One night at El Gran Teatre del Liceu, I spent the better part of Act 1 studying the French twist on the woman in front of me. She held it all in place with a vintage barrette much like this one. I used the back of my programme to make a sketch.
Theatre Barrette (No. 5908). Gold-plated brass with crystal and cast-glass jeweled embellishments. Pinch hinge closure. 2 ¾” x 1 ¾”. For long or short hair. Pull your hair back on one side and secure… or attempt something even more dramatic. Either way, I’m intrigued. Made in the USA.
