About Maria Shireen®
Maria Shireen® is the first-and-only jewelry accessory company to combine the function of elastic hair ties with the stylish appeal of a bracelet. Created by visionaries Arni and Shireen Thor, Maria Shireen hair tie bracelets have revolutionized the way women utilize and keep track of elastic hair ties across the fashion, beauty, accessories, and health industries. The hair tie bracelet is designed to create a unique piece of jewelry that keeps easy-to-lose accessories on lock and comfortably on-hand. The sleek slip-on bracelet has a channel that holds thick or thin bands in place, alleviating the pressure from the elastic around the wrist while giving the blasé hair tie a bold makeover. Maria Shireen hair tie bracelets are available in a variety of designs to suit a range of styles and lifestyles.
The Maria Shireen® patent-protected hair tie bracelet holds more utility patents on jewelry bracelets than any other company in the world, and has been featured in over 100 print, online and broadcast media outlets. Industry recognitions include Red Herring North America Top 100 (2017) and Red Herring Global Top 100 (2017). Shireen Thor was awarded a Stevie® international award for Female Entrepreneur of the Year (2017) among other Stevie Award recognitions and was also a top finalist in her local community as San Diego's 2017 Business Women of the Year. Since 2015, Maria Shireen® has expanded sales of its bracelets to over 45 countries, growing into a multi-million dollar business through e-commerce alone.
