Spring '11 Trend to Try Now: Hair Barrettes As Seen on Eva Mendes and Katherine Heigl

Spring '11 Trend to Try Now: Barrettes Are Baaaaaaaaaack!

'Member when you swore blind that you would NEVER wear a hair slide again because they were so, like, 1999? Well eat them words. Because if Spring is telling us one thing, it's that's hair accessories are big news again. Don't worry, we've got some fresh ideas on how to wear this schoolgirl trend.

Runway inspiration: Rodarte, Prabal Gurung, Cynthia Rowley, Carolina Herrera

Celeb spots: Eva Mendes at the Glamour Reel Moments event on Monday night, Katherine Heigl at the Life As We Know It NYC premiere last month, Emily Blunt at Emmys

TIP #1: This is a trend that you really can't get wrong. It's all about personal preference so relax and just have fun with it.

Keep reading . . .TIP #2: Pick a hair slide that matches your outfit — if you're going formal, jewels work well, as do heavy metal slides; if it's a cooler vibe then use a block of colour like Cynthia Rowley.

TIP #3: Hair barrettes don't just have to be worn with an up 'do. As Eva shows, they're a super-easy way to make a down 'do look different and you can also jazz up your ponytail with a hair slide like the models at Prabal Gurung.

TIP #4: Don't be limited by numbers. Carolina Herrera showed that the-more-the-merrier adds a fresh twist to this hair look.
