What are those hair clips called?

Firstly, we need to get a little bit of vocabulary out of the way: you’ll see me using the words “hair clips” and “barrettes” interchangeably. “Barette” is simply the French word for hair clasp.

It could mean either a simple clip or a bar with a stick used together to hold your hair in place. Or to simply make your hairstyle look fancier.

Can adults wear barrettes?

For many of us, thinking of hair clips means thinking of childhood and comic-figure hair clips in funky colors. But, since the 90’s have come back into fashion, all kinds of hair clips for adults have been made available.

You’ll see examples below, as I’ve made it a point to collect Christmas hair clips for adults here.

Okay, enough theory, let’s get started!

Unusual Christmas hair clips: branches*

You know what the good thing is about being an adult? You can get away with bold fashion choices!

These hair clips could be one of those. They mimic tree branches. Does that scream Christmas? Not necessarily. But they will definitely upgrade any Christmas hairstyle .

Keep in mind that they’re a little unwieldy to use, as the branches will not bend to adapt to the shape of your head.

Festive hair claws*

Okay, okay, hair claws are not clips, strictly speaking. But, I just had to show you these when I found them:

Speaking of something being too much: with these golden hair clips, you’ll be going for the exact opposite. If you prefer minimal looks of understated elegance, get these sleek, golden hair clips and combine them with a chic Christmas hairstyle!

Geometrical golden barrettes*

When it comes to versatility, these golden barrettes will offer great possibilities as well!

To me, gold stands for festive and therefore also for Christmas. But you could use these just as well for any party throughout the year.

A thing to keep in mind if you consider ordering these: they might be a little heavy for fine hair. However, if you have a little more hair to hold, these clips will be perfect for you!
