What does a banana clip do?
A banana clip is a simple hair clip that can be used to pull back your hair and secure it at the back of your head. They are a healthier and eco-friendly alternative to using elastics to create ponytail styles. They have been incredibly popular over the past few years and it's not hard to see why.
We are here to answer all of your questions regarding banana clips, from how to wear them to the best banana clips for thick hair, we've answered them all.
Why are they called banana clips?
Banana clips are named after banana leafs, this is because banana leafs are elongated and slightly rounded!
How to use banana clips
1. Brush all of your hair to the back of the head in a loose ponytail.
2. Place the opened clip underneath the ponytail with the spring at the bottom.
3. Close the teeth around the base of the ponytail.
4. Fasten the catch at the top by twisting it together.
5. Adjust the hair until you are happy with the look.
6. Finished! To create a half-up style, use the same method but only take the top layers of hair and leave the bottom layers down.

Do banana clips work on thick hair?
Absolutely! In longer or thick hair, go for a longer banana clip that can hold more hair. Clips with more space between the teeth will work best for thick or curly hair types as it allows more hair to fit in the clip at once. In our French Handmade collection we have the Thick Hair Banana Clip which is handcrafted in France out of strong and durable cellulose acetate which will grip your hair firmly yet comfortably all day.
