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.
At first, I was IN LOVE with these, so I bought the sampler set. I thought they'd be great and wonderful. I loved the different colors and styles, and I'd hope they'd last me a while. They are good hair bands, and they are stylish, but they also stretch out very quickly and lose color if they get wet. As a frequent handwasher, this is a problem. None of them have retained their color after I washed my hands a few times. They are also unraveling quite a bit. So, they work well as their job, but have not lived up to what I had hoped.3
I love the twistband that came in my birchbox! It slides out occasionally, but will probably stay in place better when my hair gets a little longer.4
In my December box, I received the smaller twistband and loved it. I have found that the bigger twistbands don't stay in my hair very well (slips off), BUT the smaller pony-tail holder size is fantastic!4
I wear my hair back daily as I work in a hospital, but hate the "dent" regular headbands leave and the fact that most elastics can pull my hair out. I really, really wanted to like the headbands, but they tended to slide off my head.They did not, however, leave that dreaded dent. The ponytail holders were very nice, no pulling my hair out and the sample pack is a good value, enabling you to try several different kinds and colors.4
I love these twist bands! They are cute and stylish when you just want to put your hair up on a lazy day!5
I received one if these twistbands in my gift box and was loving it until I lost it! I'm so bummed but now I know where to get them!!4
I think these are attractive. They are definitely prettier than a normal band, and do hold the hair well. I just don't feel that the price is worth it, ultimately.4
I got this hairband and really loved it. I also got it it brown so I was super stoked because that's the color of hair tie I use. However becuase my hair is so thick, it stretched too far to stay on my wrist and went missing one day. I was bummed. I guess it's just not for my hair/wrist.3
I like how I can wear these around my wrist when they aren't in my hair and it doesn't cut off my circulation. There is only one problem I'm finding with these, my friends all "borrow" them and never return them! They also leave virtually no crease in your hair. I have put mine in a ponytail while still wet and after a full day and drying, you couldn't tell my hair had been in a ponytail when I took it down!4
I ordered this gift pack to use as stocking stuffers for my sisters-in-law ranging in ages from 12-30 and they loved them! Of course I kept a few for myself. Only problem so far is that one of them is fraying at the end, but still satisfied with the product and they were a big hit at Christmas.4
