This classic, sophisticated barrette is a versatile accessory that can create simple yet elegant hairstyles which stay in place all day. As part of our French Handmade collection, this barrette is lovingly handcrafted in France from exceptionally strong and biodegradable cellulose acetate which is hand polished for a perfectly smooth finish. This barrette is finished with a strong steel clasp that firmly but comfortably holds the hair all day long. A Tegen barrette creates an elegant finish, reliably, every time. We stand by our quality and have complete trust in every accessory made, our Tegen promise guarantees to last one year but are expected to last many years to come.
Use this clip to create half-up styles in fine to medium hair, or for holding small sections of medium to thick hair. Each barrette is packaged carefully and comes in a brushed cotton dust bag to protect and store the product whilst not in use.

Our hair accessories are the best quality money can buy. We know that when you invest in an item you rely on daily to keep your hair in place, it needs to be secure and strong. The last thing anyone needs in a busy daily routine is to refix their hair. We have been working closely with our small family team in France for over 10 years to perfect our accessories, fitting them with the best quality clasps and ensuring the smoothest of edges to prevent damage to your hair. A good hair accessory protects your hair from damage and supports it for as long as required, and this is of the upmost importance to us here at Tegen Accessories.
We deliver the traditional signature French approach where quality comes first. Our Ooh La! La! Collection is hand crafted from biodegradable sheets of cellulose acetate and hand polished to ensure a luxurious shine. Cellulose acetate is made from plant fibres, primarily wood pulp. Our built to last accessories illustrate our slow fashion ethos. We encourage our customers to invest in our sustainable handmade accessoriesthat come with a 1 year guarantee compared to cheaper alternatives as they are simply better for the planet and your hair. Any offcuts from the production of our Ooh La La! Handmade Accessories are ground down and turned into beads, that are then reused to create our injection moulded French Essentials Collection, reducing waste.
France is historically the birthplace of luxury. Some of the worlds biggest luxury fashion houses were born in France and continue to guide the fashion industry with craftsmenship that captures the world. France also has a history of making the best hair clips in the world going back to 1630 when the King of France named the town where our clips are made the exclusive supplier of hair clips to France. France is therefore known for making the best hair accessories in the world. This is why we chose to have our French Handmade Hair Accessories brought to life in France, bringing a touch of something special, valueable and unique into the lives of our customers.
We are on hand from 9am-5pm Monday - Friday to answer any queries you may have before you make your purchase. We can direct you to an accessory that is perfect for your hair type, or help you exchange one accessory for another if something you have tried is not for you. We are passionate about what we do and the accessories we sell, providing weekly hair tutorials in our mailers, on our product pages and on request. It is worth signing up to our Newsletter to be the first to know about these releases and to receive hair inspiration from our specialists.
Our mission is to create luxurious hair solutions for all hair types. We create accessories that stand the test of time, both with their quality and style.
