Why should Justin Bieber carry anything with him when his fans are so willing to give?
This delightful video making its way around Twitter shows the platinum popstar suavely plucking a hair tie right off the wrist of an adoring fan right in the middle of his Purpose concert.
Watch as Justin struggles to get his hair out of his face, then reaches down from the stage in what looks like an attempt to grab a fan's hand. It was, however, much more transactional than that. Biebs zoned in the hairband among the hands waving in the audience, then removed it from the girl's wrist in two seconds.

Justin seems to be having issues with his hair and ponytail holders lately. He even asked a fan at his concert in San Jose last week to help him put his hair up.
This task took her awhile, because obviously it's not easy to recreate Justin's baby ponytail look. She had to wrap the hairband around his hair like 20 times to make it work and then he told her, "I feel like it's a side ponytail."
