The Bead Barrette looks like a stack of 7 pony beads but is actually one piece that opens and snaps shut in seconds. The inside of the Bead Barrette has teeth positioned to attach to braided, twisted, or loose hair, no rubber bands required. It works on all hair textures whether you have natural, relaxed, curly, or straight hair. You can wear them at the middle or ends of the hairstyle. Stack them for a more dramatic look, or even mix and match the colors. These are so fun and versatile!!
