They did not come with instructions, but I just went to the add again and followed the insutructions there. Just like the picture though. I have attempted to use these on multiple occasions, and they are horrible! Do not use if you have long hair! Your hair will get stuck in these, and you will have to take time to get your hair out without damaging your hair. Only once was I able to get some kind of result similar to theirs, and that was with someone else putting it in my hair. I am super disappointed that it doesn't work like I had hoped. :( great idea though.
