WE USE THEM, and we lose them. But what do we call them?

These things you tie your hair back with cause a lot of stress. There are far too many names for it. If you’re from the West, chances are you call it a go go. But what about those who wrap a few bobbins around their wrist? Or the people who insist on calling it a bobble (hey, you exist).

Let’s get to the bottom of this once and for all.

What do you think? – What’s the proper name for a hair tie?

Poll Results:

A bobbin (2151)

A go go (604)
A... hair tie, stupid (422)
