I partially line, too, leaving the bottom uncovered. I find it allows the clips to slide into the hair or onto a headband or hat easier.

Wow, I think I'm the only one that fully lines.

When I partially lined, my daughter would scratch at her head the whole time, and to me it just didn't look finished, now that I fully line, she wears them all day with no problem, and I found all my clients prefer them fully lined anyway.

Plus they seem to stay in her hair better when they're fully lined.

I used to fully line but they were really hard to put in without getting stuck in my dd's hair and same with taking them out. Now that I partially line even she can put them in and no complaining that it hurts!

You aren't the only one. I fully line. I think it looks much nicer, and I think they hold in the headbands and things better!! JMO!! - My dd doesnt' have enough hair to use them without headbands so I may change my mind later.

I partially line only beacuse my daughter has very curly hair, so the fully lined ones dont go in and out easily. I have just started selling and sent partially lined and fully lines ones to my sister and she likes both of them so I guess I will make both of them.
