One thing we're really good at here at Stone Bridge is designing hair clips that really work for different hair types. And if you've got fine hair, finding a great clip you can rely on every day without slipping out or pulling on your hair ain't easy.

We know. We speak to hundreds of women every week going through the same thing you're going through. We understand fine hair.

So, it is always helpful to find out what your fellow fine-haired sisters are using and loving so we've done a little trawling through the reviews and shopping baskets of this past season to see which clips have been coming out as the sure-fire winners of the summer.

After several high-level meetings around our shiny corporate table, collectively studying line graphs and bar charts (no, not really), here is your bespoke list of  hair clips which received the most love, compliments and admiration this season.

We are excited to present: The Winners Your Fine Hair Needs.

★ 5 Star Barrette For Fine Hair: Splendide French Bow Barrette 

Glamorous and very, very French this luxuriously layered bow design over a twisted-up style has received a lot of love this summer.

Check out what one fan had to say: Stunning. I hesitated at the price but when it arrived I can honestly say that the quality is so far above anything I've ever seen on the High Street. Wow.

★ 5 Star Claw For Fine Hair: Lisière Narrow Hair Claw

One of the few claws around really designed for very fine hair. Gentle teeth but with the chic extra border to set off these very popular colours. If your hair is super-duper, baby fine then this is the hair clip you've been looking for.

You were quick to notice: Thank you so much for offering a claw that works for baby fine hair. And that looks beautiful as well. Keep up the good work!

Adding Height To Your Fringe

If you feel your hair falls a bit flat around your face, or you'd like your fringe to stand up and away from your eyes a little bit, I have got a cool technique for you to try.

This is a seriously easy styling secret to add height or volume to your hair, and it's especially good if you, like me, prefer to leave your hair to air-dry.

When your hair is still damp, pick the specific area of your hair needing more volume, such as your fringe or the crown. Then pinch  it up with a large styling clamp.

This is something I do every day with my fringe. And here's the picture to prove it.

I only need to keep my clip in for about twenty minutes or so, about the time it takes for me to brew and slurp down my coffee. Anyway, I'm whooshing around the house so much, it is practically the same as using a blow dryer.

If you don't want to add quite so much height, you can use a small steel salon clip, like these:

Just clip the hair so it stands up from your head, more exaggerated than how you'd like it to dry. Don't worry, your hair will relax back once you take the clip out.

The neat thing is you won't need any additional styling product in your hair for this to work. You only need your hair to go from wet or damp to dry in the time you have the clip in your hair.

You can add volume from the root this way to any part of your hair. Me, I've got a boxy shaped head, so the back of my head is flatter than I like.

I took a picture, so you can see:
Flat head at the back!
Add some clips to make my hair pouffier….
Here, you can see in the first picture, that I would have a better profile if I could make the back of my head appear more rounded at the top.

You can create this illusion by styling your hair with hair accessories, or you can try and get your hair to just stand up a bit more by targeting the flat bits and lifting them with more small clips.

I find small hair claws work best for this.

And here's the final result.
Look at all my hair now!
And such a nicely shaped skull. I must have a big brain!
(Shhh! Between us. No one needs to know the truth.)
