A romantic red rose accessory for her hair, handcrafted from top quality tooling leather. Unlike real roses, these beautiful barrettes will last a lifetime. Each one is cut from premium vegetable tanned leather, hand sculpted and painted, then sealed with a protective top coat. The rose is a gorgeous scarlet red (a bit darker and richer in tone than these photos suggest) and the leaves are grass green with forest green accents.
The hair slide measures about 3″ high x 6″ wide at the highest and widest points, though it curves up a bit when worn, which makes it appear a bit smaller. The holes for the stick are spaced at about 3.5″ apart, which is a medium spacing that works well for most people. There are a lot of variables – including hair thickness, length, texture, and of course, the style that you want to use it for. If your hair is very thick like mine, it’ll work best for styles like half ups, French twists and partial updos. If your hair is of average thickness, you might be able to use this for a full bun. Those with particularly fine hair may do better with the smaller size.
These barrettes fasten with a high quality wooden stick, and you have several color options to choose from. Please note that the amber color that I currently have in stock has a rounded oval end, like the one shown in the very first photo.
In the language of flowers, red roses symbolize love. Most often, we see this as romantic love or passion, but red roses can also represent admiration, respect, and memorial.
