  1. Absolutely brilliant, claw clips work well when putting your hair up when it’s hot.

  2. Absolutely, I feel undressed without bobby pins (kirby grips).
    When at home I’ve recently been putting my hair up with claw clips. ficcare clips and flexi8 clips with bobby pins of course. It’ really quite enjoyable.

  3. Bobby pins are hair’s best friend.
    My mother kept my hair long as a boy and put them in my hair.
    I have continued to use them all my life.

  4. So great! Would
    Love to know how you keep your curls curly all day when wearing your hair down.

  5. Bobby pins are great, just remember that they work best (and look better) with the “teeth” towards your scalp. Obviously when you’re inserting them into a high/low ball, it doesn’t matter as much, but keep that in mind for other styles. They’re also useful for fishing your hair onto hair (and/or beard) beads.

  6. beware, sir
    to make a tight bun (cinnamon bun) on the wet hair can cause a strong pull on drying, with tearing of hair
    for my part, I always do it on dry hair
