Default UB hardware?

Has anyone purchased hardware from UB? I am ordering some ribbon and didn't know about the quality of the clips/headbands. Any info is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Erin

I currently use the plastic headbands and think they are very good. But I've never used another brand to compare them to. HTH

I love their ribbon, but am not crazy about the headbands from them. I prefer to use headbands from hairparts.

The hardware is......okay......I have been disappointed in the plastic headbands in the past. I have gotten several that were warped and were completely unusable. I tried to use them anyway, but got complaints from customers that they fit weird on girls' heads. UB ribbon is also "okay". It's not bad, but not the best I've used either. I don't mind using the 3/8" ribbon, but most all of their ribbon looks cheap. I guess it's one of those "you get what you pay for" things. It is very inexpensive, but looks inexpensive. Just my opinion.

LOL! I actually love them! I get maybe 4 or 5 bad ones out of every gross, which isn't bad at all, IMO.

I really like their headbands too. Never had a bad one in the bunch.

I use the headbands from UB. I ordered a gross of 1/2" & of the 1" a couple months ago. I think I had less than 6 that were unusable. From what other people have said, maybe I just got a good batch. But as of yet, I have no complaint.

eeeekkkk....the 1 inch headbands are PAINFULLY bad!! Just awful crap!! People have recommended "heating them up" to re-shape them but I cant be bothered--warped and unusable...
I don't mind the ribbon, but yama is much much better....
I'd do a separate order from Hairparts if I were you for the hardware.
...just my opinion...
