Default Q: Making clips...

Im using double prong alligator clips to make mine (personal use and to sell) and I was just wondering about lining them...So far I have done fully lined alligator clips and just wondered who out there likes the fully lined or who prefers the partially lined? Or do you make both?

I'm also trying to figure out what kind of no slip grip I should use and if I should put them on all of my clips? I bought velcro to try..the loopy side and the soft side but I have also noticed some prefer that rug stuff and kids sticky foam sheets... I have no one to try them on yet lol so advice is appreciated!!

I do them fully lines with no slip grip. I think they look more complete with it fully lined.

You have posted all of my questions, hahahaha - thanks! Can't wait to see the replies, I have purchased several different clips with various no slip and I actually prefer the velcro because it doesn't pull my daughter's hair much when she pulls it out. I suppose though if you don't want them to be able to pull it out that doesn't help much

Thanks!

I like the look of the fully lined also...just wondered if maybe when they are partially lined if they stay in the hair better haha I have looked at so many peoples sites and alot of them that are made are partially lined rather than fully lined! lol

Haha glad we both will learn something from this lizziebear!!
Oh and I want them to be able to stay in the hair but I am mostly wondering because if I am going to sell them I don't want people unhappy with them! Such as it pulling hair or not working properly!

Each hair is different...if someone were to come back and say they did not work, then I'd give them another pair that is different and see if that works.

If everyones hair was the same, it would be wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have not found a single customer that prefers them fully lined. When I first started, I fully lined and had people ask for me to partially line instead. I use shelf liner usually for no slip, but I'm going to try the foam soon. My DD is perfect to try on because her hair is baby fine. I've tried velcro (no go), silicone (I like it, but I hate making them), and the shelf liner so far.

I have tried both fully lined and partially lined. To me, it's difficult to get the clip in my dd's hair when it's fully lined. Partially it goes right in, no problems.I liked the look of fully lined better, but you get used to partially lined, and it no longer looks odd to me.

And for the no-slip, I'm using shelf liner atm and it works really well, my niece goes to day care every day with a bow of mine in her hair now, and her mom said they don't come off unless my niece tries pulling them out. My dd wears bows and flowers I've made and I've never had a problem. I don't really like the way it looks, but as I said, it works really well, and for $3 for a HUGE roll, it's definitely one of the cheapest ways to get no-slip!

I tried the silicone from the hardware dept in wal-mart, definitely not the right stuff! I do want to try the aquarium one though, and I plan to try the hold it tape and foam. I'll probably try sticky back foam first, it's the cheapest. I might even try GripZies if all else fails, but I would prefer to find something I can make myself.

I have seen a lot of ladies give their customers the option to have a no-slip or not, and some sell all of theirs with the no-slip. I haven't decided which way to go on that yet either.

And I am just a beginner, so things will be bound to evolve as I get more experience. Good luck to you all!

Ya I wondered that...I tried a couple practice fully lined ones in my hair and I found they were harder to get in (my hair is reallyyyy thick!) I worried at first about the double prongs poking baby/toddler...if you know what I mean? Fully lined just seemed safer but most people seem to do the partially lined so it's gotta be okay! Maybe I will try both and just see which people prefer...I have some friends that are having baby girls lol so soon I will be able to have some clip testers!

I havent decided what I'm going to do yet...if I sell them at a farmers market/craft fair kind of thing putting the no slip grip on them at the time would be a pain...so you would almost want tp have them all done with no slip grips incase thats what most people preferred. Not that I am selling them in places like this yet but I just want to have an idea of what I would do in mind incase it comes up!

I have tried both ways and prefer only partially lined clips. The fully lined clips don't stay in as well in my experience. I also line all of my clips with no slip grip. I use the Duck brand carpet tape and it works great!

I used to fully line clips until this forum, LOL! Then, I read everyone was doing partial line, so I tried it and liked it way better. So, I've been doing them partial ever since. They do slide in better for my girls' hair.

I tend to use double prong for heavier, bigger bows, but that's just my preference.

I'm a Gripzies lover for the the non slip grip. They are relatively cheap, and I don't have to worry about cutting and gluing. I offer them for "free" by request, basically. i put them on my own clips for my girls though. They work great.
