These 4 inch big hair bear claw non slip clips are fantastic. Not only can i use them for my super thick and curly hair, to style the way I want it at a moments notice, i can also use them for when I am cutting hair and need to get those large thick clumps of hair out of my way so I don't mess up the cut! These are super strurdy clips with great metal spring opening and closing ability, and also have a nice wide thumb pad for pressing so that it makes it easy to use. These are small enough to take in my purse with me, so that on a hot day I can put my hair up off my neck and be cooler. I love them!
