My daughter Mia was pretty close to bald until she was two. When her hair finally started to grow in and I wanted to pin back her bangs, the only clips that worked were from my friend Jenny. She has an adorable Etsy shop (Sugar Plumb Tree) where she sells handmade accessories for sweet little ones.
She made this clip to coordinate with Mia's outfit for a wedding:
And several others just for fun:
I've ordered a few things from her shop and her clips are by far the best! She uses an everyday non-slip material to keep clips in place and I asked her if I could share it with you here today (thanks, Jenny!).
The key is adding shelf liner (the spongy waffle weave kind - how's that for a professional description) to the inside of the clip grip. You can find a single roll at most stores for around $5.00...and that roll will make thousands of clips!
I bought a roll of shelf liner to attempt making some clips myself but I first started by adding a small strip to the clips we already have that constantly fall out of Mia's hair. I cut a strip the length of the clip and attached it to the top prong with a small amount of hot glue.
Totally did the trick - no more skiwampas clip! Best of all it's super easy and super affordable. So, go buy yourself a roll and put the clip adjusting madness to an end!
