Have you hopped on the hair barrettes trend yet?
These hair barrettes are all over Instagram and Pinterest. I’ll be honest, it’s taken me a bit to try these but I’m so glad I did. It’s been a really long time since I’ve worn hair clips like back when I had butterfly hair barrettes in my braids in first grade. However, I’ve seen these all over the Internet and I wanted to put together some hair barrettes hairstyles for you. Here’s 10 easy hairstyles that you can do quickly and look a little more refined.
Before I show the hairstyles, I wanted to share these hair barrettes. I have a couple of them from Amazon. The pack came for $7 and they’re super high quality. There’s other ones very similar to these I’ve seen before and I really want to get the resin ones now because I think those are just so pretty. I wanted to test these out first because I knew they were a lot more neutral. I love the addition of the pearls on them and they don’t feel like they are going to fall off.
For the first hairstyle, I wanted to go really easy. Take a piece of hair about 1 inch thick towards the front of your hair, twist it back and secure it with one of the hair barrettes. I did the exact same thing again and pinned the next one of the hair barrettes right below the other so I could get that stacked look. This look is super easy to do and it looks so cute. You could do it on both sides but I chose to do the side that has the most hair on one side.
The second hairstyle is even easier than the first one. All I did was take a chunk of hair and clip it on the side of my head with one of the hair barrettes. I didn’t do any twisting instead I just pulled it to the side. A trick I have for you is to flip the hair barrettes so the hinge is in the back so it lays better on the head.
The third hairstyle is so easy as well. All you have to do is take a piece in the front and bring it to the back of the head. Do the same thing on the other side, twist the pieces together and then secure it with one of the hair barrettes. It’s a great way to get your hair out of your face if you’re wanting to keep your hair down, but the pieces around your face are getting oily.
The fourth hairstyle is a really good one that I use to go to the gym. It’s a way to step up your hairstyle because I want to get all the hair out of my face and the hair barrettes help me do that. First, I put all my hair into a ponytail and then I add the hair barrettes where I need them. You can put them on both sides to take away baby hairs or you can put them back as well. I think this is a really good way to kind of dress up your hairstyle. You can wear it to the gym, with a dress, literally anything!
I like this one a lot because it’s another one of those really good hairstyles that you’ve used on third day hair or when you’re going to the gym. I threw my hair into a top knot. I wrapped my bun around my finger and I was able to put that hair tie around it so I can get that big bun that I like. Then, I took out all the baby hairs in the back and secured it with one of the hair barrettes. This is both cute and functional because the hairs won’t fall down at all during the day.
I’m really excited about this one because this is another good way you can dress up a bun. Normally, I think of buns as something I throw together to work out or clean, but it can really be elevated. Put your hair in a top knot just like the last hairstyle I put together. Then, add hair clips wherever you’d like. I like to stack mine but you can also add them in a line like a headband or by hiding the elastic around the bun.
This one gives me all of the rockstar vibes with all the hair on one side of my head. I took my middle part and flipped some of the hair over to create a really deep side part. Then, I pulled all the hair behind my ear on the smaller side and I put one of the hair barrettes in it. I love the way that this looks. It’s kind of edgy and fun when all you really did is put your hair on a different side. It’s a really great way to hide greasy roots because I haven’t washed my hair in a bit so this is a hairstyle that I definitely look forward to trying out more.
I’m so excited we got this far! This works whether you want to do a side ponytail, a fishtail, a braid, etc. I put my hair into a side ponytail and then secured the opposite side with hair barrettes. I have a lot of unruly baby hairs because it’s way too short and I can’t pull them back unless I have a gallon of hairspray. This dresses it up a little it and makes it look really cute.
This is the ninth hairstyle! I love this look because the hair barrettes doesn’t crease your hair like a normal hair tie and you can use it instead of an elastic to tie off any kind of braid. I usually do a fishtail or a normal three strand braid because dutch braids and french braids are kind of hard. Honestly, I’m not the best at them but I really like this look because it is an easy way to dress up a braid and it’s such an easy effortless look.
We made it to the end! This is an ode to the butterfly clip era. I used to have two butterfly clips on each side of my head but this is elevated a little bit more. I took a 1-inch chunk of hair and I twisted it back on each side of my head pinning them with little sparkly bobby pins. I love the look of this and you can do this with hair barrettes or even regular bobby pins. It’s really easy and effortless and a great way to get the hair out of your face.
Those are the 10 ways I found to style hair barrettes but I’m sure there’s dozens of others to do as well. Let me know what your favorites are and what you are wanting to try out.
