What are the different types of barrettes?
Snap barrettes are small, rectangular-shaped barrettes that snap open and closed. Our French handmade snap clips are shaped and polished for a smooth finish, which are specifically designed to last longer than plastic alternatives and are kind to your hair. The beautiful patterns are created within the resin, meaning they will not fade over time. Snap barrettes are easy to use and are suitable for holding small sections of hair.
French barrettes are curved barrettes that have a clasp on one end. They are usually made of metal and are available in different sizes and designs. French barrettes are suitable for holding large and small sections of hair.
Our French barrettes are made from durable and strong cellulose acetate by our French manufacturers who have been making hair clips since 1892 making them specialists in what they do. Each barrette is shaped and polished for the smoothest edges. These smooth edges ensure that these barrettes do not snag and damage your hair unlike plastic alternatives.
Stick barrettes are long, thin barrettes that have a stick on one end. They are available in different sizes and designs. Stick barrettes are suitable for holding small to medium sections of hair. We have our Love Knot Stick Barrette and Handmade stick barrette, a stick barrette holds the hair in place with a stick that winds through the barrette front, under the hair, then back through the barrette on the other side. This gives a very classic finish which is a touch more decorative then a traditional barrette clasp. For more information please read this blog on how to use stick barrettes.
