The Prettiest Bridal Hair Clips and Barrettes
Barrettes and hair clips are among the chicest options when it comes to bridal hair accessories—not only are they functional and stylish, but they also add a timeless element to your look. After all, can you name another hair accessory that's been around longer than one of these classics? We love a half-up, half-down hairstyle pinned in place with a barrette, as it's a universally flattering (not to mention low-maintenance) hairstyle that looks great with just about any wedding dress. (As an added bonus, it will also keep the hair out of your eyes while dancing!)
If your wedding aesthetic is timeless and traditional, look no further than a pearl-encrusted clip or barrette—this accent is guaranteed to add a little something extra to a bun or twist. If your wedding style is a bit more feminine, consider finishing your hairstyle with a beautiful satin bow. White is a classic option, but a soft color like dusty rose, baby blue, or anything else that complements your wedding bouquet would work, too. A bolder color would make a statement, and there's nothing wrong with that. Paired with a soft, perfectly undone braid, you'll look every inch the whimsical bride. But if you're going with a more glamorous vibe, nothing beats a sparkly barrette.
Lest you still think barrettes and clips aren't versatile. you'll be surprised to know that there are even ponytail barrettes, which will appeal to brides with even the most minimalist of aesthetics. Simply wear your hair in a chic, polished ponytail and clip a rounded barrette around the hair tie to upgrade this otherwise relaxed hairstyle into one that works perfectly for a formal evening.
