Default A twist on the no slip question!

I've been reading lots of threads about making clips no slip and I haven't seen anything mentioned about aligator clips with teeth.

This may be obvious to everyone else, but as I've only just started out, wouldn't the teeth help make them no slip??

But I was also wondering how you line a clip with teeth and if you do, do you cover the teeth?

Sorry if these are totally dumb questions, but hey I've gotta ask and I haven't actually seen an aligator clip with teeth in real life yet!!

IMHO, it's a matter of preference. Most prefer the regular alli. clip.

If you're using alli. clip with teeth, you line 'em up just like how you'd line a regular alli. clip.

I'm not all that. I just like the last part.

I don't like to use the teeth. It grabs on to the hair to much- IMO.
