  1. I was thinking about this box…however it seems like may ship in May so I based on all of the delays lol – I should have plenty of time to consider prior to it actually shipping. All joking (semi) aside, I am kind of interested. I love hair products, tools etc however based on her last box bombing, it may include a horrible hat and …I haven’t a clue as the spoiler is a great item and without stating the total value of the box and all of the quarterly changes, I am worried to commit $100 to the unknown. Am I alone?

    • I’m sticking with it for now because I love hair products. I doubt I will continue afterwards unless there is an amazing spoiler.

      • I’m debating buying now and risking or waiting and buying if it goes on best of quarterly. Does anyone know when it will actually ship? We are halfway into April and this was a ship in march box

    • You are not alone I ordered and cancelled about seven time now. I just can’t seem to commit. i cant wear headbands, and I am fearful that it will be a headband or something that just does for my hair. I was told by quarterly that they will including a brush along with the above item. I also asked if they are going to add something else in the box because the delay. No reply as of yet.

      • Definitely let us know if they do answer re an additional item. I subscribed end of February/beginning of March and I just got an email telling me the box shipped. However, delivery date is still estimated at at least a week away. I believe this comes UPS. Do we need to sign for it? That’s always a problem where I live.

  2. Has anybody been charged for this box yet?

  3. Maybe someone can help me out with this. I’ve never ordered her box before, but am really interested in this one! My only concern is that the high value item would be something I already own. (I’m a product and tool junkie so don’t need a nice blowdryer, etc.)

    Does Nina offer boxes after the initial shipment? Or do you HAVE to order now to get this box? I’d love to see spoilers before purchasing, but am afraid it will be out of stock.

    • You can’t order the box after it’s shipped, but if the box doesn’t sell out, it will eventually appear on Best of Quarterly. Not all boxes are available afterwards, but the last couple have been and I’d expect that this one would be too.

  4. While I have not liked her past boxes, a hair themed box sounds pretty good. The spoiler looks great to me. I have hated the hats in her boxes, though, and fear a significant portion of the value will be a hat. Or a hair straightener…

    How does this work? Will we be able to buy the box after it ships and there’s a reveal?

  5. I have this dry shampoo touch up stick and recommend it for those who are looking for a good one. It is more travel friendly than others and works well, has no odor, and is more precise than sprays. I love the brand too

  6. I cancelled. I was super excited to sign up after seeing past boxes, but after the delays and then a hair oriented box? I have naturally curly hair, I don’t need a straightener etc. maybe I’ll regret it but after the no return policy…$100 was too much of a risk to take

  7. This spoiler made me sign up. I cancelled my last Nina box after seeing the spoilers and then cancelled all together when I thought that MSA, Design Sponge and Nina would all ship in the same month. Had I known that none would actually ship in March, I probably would have just stayed subscribed, but oh well.

    I really like that brand of hair products and I like dry shampoo, but I wouldn’t spend that much for it, so it seemed like a nice choice. It would be great to get a hair brush or tool as well as products, but I really hope there isn’t a hat. Nina and I don’t see eye to eye on hats.

  8. It’s similar to dry shampoo, but it helps build volume for styling. Considering I have trouble getting volume on top of my head, I’ll give it a try.

  9. BJ looks like she’s including ankle weights which would make for a heavier box. Not excited.

    • I should have written Bianca Jade and not BJ….my bad

  10. I have loved almost everything I have ever gotten from Nina – except that weird plastic shoe (but even that was unique for a sub box). I know everyone hates the last box, but I have carried that fringe purse every day since I got it and I get a million compliments on it.
    I also love dry shampoo so much. I wish it was in every box. So yes, this box is already starting out a winner for me!
    Anybody know when the Zoe box ships? I subbed for the year and haven’t gotten a word about shipping – but I do get daily styling tip emails….

    • I received an email with the subject line, “It’s almost time”… stating that shipping is just around the corner and a link to verify my shipping info. Yay πŸ™‚

    • Starts shipping April 1st!

  11. A hairdresser used that on me years ago and at that time it was very hard to find, not sure about now… However, the one time I used it, it was a wonderful product. It is a dry shampoo/powder that is dispersed in the brush. At least that’s how it used to be…. Still not swayed to sign up for the box again as of yet. I’m waiting to see what I get in Rachel Zoe’s.

  12. The number of posts I see about Quarterly boxes containing the phrase “shipping update” really discourages me from getting anything from them.

  13. I don’t use dry shampoo, but I do appreciate that it looks like a high quality item.

    Did you see that Bianca posted hints on her FB page??!

    • Thanks for letting me know!

      • Please tell me that I did not see metallic tattoos as a spoiler for Bianca Jade. I’m still getting the box, but no one I know wants tattoos.

        I do not need volume in my hair LOL. I’m still staying subscribe for now.

        • Its either tattoos or a surfboard! Maybe thats why she said they are really heavy! hehehehe.

          • Instagram said Tribal tattoos:( A surfboard would have been fun!

    • She also posted @ instagram. I like MIZ07 hints so far…

      • I like all the other spoilers!

      • I really want to sign up for this box, because I am a hair product junkie… Problem is, I have curly hair so new products will either be amazing or a disaster.

        Dry shampoo, no thanks. My already dry hair can’t handle that.

        Knowing there are 9 other items, I am still thinking about it!

  14. Amika dry shampoo is the best ATM

  15. I like it.

  16. A dry shampoo, really? No, gracias.

    • From what I can tell, it’s just a brush to apply dry shampoo, right? And I don’t use dry shampoo, so definitely not interested in that… (don’t subscribe to box but have been tempted to in the past).

  17. I have a feeling that pretty much nothing from this box is going to end up on the swap site!

    I am already super jealous.
