Barrettes are back on the runways in full-force – but we’re not talking glittery butterfly clips of the ’90s. We’re talking about elegant jeweled clips or minimalist leather pins that add just a touch of sophistication to your every day style. We all love an easy solution for throwing our hair up into a messy pony, slapping a barrette in, and discovering a whole new, chic look.
From glitzy bejeweled pins to ’70s-inspired leather ponytail holders, there’s an accessory for everyone – no need to conjure up a style from your prom – or worse, look like a contestant on “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Opt for a knotted bun, out-of-the-box loops, or hairstyles with just a touch of frizz to off-set the bling. Scroll through this runway inspiration roundup to find the best hairstyle for you – plus, shop our picks above.
