Our genuine French barrettes are made in France. Most feature strong, secure, smooth base with a tension bar to hold your hair in place. The claps is made of two prongs that latch to the arm, holding your hair between the tension bar and arm. Our France Luxe Brand specializes in handmade, high quality cellulose acetate, which we decorate many of the barrettes with. These luxury French barrettes come in several sizes and shapes and many styles! They are one of the most popular types of hair clip and will last for years.
