      This barrette does not hold thin hair at all and is a waste of money.

          I am so glad that I bought this. It holds my thick hair up all day. It is also very trendy and not like the old stand by hair clip.

          I use this to hold up some of my hair while I straighten other parts. My hair is too thick to use it to put my hair up for the day. It just won't hold heavy hair.

              Comments about Karina French Couture2-Prong Hair Clip:

              I have been putting my hair up in French twists since I was young. Now that I wear layered hair, I must use too many bobby pins to get the updo to look clean. This clip holds my hair in a twist with minimal pieces popping out. The style of the clip allows the little hairs popping out look like they fit with the updo.
              I recommend to all who use pins & or sticks. You will love it.

                  Comments about Karina French Couture2-Prong Hair Clip:

                  Don't even bother. I've had good experiences with this brand, and for whatever reason, all my "made in France" hair items have always held up to being battered. This clip, though, proves to be an exception to both.

                  My hair is fine, straight, and doesn't take well to being forced to do anything but just hanging naturally. This basically means I can be very hard on hair clips due to having to get them to maneuver through my very tightly wound hair. This clip, unfortunately, doesn't hold up to the abuse well and the middle prongs are prone to bending.

                  That said, I'm still using the clip, which remain intact without any broken prongs, so the clip isn't as flimsy as it may seem from the bendy prongs. However, I tend to have to clip my hair back in hair more often than I'd like since the clip slips out of place every once in a while since I can't tighten my hair as necessary to keep a clip in place.

                          I imagine this would work best for someone with texture to their hair. I've got very thick but straight hair and was seeking something that would gently hold my hair back without causing any pulling tension. I still end up lightly tying a hair tie in my loose pony tail to keep this thing in place or it starts to slowly slide down [sometimes to the point I'm not aware yet do NOT want people seeing my hair like that!]. So this would NOT work for someone with fine hair and probably be better for someone with curyly hair for the teeth to really grip in.

                            I'd been eyeing this pretty clip, it looked perfect for non-fussy quick updos. Which it would have been, had it not fallen apart at the spring after only a few uses. Very sad :( wish I could find my reciept so I could return it. Maybe mine was just defective.
