I was so excited when I found out about this box. I’ve been looking for hair boxes forever, and for a while they just didn’t exist! A few of them are cropping up now, but this one looked awesome because it wasn’t just product – it had accessories!
This box ships bi-monthly, and this was the first shipment of the year. A few delays meant that the January box was delivered in February, but that isn’t uncommon and it isn’t a big issue when subscribers are kept in the loop! There was also a blank notecard included in the box, I’m assuming as a bonus item thrown in!
Pink Abstract Round Wide Tooth Comb – $14.50
I will set the stage for this review by saying that my hair is about 3 feet long – hence the reason I was looking forward to hair boxes becoming a thing! This comb got through my (dry) hair very smoothly, and quickly and effectively detangled it. Honestly, I think I lost less hair using this comb that I do generally when I brush (this makes sense because of the bristles vs. the comb tines), so I think I might just start using this regularly to cut back on all the hair fall I get! Aside from effectiveness, this comb is beautiful. I’ve never owned such a beautiful hair styling tool!
Black Abstract Hair Clip – $8.00
The curator of this box, Amber, stated in the little letter for subscribers that most of these products could double as hairstyling tools and hair accessories. This is one of those pieces – it would be great for sectioning hair when blowdrying or curling, or it would also work as a hair accessory for an updo or half up style. The little flecks of color in the resin are beautiful and this piece seems well made.
Black/Cream Abstract Hair Claw – $9.00
This claw clip is quite sturdy, and feels like it would take quite a bit of effort to snap one of the claws. That’s always been my biggest issue with claw clips, is that the individual claws break so easily. I don’t think I’ll have that problem here! This would be great for sectioning hair as well, or again, it can double as an accessory!
Tortoise Shell Mini Hair Clips – $6.00
These mini clips are another item that can double as hair styling tool and hair accessory. I personally don’t wear many hair claw clips like this, but I can see their use for sure. I have used them in updos in the past, and they’re very handy for keeping hair out of your face. These are some of the best quality I’ve seen.
Tortoise Shell Long Barrette – $7.00
This barrette is probably 4 inches long, and very slim. It holds quite a bit of hair, and would be the perfect way to pull your hair back on days when you don’t want it in your face. I am personally a huge fan or tortoise shell, so this is one of my favorite pieces in the box!
Verdict: I have looked for a hair accessory box everywhere and had no luck until this box came along. To put it simply, I love it. The items are all very high quality, they seem sturdy so far and the value is great. I calculated about $44.50 in value for this box, which is great for a $25 box. The values ascribed to each item seem to be very reasonable and comparable to other similar brands, so I am really impressed with this shipment!
