Dark Wonderland Hairclip by Restyle

In the warmer months of the year I begin to experiment a little more with my hair. In winter I am content to straighten it and leave it, but in the hot, humid weather that we get in England at this time of the year I have to do something with it (unless of course I want to resemble a frightened cat). My hair is difficult enough to tame in the colder months, but with the slightest bit of heat it becomes impossible to manage. I usually just tie it back, or I braid it, but neither of these options are particularly appealing (the latter makes me look like Wednesday Addams). I was browsing Restyle's website again a few weeks ago and I came across their hairclips, which I thought might hold the solution to my summer hair problem. In the end I decided on Dark Wonderland, which I ordered from The Gothic Shop.


This hairclip features three silver pewter skulls placed within three blooming roses. It measures approximately 9cm across.

As always with Restyle, the detail is excellent and it's incredibly beautiful. It feels very sturdy. One of the main problems that I have with hair accessories if that my hair is so thick and heavy that clips often feel loose and I have a constant urge to keep checking that they are still in my hair. It's incredibly irritating to have spent all morning trying to get your hair perfect, only to have the clip pop open as soon as you leave the house. Fortunately, I've had no such problems with this one. It is weighty enough to hold my hair in place without being so heavy that it falls out. It feels incredibly comfortable to wear and I often forget that it's there.


I've worn this nearly every day for the past couple of weeks and I'm extremely impressed. Not once has it fallen out, and I've not had to move it or check it throughout the day. I did struggle to get it the centre of my hair at first, but it gets easier with practice. It's a wonderfully beautiful piece, and it's appropriate for both day and night time wear. I'm definitely going to buy a few more of these for variety and I can see me getting a lot of use out of it during the summer. It makes a simple hairstyle look a lot more interesting!

This clip costs £13.50 and can be purchased from The Gothic Shop or the Restyle website.

Disclosure: I bought this clip myself.

  1. I was tempted to buy this from Restyle during my last order but in the end I decided not to because I knew it would just end up sitting on my dresser looking pretty as I very rarely wear things in my hair, other than the odd flower! I am super lazy when it comes to my hair!

    The close up details are beautiful and it looks wonderful in your half up half down style! ♥

    1. I was tempted by it numerous times before I decided to order it! I've been surprised by how often I've been reaching for it in the morning! I'm usually very lazy with my hair too. I always say that I'm going to start making an effort with it but I never do. I think that half up half down style is the most complicated thing I do with it!

    1. The detail is wonderful, I don't think I've seen any other hairclips that quite match up to it!

  3. What a beautiful piece. I have really thick hair so I usually can`t wear these, such a bummer because it`s so nice :)

    1. I have incredibly thick hair (I have to get it thinned out at least every two weeks or it becomes unmanageable) and it works with my hair, which was very surprising! Normally clips pop open with my hair or the weight of my hair just pulls them out, but this one seems to be strong enough to hold it!

    1. Unfortunately I don't have many hair tips! I am so lazy when it comes to my hair! I had my hair really short for awhile last year so this is the first time in ages that it has been long enough to style. I keep meaning to learn different styles and things to do with it but I never get around to it!

    1. It really is! I think I spent a few minutes after it arrived just looking at it before I put it in my hair! I want to get a couple more clips just for variety.

  7. Hellow,
    You know that due to my last issues with restyle.pl I am not quite happy with them right now,
    But either way, their stuff is beautiful and I cant take that away from them, it looks gorgeous on your silky black hair and I love to see it on you.

    Regards.

    1. Thank you! I've never ordered from the main site mainly because if anything ever went wrong it would cost a lot of money to send it back, and after your experience I'm very glad that I've only ever used UK sites instead!
