Snap hair clips, more commonly referred to as barrettes by Americans, can be a beautiful adornment and accessory for an upsweep hairdo as well as for many other styles. They work best with hair that is not too thick and not too thin because if the hair is too thick, the hair clip will not snap shut, and if the hair is too thin, the clip will not hold it in place.
Snap hair clips come in many different prices and styles just as any kind of jewelry, but many are costume types that can be matched with outfits and other accessories the woman is wearing. Clips covered with black or green velvet, or velveteen fabric, can be a stunning contrast against blonde hair. Likewise, a gold or white fabric covered clip can be a striking contrast against the tresses of a dark-haired brunette.
They are a great idea for gift giving, but unlike jewelry as a necklace, a ring, or a bracelet, it is somewhat less personal, and may be suitable for a newer relationship when the giver does not want to make the gift one that may be interpreted as a symbol of love and/or commitment. Snap on hair clips can be purchased in just about any store and range in prices that everyone can afford.
