The Hair Clip For Men
You wake up on a numb cheek and a drool-soaked hand, rub the goop from your bleary eyes, and immediately regret the “final final” from last night.
The clock reads 9:49 AM. It’s Sunday. You’re feeling a bit murky, but mostly thrilled, knowing you have just one responsibility today: sit on your couch and watch football.
Pure relaxation. It’s a wonderful thing. Only there is a problem – your hair is a grease-filled rat’s nest.
Sure, you could throw up a quick high ball and be done with it, but that becomes an obstacle when you lean your head back against the cushions, not to mention the tension headache you’ll have by late game kickoff time.
You could throw on your favorite longhairs lid, but do you really want to wear a hat inside your house all day?
You could just leave it down, but eventually you’re gonna have to eat something, and hair in your food is well-documented in #longhairproblemsformen.
Now kickoff is in four minutes, you haven’t even had coffee much less prepared any food. To add to your frustration, a thick bang just fell down from the top of your head and slashed open your cornea. What. The. Hell.
Fear not, friend. We have your solution.
It’s not rocket surgery – a standard hair clip for men is the perfect way to keep those pesky bangs out of your face. What makes it a hair clip for men? The fact that you’re wearing it.
The clip is virtually tension-free, so you won’t get those dreaded hairline aches after 6-12 hours of having it in. Plus, a pack of five is only a few bucks at your local drug store.
The real magic of the clip is that it works in any situation where you don’t need the formality of a proper hairstyle, but you simply don’t want hair in your face. It works great after the shower, surfing, walking out of the gym and pulling out your sweaty hair tie, even sleeping. Be creative. It’s a versatile tool.
One thing to note – don’t expect any style points from your dog or the postman after you throw the clip in. But who cares, it’s an instrument of utility, not a fashion accessory.
Here’s how to implement the hair clip for men
With one hand, acquire the desired amount of hair you wish to subjugate, usually whatever tends to fall in your eyes, and pull backwards (not too hard; a little slack ensures all-day comfort).
Great, got that out of your system? Then get your ass back on that couch, son. It’s kickoff time.
