Side note: After listening to this song 10+ times while reading the youtube comments, I have thoroughly given up on deciphering which language it is. perhaps others can figure it out? warning though, the song is extremely cheeeesy at parts. lol
A beauty fad that has been popular this past year is the "magic" fringe holder that keeps your hair in place, after simply slapping it on your head. Technically speaking, it's a piece of velcro (the spiky side) which grips your hair in place in lieu of a regular hair clip. Surprisingly, the hold is pretty dang strong, and is a reliable alternative to headbands when washing your face, studying etc. The best thing about it is that it is extremely lightweight, I can barely feel it. Good-because it won't crimp your hair. Bad- because your likely to forget. Therefore, if your living in a dorm, and that someone you've been crushin on comes knockin at ur door, you don't want to look dumb, with a piece of fluorescent felt on your head. That's also why I opted for the black color when I purchased one during my last trip to Taiwan. (just joking! )
There are myriad reviews of these products all over the web, so I won't scrutinize the details. However, I did notice that there haven't been comparisons between the two more "popular brands". Ergo... here is my humble opinion of these two fringe-holders.
- Perk: Lightweight and versatile.
- Perk: You can roll it up with the spikeys facing outwards and then use it as a pseudo "hair roller" for your bangs"
- Perk: Bigger "surface area" for holding.
- Perk: Very good 'hold'
- Blah: mm... can't think of any
- Perk: Looks "cute" with the bow on the back.
- Blah: Heavier (due to the decorated backing)
- Blah: Not as bendable... and overall doesn't hold as welll.
Clearly... Dariya wins by a handful.
So in conclusion, if you want to get a good useful piece of hairvelcro, I'd highly recommend getting Dariya, Kamipita is a pretty big waste of money... despite the cute exterior, it doesn't complete its deed as efficiently.
... or you could just go to the crafts store to buy a velcro kit to cut yourself.
