  • This barrette is most suited to medium and thick hair types or long fine hair. 
  • Use it to create elegant French pleats, ponytails and up-do styles.

    Really impressed!

    I've not used a hair barrette in a long time so wasn't sure what to expect. The wide arched barrette is actually big enough to get all of my hair into for a low ponytail (and I have a lot of hair!) which I wasn't expecting! It also works perfectly for a half up style for me - really comfortable to wear and stays in all day. Thank you Tegen!

    These products are excellent. I have thick, long hair which I wear up. They are the only slides I have ever found thst hold all my hair in place. They are so strong and beautifully made. No twang that's another broken slide !!

    Superb and Chic Barrette. Worth the Investment.

    I’m so glad that I have found my favourite French hair clips, again, at Tegen. I have very strong, thick and wavy hair that more or less destroys most hair elastics and clips within a week. The only solution when dressing my hair up is to invest in a large barrette that will keep my hair in place without damaging it. Yes, the initial financial outlay on these clips is a lot higher than your everyday high street equivalent. But they are extremely robust and don’t tarnish over time. Well worth the investment.

    Wide Arched Barrette

    I have long thick hair and normal clips have a tendency to spring out suddenly. This product is great, it holds my hair in place all day. I would definitely recommend it.

    Fabulous for thick hair

    Having been let down time and time again with hair clips that just aren't up to the job of holding up my thick long hair, I have finally found a hair clip that is perfect. I will definitely be back for more especially as there are so many gorgeous colours to choose from

    Vibrant barrette

    Quality as usual . Have many of these French barrettes which hold my long fine hair in my favourite bun twist. Vibrant colour brings a summery feel to my collection.

    Perfect for thick hair

    Received good, prompt online advice. Purchases arrived promptly and beautifully packaged. This is perfect for my thick long bob. It seems expensive but it is very strong and well made,I’m sure it will last for years.

    Amazing hairslide!

    I was thrilled with my wide-arched barrette when I opened the box. It exceeded my expectations. It's beautiful and clearly very well- made. It's also very strong and large enough to hold up my thick hair well. I chose the summer vineyard design, though it was a difficult choice as all the designs are fab and quite unique - much the best hair accessory I've ever had. The other Tegen hair clips I've bought are all exceptional too.

    Very well made with a good strong clasp and very comfortable to wear! Caught the light beautifully - such vibrant colours! Very quick delivery too and adore the posh little pouches they come in! Will be ordering more - a classy product which is rather unique and sophisticated - well done TEGEN!!! ♥️

    Love this

    The bar is fabulous - beautifully made, pretty colours, and works well with my long, but fine hair. Great delivery and the little bags the bar comes in is a lovely touch
