If I had to decide on a number of phrases and phrases to explain my hair, I’d most likely go along with lengthy, positive, straight and as slippery because the escargot Julia Roberts sends flying throughout the room within the dinner scene from Fairly Lady.
Evidently, getting my hair to remain in a bun is a problem. No sooner do I get it twisted into a pleasant messy topknot than it begins slip-sliding its means out. The issue may be barely remedied with dry texturizing spray (Oribe’s is wonderful, Kristen Ess’s is my favourite dupe). Or I may resort to utilizing about 37 bobby pins to anchor issues in place.
However right here’s the factor. I don’t wish to hassle with bobby pins, and it’s annoying to do the entire texture-spray factor each time I wish to throw my hair in a bun. And between Zoom ballet class a number of occasions every week (Dansique Health, for my fellow grown-up dancers) and dealing from dwelling (I’m a author and I actually can’t write when my hair is down), I find yourself throwing my hair in a bun lots.
I needed one fast, straightforward factor I may use to carry my hair up. I’d already tried a number of with various levels of success. This octopus clip by Free Individuals held a messy bun okay sufficient, however it dug into my head, and ache shouldn’t be a top quality I’m after in a hair accent. This claw clip by J. Crew was snug, however my wimpy hair slid proper out.
Lastly, I found this unusual-looking jaw clip on the France Luxe web site. I’d by no means seen a clip with two rows of tooth earlier than. The outline promised “a superior grip” and two fine-haired reviewers stated it labored for them. I ordered it, and when it arrived, I spotted two issues:
1) It seemed a bit just like the creature with two mouths within the Alien motion pictures and
2) I had found the Holy Grail of hair clips for fine-haired folks.
It was tremendous snug, my messy topknot lasted virtually eternally in the course of the workday, and after I wore it to ballet class my bun survived petit allegro 100% intact (I want I may say the identical factor for my delight – I’m a horrible jumper).
The important thing distinction is the double row of tooth, which do certainly grip your hair and stop sliding in a reasonably miraculous means. Now, the one downside is that this clip usually prices (deep breath)… $38. Sure, that’s some huge cash to pay for a hair clip, however the high quality is gorgeous (not like some flimsy drugstore clips) and it’s attainable to get it on sale. I picked it up when France Luxe had 30% off over the vacations, and I feel it’s price it — particularly should you amortize/rationalize by contemplating the price of cheapie drugstore clips that will break and have to get replaced.
Loopy? Perhaps! However loopy with a pleasant, long-lasting, messy bun is one thing I can dwell with.
