Tegen is made possible by a small, close-knit group of girls with a real love of fashionable accessories for hair. This website was born out of trading from a boutique shop in the heart of Brighton's Lanes for over eight years. We have built an excellent reputation for selling luxury French hair accessories, hats and fascinators and we have become skilled and passionate about finding the perfect French clips for every one of our customers. Following the closure of our Brighton store, we have moved completely online to continue providing beautiful hair accessories for our customers. If you are planning a trip to Brighton, our offices are just around the corner from our old shop so we can take appointments if you would like in-person advice or recommendations. You can also get in touch via phone, email or live chat and one of our team will be here to help you find the perfect accessory.
Our mission is to revive the often overlooked act of dressing hair with the highest standard of hair ornaments. We aim to ensure that every one of our customers comes away with the right hair clip for their hair type, colour and occasion. We also seek to ensure that the clip you buy will give you pleasure for years to come! We strive to provide specialised, personal recommendations - get in touch and tell us a bit about your hair and we will do our best to help.
We love to support smaller businesses, so each accessory that you'll find here has been individually selected by us from a diverse range of small-scale designers and manufacturers. Your purchases not only support small businesses, but they also ensure that the items you buy are unique and high-quality by comparison to mass-market versions. We want you to be able to cherish your accessories and feel proud to wear them.
We are very proud of our vast range of French clips. No matter how thick, fine or ‘unruly’ your hair, we are confident that we have just the thing for you! Our signature line of stunning French Ooh La La! hair accessories are handmade one-by-one, by a family run business in Oyonnax, France. This small team has been hand-making these hair clips since the 1800s, so we know they are the best of the best. This does mean that popular designs sell out quickly, so grab them while you can and bear with us if you have to wait for restocks. Sign up to our back in stock notices to keep up to date.
Feel free to send us a message if you have any questions. We are always happy to help.
