Now that your hair is in check, keep your makeup essentials tidy with Birchbox's ikat print Cosmetics Bag

Birchbox Breakdown

We love to get creative with our hair, which is why we’re crazy about these hip jumbo barrettes. You can wear them in a million different ways—jazz up ponytails and messy buns, or just use them to cinch a half-up style. Each duo comes with one lime green and one gold clip.

How it Works

These are just like the barrettes you remember from your elementary school days—only bigger. Made of flexible metal, they’re wide enough to secure even the thickest hair and work just as well in fine strands.

How to Use

Don’t be afraid to experiment—wear the barrette off to one side, or use it to top off a casual updo.

If You have Fine or Thin Hair... It's Hard to Use
Purchased

If you have really fine hair, or hair things fall out in easily... this isn't your thing. I've been ok wearing it if I hide a bobby pin or two in there to hold it in.

Also, these are big. They aren't kidding about the oversized part. These aren't for the bland or faint of heart.

However, every time I do wear it, I get a compliment from someone on how neat it is. Because, well, they're huge.

If it were from somewhere, it'd be from Texas or Australia.

Fun hair accessory

These are huge, like really big, and I love them! Can't wait to get creative and add a little pop to my hairstyle. Especially love the gold one with my blonde hair :)

easy hair do

I really liked these barrettes, they were kind of cheeky-looking and they were such a breeze to use to just throw my hair up and out of the way.

no good

I thought these would be a bit different. I really have no use for these barrettes. they are not practical at all.

Bright , Sassy, Well Made

These barrettes are very well made and bright. Unfortunately, my head is too small to wear them,. They would probably work better on longer, thicker hair. This is not product flaw- its a hair flaw.

Great Accessory!

These giant hair clips hold hair great! They are a super cute accessory!!! I highly recommend this product. They snap strongly into place and hold my hair very secure.

Disappointing

I was really excited to get these in, but I have used them maybe once or twice in the 6 months I have had them.. they do not hold well, and I have thin hair, they are just a little to big to do anything with. If they were a tad bit smaller they would work much better I believe.
