    I bought 'em all!

    I like this clip design so much that I bought all the colors available. (Not all at once, but still...)

    My Go-To Barrette

    I own this barrette in fern, teal, orchid and now, marigold. This barrette is the one I gravitate to every time. For me, it’s got the perfect length to width ratio. The curvature of the clip makes it lay comfortably against my head, and it holds my hair securely. The dyed leather provides a nice pop of color against the pewter and my hair. If I can persuade Oberon to add Sky Blue to the available colors, I will surely buy another.

    The Best Barrette!

    I love these quality barrettes. I purchased the Celtic Leather in black and fern colors and the 70mm size is perfect for my thin hair.

    Lovely barrette

    I got the teal leather barrette and it's lovely. Pretty, professional-looking, and I like how slim and shaped to my head it is - it doesn't get in the way, and I can put a hat on over it. My pandemic hair has gotten out of control, and it's nice to have a barrette that looks like it was made for an adult, not a kid.

    Sturdy, well made barrette. Works with thick, curly hair too!

    Very nice barrette. I purchased the black leather and will purchase others. Very sturdy and holds lots of hair without coming apart.

    2nd Favorite Hairclip of My Life :)

    I love my new Oberon hair clip.....It is only topped by the Oberon Owl barrette that I bought about a decade ago. Over the years I've had a lot of 'long haired people' admire it and asked where I got it........I'm always glad to refer people to the Oberon website because the all products are beautiful the quality for everything there is A+ .

    High Quality Barrette

    I just received my green barrette and really love it. I have fine thick hair and this barrette feels just right, very light and secure. I’ve had it on my Amazon wishlist for a couple of years. So glad I bought it! I immediately came to this webpage to see what other colors and styles are available. I plan to get a few more.

    Fantastic product

    First time for purchasing this barrette and I wasn’t disappointed when it arrived. Artful metal work, sturdy clasp and beautiful red leather that compliments the metal perfectly. it was hard to decide on a color for the leather as all were so beautiful. I certainly would buy more for gifts.

    Go to Barrette

    Very well made and high quality barrette. Bold size but not so heavy as to be uncomfortable. Love all the colors, however I do wish they had a true navy or royal blue. The Celtic knot design is subtle and oh so classic. Overall you can't go wrong purchasing this barrette.
