Hot take: Hair barrettes have always been cute and will always be cute. I don’t care that there was a time when hair clips and barrettes were sartorially “out”, because to me, they were always in. I know hair accessories have gone through many phases, and I’ve participated in many (including, but not limited to, flower crowns and feather extensions), but I’m honestly so thankful that hair barrettes are deemed cool again, because they’re such a fun and easy way to accessorize.
Hair barrettes are great not only because of their form, but also their function. They’re accessories that actually help you. Hair clips and barrettes keep my freakin’ hair out of my face while also looking adorable and intentionally stylish. I’ve starting wearing huge clips in my hair and forgoing earrings or other jewelry. It’s not great for my beautiful earring collection, but it’s wonderful for my lazy nature. The only decision I have to make is deciding which barrette colors go best with my outfit. What a dream, am I right?
If I haven’t yet convinced you that you need some hair barrettes in your life, I’ve rounded up some of the cutest on offer right now, so you can see for yourself how adorable these babies are. Once you start wearing these hair accessories, your life will change forever. You can thank me later.
