While you don’t always have to run to the salon for a quick fix to a bad hair day, it’s important to be armed with basic essentials for an at-home DIY. So when it’s time to self apply a color treatment, create wavy curls, or try a new ‘do, we turn to FHI’s Heat T-Rex Hair Clips, an affordable and handy tool beloved by beauty industry professionals. The clips not only easily hang onto a heavy coat of hair, but also help section off pieces you may want to leave untouched. Consider yourself your new favorite stylist.
