B + W Tortoise Duo
They don't look the *most* sturdy, because the clip mechanism seems to be plastic (?) and also glued to the back of the plastic, but they're cute as hell. They stay in place really well, and they don't look cheap at all/not too shiny or low quality looking. Like other reviewers said, I will be using additional bobby pins to keep my hair in place when using these, as they're heavy in straightened or relatively fine hair — they stay in place, but sort of pull your hair down. I would buy these again for friends, because the value for the quality is on target.
I ordered a lot of clips and barrettes and they are all really cute and functional. The black and white tortoise duo are a bit heavier than the others and sometimes that bothers me, I need to clip my hair up with them evenly so it doesn't feel like it's pulling, I still wear them and they look very classy. Very nice clips and good price. I plan on buying more for gifts for friends, I get lots of compliments on them.
I ordered these clips as part of my first order from NAT + NOOR and was all-around impressed. The shipping time was quick, the packaging was delightful, and the clips are the cutest. I have very slippery hair and they stay in place VERY well. The design is so sleek and of the highest quality.
I love my clips! I ordered two different pairs and have worn one at least every day. I am impressed by the quality and look forward to ordering more styles. Shipping was fast, especially for a small business.
The best .. actually holds your hair firmly ... barrettes I have ever bought. Their beauty is a bonus !!
