So pretty!
Sampled

These bobby pins are great! I can't imagine wearing them with a ponytail, and it might be a tough fit if you have thicker hair (mine's really fine), but for me these are the bee's knees.

Great for thick hair!
Sampled

I received the white pins with the green design in my July 2013 Birchbox. I love how heavy and wide they are - they don't slide around in my hair like other decorative bobby pins. Also, the adorable design is perfect for summer. I will purchase the full pack and hope that they roll out new designs for every season!

I received the blue ones and I love the design. I plan to wear them when my hair is down on either side of my head to hold my hair back.

These Birchbox bobbypins are fun and hold hair up surprisingly well! Very durable even for my long hair.

i prefer smaller, thinner bobby pins- they hold my hair better and can be more manageable. These were cute as a button but held only the part where the bend was and the open part my hair felt out of, so having were needed.

Ouch
Sampled

I was so excited to get these pins in my box this month, but they are really hard to strategically place in my hair, and it HURT to pull them out. They are too tight -- needs a redesign!

fab for my crazy hair
Sampled

I got these hair pins and immediately thought, wow, these are pretty flat...I don't think they will hold my hair. I was so wrong! They are flat and smooth on the outside, but the inside is magical! They held onto my crazy, flyaway hair all day without slipping or sliding, and didn't rip my hair out when I took them out - love them - and they are cute, too!

Cute design, but ouch!
Sampled

These are adorable! However, as many others have said, the tension is ridiculous and trying to get them into my hair ends with a lot of aggravation and lost hair when I take them out. I think if the tension wasn't so tight, they would be better and appeal to more folks. They are cute though...I'll probably give them to my sister to see if she has any luck with them.

Cute and strong
Sampled

Yes, like other people have said, these are super strong and a little hard to get out of your hair. But I'm OK with that. I have super short hair so I wear bobby pins frequently as an accessory. These are really perfect for me. They are large and they stay where I put them. They are also cute, but not overly "girly", so that's nice too.

These are so cute and are also super strong. If you put these in your hair they are going to stay.
