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.

colorful and fun

I liked these hairbands a lot. the wrist elastics for pony tails were not as elasticy as the emi jay hair ties they resemble but I still liked the colors and use these often.

Mostly like them
Purchased

The colors and patterns of the bands are fun. They do well to not crease the hair, which is nice transitioning between styles during the day/night based on needs. Things I'm a little iffy on: the knots in the bands sticking out and the not always consistent stretch factor. I have relatively thick hair, so I needed something that is going to keep it in place. The bands took a few tries before they give the right amount of tension for your own hair. I haven't used the headbands, but that's because I only use them for running and these are too cute for running.

Fun
Purchased

This sampler pack has many different options that are super fun. My only issue is that I have fine hair but a thick head of hair. So these are fun for decorative purposes or for a loose pony, but they don't provide enough oomph to keep a tight pony at my crown.

Pretty good, depending on hair type
Purchased

Pros: No post-pony bump. Comfortable on the wrist when not in use. Awesome color/pattern options.

Cons: A looser hold than the standard black bands. Headbands have same issues as any other headband (slides off if no part).

Overall, I'm glad I bought these bands; they're super fun and really comfortable to sleep in.

Cute but not practical

I absolutely love how cute these hair ties are- in your hair or on your wrist. I was disappointed though, because they couldn't wrap around my hair the proper amount of times so they didn't hold my hair up. The headbands also slipped off of my head because I have slick hair. I really wanted these to work for me, but unfortunately they did not.

I love this hair ties! So cute and effective. An easy way to pull your hair back and still have some style. Perfect fit for my mommy life.

I absolutely love these twist bands!

If I wear any type of headband for too long I get a headache but not these...I would get annoyed that they stretch out but because they stretch a bit I don't get the headaches from long use and the fact they come in all different colors and prints I can put them with anything!

Perfect for me and baby!

Thanks BirchBox for introducing me to these funky and gentle on hair little wonders. I love the twist bands and the fact that my hair is no longer being ripped out of my head. The headbands rock. And the sweetest thing is that I share the funkier neon colors with my too cute one year old daughter, where gentle is a must!

Cute

The twistbands are a really cute addition to my hair tie collection. I've used them at the gym and my girls have used them at dance. They hold hair in place without getting painfully tangled. Plus I love all of the colors.

Cute and gentle on hair

I bought these for my 13-year-old daughter, but now I wish I'd bought some for myself as well. They are smaller than I expected from the online photos, but I'm not disappointed by their size. They hold her braid or pony tail well and don't pinch.
