and stones. These generally have a metal backing.

most or all of your hair, choose a plastic hair barrette that’s not only long enough, but wide enough as well.

bend a little, but if you try to put too much hair into them, you won’t be able to close the clasp. If you use
too much hair and manage to close it, it will probably pop open. To be sure you aren’t putting too much hair in
your hair barrette, bring the upper part of the barrette down over the section of hair to see if you can close
it. If it won’t close, choose a larger and wider barrette.
