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.

GREAT - but stretch after use
Purchased

My hairstylist said... ONLY use these for your hair!! And I love them but after a few uses they stretch out! The small, thinner ones stretch the most!

More cute than functional. I love the prints and the concept but it left a very slouchy ponytail. Little disappointed.

ok...

These don't hold up very well. They start to fray at the end and eventually over time I just ended up throwing them away one by one. They don't leave a crease in your hair, which is a plus, but they just don't last very long!

I love the twistband hair elastics and use them all the time. They look cute on my wrist too. The headbands are not for me though. I like the look of them, but have to use hair clips or bobby pins to keep them in, otherwise the slide off.

Super cute variety pack
Purchased

I ordered the variety pack and I love all the colors. I have one on my wrist every day to match an outfit. They do leave a little bit of a bend in my hair (which is super straight) but not half as much as regular black covered elastics did. Super Cute!

cute not practicle
Purchased

the twistbands are very gentle on the hair, but they do not hold a pony tail for very long. even with curly hair they slide off leaving your hair a mess.

Some work, some don't
Purchased

Love the colors and different sizes, but the ponytail size doesn't work in my hair. I have however used the headbands to do the princess roll-up and they worked well!

Cute, but not very effective
Purchased

I really wanted to like these because they're really cute-looking, but they don't work well in my hair. I wear headbands and ponytail holders to work out and these don't stay put in my fine hair. The ponytail holders slip off during virorous workouts and the headbands slide off my head. They might work better for someone with thicker hair.

Not Impressed
Purchased

I am in love with twistband Headbands but the hair ties stretch out so quickly! I have super thick hair and I definitely can't rely on these hair ties to hold my hair up. I would say this is more on the side of just looking stylish on your wrist and when you're in a bind to loosely hold your hair back. Maybe good for shopping or around the office but for working out I'll stick to drugstore hair ties for a lot less money.
