Hair Barrettes supplier in the UK
The barrette, also known as the French clip, or hair-slide, is traditionally an oval or rectangular bar with a sprung hair clip fastener which holds the hair in place.
They are usually worn on the back of the head, sometimes forming a pony tail. The automatic clip is opened by pinching two levers together which releases the sprung hair slide, then they just simply click shut once positioned in the hair. Whilst the larger sized barrettes are usually worn in the back of the hair, smaller barrettes are frequently worn in pairs, sometimes on both sides of the head. Currently the most popular styles are the diamante barrettes which sell steadily all year round, due to the combination of our superier quality and low trade prices. Basic black and tortoiseshell are a must for any range of basic barrette clips, however the gold and silver slides are also popular, particularly amongst the Asian market. Animal prints are another favourite and sell well during the autumn, winter season.
