hair clips

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

Product Details   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…..

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
