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 to Use

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.

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.

Literally had to bobby pin this clip in my hair in order for it to stay. Really great statement piece, wish it would have worked for me

Not so cool
Purchased

Way way bigger than I thought. Very tacky, I would not recommend. Will wear green one on at Patrick's day I guess and that's it, wasn't impressed

Pretty Neat but CHEAP
Purchased

I just received these barrettes and I love how unique they are. They are HUGE! Definitely check out the pics to get an idea how big they are. What I definitely do not like is how the gold coating looks so cheap! It's already bubbled up and I know it will start flaking any day now. Not what I would expect from something that costs $4 a piece...

Great!

These barrettes are awesome. They are able to hold my thick hair without any problems plus they are classy enough for work. Great product!

My d loves these for her long, thick hair. They are big and graphic, unique and really make styling her hair a cinch!

a little too big
Purchased

I thought these were super cute, but the photo doesn't do justice to the size. They work okay to hold a fanned out pony tail, but I can't clip them on the side because they are so huge. I would love them if they were just a wee bit smaller (they are about the size of my hand, but I have small hands)
