What Happened When This Makeup Artist Accused Real Techniques of Stealing Her Work

Beware the Claw, and Other Advice from Louis Licari

Oh my gosh, Louis Licari is hilarious. He's admitted that he has a "Oh, no, you didn't!" file, in which he has a few pictures of people who could use some help from . This might seem mean-spirited coming from someone else, but it's obvious that he's here to help us avoid common coif catastrophes. Take this photo, for instance. I think we've all used these clips while getting ready, but as Louis says, they're not for public consumption:

These plastic jaw clips were made to hold your hair while you are styling your hair, washing your face, or applying make-up. They were never meant to be worn out of your home. This is not a hair accessory.

Well said! There are four other hair don'ts, so read the whole thing. And if you've committed one of these hair "sins," don't beat yourself up. Louis even admits that he's made a few mistakes in the past, proof that none of us are perfect!

Haha, some of those clips are meant for public consumption...definitely not those white ones! I still have some scrunchies (my mom used to make them for me when I was a kid) but I haven't worn once since 1998. Are they still for sale?

i remember that episode on SATC about the scrunchie! there are a lot of fashion "dont's" going on in the world. i definitely wouldn't wear the bright white claw like in the picture, but there are smaller, less unobtrusive ones that are okay. and yeah, i don't wear scrunchies.

Well I wouldn't wear it like that women in the photo, but I do use the smaller claw clips to pull hair off my face or in a French twist-like style. Scrunchies are horrible though. It always makes me think of that episode of Sex & the City with the lady from Georgia and Berger's hurt, hurt, man-pride.

Haha nice article. I stopped using scrunchies & big claw clips (in public) after middle school. No hair sins for me! :)
