Return to barrette (thing)

A type of [hair] [clip] used to keep hair in place. Usually has two sides [hinge]d together (or one piece of material bent in half), with one [plain] side intended to go under the hair and one [decorate]d side meant to be [visible] on top of it. Small ones come in sets, one for either side of the [head], or a large number for the ends of many small [ponytail]s; the larger barrettes are usually worn singly at the back of the head.
