No Slippy Hair Clippy's very own Annie Salyer was featured recently by The Giggle Guide. According to her, she has had several interviews over the years but this one has captured the spirit of No Slippy Hair Clippy as a company, from where it began to where it is going. Here's an excerpt from the insightful write-up:
No Slippy Hair Clippy Has a Firm Grip on Success
By Shannon Allen
As the owner of No Slippy Hair Clippy ®, Annie Salyer is immersed in all things girly — bows, ribbons, flowers, barrettes, and fabric. But this mother of two boys isn’t complaining. “Honestly, I think most girls love hair accessories,” she says. “I grew up with four sisters, and we were always putting clips, ribbons and bows in our hair. I definitely have more of a passion now, especially after serving as the sole Hair Clippy designer the past six years.”
It's a Girl!
The company’s first and signature “no-slip hair clip” was invented out of sheer frustration 10 years ago when a mom with a nearly bald baby girl fashioned a cute hair clip that would stay securely in place. “For generations, baby girls have been mistaken for boys,” Salyer says. “That is until No Slippy Hair Clippy came along! Before we opened in 2001, you couldn’t find a hair accessory created specifically to stay in baby-fine hair. Today, there’s no reason a baby girl need be mistaken for a boy — our beautiful and versatile products definitely solve this problem!”
Fashion that Attracts, Minus the Magnet
No Slippy’s unique hair clips were originally designed with a magnet that enhanced the hold. Today, the product incorporates Swiss velvet, wrapped completely around 1 3/4-inch pinch alligator clips, 2 1/4-inch French barrettes and 1 1/4-inch mini baby clips to provide as snug and secure a grip as a magnet.
All of the hair accessories are handcrafted in the United States, using non-toxic glues and adhesives and CPSIA-certified trims that are sourced from all over the world. “Today’s clip version is sleek, lighter weight and so soft, you hardly know it’s there,” Salyer notes. The bows are made with grosgrain, organza and velvet ribbon, and the novelty clips feature adorable appliqués. An organic cotton head wrap, with big flowers and butterflies, adds a “go green” touch to the product line. “It’s a wonderful band that is super soft and stretchy, and I have not seen anything like it in the marketplace,” Salyer reports.Read the complete article on The Giggle Guide!
