This exclusive set of six chicly patterned pins adds instant style to all your ‘dos—display them proudly.

How to Use

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

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.

Cute Bobby Pins
Sampled

These are really cute but they unfortunately didn't have much use to me. I'm not very good at styling my hair and I'm not sure what to do with them. I gave them to a friend and she liked them a lot though!

I use these all the time. They don't slide out of my ridiculously thick hair, and are very cute!! They don't look awkward when they show, because they actually tie together with whatever I'm wearing.
