How to keep in hair clips?

Anyone have any tricks for keeping hair clips in a 15 mo old's hair? My dd's hair is getting in her eyes and she keeps pulling out clips when I put them in. It's not that she doesn't like them, she thinks it's a game (mommy puts it back in and then she pulls it out... a vicious cycle). I really would like to avoid cutting bangs in her hair, so any help would be AWESOME.

Re: How to keep in hair clips?

I did these two things with my daughter:

I bought those little plastic pony holders and did up a section in the front and slid the bow in the base of the pony tail. works great.

Another thing is to hot glue the clip of the bow where it touches the hair. This makes for a non-slip surface and they are harder to pull out. I just set the bows on a cookie sheet and hot glued a couple dots on them.

HTH!

Hmmmm... good ideas. I never even thought about a ponytail holder. She doesn't have much hair, but probably enough for a teeny ponytail. Thanks! Any others?

I don't know. I didn't bother with it. I figured if she would see it wasn't a big deal. Oh, when I wanted her to look nice we'd battle it, but not for everyday.

We did do the ponytail holder thing, though, as most things slip right out of my girls' hair. We would get the clear ones so it wasn't as noticeable.

Two suggestions: make sure it's not pulling any pieces of hair (and thus getting your dd's notice) and try to put it in when she's distracted with something else!

We only use the clear no slip rubber bands (at the dollar store) but no clips here because the clip always end up either in the mouth or the registers.

Re: How to keep in hair clips?

I found some great hair no slip hair clips at a random boutique at one of my son's school functions. (Think fall festival/carnival type thing.) They are just spring clips that have a tiny piece of drawer liner (that puffy no slip stuff) hot glued to the inside. DD's hair sticks to it very well, but she can pull it out if she works hard enough.
As for the game, I figure you have two options:
1) play it with her a LOT until she gets bored with it and leaves the clips alone
2) put the clip in when she's not paying attention and keep her distracted from the game with something else
BTW do you do her hair in front of a mirror? My 10 mo LOVES it and holds very still for her hair business while she watches.

ETA: If all else fails, I guess try brushing it off to the side when it's wet and then do it periodically through the day to help train it out of her face. Soon it will be long enough to stick behind her ears!
