i personally am not a big hair clip fan because i feel as if hair ties fit much better in your hair and are more comfortable. i used to hate when i would wear a clip and be sitting on the couch and then my husband comes and just basically pushes me back on the couch... ouch! i don't know about you but i have extremely thin hair so that definately hurt. i would say though out of all the clips this one is probably one the better ones. i like the name brand and that is what i actually use for my hair ties, plus it does not pull your hair and it holds it well. i just don't really like to wear them because if your hair is thin it's not good to put it back too much because it will pull your hair more. so if you are going to be wearing this i think it's nice when you go out with a certain outfit or for those of you who have pleanty of hair and are not sensitive than this is probably perfect for you.
