These Barrettes and Clips Look More Like Jewelry Than Hair Accessories
There's no denying that hair clips and barrettes are experiencing a major comeback. But unlike some of the iconic styles from the '90s (think butterfly and claw clips), today's hair accessories look more like stunning pieces of jewelry than utilitarian tools. These reimagined pieces run the gamut from crystal-embellished clips to dainty pearl designs. The best part? The statement-making accessories are a quick, easy—and often inexpensive—way to dress up a casual outfit and spotlight your personal aesthetic. Ahead, several options that look like miniature pieces of art.
