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.

not for thick hair
Purchased

I was so excited to order this...but the elastic stretched out after the 2nd use. My hair is too thick I guess. For me, it is only good for a loose low ponytail that I have to keep re-adjusting multiple times throughout the day. I gave 2 stars because the colors are cute.

cute, but don't last
Purchased

I love the look of these, but for thick, curly hair, they just don't do the job. They stretch out quickly and don't hold all of my hair at once.

Not my cup of tea

While the crease in my hair was considerably less, the sample seemed to stretch out more drastically and quickly than a regular hairband. This also made it look faded and crumpled when wearing around my wrist. Maybe I'm just harsher on my hairbands than the average Jill.

Didn't like them

I am not a fan of these so called hair bands. They look like you didn't have a hair tie and just tied together a string in a pinch :(

Cute, but started unraveling almost immediately!
Purchased

I was so excited to get these, and I'm still enjoying trying out the different colors/styles. However, the ends of these (especially the neon ones) started unraveling almost immediately! They're still usable, but they look a little messy on my wrist, which is really disappointing, especially for a relatively expensive hair tie. I've used Twistband-style hair ties from other companies and have not run into this issue before. The holiday headbands are pretty but slide off the hair (although that might just be due to my hair/head shape). The lace printed Twistbands are the sturdiest so far.

Look better on my wrist than in my hair
Purchased

I have thick, curly, long hair and I love these bands. But usually they stay on my wrist. I will use them to cover the double bands I use to put my hair in a ponytail. The headbands add a little sparkle to my updos but they are too thin to hold my hair if it is down.

Not quite tight enough for me
Purchased

I was happy with the variety as far as colors and designs that I received and they are very cute, but the ponytail holders just aren't strong enough for my thick hair. they are as advertised- they do not snag and do not leave creases, but the other end of that is that they don't hold my hair as securely as I would like sometimes. The headbands are great for that very same reason, they aren't too tight, so they don't give you a headache, but also don't fall out- I like these the best. The ponytail holders I will just reserve for occasions when it's not vital for my hair to stay in place. Overall, a good purchase.

new to twistbands
Purchased

This was the first time I had ever tried twistbands and I kinda like them. Definitely like how they don't leave creases and reduce breakage, but sometimes you need a hair tie that stays in place. Loved the variety of colors, especially the sparkly ones!

Pretty
Purchased

I like how they are all pretty, so it looks okay to have one around your wrist all of the time. However, I was in the sun a lot for the past week, and the one I had on most of the time is completely discolored. They also don't like to stay in very well, but I really like their convenience and how they don't cut off my circulation when I have them on my wrist.
