If you have fine hair like I do, you're probably familiar with the challenge that hair clips can present. No sooner have you fastened them down than they've begun sliding down the back of your neck. The best hair clips for fine hair need extra grip so they're not constantly slipping out of place. There are several different features that help with this:
- Nonslip backing: Hair clips are typically made with smooth materials like plastic, or metal which makes it hard for them to grip your hair effectively. Rubber strips or silicone backing add texture and will keep even baby-fine locks in place better.
- Grippy coating: In lieu of rubber or silicone, some hair clips instead have a textured coating that serves a similar purpose, holding onto your hair so they don't slide down.
- Narrowly spaced teeth: Large gaps in between the teeth can allow hair to slide through more easily, so if you have fine hair, you may want to go with clips that have closely spaced or even fully interlocking teeth.
- Strong spring-loaded hinge A last thing that can be beneficial, at least for spring-loaded hair clips, is to have an extra strong spring. This allows the clip to clamp down tighter and hold your hair more securely in place.
If you're looking for basic clips to use at home while you're styling your hair (versus ones you'd wear out of the house), you'll also want to ensure they don't leave indentations in your fine hair. Silicone bands can help reduce this too.
With these features in mind, I've gathered a selection of the best hair clips for fine hair below. I made sure to include a wide range of styles and colors to help you find something that fits your wardrobe.
