“With a busy schedule and lots of running around, it’s easy to find yourself in a pickle with a nearly dead iPhone. This gift is perfect for pretty much anyone because let’s be real, the world is only getting busier! You’ll be the envy of the party with this as your holiday gift exchange present!” —Rockette Karen R.

Alicia-Lungren-Headshot“These hair pins can definitely work for anyone, but as a dancer with thick hair, they are a match made in heaven. The beautiful, brass hair pins are functional and can easily hold your hair in a bun, classic Rockette French twist or your favorite updo for holiday parties.” —Rockette Alicia L.
