Does the Twist ‘N Clip Really Work?

Does the Twist 'N Clip work?Twist ‘N Clip is designed to keep your hair up in several different styles, without ripping your hair out, or causing you any undue pain. The magic is in the design, which combines the functions of a bobby pin and a safety pin into one compact tool. But how good is it really at keeping your hair up all day, and will you have to constantly adjust it throughout the day?

Overview
You’re probably no stranger to the drawbacks of using other hair containment methods like a claw clip, or a rubber band. Even the infamous scrunchy is not the best thing for every situation. Women have been trying to figure out the perfect apparatus for keeping their hair where they want it for several generations now. Aside from that it’s just nice to have many different options when styling your hair so that you’re not always looking the same way day after day.

The Claim
The Twist ‘N Clip says that it holds your hair in place all day, which for many of us would be a blessing, and a welcome change from always having to go to the bathroom to make adjustments. They say that it comes in multiple colors, so you can either match it to your hair to make it nearly invisible.

They say that the clip adjust to the type of hair you have as well, expanding to fit the thickest and curliest hair, or constricting to accommodate thin or lifeless hair. That’s perhaps one of its most unique features, the way it can bend to fit thick hair and styles where you’ve got the hair all bunched together, but then also be able to stay in place with thin hair that is notorious for coming undone, and looking sloppy.

The Hype
Hair and beauty products always have some hype to them, because in the promotional ads they make it look so easy to use, and make the models look so great when they have it in their hair. In the back of your mind you know there’s got to be some gap between the way your hair will look with it, but if you can suspend that disbelief long enough to make a purchase, they’ve got you.

The Cost
A 2 for 1 deal on Twist ‘N Clip is $24 which gets you a total of 6 clips of the color of your choice, the bonus pack as well as a second Tattle Tail, and a styling guide. It would be nice if they let you mix up the colors, because sometimes you don’t necessarily want it to be indivisible, and if you’re wearing a black dress but don’t have black hair it would be nice to coordinate your clip to the dress. They do have the Tattle Tail accessory in black, and perhaps that is their way of making up the difference. It’s a minor gripe, and we’re just being picky.

The Commitment
The pitch for this is mostly based on it being a time saver over what you’re currently using to keep your hair up and looking good. Once you become adept with it, you should be able to create a nice style just by gathering your hair the same way you would to make a pony tail, and clipping it up with this.

Evaluation
Twist ‘N Clip is a rather simple, yet innovate clip, and you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it yourself. But that shouldn’t stop you from getting it and using it. It’s the simple designs that usually hold up to real world testing. One thing that people have commented on is the comfort level. If you’ve ever gotten a headache from having to tie your hair up ultra tight, you will appreciate the way this keeps everything in place without yanking on your hair all day.

Just by looking at the design you can easily tell why it works so well. I’m sick and tired of having to buy new rubber bands every two weeks, I don’t know if I’m the only one who tends to lose them a lot, but I go through a bag of rubber bands real quick. This one looks big but not too big that it’s cumbersome to use, I won’t lose it as often and I think it’s a smart design.

I am in the same boat as you. I am tired of purchasing scrunchies every week that break so easy. I was hoping more reviews were done on this as I seen the TV ad and it looks easy, but sometimes looks can be deceiving. I like that many hairstyles are offered. I will go ahead and buy this from Amazon for half the cost. If it doesn’t work, then I can add it to my collection of junk. The design is cool so here is hoping it works. I will keep you all informed.

A coworker gave me one of these. My hair is thick, straight, and past my waist. Ponytails hurt my scalp the the hair bands slip out because my hair is so straight and slick. This clip allows me to wear my hair up all day without hurting my head, and it stays in place better than anything I have ever tried.
