According to the Cambridge English Dictionary:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]…a small, decorative piece of plastic, metal, or wood that a woman or girl wears in her hair, often to stop it falling in front of her face[/perfectpullquote]
Hair accessories are a huge trend that is growing week on week. Does this mean that long hair is also on trend, surely you need a certain length of hair to hold a barrette? My hair is long and fine, very often a large barrette will not stay in place and quickly slides out of my silky soft locks!

A little note to add:
The hair slide I am wearing is pretty. but it broke very easily, and was more expensive than some of my suggestions above! So I won’t recommend this one to you. It did come in handy as a pretty pocket accessory!
