As I combed the many, many street style photos from outside the Fall 2019 shows a few weeks ago to find memorable beauty looks to showcase in our street style galleries, one thing became abundantly clear: I do not own nearly enough hair accessories. Barrettes, headbands, scrunchies and scarves were absolutely everywhere during Fashion Month, and the array of different iterations was both overwhelming and inspiring. So when I came across this simple set of two tortoise-shell-print acetate barrettes in a fun wavy shape while browsing on Lou & Grey's website, I honestly didn't think twice before I hit the "add to cart" button.
Made by an Atlanta-based designer who also sells her accessories on Etsy, they're slim enough that they don't overwhelm my fine hair (and actually stay in place!) and look cute layered together or one at a time. They're much less flashy than most of the pieces I spotted (and lusted after) on showgoers, but I've found them to be a fun, super-accessible means for getting in on the trend.
Machete Wavy Hair Clip Set, $18, available here.
