Trends may come and go, but style remains eternal. And if the latest hair trend is anything to go by, it is clear that classic barrette hair clip style is back and how.

 Not a breaking new trend, but perhaps wearing them now as a grown 20-something will make up for times you wore them during the nerdy and awkward growing years.

So if you're into trends and love experimenting, try yourself a barrette hair clip this season. But if you need just a bit of inspiration, look no further, we have that for you as well.
