Whether your wedding hairstyle of choice is a romantic updo or the classic half-up half-down style, a great wedding hair accessory can be the icing on the cake. But before you reach for that jeweled hair comb or flower crown, consider the latest wedding hair accessory trend: bridal barrettes. Yes, the hair bauble from your middle school days is back and it's all grown-up.
