Very soft material that grips my overly fine, straight hair well (my hair is only medium length though - couple inches below collarbone). Seems like a flat elastic band inside. 2 loops around hair = low and relaxed; 3 loops can hold a high ponytail. Comes with a large black plastic ring but tbh not sure how to use it.
Only thing is, I do think the colors are a bit duller/muted/dirtier look in person than in the picture.
