i just bought some, i'm not sure why as i don't know what to do with them!
im not one for extravagant hairstyles but dont mind half up half down, could they be used in this way??

i let my hair dry naturally..is there any way that they can be used to perhaps add volume or shape ..? im really clueless on how im going to use them so if anyone has any ideas theyd be well appreciated! thanks.

I am sure this is a :doh: moment, but I will ask anyway.... what are sectioning clips?

They are the little *fakkare* style clips that hairdressers use when styling/cutting/perming hair.

I haven't been able to get those thing to hold my hair at all. They are about as useless as the small plastic "claw-like" clips they try to use on my hair at the salon and that is pretty useless!

Sorry guess I'm not the one to answer! Hope someone has a better idea for you!

I would not wear these to secure a finished style...

Use them to section off hair when you're styling: blowdrying, ironing, roller setting, etc. This lets you start at the bottom section of your hair and work your way to the top, which is easier and more effective than just grabbing random pieces.

If you don't ever style your hair, then I'm not really sure why you bought them.

Oh wait I thought you were talking about this style of clips.

thanks guys, but do u think theyd be good for when airdrying? for example if i clipped some hair back would it add volume when i take it out..??

I have used a few to hold together curls as my hair dries, but I would never use them as a functional day-to-day clip.
