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.

These are great!

You need to try these out. They are gentle on the hair and come in a nice variety of colors. The headbands are nice. I have a smaller head and they stay put pretty good. Love the hair ties!!

Love!
Purchased

I love these new hair bands. They provided an amazing amount of variety in colors and sizes. I love the fact that they are better for your hair because they aren't snagging.

Changed my pony for good!!
Purchased

I was a bit hesitant to drop this much money on what I considered to be "fancy ponytail holders." But I was curious and birchbox had this nice sample pack available so I have it a shot. I really like these!! I have fine hair and often get that "bump" when I take my ponytail out. These softened that crease and decreased that ponytail headache that I sometimes get from wearing my hair up for too long. I do find that these get stretched out with repeated use but I just toss them in the washer and dryer and they shrink back down. Either my head is too round or the material of the headbands is too slick for me to keep them in place for more than a minute. What a waste, I first thought, but then decided to untie the knot and use the material to make more ponytail holders! Overall, very happy to have discovered these.

Pricey but a nice selection
Purchased

I love the hair bands and wanted to try their other products. The headband one didn't work for me. It wouldn't stay put, but wish it would because it was super cute.

Awesome!!!
Purchased

I have fine hair that crimps easily from most hair elastics. Twistbands are the answer to my prayers. they hold my hair back but never leave a mark afterwards. They have such cute colors and prints. Twistbands are my preferred hair tie. I strongly suggest throwing out your old hair ties and buying a multipack of twistbands

Awesome Value!
Purchased

This sampler set comes with so many hair ties it's a great value. They're all very cute colors and I love that I got a variation of sizes. My only complaint is how quickly these seem to stretch out. I have thick hair and after a day of wear the twistbands stretch out pretty significantly...but I've found this of all brands of the style of ponytail holders.

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.

Bands twist around and lose shape
Purchased

I dont know if they changed the fabric from the one included in the original box-but this one changed shape and twisted into a small band very quickly. The headbands kept shape, but not the small hairbands.

Pretty hairbands
Purchased

I liked the sample I got in my Birchbox, so I ordered more. I didn't like the bands that were 1/2 the thickness of the full size (my hair is too thick to use this size), but I liked the other sizes. I love wearing the full-size headbands at work (I work in a hospital), with a little hairspray it keeps my hair back for a full 12-hour shift! I use the ponytail size with a clear hairband underneath for extra support:)
