pulls your hair

I previously wrote a review praising these. It was before I took them out of my hair, however. They are cute and they hold the hair in place well. It is basically impossible to remove them without pulling out numerous strands of hair, however. If they gave a bit more, it would be better.

Holds really good

Love the patterns and great hold! I can't wait until I order the whole set of six so I can use it on my daughter as well.

Holds hair in place!

These are great bobby pins! They are really strong. The only downside is they are actually a little difficult to get out. (which is good when you are wanting your hair to stay in place.)
The designs are super cute and go with anything.
I would recommend buying these :)

cute, but not my style

pins are very cute, but I don't really see myself buying bobby pins with designs. I'd personally stick with plain colored ones.

Cute, but hard to maneuver

I received the white bobby pins with the blue pattern and they are adorable. That said, they are hard to get in my hair and hard to take out. They look great, but I probably won't buy any additional sets.

Ow!!

These are so cute but they pulled my hair out! Not just one or two either, there's no cushioning on the tips, tension is way too tight, no way to remove that doesn't yank hair out.

Love the idea and patterns, but the actual pin needs a re-design.

Update

I take back what I said about the sample size...it wasn't supposed to be 6 pins like I thought; that's the purchase size. But I still stand by the rest. If I'm going to use pins, I want ones that can't be seen!

Cute and strong!

These pins actually hold my hair in place and as long as I am gentle, they are gentle on my hair as well!

They don't catch, and the design is cute. I guess they are a little to "straight" on my head, as someone else said. They can look a little awkward.

I love these!

Most bobby pins don't stay or hold my hair very well, but these ones are VERY strong. More designs and colors please!
