I was looking for a quality banana clip like I used to wear in the 1980's. This is it. The design was brilliant in the 1980's and here it is again. I ordered all 3 colors at the same time. A beautiful way to securely hold your medium/long hair back. This is the only hair clip that lets me show off my beautiful silver hair growing underneath by sweeping it up with my other hair. This clip is kind to your hair and will not yank or pull on it. Closure is smooth, "locks" securely, and will not get tangled in your hair. I tried drug store banana clips but had to throw them in the garbage - cheaply made with sharp teeth. Many years ago, you could get some quality well made hair items in the drugstore, not anymore. Thank goodness for France Luxe where I can find beautifully made hair accessories that work and are of high quality. I spend a lot of money on high end hair care products to keep my hair shiny and healthy and I only trust France Luxe items in my hair (no ripping, yanking, or pulling on my hair).
