2 Latex Bands; for experienced users, i.e. groomers. They are easy to use, but if your dog doesn’t sit still a clip will be easier for you to use.
The French Clip is easy to open and for dogs that have thick hair or already have a band in their hair (i.e. Shih Tzu or Poodle).
No-Slip French Clips are easy to open; an added piece of Velcro prevents the clip from slipping off the straighter hair (i.e. Yorkie or Maltese)
