and how it's always been done." I said there has to be a better way. She gave a list of things to avoid in my new endeavor to design a better hairband. My first attempts at solving this issue did not make sense to my wife, so I returned my focus back to finishing nursing school. The problems that I had with hair ties and bands went to the back of my mind.

Years later while I was on paternity with our fourth child, I saw another broken hairband that made me revisit the idea of designing a better hairband. I told my wife about an idea of wrapping the ponytail, my wife said, "Make me one and I will try it." I made one that kind of worked but she said it was difficult to put it in her hair. I wanted it to be easier, so I went back to the drawing board and developed the double loop system. She took my new design and put it in her hair and it worked!

I took the working design and added a bead and better stretch cord. She looked at the new design, put it in her hair and she loved it! I then put a ponytail in my daughters hair. I had a beautiful ponytail in 5 seconds without struggling or breaking the hair tie.

We knew we had something special and that we wanted to share it with everyone!
