The difference between a barrette and a pinch clip is that a barrette is smaller and when you put it in you don't have to worry about it
A barrett clips and pinch clip squeezes hair together. Both work fine holding hair back or up.
A barette is clasped at both ends. It must be unclasped, hair gathered, reclasped.
A pinch clip is open ended, and works on a spring. It must be held open, hair gathered, released.
A Pinch Clip Is Like For Holding In Curlers. Has A Spring. A Barette Is Another One Of A Hair Thing But This One Is Hinged And Must Be Undone To Let Hair Out
A barette is smaller nd not as helpful
