Barrettes have been around for a while. It all started with simple silver metal barrettes, the one that kept hair off our face; however, barrettes are now emerging to be a huge runway-hit. From pearls to diamond studded bobby pins, everyone has been going gaga over chic barrettes and no it doesn’t end there.
The way models and influencers are styling barrettes of late, it is giving us more and more inspiration to try out this all-new barrette stacking trend ourselves. Yes, barrette stacking is having a moment right now and no, we cannot keep calm! While layering is big in the fashion world, it is slowly tilting towards beauty too. And we’re not complaining!
As the name suggests, barrette stacking is all about stacking multiple barrettes together on either side of your hair. The best part is that barrette stacking does not require much time or effort. Infact, it’s also one of the best ways to cover up for bad hair days. Stack a few barrettes together and spritz on some dry shampoo and you’re good to slay!
Here are a few cool ideas to get on board with the barrette stacking trend:
Pearl barrettes can instantly up the elegance quotient of any hairstyle. We suggest you stack 3-4 huge pearl barrettes together and leave the rest of your hair down. Wear it with an easy-breezy outfit either to a brunch or a casual dinner.
Barrettes on braids
Ditch your regular elastic hair ties for a stylish barrette. Style your hair into a braid and secure the braid using two to three barrettes. Perfect for your beach vacation, sporting this hair trend is definitely going to get you hits on the gram!
On days when you have no time to style your hair, opt for barrette stacking! Leave the rest of your hair down and stack a couple of barrettes on one side of your head in line with your temple. Doing so will instantly take your glamour quotient a few notches higher.
You’ll be happy to know that you can now keep hair off your face and make it look stylish at the same time. Twist the front fringes and secure it with multiple barrettes at the back of your head. This is another way of flaunting a simple hairstyle in a chic manner.
Short hair, no care
For all those who think styling short hair is tough, needs to try the barrette stacking trend. Stack a couple of barrettes together on one side of your hair and leave the rest of your hair down. And voila!
