Everyone with long hair will be familiar with the constant battle to keep most of your hair in place for a decent length of time. The common ponytail works fairly well for normal day-to-day activities but it hardly qualifies as a glamorous hair-do, while the fancier hair styles tend to fall apart at the first signs of movement and take way too much effort for what they are. There is also the problem of hurting your hair (and your scalp!) with the various available hair accessories. We all know the nightmare of removing elastic bands from tangled hair, the horror of trying to tease out a hair pin or the short, sharp pain that comes with claw clips digging into your scalp when you accidentally lean into them.
The Answer to Bad Hair Days
So, for those of us who want a stylish, safe and secure hair-do Twist ‘N Clip is the way to go. It is a very simple hair accessory that is convenient to use, holds your hair in place without actually hurting it and is extremely versatile, allowing you do up your hair to suit any occasion. Now, you might be skeptical about it, seeing as it looks like a mere twist of plastic but I can assure you that the Twist ‘N Clip does its job just fine. As with all good tools, it is the design that counts and the Twist ‘N Clip has been carefully crafted to pin down all kinds of hair, whether it is thin and wispy or thick and curly. The inventor of Twist ‘N Clip, Rachel Taylor, made the conscious effort to ensure that it has enough tension to hold thinner hair in place, at the same time uses reverse tension to hold down thicker hair as well. It is also impossibly easy and fuss-free to use. Just follow these four simple steps:
- Collect your hair into a ponytail at around medium-height
- Twistyour ponytail upwards for about 2-4 turns, depending on how tight you want your hairto be and the length of your hair
- Spread the Twist ‘N Clip open and slide it horizontally under your ponytail
- Clip the Twist ‘N Clip like a giant safety pin by simply releasing it and pressing the straight end into the curved end
You can play around with these basic steps to achieve all sorts of hair styles. For example, you can gather all your hair into a really thick upward ponytail and insert the Twist ‘N Clip nearer the ends of your ponytail, which will give you a chic, nearly a French-twist look. Or you can gather only half of your hair and insert the Twist ‘N Clip nearer the bottom of your upward ponytail, which will give you a more relaxed and casual hairdo. One of my favorites is what I call the Peacock. It involves gathering all your hair into quite a loose upward ponytail and then clipping the Twist ‘N Clip around the middle of your ponytail. If all goes well, your ponytail should fan out like the tail of a peacock which makes it quite an eye-catching hairdo.
Looks aside, the Twist ‘N Clip is also suitable for all sorts of occasions, including your regular sports sessions. As a regular runner myself, I find it very frustrating when the elastic band gives way during my runs and I have to stop to do up my hair again. There seems to be no hair accessory that can stay in place for the entirety of my runs without needing to pull my hair so tightly that I get a headache. That is why I am glad to say that the Twist ‘N Clip works like a miracle: not a strand was out of place when I finished my workout.
Tattle Tail Sensation
Now, for the best part about the Twist ‘N Clip. Your hair accessory can now have its own accessory because the Twist ‘N Clip comes with a variety of Tattle Tails. These are dangly, bejeweled tassels that hang from your Twist ‘N Clip, adding a certain elegance to your hairdo. Of course, you can be creative and make your own Tattle Tails, brightly-colored ribbons are definitely one way brighten up anyone’s day. So, for those despairing long-haired souls, you might just find hope and convenience in Twist ‘N Clip.
