Cute

I use bobby pins a lot so it was nice to get something both functional and decorative for my hair. I wish one side was zig-zagged like normal bobby pins though.

A bit harsh
Sampled

I disliked these bobby pins. The colors were silly and they were a bit harsh on my hair. There's no need to lose hair when removing bobby pins from my hair. They were too thick and tight as well. I would not recommend them nor would I buy them. Not even for children.

Not really a bobby pin person

I tend to use pins once in a blue moon, but mostly I prefer colors that match my hair color. Don't particularly care for flashy colors in my hair. I'd rather my hair look more naturally put together than having clips so prominently apparent.

Great

I have thicker hair so these bobby pins made it easy to pull my hair up plus added a little extra fun to the look

Meh.

These are really large and looked weird in my fine hair. They are really stiff and difficult to open to put in my hair and when I tried to take them out they pulled my hair pretty bad.

cute not functional
Sampled

I don't really wear bobby pins. When I do you can't usually see them. These are cute, but even after the video's on how to style them I can't seem to make them work. I feel like a little girl with them in my hair and not really a professional working woman.

Cute but hurts
Sampled

These bobby pins are so cute but when I tried putting them on, they were really hard to just open up. They also hurt when being taken out since they are so stiff. Sadly, this didn't work out for me.

Be careful taking these out!

I have snagged and ripped my hair taking these out. I know they need to "grip" but they are almost TOO stiff for my fine hair. Be careful taking these out!

Adorable

First off I'm obsessed with bobby pins, so this was a double plus the fact that they were cute and bobby pins! They may not work well on thin hair as they are a bit heavy!!

Just Ok

They are too large and thick for my liking. Not easy to wear because they are constantly moving around. Needs better colors.
