I am a mom of 4 girls and our mornings are a whirlwind of clothing changes and hair requests. Just looking at the hoop and pin in it's packaging I thought that there would be more instruction on different style suggestions or how to make it work best, but I didn't find those so I just played with it for a bit. The package does say, "works best for thick hair" but I wanted to see how 'thick' it needed to be. I have 2 girls with finer hair and I tried it on both of their hairs and it slid right out.
I then tried it on my middle daughter's hair. She has very thick long hair and I was able to do a half up half down look with it. It looked very pretty and gave a more elegant look to her hair compared to a normal barrette or hair tie. I sent her to school and while I was volunteering at lunch duty, I ran into my daughter and she had her hair in a messy bun. She came over to me and told me that it had fallen out just before she started walking to the lunch room. So, it held in her very thick hair from 8:30AM-1:45 PM, just over 5 hours.
I am sure we could increase the time it stayed in by adding a small hairtie or bobby pins, but that seems like it would defeat the purpose of the simple clean look of it. I would recommend getting this if you have extremely thick hair but if it is fine or thin at all, look for another way to put your hair up.
This is a super pretty hair pin. I only wish it could have worked for my hair. I have extremely fine hair, and this pin did not stay at all. there is nothing on the hoop or pin that will secure the two pieces to each other - you need the security of thick hair to keep the pin in place. The product does state that it works best for medium to thick hair. I passed the pin on to my friend and it does stay put on her hair while looking very elegant.

Gold Hoop & Pin Barrette was nice simple two piece set. Nice addition during the holidays!! I would say putting your hair in a pony tail would help it hold in place or having just thick hair pull back is helpful. I felt it cute and nice. Easy to use.

The hoop and pin in the color gold was a little bit tricky to style at first but I got a hang of it after a few tries. This product is of great quality as well as sturdy plus it looks beautiful in any type of hair.

Okay I love being extra when it comes to styling my hair. I have long beautiful black natural hair and it's such a beauty. It can be a whole lot taking care of it and sometimes a let down hair do is what's best. Well with this Gold Barette hoop & pin I can glam it but in a simple elegant way.

The Barettes just didn't work that well for my hair. It was hard to use and never felt really secure
Meag from Boston
This is great with a regular bun, makes it look beautiful for a night out!

This barrette is so beautiful and delicate but is good for half styles or for people with short or thin hair. I tried with all my hair and it was too hard
Gil from Chicago
Huge fan! I have long, thick, coarse hair, and this pin does a great job keeping it out of my face while still looking stylish. The brush is super soft and I love it

I'll preface this review with that fact that I'm not thw best at styling hair jn general, but even worse when it comes ro styling my own. I jad never used this type of barrette before, so honestly, I had to watch a couple videos online to get the idea of how to use it. That being said, it's not as complicated as I first thought, and practice is helping a lot. It's very pretty, and my hair is just thick enough for it to be comfortably snug. I like it overall.

I love how the gold just shines in my hair. It looks great against my blue!

I love this idea of holding my hair up with out a hair tie/band. At first it was a little tricky putting to use, but the more I trail and error the better hold I get. I would recommend this product

I used the barrette for a first time and really felt in love. I thought it was designed for thick hair which I did have in my entire life. Surprisingly, the barrette worked great with my hair. It stays on for a long time. Also, it makes my hairstyle looks great.

I love this pretty matte gold hoop and pin barrette. It took a couple tries to figure out how much hair is needed to use this but one I got the hang of it it was so cute! It was perfect to have this holiday season as it added a simple elegant touch to my hair.

I really loved the modern and simple look of this. I often need my hair out of my face but hate the look of ties and bobby pins. This left me feeling still fresh and put together, not so frumpy. It took me some time to get it all figured out, and I wish there would have been some pictures to show how to put it in. After a few tries and some online videos I was able to figure it out. I am already on the lookout for some other styles of hair pins.

The Hoop and Pin Barrette are very pretty and look very nice in my hair but would be better suited for thicker hair. My hair is thin and straight and it slipped out over a couple of hours. It may be beneficial to add styling suggestions on how to use it as it's not completely intuitive. I ended up using a clear elastic to hold my hair and used the barrette on top.

I just love this barrette! It's so simple yet so gorgeous! It looks great as a casual look but also can be used for an elegant look. Most importantly it holds up my thick curly hair without falling out or not holding enough hair to make the style look nice, highly recommend!

This is such a nice Hoop and pin metal loop barrette. it comes in two separate pieces. The hoop itself and the pin that you put through the hoop to keep the hair up. It is such a simple and classic hair accessory, but yet it looks so refine and elegant. My hair is shoulder length, and doing a half ponytail look with the help of this Hoop and Pin barrette is super simple and best of all looks great. I am very happy I was able to try it.

I have thick and I do mean thick coily hair and this thing doesn't work that well. Having never used a pin I expected the package to have instructions but sadly did not. I did google how to use it but still couldn't get it to hold my hair. This is only for thin or straight hair.
Nei from Illinois
Super cute hoop and pin barrette, however my hair is fine /straight so no matter how much I try it just don't stay in place.
DanielleB83 from Decatur, AL
This came at just the right time! A day before I was to be in a wedding and was looking for something like this!! The gold pin barrette is stunning, especially in hair!! It's more for pretty thick hair. I have thick hair but had to keep adjusting it and the pin doesn't really secure it down. Looks great with pinned up, curled hair!
Anna K from Atlanta, GA
It's so adorable hair bralette. Looks gorgeous on my red hair. So easy to use and create lovely hairstyles in minutes
Bssig from North Carolina
I have very curly hair. This hoop and pin barrette easily goes through my hair to add a beautiful styling. I like the simplicity of the design. It does not pull to come out of the barrette either.
Bjohnson88 from Georgia
This is the cutest hair clip!! It's super easy to use and affordable. It doesn't work the greatest on my hair because it's so thin but it's perfect in my step daughters really thick curly hair. If you have thin hair than I wouldn't recommend it.

Was given this product for my honest feedback.
Product is sturdy and looks well made. Not cheap metal. It comes with no instructions, but was easy to find tutorials online. Took some practice and was able to do a simple style. My only issue was I don't have a lot of hair. So it kept slipping down a bit. But other then that. The product looks lovely on hair and recommend it for someone who has plenty of hair for it to stay put! I will be using it again soon for my outings in New York.
