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.

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
Purchased

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.

Good hold
Purchased

I think they are cute & love the variety. The hold is okay but they stretch out and then they don't hold well. The headbands did not stay on my head but I have trouble with all headbands staying on so I just use that as ponytails and wrap them a lot.

Cute hair ties
Purchased

I ordered this assorted hair tie collection. The colors were great. Got everything from neon to metallics. Although they claim to not create creases in your hair, they do on mine. But I have thick hair so I have to have a tight tie or else it just falls right out of my hair. But they are totally cute. And when you wear them on your wrist, people think it's some sort of bracelet! haha

Great hair ties
Purchased

I won't use anything but these. I just wish the headbands were not as tight, but they do stretch out over time.

Better for looks than a workout
Purchased

The twistband sample set came with a good combination of items: skinny & thick twistband ponytail holders and headbands in a variety of bright colors.

The skinny twistbands left something to be desired. They were cute but lacked support to hold my hair. My hair is thick and fine so it is soft which might mean this could work for someone with a different type of hair.

The thick twistbands were great. They held my hair better and even stood up to working out. I think what makes the thicker bands better is the increased elasticity. It allows you to make the band tighter in your hair for better support.

The head bands are cute but will not work for a workout.

Overall, I really like the twistbands but know they wont work if I am at the gym.

Awesome!!!
Purchased

I love these little guys, a great improvement to the standard hair tie!!! They don't leave a kink in your hair at all, only downside they tend to stretch out after a few uses.

Cute
Purchased

These are more cute than functional. They are a great diversion from the regular hair tie- something fun, but they don't hold hair up very well. For tossing hair up but not for holding hair during an intense workout.
