The twistband sample set came with a good combination of items: skinny & thick twistband ponytail holders and headbands in a variety of bright colors.
The skinny twistbands left something to be desired. They were cute but lacked support to hold my hair. My hair is thick and fine so it is soft which might mean this could work for someone with a different type of hair.
The thick twistbands were great. They held my hair better and even stood up to working out. I think what makes the thicker bands better is the increased elasticity. It allows you to make the band tighter in your hair for better support.
The head bands are cute but will not work for a workout.
Overall, I really like the twistbands but know they wont work if I am at the gym.
