10 Hair Clips & Barrettes Under $25 That Will Top All Your Favorite Jewelry

Necklace, earring, ring, and bracelet trends get covered throughly every season, and for good reason. They're excellent ways to infuse any outfit with an extra special kick. But when it comes to the most underrated accessories of all time, hair clips and barrettes definitely top the list. Sure, in the '90s, claw clips, butterfly clips, and embellished bobby pins had a heyday, but hair adornments have otherwise largely remained under the radar in terms of being major everyday trends. That is, until now.

Thanks to recent runways, hair clips and barrettes are finally getting their time to shine, some quite literally. For fall 2018, designers including Dolce & Gabbana and Ashley Williams sent crystal clips down their catwalks, while the models at Michael Kors and Simone Rocha sported sweet bow iterations in their hair. More recently, for spring 2019, the coifs at Rodarte were studded with real roses, while the butterfly clip got an upgrade at Antonio Marras.

No matter whether your style is more modern than throwback, refined than playful, there'll be a barrette that will make it pop. Layer them on for an unexpected over-the-top effect or simply choose one stellar option to serve as the pièce de résistance. Check out 10 excellent options below.
