I love these clips. Bought one in LA a few months ago, and I now have 4! I have very thick (yet fine) waist length hair and this is the first clip every that hods all my hair atop my head in a bun, or keeps it securely back in a half-do. Forget bigger clips—none of them worked. This is a strong, high-quality clip, made of the type of acetate and hardwares you’d expect of a a pair of luxury sunglasses. Nothing breaks, no parts to snag on…I can’t say enough in favor of these great clips!
