I bought this yesterday because of the innovation it is meant to bring to the table as far as hair pins are concerned. It really does work and secured my bun in place for my night out at the theatre while not damaging my hair, the price is reasonable and the packaging while ugly is solid. I will definitely buy it again
This product, with another name, was in Robinsons about 17 or 18 years ago and I bought a set for about twenty bucks. I considered it a bargain after using them and went back for more but could not find them again. Now Goody is packaging a smaller version and I couldn't be happier. My daughter and I have long thick hair and holding a bun up with these is a godsend. The packaging was difficult to open but once I got them out it was game on. An earlier review remarked that the pins are uncomfortable when they rest on your head but the cool thing about these things is that you don't even have to have them touching your head. Definitely would buy them again and recommend them to all my long hair buddies
These didn't really wow me. They worked...for the most part. I found that they didn't hold my hair that tightly and ended up creating a loose, messy bun instead (which isn't bad, if that's what you're going for).
I like the idea of these, and maybe I just need to buy another set because I have a lot of hair and two just didn't seem to cut it.
I also felt that these were a bit pricey for a DS hair item.
I thought these worked pretty well, especially for my slippery asian hair, but the only complaint I would have is that if part of the pin sits against or is touching your head for an amount of time it begins to feel uncomfortable. Overall, it is a pretty good invention since you don't have to use many pins in your hair.
I bought a pair of these yesterday on my way to work. I put them in without a mirror and didn't get to see how it looked until hours later. I was pretty amazed... I have trouble getting buns to look good, especially if I can't see what I'm doing, but my hair looked exactly the way I wanted. I thought these were too expensive when I bought them, but I think considering how well they work, they're worth it. Also, I usually have a problem with elastic bands and clips leaving a dent in my hair whenever I do any sort of updo, but when I took the Spin Pins out hours later, I just have some nice waves in my hair and no dents.
It's a great alternative to those clips we all seem to wear that are very visible. It holds your hair for a long time with minimal adjustment and is hidden in your hair just like a bobby pin. I really like this product and will definitely buy more.
However it is really overpriced for what you're getting (in terms of material costs) but the product actually works so it's easily worth the $7 or so that it costs.
Even though I think Goody is making a killing on these (selling them for $6.00 a pack even though they probably take 5 cents to make) I still love my spin pins. They hold up my waist length, thick, slippery hair and they don't scratch me, like regular hair pins.
Target only had the blonde ones in stock and I really wanted to try it, so I got it anyways! these things works wonders! My hair is thick and long! i was so amazed how well these held my hair! great invention! i'll prolly get the one for dark hair, if it's on sale. lol
If this stuff works on my almighty thick curly coarse frizzy hair, then I'd guarantee that this would work on your hair too :)
ps: though it doesn't work on my wet/damp hair
I love this product the only hair pin that I have found that will hold my hair in a bun all day without moving. I have thick hair and I have to use them all, but I love, love, love them.
