    Very happy

    I've enjoyed wearing two other Oberon barrettes for a few years -- great-looking and excellent quality. Wanting one that was less bold, I recently ordered the Celtic Bar, 80mm. The new Clio Clip on it is touted to have no parts that snag hair. I haven't studied the mechanics, but I haven't had any snagged hair since I started wearing it -- couldn't be happier!

    Celtic bar hair clip

    It is very nice quality, will buy again from you. I just wish this clip had been wrapped separately in the package, instead it was wrapped with another clip we ordered. We had to unwrap it from the other clip we ordered to send as a gift. In doing this we lost the nice tissue wrap and pretty Oberon sticker on the outside. Drats!! It would also be nice if you state you are based in Santa Rosa, I'm trying to promote my home town!

    Celtic clips

    I bought both sizes of the Celtic clips and can heartily recommend them. The actual clip is French made and is sturdy. I have lots of hair (think Loretta Lynn). Both clips are capable of stylishly holding my hair off my face and out of the way!
