Paddle clips?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, gang. I came across an intriguing picture in a post from The Beauty Department.

Those padded clips immediately caught my eye. I've always wanted to clip my hair at the roots, but the usual metal clips look so heavy-duty. These seem gentler on the hair.

BUT, I cannot find out where to get them! The post itself doesn't say, and the poster doesn't answer the commenters' pleas for info either there or on Pinterest. Has anyone seen this kind of clip before?

Did a quick search for padded clips, and couldn't find the exact clips in your pic. However, I did find these other similar things. Maybe something will help.

Covers for snap clips, with instructions on how to attach to your own clips. If you're crafty, you could probably use a similar procedure with duckbill clips.

Pages selling duckbill clips suggest using grosgrain ribbon the same width as your clip for an inside lining. Apply with hot glue.

Also, here is an Etsy listing for a duckbill clip lined with ribbon. Looks like it was simply hot glued around the handle bit and over and around the top part of the clip that would show when wearing:
