This extra large hair clip covers the knot that I like to keep in my hair. It is attractive and efficient, with the best clip back in all the hair ornaments that I own. I also like the pewter configuration which is dressy enough for both every day and dress-up.
It is beautiful. However, it fits too loosely. I bought it as a replacement for a lost one - same model. The lost one was a bit loose and the new one is even looser. Is there a way to adjust them to fit tighter?
Totally. (thank you for being in touch with customer service) Typically when we hear that a barrette is too loose, particularly compared with another model of the same size, this is due to the barrette having flattened out a bit. The barrette should have a gentle curve to it. You can easily fix the issue by gently curving the barrette again. That will close up that space between the tension bar and the closure bar, making it tighter on the hair. As to the nature of the beast: Britannia Metal (pewter) is a relatively soft metal and will be flexible enough to adjust slightly with a bit of pressure. This is desirable for accessory pieces like barrettes, which are used in any number of ways and put under a lot of tension (depending on how much hair is added for a given hair-do). By the way, this is also why we haven’t riveted the barrette mechanism to the decorative Metal piece… so that there is some flexibility in movement. Of course, like anything else, with enough pressure and force, bending it completely will break it. Creating gentle pressure over the entirety of the piece is the best way to bring it back to the gentle cure it is meant to have. I hope this is helpful.
Before I found Oberon Design and its large and sturdy hair clips, I was having to force my long hair into the largest barrettes I could locate at the drug store. The barrettes didn’t work. They weren’t secure, would pull my hair and within a week would snap/break. Out of frustration, I went searching online. I found Oberon Design. The clips are more expensive, yes, but I have purchased more of their hair clips only because I love how sturdy they are, how well they hold my hair and how beautiful they are. I much prefer to buy quality over quantity. As an end note, the packaging is lovely (would make a great gift) and shows just how much pride Oberon takes in their product.
It was wonderful. I bought through Amazon but now I am a fan. The product was beautifully made, supplied in a sweet basic with a card and a bonus charm. I was so pleased when I opened the box. It was as if you really cared about who bought what you had made and wanted it to be a special experience and it was. Thank you❤️
