My mother-in-law gave me a very pretty blue crystal hair barrette for my birthday. Blue happens to be my favorite color, so this barrette is perfect for me.
It is a very simple oval design made up of sparkling blue crystals. The hair clasp is very secure. It opens easily and snaps shut tightly to keep my hair in place. My mother-in-law informed me that she picked this clip up at Walmart.
Since my hair is long, I sometimes need to pin it back when I am doing things around the house just to keep it out of my face. This hair barrette holds my hair securely, and so far I have not had any problems with slippage. That's a great thing for me, because my hair is fine and thin and not always so easy to pin back.
I don't know who made this clip, it just says "Made in China" on the clasp. I think the barrette is very stylish and feminine, and can be worn with casual or dressy clothes. And it really does make a great gift for any lady with long hair who would like to use something besides bobby pins to hold her hair.
