TELETIES Origin Story
Like many other people with long hair, Lindsay Muscato found that her normal hair ties were not working properly. When she was young, she found herself always redoing her ponytail on the soccer field because it wouldn’t hold up during high activity. As she grew older, not only were hair ties ineffective at holding hair in place, but the materials used in the hairband tangled hair easily, causing split ends and ripping it out. These problems continued throughout the next decade, and Muscato worked for years to design a prototype that would best fix the many, frequent malfunctions of the common hair tie.
After many trials of her homemade prototypes, using different materials, sizes, and strategies, she settled on the signature TELETIES design. Muscato launched TELETIES in 2016 from her garage with help from her friends — while raising her two kids. Thanks to the product’s numerous 5 star reviews and enthusiastic social media support, she’s been able to expand her collection to include other hair accessories and dozens of colors.
