Hi! My name is Marielle and I am Miss San Diego 2019.
My social impact initiative is Going Purple for Alzheimer’s in honor of my late grandmother, Mary Ann, who passed away after a 4 year battle with Alzheimer’s.
Kini Bands is the perfect partner for my platform because it’s as simple as wearing purple to support the fight against Alzheimer’s. I've educated many people on this disease just because wearing purple struck up a conversation.
When you get a compliment on your bands, I know you'll help by contributing to the awareness!
Kini Bands will donate 20% of the proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Association to help my fight against this terrible disease. With your help, we can all be part of a world without Alzheimer’s.
These bands that I hand-selected for you are stylish, comfortable, and the perfect every day accessory. And of course purple, so you are truly helping with awareness and finding a cure every time you wear them.
Why do Kini Bands hold up longer than other hair ties? All of our products are made from swim and yoga material, which is made to last through workouts, water exposure, and sweat. On top of that, each hair tie is made with a silicon elastic that will never break or stretch out, since they're encased in fabric. Finally, they're machine-stitched, and not fused together like most elastics so they won't come apart no matter how many times you use them.
Can I wear my Kini Bands in the water? Each piece is made to withstand the elements of the sun, salt, chlorine and water. With that being said, prolonged exposure to these things will eventually have an effect on the metal finish, giving them a tarnished look compared to their original shiny coating.
Are Kini Bands safe for my hair? Yes, your hair won't get caught in Kini Bands like many hair elastics that are thin, rough, or fused together. The metal charm on the band also will not catch on your hair. Lastly, the smooth surface and flat nature of the bands will reduce crimping.
Can I wash Kini Bands? Yes, you can wash any of our styles. We recommend hand-washing, and air-drying them to allow them to last as long as possible.
Where are Kini Bands made? All of our products are locally made in San Diego. Oceanside (North County) to be specific! Since we are a small company, they are handmade, tagged, and shipped from one place by just 1-2 people, depending on the day.
How long will my order take to ship? Because your order is handmade with love, please allow up to one week to receive your Kini Bands in the mail. We do our best to ship items the next day, and strive to have the bands in your hands and int your hair as soon as possible.
How do I return or exchange part of my order? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the issue, and you'll receive an RA number to send your item back for store credit or a refund, depending on the condition and purchase date of your item.
