      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A pretty and stylish hair clip that can keep even thick hair in place.

      I don't own many hair clips and whenever I pin any bits of my hair back I have always just used kirby grips. It wasn't until shopping in New Look a while back when I noticed these pretty bulldog hair clips, and there was quite a wide range to choose from, with different sizes and patterns on them. I bought a pack of 3 mini clips and one that is shown in the image above. The pack of 3 cost me £3.99 and the big one by itself costs £2.99. The big hair clip is still available online on the New Look website and there are a few different patterns to choose from.

      I bought this big one to clip all of my hair back, and the smallers one for when i only want to clip a bit of my hair back. I have quite thick hair and it used to be quite long, although recently I have had it cut shorter. The clip still managed to hold my hair back when it was long though and so I would recommend this for those with long thick hair who struggle to find a clip that can hold it all back. I may have to take it out and put it back in place at least once during the day, but as it's a clip this is very easy and quick to do and so really doesn't bother me!

      One of the smaller clips I bought actually fell apart after a few months of use. It was still usable as it did not actually break, but the plastic bit that has the pattern on fell off and so it was just a gold clip with the remains of the glue on it, so it didn't exactly look nice. I have not had this problem with the larger clip yet but even if this does happen I wouldn't mind buying another at only £2.99, and I have had it for a few months now too.

      The clip doesn't hurt my head even when I do fix it in place quite tightly so that it doesn't become loose easily. I know from experience that some clips and headbands can hurt your head after wearing them for some time and so I am glad this one does not.

      As I mentioned this is still available on the New Look website as well as in New Look stores. I was in my nearest New Look last weekend and they still had a lot of clips available as well as the smaller ones too, which I cannot seem to find on their website anymore. They also had a promotion on for buy one get one free on their jewellery and hair accessories, so if you are quick then you could get some even cheaper!

        A really pretty accessory!

        I bought this clip after receiving a similar one as a gift. This one is identical to the one I had for Christmas, but is a different design. To look at this is very attractive; it consists of 'watercolours' making up a 'blended' flowery pattern. It's very girlie.

        I always used to wear clips like these when I was younger - but the plastic brown ones you get. When I started my job as a waitress a number of years ago, I wore the 'plastic brown' clip and because I was running around all day, my hair kept coming undone and falling out of the clip which was annoying.
        However, I was pleased when this clip actually held my hair in place and now I wear it to work every day.
        The clip is made from a metal material and is quite strong. However, I am still careful as I know that clips like these can easily break. This clip is very sturdy and has had a lot of us and yet it is still going strong. I have noticed that due to the fact that the clip is made from metal, it has got a number of scratches on it, although you can't notice it when you are wearing it - only when you look really closely. I have had my clip for around 6 months now and I have had a lot of use from it.

        I am not very good when it comes to styling my hair, plus the fact that I have hair that doesn't want to do as it's told. When I wear this clip (in fact I think this is the only way you can wear it, but I might be wrong?) - I put my hair into a 'low ponytail' and then clip the 'tail' to the back of my head.

        I have dark hair and so I think that this clip really stands out. Many people have commented on how pretty my clip is which is nice. When I'm at work, we have to wear a plain black uniform and so I like that I can 'brighten' myself up a little bit with this little accessory.

        I was amazed at the price!! I paid £2.99 for this clip and not only does it look great but it is of excellent quality too. In the past I have paid around £5 for a similar clip and they have broken straight away!!
        I would definitely recommend this hair clip!

        Thanks for reading!
