I wanted some for clipping back my hair in summer – its so long now, down past my waist I wanted to keep it up so its cooler – and stops me getting it caught in wheelchair wheels!! Didn’t have a great sucess with the three I chose though.
Beautiful Ladies Vintage Gold Tone Chunky Metal Hair Claw 11cm Clip Diamante Crystal Butterfly in 5 Colours
I really love this, its excellent quality but…it slips on my hair as it’s so heavy and my hair is very long and silky slippery. Shame, but I’ll find some way of pinning it in 🙂 Not a huge success
niceeshop(TM) Vintage Crystal Butterfly Hairpins Hair Stick for Hair Clip (Pink Love Heart Crystal)
This was really very pretty but sadly arrived broken. Looking at it I can see that the broken part is easy to snap. It left the spring part sticking into head if I’d been using it. Its also bigger and heavier than expected. On the plus side the seller was very prompt with refund.
French clip Hair Clip – 6.9 cm | Handmade in France
this is really very pretty, reminds me of a pearly shell effect but….my hair is long, waist length, and it just won’t hold it securely. The clip part is spring arched but won’t grip all my hair without sliding out or slipping round so that the pretty part is on the rear and all that’s seen is the spring 😦 I tried putting a covered elastic on my hair first and that does stop it slipping but it shows under the clip – not the look I wanted. Maybe its my hair though….
So if anyone’s got recommendations for good, functional hair clips please tell me…..
