Question

answer 1
It can if you don't have very thick hair. It's strong but not substantial enough to handle more than moderately-thick hair.

Yes it can. I like to flip my pony tails back up and then clamp them. It works very well but be careful because the teeth break easily.

That's one of the thngs I like best about it. It's relatively flat, so I'm able to make a really nice ponytail.

Depends on how much hair you put into the clip. The one side of the clip is open, so some hair may slip out. I wouldn't think this would work for a typical pony tail. You might be able to put two together. Play with it in the store if you can.

I bought this to clip all of my hair back and could only do about half maybe less of my hair. It it ok if you only want a half pony tail, or have extrememly thin hair

My hair isn't really thick, but I had to figure out to twist in the opposite direction of how I was placing the clip to make my hairs stay. I also use a bobby pin to keep the shorter strands up. If you have super thick hair, I would not recommend this.

I think you could find something better for thick hair-this may be too tight a hold.

Question
Does this work for UpDo's?
I have thick hair and my go to style for busy days is to flip it up in a clip and then crimp the "waterfall" just enough to give it some style. Can I do this with this flat clip w/ teeth on only one side?

I have super thick hair so I pull back the top first and then pull the back up and get it in the clip. It holds very well if you do it in two parts.

Yes, it works much in the way a barrett works....you slide one side in, and clip.

answer 4
it really DOES depend on how thick [and to a lesser extent, how long] your hair is. it doesn't *quite* work for the "waterfall" look on my hair, at least not all of it [by which i mean "twist hair, pull it straight up, pin to crown of head, and the rest of hair falls back over clip - i presume this is what you mean?] it does work if you braid instead of twist, but i don't like that.
another option, and the one i use most, is to secure a bun - twist hair, wrap as a bun, but take the end, straight up [keep twisted] and make a loop, clip it against crown [and tuck the ends around bun] it holds FOREVER!

Yes! Even tho it lies "flat" it still "works" like a traditional hair clip! Good luck!

I also have long and thick hair. I braid it, secure it with a strong pony tail elastic and add the Sephora Super Clamp. Then I sweep it up and across and secure it with combs. Works for me!

It works for me. My hair is at least average in thickness and collar bone length. I twist it up and put the clip in. I usually do not have to reset all day. This is during my work day. I have not tried it doing anything athletic.

You use this clip as a clip and not a clamp. Grab a bunch of hair and open the by pressing the end. Slide it under the hair you want to clip and just let go.

Whatever you would normally do with your hair...just add a twist and then the clip can be put in at any angle.

Pull the front and sides of your hair back and clip it. Then twirl the back of your hair up and in it too. Took me some time to figure it out but it holds all my hair and its very thick.

I agree....I think the clip isn't wide enough to grasp all of the hair! I am also very dissatisfied with the clip.

The best way I found was to lightly tease and spray hairspray the root area at the crown. Then smooth it out lightly, take the area you want to clip and slightly twist it, then put the hair clamp in place. It hink it works best with thick hair, which I dont have.

it could only clamp half of your hair. it's not gonna work in an updo hair clamping.

unlike a tradition clip, it won't automatically grab your hair for you; you will have to gather it yourself.
i find that it works best if i twist the hair i want it to hold, and slid the clip just above where the twist is, at which point it will HOLD. as long as there is ENOUGH hair, anyway.
or, what i normally do, is use it for a bun. twist all my hair, wrap in bun [3 or 4 times around, on my hair] then the end i twist up above the bun, loop it around, and clamp it right above the bun, through the hair lying flat against my scalp. it works beautifully this way.
alternatively, you can twist and flip up, and clip it so that your hair falls back down over it.
hope this helps!

When I use my super clamp I pull my hair into a pony and twist it and pull the twisted hair up against the back of my head. The super clamp works very well for me. If you put your hair into an elastic first and then twist it up, the super clamp holds even better. If you don't twist you get the "holds only one side" effect. TWIST TWIST TWIST!!
