Default Super-cute new barrettes

Check these out, gals!





We just got them in Curlmart. They're from France Luxe, so they're really well made.

Oooh, those are cute. And, BIG. And no print paint to separate too.

They are really pretty! But, have you tried them yet? I always seem to get hair caught in the metal parts and it pulls my hair out. I have to buy the barettes that have the metal parts that are covered with plastic.

I haven't tried them, but it's an interesting point you make about the metal parts.

We'll try to source some that are plastic-covered.

Those are very cute! I wonder if you could post the pictures with two things -- something to give a frame of reference for their size, and perhaps show them from a side view so we have an idea of how much hair they will actually hold. Although, I suspect, given that it's at CurlMart, they probably hold a generous amount.

Thanks!

They do hold a lot more hair than the average barrette. I'll see if I can get a photo of the side.

Their dimensions are 3.75" x 1.25"

This is a better view of a different-design France Luxe volume barrette, where you can see how much space there is for hair.

They are too cute. I don't think my big ole puff will fit them.

I ordered one, and I'm excited to get it. The headbands were a bit of a bummer since the paint keeps splitting, but the barrettes won't have that issue.

I got the pinkish flowery one as it looks fun! I'll have to post a pic when I get it.

Those barrettes are pretty cool. I can fit all of my hair into one of them, so they can accommodate a good amount of hair. They are cute too.

I'll have to do a pic at some point...
