My 20 month old DD has lovely wurly hair that I do not want to cut bangs into, but her hair in front is always in her eyes/nose/mouth. I have tried a variety of barrettes from regular stores, like walmart, but nothing will stay in her fine hair. Looking for TRULY nonslip barrettes, bows, or headbands that are comfy, cute, and not expensive!
Where to Find Truly Non-Slip Clips & Headbands/ Bows for toddlers?
No help on the nonslip barrettes. The most effective solution for us has been to put the hair in pigtails or ponytails with little elastic bands. Before it was long enough for two pigtails, we just used to put one right on top of her head to keep the bangs out of her eyes. Before that we had a short period of using head wraps (just a big loop of elastic that goes all the way around the head). Those did eventually tend to come off but they lasted longer than clips/barrettes for sure and anyway were very easy to replace.
My daughter has long fine slippery hair. I just put her "bangs" up in a little ponytail on top of her head. I got the smallest size regular hair pony that I could get my fingers in and went with it. It was super adorable and she wore her hair like that till it was long enough to get it all back in ponytails or braids.
