When it’s hot and humid outside, there’s no other option: You must pull your hair back. While low ponies and messy buns are easy-breezy, they’re also a bit bleh—not the fashion statement you want to make, trust us. That’s why we’re big proponents of hair accessories. They easily spruce up your look and often require little to no effort. Case in point: Our latest office-wide obsession is the oversize metal barrette. A cinch to use, these jumbo clips are fun and slightly kitchy—in the best way possible. Gold is super sleek, but we’re particularly fond of the green since it’s a nice bright contrast to almost everything in our closets.
There are so many awesome looks you can create with these barrettes, so we thought it would be fun to showcase three of our favorite styles on different staffers.
Graphic designer Ally has shoulder-length, slightly wavy hair. She decided to do a sweet side twist, which would even work with shorter, chin-length hair.
Community manager Rachel has incredibly long and curly hair. She loves wearing her locks half up, and this clip provides serious hold.
Editor and content strategy manager Meredith has medium-length straight hair. The bun is her go-to look in the summer, but secured with a barrette, the style looks a lot more charming.
