I do not think I have ever left my house without one of these hair clips in my backpack or handbag. Hair accessories have been around since Ancient Times, used initially for decorative purposes. These grasp clips, featuring cross sectional combs, are not only simple in design but perhaps more importantly, easy to use and practical. What I like about these clips in particular are that they do not only serve the purpose of holding my hair in place; in addition to holding hair in place, these clips are also handy for holding thing strings in place, such as hair ties and headphone cords!
