I only made it through the second one before needing to comment (I'm a hair stylist). Please don't tell people to use metal clips (or anything else metal) when using hair color. The metal can cause bad reactions with the color! You'd much rather stain a few plastic clips!

Oh my God!!! I second the PP!! I'm also a hair stylist. Do not advise anyone to use metal clips. The only funky thing that should happen to plastic clips is staining.
