Default head bands deformed

Not sure where to post this but I just got my shipment of headbands and they look awful. the ends are uneven or touching. they look like junk I feel bad even trying to sell them ; ( Is this normal? Can I bend them back some how or should I complain to the company? Out of 50 only a handful look decent ; (

I guess it depends on where you got them from.

Are they United Beads (UB)? Theirs are HORRIBLE. I only buy from Hairparts now..
Some people heat them and bend them...too much work I think.

How do they heat and bend them? I don't want to outright bad mouth the company. I did send them a message about them so I guess I will wait and see. I've just had a horrible few weeks with different companys and quality. I'm running out of places to shop else where. Very frustrating. I get so excited to get a shipment then it turns to sadness when I look inside. Boooooo ; (

I feel the need to correct my first post. I ordered 42 and 16 were horrible. Once I seperated them I had more good than I had thought. but still................ I hate to shop elsewhere I love the company but can't afford a loss like this right now either.

That's such a bummer. Are these the plastic ones or metal? I'm ordering some more so am concerned!

I know some people have heated them with a hairdryer or embossing gun & then reshaped them in the past. It is a lot of work though.

I ordered some off of etsy once and it included some directions for reshaping. I vaguely remember something about dropping them in boiling water and then reshaping them while they are still hot.
