    I purchased both Scunci and Vidal Sassoon Octopus Clips, and I was surprised at the differences. Both have their purposes, and I do like both. The Scunci clip is about 40% larger and also has a rubbery spine on each leg which gives it a MUCH better grip. The smaller Sassoon clip would be better for thinner, finer hair or for hairdos in which you only want to clip up part of your hair. My hair is very straight, below my shoulders, and quite thick. The Sassoon clip is too small to just clip my hair up to get it out of the way. It is perfect if I just want to put the front half of my hair up in a bun to get it out of my face. If I wrap all my hair into a bun, the other brand, Scunci, is large enough for me to clip around the bun so my hair is out of my way. In my opinion, if you have thick, curly hair you are probably better off with Scunci. As I already stated, if you have fine, thin hair, the smaller Vidal Sassoon clip is probably a good fit for you. If you fall anywhere in between like me, you could probably find a use for either/both of them.

    I bought two clips because of the good reviews but wasn't pleased. The clip slides out of my hair with most hair-styles, and many times takes a couple of hairs with it. The first one broke before I got to try it, which is certainly a con. Not sure if it's a design flaw or just cheap construction. My hair is thick, wavy, and I can use the remaining clip for short periods to hold back some hair from sides and clip in back. Very inexpensive and might work for some hair types and styles. If you don't mind that it might not work for you or might break easily, it could be worth the couple of dollars to check it out.

      This is the 2nd octopus I've purchased; my dog ate the first one. I have very thick hair and it is able to hold all of it.

        I have very thick hair. When the weather gets warm, I like to get my hair off my neck, this comb does the job and is attractive.

            I'm a big fan of this type of clip. I loved this particular one because it's smaller than my other large octopus clips The smaller size allowed me to pull back and secure the top part of my thick and wavy hair into a cute style. All went well until it suddenly fell apart after a few weeks.

                This is a very good clip. It holds and has a nicer look than the usual clippy things. I prefer the next size up for myself. My hair is very thick and long. The larger clip holds better than this size. I actually bought this size by mistake and had to give them to my granddaughter.

                  I have LOTSA hair. When I want to pull it up, other clips, even IF they do hold the hair, tend to pull on the top scalp hairs and hurt. The Octopus Clip, perhaps because it has so many "legs," doesn't hurt, and that is a big plus in my book! I can easily pull up my past the shoulder length thick hair and clip in the Octopus Clip and voila! the hair is up and nothing hurts!

                      If I had very thick hair this might work, but my hair is silky and fine and this product just slides out when I use it to hold all my hair in a bun.

                      This clip is so comfortable and effective, I re-buy it every time that it breaks (which unfortunately seems to be often--because of a design defect or my own fault, I can't say).
