I love these Scunci clips!! I have THICK and I mean thick hair, so it takes a very durable clip to hold even half of my hair up. These clips are super affordable at Kmart, Target, etc, and have multiple uses! You can either put your hair all up, half up, etc. Personally, I like to wear my hair half up and I've found that using a clip like this works better than a hair tie in keeping the volume up on the part of my hair that is up. Love these clips. Would definitely purchase again and highly recommend!
