Bossy’s hair clips, also known as Alligator Clamps, Hair Claws, or Jaws.
Bossy can’t even tell you how hard she laughed when these plastic clips came on the scene over a decade ago. Not that they haven’t always been around in a utilitarian way, but Bossy is referring to the day they became acceptable to wear outside of the shopping center hair salon.
At first Bossy was all, “Oh my gah look what that girl has stuck to the back of her head and she doesn’t even know it!”
At the time, and the three decades proceeding it, Bossy was using some form of rubber band or scrunchie or discarded t-shirt sleeve to harness her hair on top of her head in some sort of fake bun/ponytail. But Bossy must admit that most of these methods, consistently worn over time, produced broken and split bits of hair.
Bossy’s clips do no such thing, which is saying a lot considering the weight and volume of Bossy’s hay. Are weight and volume the same thing?
