But then the bow is really no good if the rubber band breaks.
My mom still puts those little rubber bands in to hold the pony tail, then puts the tiny pony-o's over the rubber band so the bows last longer, and the pony tail stays ...at least a little longer since her dog always goes and finds a nice quiet place the roll her head along the floor until the bow is out
