A brief history of hairpins and barrettes
The fascinating history of hairpins dates back to ancient times, when in ancient Egypt, ingenious solutions were used to keep hair tidy. Women then pinned their strands with decorative pins . Originally, hairpins were simple, but made of various materials, such as metal, wood and even ivory. They were used to create buns or fasten only sections of hair.
However, with the advent of industrialization and changing fashion trends in the 20th century, hairpins underwent a remarkable transformation. The stylish 1920s brought the appearance of unique hair clips, beautifully complementing the characteristic hairstyles of that era. They were, among other things, decorated with feathers and crystals. As the decades have passed, hair clips and barrettes have evolved to adapt to the ever-changing fashion landscape.
Now think back to the 1990s and early 21st century. Do you remember butterfly and frog clips and hair clips ? We wore them in various colors, often combined with an elastic choker around the neck. Colorful small hair clips won the hearts of the young generation of the time and became fashionable all over the world . Even Britney Spears wore them.
Today, various hair clips are back in fashion, including small and colorful ones. When browsing photos on Instagram and Pinterest, you will definitely notice characteristic flower-shaped hairpins in various shades.
In our article you will find some creative hairstyles that you can get inspired by. We chose styles using both a large hair clip, small barrettes and a characteristic French hair clip.
Clamp for thick hair – how to style it?
If you have thick and curly hair that barely fits into the clamp, try a little trick. First, divide the strands into two sections - upper and lower - and secure them with bobby pins. Then gently connect them and twist them slightly, then fasten them together with a hair clip.
For thick strands, choose accessories with wider teeth. The hair clip should be larger and fuller so that it can capture all the strands. Small and delicate, they won't be able to cope with a storm of curls.
You can also fasten only the upper part of your hair with a clamp, doing it in different ways.
