About the Shield Barrettes:
Mane Message founder, Olivia Hayward, is always thinking about new ways to pull back her curly hair. She found herself craving a bold hair accessory that could be worn casually while working from home or out on the town. Inspired by geometric shapes, a few trips to the art museum and the Mane Message motto of "transforming everyday objects into things of meaning and beauty" these brass barrettes were born.
Handmade in the USA. The Shield shapes are hand cut and filed from sheet metal. The barrettes are attached carefully using custom rivets.

How to Care for the Shield Barrettes:
The Shield Barrettes are created out of brass, which will naturally patina over time. We believe this creates a beautiful effect that shows off how you've worn the piece and blends wonderfully with your hair. See image 3 for an example of how the barrettes will look after wear/exposure to air.
Not a fan of the patina? Simply store in a sealed bag when not wearing. You can also polish the brass with DIY cleaning methods to bring the brass back to its gold and shiny starting point.
