For those of lower intelligence, like myself, these are called hair ties or bands. The price at one local Walgreens' was $3.00 while across town they were $4.50.
I found a few sizes and some colored (earth tone and bright) sets. On another thread here, I read the elastic bands come with or without a black rubber strip. I didn't look for those. There was one set marked "jelly" rather than "elastic", so I bought one ($3.50) this afternoon.
