This clip is the most unique type of clip I've worked with!!! It's kinda like a French pin, kinda like a barrette, kinda closes like a banana clip lol. It is perfect for clipping a low pony, or a French twist updo or half up. I love how freaking cute it is and the colors are amazing. The back slides into a groove which is how it fastens. It comes in 4 colors - Black, Matte Clay, Clear Brown, and Clear Champagne.
