“ Brand: New Look / Type: Hair Accessories „
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 attractive; it consists of a black and white zebra pattern. The claw part of the clip is gold. The design really stands out.
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 use 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 2 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. 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 have to admit it isn't as nice as my 'flowery' one and doesn't go with as many 'colours' as my flowery one and so I tend to wear this one when I am wearing a colour which it goes with.
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!
