I have a small but growing collection of Maximas clips that I use CONSTANTLY. My hair is very slippery and yes, they hold! My circumference is almost 4 and I have shorter hair than you do and I already have to use a large so you may want to go that route instead. I usually do a peacock twist with them, throw the clip in and VOILA an easy, quick updo that stays!
