Pin cycles hair?

I am making a character with long hair who is wearing hair clips. I want to be able to anchor the hair in the area where the clips are and have it not come out when I am combing hair further down. Currently, if I try to change things further down the hair strands, it ends up moving the points where it is bunched up at the hair clip, causing the hair to clip through the clip (so many clips!) I want those vertices to stay anchored the way roots do.

Is this possible?
