    Wide Arched Barrette

    This is my second Wide Arched Barrette in a different pattern. I love them. I have quite think mid-length hair and they are perfect for putting up. I have one on Onyx and the other in white Tokio. They are both beautiful design and great quality. Not the cheapest but for what they are I’d highly recommend them.

    Wide Arched Barrette

    So pleased with my Marine Fossil barrette. It’s beautifully made and very strong. I can use it to clip all my hair up or just the sides, it holds firm either way. I hesitated as it was more than I would normally spend but it’s definitely worth it as it doesn’t come unclipped after you’ve used it a couple of times like some cheaper versions. Fast delivery and beautifully packaged. All in all I’m very happy and will be coming back for more.

    Arched barette

    Perfect for quite thick greying hair. It looks much more sophisticated than a claw or scrunchie, yet easier to arrange with a strong, reliable clasp. The vanilla colour is ideal for wearing with all kinds of outfits, informal and more elegant. More than I might usually pay but worth it.

    I have thick, curly hair and the barrette copes well, stays in place and looks great. Beautiful hairpiece, easy to use.

    Perfect size

    I love this barrette as it holds all my hair effortlessly and looks so stylish, as though I’ve made a proper effort instead of just slinging it in an updo! The barrette is pretty yet substantial and sturdy, I’m very impressed with the quality and look forward to adding more colours to my collection.

    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
