There's actually a ton of threads regarding the clip methods, but here's one of the more recent ones. I do it almost every time I've washed my hair, and I do it with either the bent silver clips, or small claw clips. They both work great for volume, you just insert them at the root after you've applied all your products, plopped, etc. I use about 8 of them each time, plus or minus a couple. They really help!
