Works with effort but it's too difficult for every day

I am a very no-effort hair person, so was excited by the prospects in this tool. Ultimately, it works okay, but I put it in a few times and haven't touched it since as it is somewhat tricky to make work properly. Might work well for people with thicker hair, but I had to be really careful to make sure my hair was evenly dispersed so it wasn't showing.

meh

I'm not great at using products like this, and in general they're just not for me. Plus I don't really want the hairstyle it's trying to achieve.

Awesome tool
Purchased

I have super fine hair and I struggle creating full updos. This product is amazing no bobby pins needed and it looks great half up or in a low bun. Its so easy and takes about 30 seconds but people will think you put a lot of effort in! Love it.

Ineffective
Sampled

This product did not work for me and I gave it many tries. My hair would not even stay using this, let alone make my hair into any kind of style. Really disappointed with this product.

Great updo!

This helps me put my hair up quickly and easily! Would normally never buy anything like this on my own but glad it came with my box!

Huh? Confused

I have no clue how to use this thing... Plus it's a magnet for lint, dust, everything thing.

Huge Disappointment
Sampled

I'm not very creative with my hair styling, so I thought this would help give me some variety. While I got variety, I would never want to be seen in public looking the way I did. Didn't hold my hair well and it just looked like a pathetic, messy bun.

Too small not needed
Sampled

This was too small for my thick hair. Couldn't use it and don't really use these types of hair accessories. It's ok maybe for someone with thin hair

Not for me
Sampled

The opening was too skinny for my hair to go through and the hairs that did get in there were broken off because of this thing.

Not for thin hair
Sampled

I have very fine light brown hair. I received a black sample in my box and my hair is way too fine to cover it. It was also not very easy to use, but probably would be great with thicker hair.
