Ouch

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.

Very Strong!

I have very thick hair, and a bunch of wispy shorter hairs in the front that never grow out, so I need a bunch of bobby pins and hair clips on hand at all times. Regular old black pins get boring though, and these are very cute! They're relatively large and strong, and although they can be a little awkward (they're very straight, as others have said), they hold hair in place very well and are low-maintenance enough to wear all day without having to fiddle with them repeatedly.

Good hold, hard to get out of hair

Like I said before, these pins have great hold and are very sturdy as well as pretty (a huge plus for my wavy, thick, coarse-fine mixed hair!) but I do have to say that they seemed to take a bit of my hair with them when I tried to remove them. So, they stay in really well, but it also means that they're a bit hard to take out!

Bobby pin fanatic has a new addiction

Holy cow!! Well being a professional bobby pinner I must say these had a lot to live up to! I LOVE the pattern on the pin! Turns a simple white tank and rip off jeans into a chic little ensemble! These bobby pins are super strong and really keep hair fly aways at bay! Can't wait to purchase the whole set! And for $5!! Can't beat it!

Easy to Use, Love the Look!

So excited to receive these adorable bobby pins in my box this month! I wear bobby pins ( the ones you cant see) all the time with my thick wavy hair when its up- but i love how these add some style and accessorizing to my daily look. They hold thick hair great and slid in very easily! thinking of picking up the full set!

cute pins

They are cute and I love the pattern. They also stay in your hair quick well (even my fine hair!) The only downside is that the pins are so strong that it was a little difficult to pry it open and get it in my hair.
