Default How do you clip your hair at the roots?

I have been hearing a lot about how clipping your hair at the roots creates more volume. How exactly do you do this? I went to Sally's the other day and got some clips...I think they're duck clips? I don't know...they kinda look like clothes pins. anyways, can anyone tell me how exactly to use these? does anyone have pictures? thanks!

I never got the hang of the metal clips, but my stylist showed me how to use claw clips for this. I use two medium clips, the size that fit comfortably around my thumb, and clip the hair on either side of my part together. I leave them there while I diffuse, aim some hot air on them, and take them out. Helps with the crown volume and I find them easy to use.

(Compared to the top picture in the link above, the clips I use are larger and they are turned 90 degrees so they clip along the part and not across it.)
