The World’s Best Hair Tie® to Dominate Women’s Accessories


HUTTO, TX, June 12, 2020PRO Hair Tie has re-invented traditional ponytail holders, creating a silicone band that will not slip or damage your hair through everyday use and high-performance activities.

With a patented design, their non slip hair ties paired with an easy-release clasp ensures both a secure hold and effortless removal. Company owner and inventor, Willis A. Yehl, saw a gap in the hair accessories market in the midst of his eighth year running a business focused on cheerleading training equipment, Stunt Stand® brands.

“The idea developed after a discussion with a mom about the difficulties of taking out her daughter’s ponytail after training and competitions,” Yehl explains. “I soon realized how many of my friends and colleagues would redo their hair during sports, or even cut out hair ties after cheer or dance performances. With my contacts and experience in manufacturing, I knew I could find a solution. There had to be a better way, and a way to keep focused on sports.”

After two years of testing more than 50 prototypes, the final design of the PRO Hair Tie was launched in April 2019. One of his main consultants in the process, Edith George, is a former competitive cheerleader and coach who still maintains an active lifestyle. George has tested every prototype to its limits, providing feedback and support.

“Working on this project with Yehl was an exercise in faith through the prototype stage. I’ve never had a hair tie that managed to keep my hair securely in place during a run, or practice, and I definitely put the prototypes through high-stress testing! With the final design, going from morning workouts to business meetings and not having to worry about the kinks, breakage, or damage — it’s truly been amazing. It’s now my go-to hair tie.” — Edith George.

With a successful launch in the competitive cheerleading market, PRO Hair Tie branched out into the running industry and has now reached globally with active females and athletes alike. Active women competing in sports such as soccer, basketball, softball, volleyball, swimming, cross-country, and yoga have fallen in love with the functional, yet sleek design. Yehl is determined to bring this revolutionary design to all women, aiming to make moms who throw it into a bun or athletes on the field, beam, court, or in the pool never worry about their hair tie slipping or ripping out hair.
