3 Ways to Wear An Oversize Barrette

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.

Memorial Day Must-Haves: Meredith

This weekend marks the official start of summer, which means that Birchboxers have plans to kick back, rest up, and hopefully bask in some serious sunshine. We asked several of our staffers where they’re headed (stay-cations sound as enticing as traveling) and the must-have product they’re bringing along. Here’s what editor and content strategy manager Meredith had to say. 

I’m off to Bermuda and hoping to soak up a little vitamin D—if the weather cooperates. Regardless of whether it’s sunny and delightful or rainy and muggy, you always need a chic and easy hair accessory when you’re island-ing. That’s why I’m bringing my new jumbo barrette. It makes me look like a stylish traveler even though it doesn’t take any time or effort to snap it into place. 

Here are some other fun hair accessory ideas!
