e0d17ee02e81ba8cf0187367deb72e27 The other day I bought a barrette for the first time in probably fifteen years. I tend to shy away from any sort of hair accessory as I think that they can tend to look a little too ‘done’ for my liking; my mom followed me around for a good half hour while when I was getting ready for my wedding, trying to pin just a little something beaded or sparkly into my hair and I just didn’t like the look of it (sorry, mom!). But these new clean lined, modern looking barrettes used to clip up a messy chignon or hold together a low pony, these I can get behind.

Hair accessories and barrettes started to make a comeback about a year ago on the runways at Chanel and Celine, and since then I’ve started noticing images popping up on my Pinterest page and have started seeing them in the shops. Nordstrom makes a rounded clip that’s just about an exact copy of the Celine one, as does Asos, and J.Crew has a pretty good selection of clips. I think the key to pulling off any sort of hair accessory is to keep the rest of your look quite basic, and to be sure that your hair doesn’t look too perfect, like the girls in these inspiration images. Thoughts? Have you been wearing barrettes at all, or is this not something you can see yourself doing?

Happy Tuesday!

    Love the one in the top photo – would really elevate my messy, dirty ponytail look 🙂

      Agreed! As I was writing the post this morning I was really wishing I had one like that for today.

    That first clip is super cute! I also like the white ones with a gold line! I have not worn clips in a long time either hhaha. But I would totally wear some of these. Thanks for sharing a new trend I haven’t heard much about yet!
