A French hair pin is a two-pronged, U-shaped hair pin that is used to secure one's hair for an updo or half-updo.
Wearing a headband may be divisive: it might make you feel like a boss, or it can bring back memories of how they continuously slipped off your head on the playground.
A larger barrette can work for a half-up, half-down look by securing the top half of your hair at the back of your head.
A hair claw is an excellent alternative to a hair elastic. Hair claws are clips with numerous prongs on each side that are used to secure your hair.

By fastening your high ponytail with an oversized scrunchie, you can channel the '80s look.
Bobby pins are metal clips with two flexible prongs and a ridged side for holding hair in place. They are not to be confused with hair pins (which are U-shaped).
Choose elastics with a bow attached or bows with fasteners that hook into your existing ponytail elastic for fuss-free styling on any hair texture.
