Product Description

Color: Rainbow

New, improved Glowbys with 25% smaller barrette for an even lower profile in your hair; 14" fibers, smaller CR1220 batteries. Otherwise, New Glowbys are exactly like the original Glowbys. Light up your hair with Glowbys fiber optic hair accessories! Glowbys sell elsewhere for up to $10 ea! Great for any nighttime event - prom, holidays, parties, nightlife, concerts, raves, festivals, weddings, and more! The ideal accessory for New Years Eve, Mardi Gras, St Patrick's Day, Burning Man, etc.! Glowbys are illuminated thin fiberoptic strands which clip to your hair to create many brilliant stars of light (50-60 fibers per Glowby, with the longest fibers 14" long). A small barrette (1.3" x 0.6") houses two small batteries (BATTERIES INCLUDED) and a light source, which lights up the ends of the fibers. GLOWBYS ARE REUSABLE - you can wear them again and again. Just change the batteries when Glowbys become too dim, typically 8 hours. Slide lid slightly open to turn on/off. Wearing Glowbys - Wear the thin barrette under the hair so that only the lights are visible. Attach underneath the top layer of hair. The barrette will be covered, but the Glowbys lights will still be visible. Glowbys are 15" long, but can be cut to any length - a star of light appears wherever the fibers are cut. Glowbys come in a cascade cut pattern, but they can be arranged in almost any pattern depending on the your hair style - use your imagination! Hair Stylists - just attach Glowbys and treat the fibers like strands of hair - cut, loop, etc. Caution: Do NOT use a curling iron or hair dryer on Glowbys; HIGH heat will melt the optical fibers. Note that some of the pictures show girls wearing multiple Glowbys. In particular, the girl with pigtails in the first picture is actually wearing 4 Glowbys - 2 blue and 2 white on either side.

These were a huge hit for Halloween, my daughter loved them.

Keep the plastic thing that goes between the batteries so you can turn them off.

I ordered 2 of these and put them in my hair for new years. I got tons of compliments and they looked great.
There are several ways to wear them in your hair so experiment with what works best with your hair. I had them flipped up a bit so the strands were spread everywhere and it looked like I had little lights floating all around my head.
If you just put the barrettes over your hair and don't do anything else they just make a neat streak of lights going down your hair. I also tried using a bobby pin to spread out the fibers to make more of a fan shape and it worked pretty well.
Over all I really am happy with this product and will use them over and over again :)

I got the Glowbys LED Fiber Optic Light-Up Hair Barrette Green. I ordered from Flashing Panda. I chose standard shipping and it was supposed to arrive the 18th-21st and it arrived early, the 15th! -Only a few days after ordering it. It works great and is pretty and bright. It came with the 2 batteries in it, they are flat and circular (Lithium Cell CR 1220). If i ever need to change the batteries, they are very easily accessible. The item is light weight too. I can't wait to wear it! :)

Color Name: Rainbow
I ordered Glowbys in Rainbow, Gold, White, Violet, and Pink. The person who wrote the 1 star review who bought the gold is correct: the Gold color is more subtle and not very bright. The Rainbow, White, Violet and Pink were very bright. The Rainbow rotates from blue to red to green in a cycle - it's not multiple colors all at once. You can cut the strands and the light will shine at the cut ends. I also used scissors to "nick" the strands to create more light points. There are between 30 and 50 fiber optic strands per clip - the product photo of the girl wearing blue on one side and white on the other probably has two clips on each side. The clip is cheap black plastic with a metal bar underneath to fasten. I have very fine hair so I had to hairspray my hair first and then clip the Glowby into place. DO NOT USE A CURLING IRON ON GLOWBYS.

After your party, just slide the top part of the clip half-way off to disconnect the battery so you can save them and use again later.

My friend and I had a blast with these! We received lots of compliments at the neon party!! :)

this was a great accessory to have. It unfortunately did not turn off after unclasping the barrett, however I saved the plastic that was removed from the battery and replaced it.

Color Name: Rainbow
I purchased the LED Fiber Optic Light-Up Hair Strands/Barrette to pass out to girls that came to my birthday party the other week. The girls all liked them and had great fun with them. We went out to a night club that had lasers, glow in the dark stuff, glow sticks, etc. and the fiber optic hair strands were a success. There is no on/off button but you can slide the battery compartment open to turn it off. Also the batteries are replaceable, which is nice.

Very cool hair clip! I bought the rainbow color and it does not disappoint! The batteries have seemed to last forever and I wore it one night for 6 hours and my 4 year old plays with it for hours every couple of nights. One clip won't give you the look of the girl in the picture (with pigtails).. but one is enough to give you just a hint of glow throughout your hair. I would highly recommend this for either a club/rave night, or even as a dress up toy for younger girls. I'm definitely ordering more.

Glowby's cost hardly anything but they're sturdy and they do EXACTLY what they say they do. For some reason, I thought the barrette bit would come with blue rhinestones on theme but I can always add them when I feel like it. The barrettes are nice and discrete (for an adult). I doubt they wouldn't be noticed on someone with blonde hair though.
