Who was trying to bring back banana clips???

I think that is what she called them. Was it Paulie??

I BOUGHT ONE. Saw it at Claire's.

How the heck do I use it?

  • I'm here!! Yes it was me! OK, this is what you do. Just open the clip all the way. Hold with both hands & put it at the base of the back of your neck. Then slowly lift both sides of the clip & keep it open then when you get to the top of your head, clip it closed! :)

  • LOL, I didn't know they were coming back but I still own one from years back and wear it here and there.. I open mine place it at the base of the neck, hold my head back and pull the clip up and clamp it in the location I want it....

  • Oh my, I love a banana clip. First you flip your hair forward. Then take the open clip and put the hinge at the hairline at the base of your neck. Then flip your hair back and close the clip, with it snapping at the back of the crown of your head. Enjoy your very 80's look.

  • I think you can use them to hold a french twist, too. Grab your hair into a pony tail and twist it up, then fold the ends into it and clip.

  • I could never get the hang of a banana clip.

  • At first I didn't think I had enough hair for them, but once I figured it out it's pretty nice! Plus I can sleep in them and not feel the clip. With a pony tail my head gets all sore.
