Fun, modern hair accessory
I was bought a packet of these Tony&Guy Geometric Barrette's as a gift and unfortunately lost one on the packet (must of dropped out of my bag, I only lost one as I was wearing the other) so I have only had one for most of the time I have had it and I didn't want to buy another packet until the ones I had which look similar to these in another brand were finished.
The shape of these are cute and different. I usually use this pin as a decoration in my hair or to pull back a bit of hair either whilst I am wearing a ponytail or as a partly up, partly down look.
The barrette is made from one piece of metal which is bent into the geometric shape you see on the top half and then bent round to the bottom segment and soldered together at the end so that it does not catch hair between the two pieces which sits next to each other.
The pin is sturdy and holds in place but do note that if you put too much hair in between the barrettes two halves you will have hair fall out of the pin.
When you are ready to remove the barrette, use the end of your finger to part the barrette a little and the pin will glide out, if you just pull on the barrette, you will pull on your hair.

These are made from a lightweight metal. Tin perhaps? They are easy to open and shut, and my hair does'nt get caught in them and snag. My hair is thick though and I can't get a huge amount on the opening, I just take a small section from the sides to put in place.
Pretty and fun to wear.

I bought the TONI&GUY Geometric Barrettes in gold. The hair accessories have an attractive design and they show up well in my dark brown hair. The barrettes are strong and they hold well in my hair. I love to twist a small section of my hair and secure it with the barrettes.
I have fine hair, and lots of it. My hair is also dry and prone to knots. Although I find it easy to insert the barrettes, they tug my hair when I remove them. It is possible that someone with a different type of hair would find it easier to remove the barrettes.
The barrettes are about 7 centimetres long.

Loving The Rose Gold!
I bought these because I'm a fan of rose gold and liked the modern geometric shape that they have plus they appealed to me because I like to wear hair accessories about this size (they are 7cm long). I'm giving them five stars not only for their good looks and great wearable size but also because they hold my hair steadily. These slides do not slide around which is something that I find with cheaper hair slides that I've tried.
My daughter is growing out her fringe and also loves wearing one of these to hold her fringe back neatly and securely.
I'm really glad I bought these!
Slide these into the hair by opening up the open end and pushing it into place.
Ideal for those who want a hair slide that stays in place steadily and also those who love metallic rose gold for a hair accessory.
