Cute, but not practical
Sampled

I couldn't get them in my hair. They're too tight. There's no flexibility to open them even slightly to put them in my hair.

Just OK
Sampled

These bobby pins were ok. Being close to 30, I don't feel like I can wear these out in public. But that's just my personal preference. I also noticed that the print started rubbing off so I just threw them in my drawer or maybe the trash? Can't remember. Cute idea, bad execution.

Unless you're a teenager I see
No use for these clips! They not only slide down but the colors are awful

Ouch!

I was really excited when I got these bobby pins because I only have the standard, boring bobby pins. It was really disappointing because they hurt (badly) when I take them out of my hair. Would not purchase.

Tear my hair

I wanted to love these, but they literally tear my hair! With already damaged hair from constant dying and heat styling, I just can't afford to unnecessarily shred my hair.

Cute but not practical

These are super cute, but not practical. I have thinner fine hair and these are too tight and not comfortable. Also, they are too thick.

Not what it says

Title says set of six. However I only received two. They also do not hold well. Probably just stay in my bathroom drawer forever.

Cute torture devices

Adorable print, but seriously dangerous for your hair. Tried to clip it into my hair and mine were so tightly clamped that I couldn't even get them in place without pulling on my hair painfully. Removing them also removed enough hair to be concerned. Never wore them after the first attempt because of it. Bobby pins should be tight enough to hold your hair in place, but should still be at least bendable enough not to destroy the hair it's holding.

too tight

These are so cute but I could barely open the pin and when I did they were difficult to get out of my hair without damage.

Good idea, poor execution

I have thick hair and appreciate a sturdy hair accessory -- but these are too stiff and tight. Difficult to use. Also, the bright white-backed colors don't look good in my hair. I wish they came in more neutral colors.
