No gal likes having her hair brushed, combed, pulled, tweaked
and twisted into pigtails and ponys, especially feisty little
ladies who have playtime, not plait-time on their minds.
Clippies, the modern alternative to ginormous floppy bows and
pinchy, pointy barrettes. With cool names like ashton blocks and
ava argyle, each grosgrain-covered hair clip is designed without
embellishments to be simple (no magnets or clasps) yet
Better yet, each clip helps to highlight - not hide - baby's
face, pinning uneven bangs in place with a color-coordinated foam
grip that easily stays in no matter what the hair type.
