"It is so comfortable to wear, and looks great. Looking forward to using it for years to come and definitely recommend it.”
“Another gorgeous purchase from Tegen. As previously, my item arrived quickly and beautifully packaged. The Onyx hairpin is really lovely and stays in my fine hair and makes a subtle statement. I'm not sure there is another website that sells quality hair accessories quite like these!”
"Love it! Purchased because a competitor's no.1 hair pin broke after 5 days on holiday."

“I am new to Tegen and received my first order last week. I particularly love their range of French handmade accessories and ordered the 11cm Chignon Pin. I have long and fine hair, which I wear in a low bun. The chignon pin is the perfect size, and the subtle blue hues of the opal colour way are beautiful. The pin is well made, gentle on my hair (no snagging), looks classy, and adds a subtle pop of colour. LOVE LOVE LOVE.” - Karin

Do hair pins damage your hair?
Have you every removed a hair elastic and a few strands of your hair can be seen tangled into the elastic? We can avoid hair loss and damage as a result of harsh hair elastics by making the swap to hair pins. Our Ooh La La! Hair pins are hand crafted in France with the highest quality cellulose acetate material. This material is flexible and snap-proof. Not only this, they go through three stages of polishing which gives them a superior finish with the smoothest edges that prevents breakage of your hair.
