Default clips for adults

A lady I know wants to find a clip for when she pulls her hair half back, but she has thick hair so needs a clip big enough and doesn't want anything gaudy or teenish. Anyone have ideas or pics?

what about a french clip in a larger size then do a simple tuxedo bow on it in a sophisticated stripe like RABOM's preppy stripes in Black or green or seaside... something earthy...Neutral

Could you cover one of those rounded french clips...like this (but no cutout, I've seen them at Kroger, Walgreens, CVS, WalMart, etc.) with green/black felt and then put maybe like 3 roses on it?

I think those are cute plain! They'd probably look worse if I tried something with them-haha. I need to get a better idea of what she has in mind, because a lot of those bigger clips seem decorative enough to me that there wouldn't really need to be anything done to them?!

If you like the cutout one, you could even do like...the woven headbands weave on each side...similar to how you would do it for flip flops?

Yeah-this is originally what I had in mind-I'll ask her-thx!

That sounds like a neat thing (the woven clips) I have thick hair that I pull back too- and wanted to make something that would work for me.

Maybe something beaded? A french clip or something that is tastefully beaded.

Maybe something like this:

I have sold to a couple of adults at my job and I do something similar to that and also use pearls. The pearl ones were a big hit with the adults.
