best for hair up - only use if your hair is extra thick
This is a beautiful product which works well when paired with smart work wear. In Opera Silver it looks sophisticated yet formal and I often wear it with black, silver or grey. When I bought this product I did not realise that they really mean it when they describe it as 'extra volume' I have fairly thick hair and had imagined that I would be able to wear it instead of a hairtie for a ponytail, but this did not work! my hair slipped through very quickly when I tried this as it is simply not thick enough. Instead, I tried putting my hair up and when it had been folded over a few times this barrette did then hold it securely. Occasionally throughout a busy day at work I do have to re-do my hair. I think all this is fair given the description of the product.
