The Flexi Hair Clip comes in seven sizes to accommodate different hair types and styles. Depending on the amount and type of hair, you might use a small for a Ponytail, but a large for a French Twist. Below are resources to help you determine what size(s) of Flexi you need, and also how to do 8 common hair styles to keep things fresh.
What Size Do I Have?
Your Flexi clip has a tiny marking on the tip of the sliding pin of either blank, XS, S, M, L, XL denoting Mini, Extra Small, Small, Medium, Large & Extra Large. Early clips didn't have a size marking, but you can measure the sliding pin's length.
What Size Should I Get?
Review the sizing chart and video below. Try not to over estimate the amount of hair being clipped, and consider the hair style you desire. Finally, watch the videos under the Hair Styles tab to see what else you can do!
Ponytail Circumference
Pin Marking
Pin Length
very small
2 inch
Our smallest clip, recommended for baby fine hair or pulling back just a little bit of hair. If your ponytail is an extra small, you will use the mini for a 'Half-up'.
Extra Small
23/4" / 70mm
2 3/4 inch
The extra small was designed for those with very fine hair who want to do styles like the Ponytail and Tails-up. Also works for most women's Half-ups.
31/8" / 80mm
31/4 inch
Smalls are the most common size for a Ponytail with fine hair. Those who have thick hair and use a medium or large for a Ponytail will use the small for a Half-up.
4" / 101mm
33/4 inch
The medium is best for those with thick hair and want to do a Ponytail or a Tails Up. If your Ponytail is a small, the medium is great for a French Twist or Up & Down.
43/4" / 120mm
41/4 inch
If you've very thick hair (wavy, curly, or straight, but very thick) you can use the large for a Ponytail or Tails Up. If you use a medium for your ponytail, then you can use a large your French Twist. You will want to use the extra large for very long thick hair.
Extra Large
6 / 150mm
51/4 inch
Our extra large was designed for the Up Dos. When you watch the video of the Extra Long hair style you can see how this is used. Those with very thick hair (large ponytail size) can also use the extra large for the Up & Down or French Twist styles. Extremely rare will someone use the extra large for a ponytail. Those who use the mini, extra small, and small sizes will never need an extra large.
73/4"+ / 195mm+
61/4 inch
Our largest Clip for those with lots of thick hair, long hair worn up, dredlocks, and those with a lot of hair worn in Loc's.
the Half Twist
The half twist is done by taking a portion of the hair, twisting up, then folding down, and giving a twist to the top of the fold.

This model is wearing an extra small for the Half Twist. She has very fine hair and would normally wear the extra small for a Ponytail. A mini is worn for a Half Up, a small for the Up & Down and the Drop Bun, and a medium for a French Twist (because of length of hair).

the Ponytail
The most common style is the Ponytail. So simple to gather the hair and clasp the beautiful Flexi Clip around all strands. There is no pulling through a rubber band several times.

The size shown in the picture is a medium, just right for thick hair. This model would require a small for a Half Up and a large for the Up & Down. Because of the length of her hair, we would suggest the extra large for a French Twist.

the Half Up
This style is easily performed by using your thumbs to gather the top portion of your hair. Once you have the desired amount of hair together, simply slide the pin underneath the hair and fold the beaded portion over the top and clasp.

Our model is displaying a medium size Flexi Clip with fancy dangles. She has thick hair and alot of hair is pulled back. When you do a Half Up, you have the option to pull as much (or as little) back as you like. You can even adjust the amount pulled back to give you that perfect fit with your Flexi Clip.

the French Twist
The classic French Twist will give you the look of a professional. Begin with a loose ponytail, then twist the hair up toward the top of the head. Grab the twist in the middle, fold ends down, and turn the hair into the twist. Continue to twist and roll the hair to complete the look. Slide the pin of the Flexi Clip under the hair, close to the scalp. Next, fasten the clip for a brand new you!
the Up & Down
This style begins with a twist going up and then folding in half. Be sure to bring the folded ends down the same side you are twisting in, then give a twist to the top of the fold and tuck the hair in. The Up & Down is completed by sliding the pin of your Flexi Clip underneath all of the hair (along the scalp), folding the beaded portion over the top, and clasped.
the Tails Up
Tails Up is the most famous of styles. Begin with a ponytail and twist the hair up toward the crown of the head. Slide the pin under the twist being sure to capture the hair on both sides and close to the head. Fasten and arrange the 'tail' as needed. Fun, cute, and secure!
the Drop Bun
This elegant look begins with a ponytail. Twist and wrap the ends around as in a bun. Leave the loose ends out toward the bottom of the bun at the nape of the neck. Then fold the top of the bun down over the loose ends. Hold securely as you would a ponytail and fasten with your favorite Flexi Clip.
the Extra Long
The Extra Long is for those with very long hair. Most hair types would require an extra large size Flexi Clip, but many will need the large. Start with a twist and wrap the hair into an oblong shaped bun. Slide the pin close to the head, bend the beaded loops over the twisted bun and fasten. Comfortable, stylish, and secure!
