Default Lining a Clippie

Hello again -

When lining the clippies, what is your preference for covering/not covering the entire bottom "prong"?

I've seen instructions that do it both ways, and I don't know which I should use.

I've been covering them entirely, but then when I tried to slip it in my own hair just to see how it looked, man, it was HARD because you couldn't "scoop" up any hair to help get the clippie in the hair.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

I don't cover the bottom, because I feel it makes it fall out of the hair easier.

I think that it's all on preferance. I don't line the bottoms of mine because, I find that it tends to slide out of the hair more.

Me too...I prefer dun line the bottom.....

I try to do sample on lining the bottom...I feel the clips look so ugly with both top and bottom line with ribbon and the top part with non slip...

I was wondering about this. I've been lining my clips entirely but I think I may start doing them only 3/4 the way.

When I started, I fully lined them. Now I just partially line them. I started doing that when I made woven headbands. That way they would slide into the headband better.

I partially line all my clips. I use clips everyday in my daughter's hair and from experience...I know that the partially lined clips are easier to get into the hair and stay in the hair better. Most people I know that line the whole clip do it mainly for appearance and not functionality.

I had a friend tell me they stay in better when they're only partiallly lined, so that's what I do.

I agree that they seem to stay in better when they're only partially lined.
