We use wood screws to attach the hair clip (made in France - the best!) to the wood barrette. This is the most important element in making any wood hair barrette - NO GLUE!!! All of our hair barrettes are made from remnants of other projects - scrap woods. I cut each barrette by hand and use 400 grit for the final hand-sanding stage. We have to use a polyurethane finish (three coats) on the hair barrettes to protect them from outdoor moisture. We NEVER use stains. I've been making our hair barrettes for over a decade now & guarantee my work for this lifetime.
A wheat colored wood that is perfect with any hair color!
