BARRETTES: A TRENDY HAIR ACCESSORY
Used in the past as a purely functional item to hold the hair and its popularity having declined since the early 2000s, luxury barrettes have regained all their prestige and have become an important addition to any accessory collection. Part of the new essentials, these hair clips are seen on every runway during fashion weeks, but also in the hair of every influencer, including the fashion instagrammers. Barrettes are the perfect on-trend companion to brighten your hair on every occasion.
Like numerous other hair accessories, barrettes made their come-back only recently. Historically used to tame unruly strands of hair, they were hidden in the hair and remained invisible. Nowadays, it’s quite the opposite, we want to show them off, and to respond to this new wave, they can be found in an array of styles and colors: white, black, pink, gold or silver, embellished with flowers or a bow, large or very small, made from leather, crystals or pearls...There is a barrette to suit everyone and every style.
Barrettes can be worn stacked on the sides if they are small or “tige boule” barrettes (stem ball clips), or to create an oversized effect if they are maxi models. Our collection of barrettes and hair jewelry is a dream come true! It may be hard to choose but remember, if you love it, you can never have enough!
