usually regular hair pins slip right out of my hair. I started using the spiral hairpins to hold my hair up. So, when i got these in my birchbox back in june, i kinda set them off to the side, figuring they wouldn't work out either.
Fast forward to two weeks ago. I needed something to hold my hair off my face while i working on something in the house. I figured i'd have to stop and push my hair back up a little later, but it would give me time to get things where i needed them before i'd have to catch my hair.
A few hours later, my still held. I was quite surprised. I guess the wider width of the hairpin helped to hold my hair in place. I was pleasantly surprised, and i would order more, if they weren't so expensive.
The price breaks down to $1.50 each hairpin. As a poor college student, the price isn't feasible. I wish i had a coupon or something for them, so i could buy more.
