Hair Barrettes - Back in the Spotlight

Have you noticed that hair accessories are back in a major way? If you thought the days of hair barrettes, scrunchies and headbands had been left behind in the 1980s and 90s, think again. ​In 2019, designers have signalled a triumphant return for all types of hair accessories.​ ​From sleek and chic, to glitzy and sparkling.
The resurgence of these classic hair pieces, with a contemporary twist, means that hair accessories look stylish whatever your age. No longer just purely functional, this new generation of hair accessories are fashionable and beautiful. Hair barrettes, the once unassuming hair accessory, have been elevated into the spotlight.

French Retro Charm; Long Hair Barrettes and Barrette Clips

The hair barrette has a French elegance and retro charm, which makes it a timeless hair accessory. The beauty of barrettes is they’re fun and pretty, but also practical. Not being limited by hair texture, length or style. We ​have long hair barrettes​ if you want an elegant low ponytail look. Looking for a boho vibe? ​Contemporary barrette clips​ to pin in the hair are the ones for you.
Barrettes are one of the few catwalk looks that are easily created at home. They are are a great way to transform your tresses from simple to stand-out with minimum effort! Our French barrettes stay in place all day so you can just style and go. You could add mousse or hairspray before inserting the clip for a smoother look, or add texturising cream or spray for extra volume.
Our French barrettes are sophisticated and classical. Individually produced in a high quality hand polished resin, giving the barrette a stunning and unique finish. Some of our best selling are the elegant Arched Barrette (in a range of classic colours, the Oval Barrette in pretty florals and the chic 3D Patterned Barrette.
