I have super thick hair-- this band wouldn't stretch to the extent I need to actually hold my hair up. The pattern is super cute, though!

too stretchy
Sampled

I think they are very cute, but they do not hold my hair up well, Too loose, and too expensive.

Not pumped.
Sampled

These things are very trendy right now for whatever reason. I've seen a lot of younger girls wearing them, mostly around their wrist. I honestly thought it was a wristband or bracelet. It's way too stretchy to be a hair tie. I got the star printed one, and it looks like something for a nursery. Not for me.

Couldn't get it to stay in my hair
Sampled

I was excited about this hair tie when I saw my box but it doesn't stay in my hair at all. Not sure if that is because my hair is thick but silky fine but the hair tie doesn't stretch enough for a last twist to keep it tight.

why are these so expensive?!?
Sampled

i don't understand these hair ties - they are so exorbitantly priced for no apparently reason. the elastic can be purchased in bulk for hardly anything on dozens of craft sites, and it just needs to be cut and tied. these are ridiculous...

It's just stretchy ribbon tied in a knot.
Sampled

So, I got this and I wasn't sure what to do with it at first. It was stretchy ribbon tied in a knot. I put it around my wrist and the knot kept dragging across the desk while I was writing, I put it in my hair and it just looked messy and the knot really stood out.

Then I saw the full price for this was like $14. Seriously? For a stretchy ribbon tied in a knot? Maybe if the ends were neatly sewn together I would consider it, but for about $5-$7, tops. Totally overpriced and unimpressive.

cute, but not practical
Sampled

Super cute design, but did not work for my thick, curly hair. I had to take the knot out just to get it to wrap around my ponytail enough to hold it in. Maybe would work better for people with thinner hair.

Cute design but...

I like the colors and designs on these hair ties, but what is the point of the designs if you can't even see them when your hair is up? I have gotten at least 3 of these same hair ties in different colors in my boxes and I am still not loving them enough to actually buy them. They either stretch out so much that they are useless after one use, or they don't stretch enough to fit over my hair. They're cute, but I'll stick to my tried and true Goody hair elastics.

Tiny!
Sampled

For some reason, I thought the hair tie looked a little larger in the photo. Therefore, I was surprised to see how tiny it was! To be honest, it and some other meager samples made the box look lacking. It was cute enough, just small.
