I am so grateful to France Luxe for making these mini oval jaws! I have fine, slippery hair and these are a godsend. The spring is so strong that I can pull the whole top layer of my hair from both sides to the back of my head and clamp it like a mini ponytail at the back of my head with one of these, and wear it comfortably without the need to readjust it all day long. The plastic is very strong and beautiful in person, and despite the small size (check the dimensions in the description) the round handles make these easy to grip to put them in or take them out. Best of all, the jaws clamp together at the bottom, so the teeth don't poke into my head! These are nothing like the cheap version you would buy in a drugstore, and are well worth the high price. I can imagine these will last me decades if I don't lose them. I have bought many of these in my favorite colors, and I hope France Luxe will offer these in the future in Caramel Horn, Alba, South Sea, Nacro Mocha and Nacro Ivory, and I very much hope these will be a staple item that is always available at France Luxe. Highly recommended!
