And I should have known better. I got a barrette, thinking it would make a nice change from a ponytail holder. Since I have very straight, very soft hair, I knew I'd need something that would really grip. This one claims it's slide-proof.
Wrong! I put it in my hair and within 10 seconds, no joke, it slid right out. Back it goes to the store. I guess I'll just get more ponytail holders.
