Does The rise of the Barette Mean The Demise of the Hair Slide?


No of course not! Because they are the same thing, with a different name. In my day we called them hair slides, hair-grips and clips. Today we use the American/French term and we call a hair slide a barette !

The Barette

According to the Cambridge English Dictionary:


…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

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!

    A pocket accessorie! Well never heard of those. 😂😂I bought a hairband, and have to use it yet. And I was also looking for some hair accessories. Can’t find reasonably priced ones though.

      I do think Cos are very reasonably priced and the quality is superb!

    Despite the fact that I have a mass of hair, I don’t actually know where to wear one on my head! I was with a friend looking at them the other week and we tried them on and she was amazed that I couldn’t find anywhere on my head where I could wear one convincingly. But yes, I love the accessories in COS, always so simple and stylish. AND much more affordable than people give them credit for.
