twistband™ Best of Birchbox Sampler Set

The product that has had the most radical (positive) effect on our beauty regimen isn’t a miracle cream or a long-wearing lipstick. It’s a piece of super soft elastic. Twistbands are a permanent fixture in the Birchbox office—on staffers’ wrists, in their ponytails, and even decorating their water bottles. We’re fans because they keep hair secure without snagging strands or leaving behind ugly creases. (And because they’re cute, of course.) This exclusive set includes 15 of our favorites, from lace to neon varieties, plus three holiday-appropriate headbands.

Love

I am one of those girls who always has to have a hair tie with me. I love my hair down but since I work at a school, I need to put my hair up and often. I love how cute the hair ties are and they actually keep my long thick hair from falling out.

Stretch out
Purchased

Hey twist bend. Make something that doesn't stretch out so dang much! I will buy it more... I promise!!! Love the super cute prints, but the only weight it can handle day after day is a low pony. Otherwise it will stretch out.

Not impressed
Purchased

Due to some sort of technical snafu, I missed out on the box that included a sampler of Twistbands, but they were so positively reviewed and so heavily promoted that I decided to spent some points to buy them. Big mistake. My slippery, flat hair just spits these bands (ponytail holders and headbands alike) right out, but they manage to pull hair with them. The color selection I got was pretty gross -- lots of weird beiges and strange fluoro colors reminiscent of the worst parts of my impoverished early nineties childhood, when most of my clothes shopping had to be done at Le K-Marche. The ugliest are the 'lace'-style bands, which have a lace print on one side, and a white background on the reverse. It's pretty difficult to ensure, when twisting these around your hair, that the white part isn't facing outward, and it gets visibly discolored pretty easily. Glad I used my points on these instead of real money, because they absolutely are not worth the dollar value assigned to them.

Not as great
Purchased

I have a lot of hair so these do not hold my hair up very well. I usually only use the smaller ones for the ends of braids. The headbands also give me headaches as well as a crease.

Eh

I wasn't a fan of these hair ties, after two uses, the hair tie frayed really bad and I had to throw it out. It was a waste.

Too big for me

sadly I found the bands to be too big for my wrist so i had to keep that in my purse which was very inconvenient and then they didnt tie very nicely in my hair either but they are very pretty.

I was super excited to receive this sampler set, especially for the cute lacy Birchbox exclusive Twistbands. And then the sampler set arrived without them. It was very boring without those, and the headbands were quite tight on my head. Ended up returning it. I wanted to love it, but just didn't. I've ordered other Twistband products and the regular size ponytail holder bands are by far their best product.

It doesn't always work.
Purchased

I have extremely fine hair and I find that sometimes the bands fall right out. Especially if I use the larger bands for sports to hold my hair in place. I'm not in love with this product at all.

Not a fan

I honestly didn't know what this was. I thought it was a rubber band. Not a fan of this product.

I was so excited about these, but they didn't work

The product claims they won't leave creases in your hair and that's true, because the ties didn't stay in at all! I also found them to be more distracting on my wrist than a regular hair tie because of the bright colors and bulkiness. I really wanted to like these, but sadly they didn't work!
