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 six years. We have built an excellent reputation for selling luxury French hair accessories, hats and fascinators. We have become skilled and passionate about finding the perfect French clips for every one of our customers. If you're in Brighton, say hello to us in our little shop, or get in touch via the contact form at the bottom of this page or the 'Message Us' button for a personalised recommendation.
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 come 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 clip, claw and hat that you'll find here has been individually selected by us from a diverse range of small-scale designers and manufactures. 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 is created 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 favourite 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 notifications to keep updated to when your favourite accessories are in stock.
Sometimes our customers are unsure of how to use a stick barrette or are dubious that they will work in their hair. Here we show a few few simple stick barrette hairstyles and some tips to keep it in place.
Feel free to send us a message if you have any questions. We are always happy to help.
