Rated 5 out of 5 by Seven Does well in thick hair
I mainly purchased this barrette to bump my purchase total up into free shipping territory, but I'm actually pretty impressed with it. I have long, thick hair, and I have broken many barrettes, clips, and bobby pins trying to manage it. This barrette is different. The metal clasp is securely attached and it latches easily, even around large quantities of hair. It has never popped open unexpectedly while wearing it and it's comfortable to wear. While this barrette won't hold all of my hair, it holds a bit more than a third of it, which is still quite a feat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pinpan Cute barrette
I love the look of this barrette and it is well made. However, I have thin hair and this barrette, being a little too large and the clip not being tight enough, slides right down. It works if I pull all my hair back instead of just some of it so I will use it that way if/when I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laura Love these barrettes!
In the past, I have always purchased inexpensive barrettes from the drug store, and they would fall apart quickly and would get thrown out. I bought the J Crew barrettes over a year ago and they are still perfect! They are actually much less expensive in the long run. Love!

Rated 3 out of 5 by boulderdiva Tortoise barrette comes in slow
Do you have a thick head of hair and want a barrette to hold it back completely? This beautiful barrette comes in "slow", like a tortoise, in that department. It is too short to do so, but looks great. If you only want to pull your hair away from your face in the back, this is for you. Holds a small amount of hair, but again, looks and feels great.

Great sturdy barrette to blend with brown hair & hold a lot at the same time!
