This wide, curved barrette is sleek, sophisticated and classical. Since 1892, our family-run manufacturer in France has been creating truly beautiful hair clips. But they knew that their reputation wouldn't last long if the clips didn't last long and that's why each clip is lovingly hand-crafted from the durable, biodegradable material: Cellulose Acetate. This Wide Arched Barrette is the definition of longevity, shaped and polished in three detailed steps for a perfect, shiny finish. This barrette is an investment for your hair. Cheaper, plastic high street alternatives are incomparable, they can break within months. 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. Try a Tegen barrette, risk-free. You won't be disappointed.
This barrette is most suited to medium and thick hair types or long fine hair. If you have particularly thick hair, then our Waved Thick Hair Barrette will suit you perfectly!
Use this beautiful barrette to create elegant French pleats, ponytails and up-do styles. Each barrette is packaged carefully and comes in a brushed cotton dust bag to protect and store the product whilst not in use.
Please note: Due to the nature of the unique patterns in the materials used, each clip from our French Handmade collection can vary from the one displayed in the product photo.
Sustainability is important to us, which is why all of our French Handmade hair accessories are made from an eco-resin cellulose acetate material which is biodegradable. Eco-friendly luxury hair accessories will outperform your plastic, non-sustainable hair accessories any day... Find out more in our blog post here.

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 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.
