I have admired this piece for decades & finally bought
5 stars times 100 stars. This is the Essential French design, quality, beauty, functional barrette for me. Wanted it forever, but budget did not allow such fine indulgences when a young Mother. Unlike previous review, I have medium thick hair and I am able to wear this to pull up just my left (blind eye side). On HOT days, I can part, twist two sections on top, then two sections from back & below...then join them for my own 4 second Twist-Twist. The only problem I have with this perfect piece is to not wear if EVERY day! The white/pearl polish finish shows beautifully on my dark hair. As they say, something like, there is no substitute for class. This is very classy. So glad I took the plunge.
