Pretzel Brown blends perfectly into brunettes' hair, creating a classic look for everyone to enjoy - this Invisibobble is definitely a keeper!
Thoughts: When I first received the email, I was drawn to the model demoing how to beach wave her hair. Since I have super straight hair, I was hopeful this will keep my hair wavy throughout the day.
Here's a closer look at Mint To Be.

Here's a closer look at To Be Or Nude To Be.
Here's a closer look at one of the hair rings.
The website is full of hair demos either through photos or videos. This is one of the most basic hair demo in my opinion. It's a high ponytail with hair wrapped around it. The website named it as High Tie by Denise Bredtmann.
Here's my hair tied in a high ponytail with Invisibobble. I used the Mint To Be.
Here's my hair wrapped around the hair tie.
This is the beach wave I mentioned earlier. I'm always looking for easy method of curling my super straight hair. The website named it as Beach Waves by Richard Phillipart.
Here's a closer look at the three hair buns. It's not as clean as the model but I did my best as I can.
Here's how the wave looked on me. I'm wearing Kate Eye Shadow in BR-1 on the eyes and NYX Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipstick in Brilliant on the lips.
Before I show you the bottom part of the hair, let me show you how normally my hair is.
Here's how the ends look with the beach wave. I love how it turned out!

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I like the packaging. It comes in a simple, see-through box. I like that it's easy to see the color of the hair rings. Since there's multiple colors in this line, not everyone want every color. I also like that the money was not spent on the box when most people throw them away. I rather spend on the item, hair rings, than a box. That's just my own personal opinion. With that said, the hair rings are cute. They remind me of phone cords from the old days. Wow, it tells you how young I'm not. Anyways, who would have thought these type hair rings would work in our hair. The creator is one smart cookie! Secondly, I used these hair rings in different styles and they're the most comfortable ever! Just like regular hair ties, they stretch and kind of come back to their normal shape. With usage, they stretch out more but that's with any hair ties. This is no different. The only difference is that hair ties is one circular loop. It holds onto the hair tightly and does not leave any space whatsoever. If you want to tuck in more hair, you need to stretch out the ties. These hair rings have spaces which makes it easier to style your hair. It's easy to tuck in hair and it's won't tug on them. Not only that, it doesn't constrain the hair and head like hair ties. From my experience a lot of people with thin and not much hair, feel pressure on the head after some time with hair ties. That's why they get headaches after awhile. Since these hair rings doesn't constrain the head, you won't feel pressure whatsoever. It's extremely comfortable on the head. Third, I wanted this product more for creating waves in my super straight hair. Through trail and error, I learned the most easiest way for me is to create the three buns the night before. I sleep with them on and they're actually comfortable. Since there's spaces, it doesn't constrain my head and I don't feel the bun while I sleep. Once I wake up, I take them out and style with gel and hairspray. It's that easy. Other than that, I'm not that good at styling my hair. It's easier for me to style other people's hair than mine since I can see what I'm doing. I will keep trying and hopefully in the future I will get better. With that said, I highly recommend their website. They have styles created by Denise Bredtmann, Richard Phillipart, and Jenny Strebe. They're taught through both graphics and video. It's pretty mesmerizing and fun to watch. I spent some nights just watching them. Fourth, they come in a variety of colors. They're fashionable and fun. You can show them off or hid them with hair wrap around them. It is all up to the individual. Not only that, they look like fun bracelets. I'm sure you can use these products for other things other than hair ties. You can get as creative as you want. Plus, I like how unique the style is. Lastly, this is how I've been using these. When I go to the gym, I want my hair tied so it doesn't fall off. For that reason, I use a hair ties. Having my hair fall while exercising is the last thing I want to worry about. When it comes to styling and creating hair buns, I use this product. With that said, I'm so glad this came into my life. Styling, creating waves, have changed my life!
