I moved to a new house and was still in the middle of setting up my place right before the pandemic hit. As luck would have it, all shops and delivery services closed before my house was ready. I had to make the shift to start working from home and this is what my temporary work station looked like:
If you observe, my bed is placed right against the wall in my room (which is standard for many households I believe) and what I recently noticed is tons of marks on the wall.
I soon figured that the claw hairclip I use grazes against the wall every time I sit upright on the bed leaning against the wall. I am a person who hates using elastic bands as hairties because it gives me a headache and leaves a mark on my hair when untied. Thus, there was no way I was going to do away with my hairclip that fit perfectly. The only option left for me was to either install a headboard to prevent this damage to my walls or make changes to the hairclip itself. I thought it wise to make improvements to my existing hairclip instead of investing in a headboard that I did not really need. I made do with coating the sharp edges of the hairclip with Fevicol, a synthetic rubber based adhesive, for the time being. The fevicol coating lasts a while before it withers away and falls off.
A more permanent solution could be coating the edges of the hairclips with a silicon like material that will stay put and ensure the walls remain mark free. However, I am apprehensive that this problem could be unique to me (I do not know if anyone else faces this problem too). Do you thing this would be useful to other women out there?

Maybe something like this could solve the underlying problem

In your scenario, the silicone should be the same color as the clip to make it visually pleasing, but if scratched against the wall, the color should not rub off it. Color rubbing off the silicone is something to keep in mind.

Darko Savic Since this was just a makeshift prototype of sorts I did not put in effort to make it aesthetically pleasing. In fact I had thought of gold, silver or nude coloured rims to add to the beauty of existing hairclips. One could even opt for funky prints and designs to elevate the look.

It would be cool if the entire hair clip was made out of silicone so that you don't feel it poking against your scalp when you lean against something on lay down. Ideally, it would be just hard enough to work as a clip but not hard enough to poke/scratch anything

Darko Savic I like this idea even better! This reminds of all the times when my hairclip has poked my head while sitting in a car. If the material is pliable enough while still maintaining form it would be a game changer. This gives me something to think upon. Thanks :)
