Cute new DevaClips

I saw these on CurlMart and thought that they were cute!

The front part of my hair is getting long enough to get in my face, but not quite long enough to get out of the way. I had been clipping it with a silver duckbill to keep that section back a couple of inches while keeping my hair down and loose. It'll be nice to have clips that blend in more with the hair!

    LMK how they work compared to the silver ones. I don't leave mine in, I use bobby pins, but sometimes I could use a clip.

    So, do we think the intention of the color-coordinated clips is to wear them in public? I think they would still look funny, no matter what color! :wink:

    I had thought of that. Why else make them in colors? I do wear a silver one that I hide in my mop, so I wouldn't mind trying to hide a red one. :lol:

    Maybe these are an answer to the countless times we've gone to dinner, work, shopping, etc with our clips still in. :lol: At least they won't be quite as obvious in colors.

    LOL that's what I was thinking! :lol: I hopped in the car and drove to my son's school the other day, and thank goodness I caught myself in the mirror or I would have walked into the office with a silver one in the front. :shock:

    Me too! The photo makes them seem smaller than the metal duckbills I have. This could be a good thing.

    So you will have to update us when you get them to tell us if they are smaller; are they curved, etc.? Details!

    I picked some up this weekend. They are longer than the standard Deva clips but shorter than a duckbill. I like them so far. My hair didn't get caught in them like the traditional Deva clips. I also like the color idea so I can wear them while air drying during a Pilates class in the a.m.

    I can't figure out how to use them since they don't bend like the metal ones.
    Any pics of them in your hair?

    I don'have any pics of them in my hair. Used them for the first time this a.m. They definitely don't bend and are hard plastic. I never bent my silver Devaclips so they work ok for me.

    I got some of these yesterday at the curly hair show in a sample pack of Deva stuff. I love them! They are PERFECT for holding my thin hair in place for lift. Love 'em :).

    I got them in the same Deva pack. I'm actually thinking of ordering another set from Curlmart. 10 don't go far in my hair. It is a nice set and will be great for traveling. I sometimes think I spend more time picking out hair products for trips than clothes! At least, I can now just grab a bag. The Deva DVD was not what I expected but....love the rest of the kit.

    i just got mine in the mail today, and they are in my hair as it's airdrying right now.

    they are hard plastic, and as others have said, shorter than a duckbill clip but longer than the two-pronged silver ones from sallys that i normally use. they are the same shape as a duckbill clip but don't curve at all.

    they don't have any teeth or anything that would catch in the hair, and they are pretty strong. they seem to stand up fairly well.

    i will know better how they have worked once my hair is dry, so i'll update this message then.

    :D

    So they're about 2-3 inches long? I usually use the 2-prong ones (2 sets of 2 prongs each clip), and mine have a little bar across one of the sets of prongs that always gets caught in my hair. :x

    I'm waiting for more reviews before ordering yet another hair product. :oops: I bend my metal clips to keep them from flopping over, so I need to know these plastic ones will stay up.

    They'll stay up. If I try to put the metal ones in my hair when wet, they slide right out (never tried bending them) because my hair is thin and even more so when wet. Before I got the Deva clips, I was weighing one side of my hair down with a Pampered Chef little package clip, one that snaps into place :lol: . These stay in and up pretty darn good and I've put the Pampered Chef clip back into the kitchen :lol:.

    Here's a pic. The "clip" part is just under 2 inches. It feels secure, but I've not tried it in wet hair since I've just gotten them. It stood right up. no need to move anything around.

    Is that the way you clip your hair while letting it air dry? I was just wondering because I have never really got the clipping thing down yet

    Essentially, but just in different places on my head. I just plunked that one right up front for easier photographing. Maybe I should take a pic of wet clips... :lol: I use the same vertical position of the clip, and about that much hair, maybe a little less.

    Yeah that would be really good if you could do a pic. I have been just taking a few strands from each side and placing them on the other side because I cant get the clip thing down.
