Not Great for Fine Hair

My hair is definitely too fine for the "sock bun"--so I was excited to receive this product in my monthly box. The first couple times it seemed to work like a gem...not I'm experiencing it harder to have a full-proof bun. You definitely need 1 bobby pin.

Love it

This is even easier to use than a sock bun and pulls your hair up super tight with no worries of it falling out during they day - must have for and easy morning up do when you don't have time to wash and blow dry your hair.

I received this in my birchbox. This item may work great on some hair, however, it just didnt work well for mine. I have waste length hair that is very fine and it was hard to get my hair wrapped all the way up and still have it look decent. I tried this once and won't try it again. IT probably works good on shoulder to bra length hair.

Huh?

Could not quite figure this one out. Do not know if because my hair is too long or too fine. Maybe it requires an extra pair of hands?

A little confused

I was a little confused about this product and it was kind of a dud to get since I dislike wearing my hair half up/half down. I am still going to try and make it work somehow. The price of this product did practically pay for the box

a waste of a sample

was very disappointed when this was in my sample box. doesn't even work well and it made poorly. you are better off using a sock where you get better, fuller results.

A little hard to master

This product was a little hard to master but once you practice with it, it comes in very handy! I love that it gives a different option when putting my hair up besides a boring ponytail. I plan to use this a lot in the future!

good in theory

so i really like the idea of this hair accessory but i think my hair is just too thick for it to work well. i think i am going to pass it on to a friend with slightly thinner hair

very messy!

I have really long hair with layers so maybe that's why it did not work for me. But definitely did not create a nice bun. All of my hair was falling out and did not stay put. I will not be using this product.

Easy-Peasy

I'm a no-fuss kind of girl when it comes to hair... as in, MAYBE I'll comb it if it's a particularly bedheady day. This little gadget is so easy to throw in & I swear even when I am barely paying attention to how I'm putting it in, it always looks great! So for me, this is a great way to change it up with very little effort.
