Cute Bobby Pins, but not very practical
Sampled

I was actually thrilled to see these bobby pins in my birch box this month. The pros: super cute and i haven't seen anything like them, the cons: the full set comes with only 6 bobby pins for $5.00. I use bobby pins to hold my hair in place if i clip my bangs back or put my hair up. I have fine hair and need to criss-cross in order to get them to hold. These pins don't do that very well or easily and don't stay in place on my fine hair. If you have thicker hair or curly hair they might work better, and although they are a very cute novelty item/accessory, I personally would prefer a less expensive classic bobby pin from a drug store for the purpose i need bobby pins to serve. However, thank you for the cute gift, Birch Box!

Hair Pin

I only wear bobby pins when I need to clip my hair up in the shower or if I have a hairstyle that needs some extra holding. These are super cute (I got the green ones), but I really don't have enough use for them to buy a whole set.

Cute, but...

I really wanted to like the bobby pins. They're adorable but they're hard to get into my hair and impossible to get out without snagging and taking a few strands with it.

Cute Bobby Pins

Cute Bobby Pins. They are pretty strong and sturdy. I don't think I will wear them that much because I like to wear bobby pins that blend in with my hair. For those who like quirky designs/colors I think this is pretty nice.

Great Bobby Clips for thick hair!
Sampled

These are some heavy-duty Bobby Pins! I think the design on them is cute. They hold my thick hair back with no problem at all. I was impressed with these clips, although I don't normally use bobby pins, so I don't know if I will purchase them or not.

cute but hurts!
Sampled

I received the blue and white pattern and they are really cute but they are too tight. They are tight to get on and they pull my hair out when I try to get them out.

Super Cute!

I must admit that I still love bobby pins after all these years. These were super cute, worked well, and came in colors that were easy to match with a variety of outfits. I intend to buy them next time I make my purchases with BB.
