CLIPPING

There are many ways to clip and there are also many different types of clips on the market you can use.  I prefer to use DevaClips on most hair types due to their heavy duty hold, but some baby fine haired clients may benefit from using the old fashioned smaller type pin curl clips as the Devaclips can sometimes be too heavy for their hair and fall over.  I’ll likely post some more video’s on You Tube in future with an in-depth description of many different ways to clip and the different clips you can use to do it.  There is no wrong way to clip, as long as YOU’RE happy with the results!

Clipping will release the hair of it’s own weight so curls can start up closer to the scalp, it helps the air to flow through the hair for faster drying time, and also gives volume to curly hair which usually lays quite flat.  It’s one of the most valuable styling methods to s’wavy, wavy and curly girls for helping the hair visually look curlier.  Tighter curl patterns don’t always see a ton of benefit from clipping as their curls start close to the root and give them lots of volume naturally, but ANYONE with texture in their hair can clip and see benefit of some sort.  Personally, I don’t feel like my hair is completely styled unless I’ve clipped it.  Here’s a quick experiment in the picture below about clipping (diffusing tips will come later) that will show you the difference between not clipping versus clipping… and why if you’re not currently doing it in your routine, you may want to start…
