The return of our favourite 90’s trend is back, and it’s here to stay.
Hair clips have been popping up left, right and now they’re very much… centre. After making a brief return in 2018, they’ve well and truly made their mark on the fashion and accessories scene this year.
Although they can be a little difficult to wear, we’re a sucker for the versatile and cutesy styles that take us way back when. From pretty pearl snap clips to statement banana clips and the revamped classic bobby pins, here are the must-have styles you need to try.
The Banana Clip
Back in the day, we’re saw our gran or our teacher rocking these, and they wouldn’t be quite so pretty. Fast forward to 2019, and there’s something very Parisian chic about the banana clip. This old-school style has had a modern makeover and we’re all over it. From embellished styles adorned with diamantes and floral appliques, wear your hair in a loose bun with wavy pieces tossed loosely to frame your face. Effortless yet everything.
The Snap Clip
By far the most versatile accessory for all kinds of hair styles. For a Kim Kardashian style vibe, part your hair in the middle and add some cute pearl embellished snap clips on either side. Our favourite look that though? Old school glamour with a vintage edge. To nail this killer look, part your hair on the side, clip your hair back and curl your hair or put it in rollers for extra body. You’ll be red carpet (or Saturday night) worthy in a hot minute.
The Bobby Pin
Who knew that so much fun could be had with a bunch of bobby pins? Don’t believe us? We’ll help you create a look of hairpin dreams with the humble bobby pin – just look at Gigi Hadid! All you need is some serum, a comb and your bobby pins for a look that the A-listers love. Simply part your hair in the middle and sleek it with a small tooth comb into a very low, tight ponytail. Then, add anything from 3 to 6 bobby pins on either side of your hair in a straight row. For a bold ‘n’ brave look, try working these ‘Drippin’ and ‘Glam’ letter clips into your party attire.
The Barrette Clip
If you’re the artsy type, you’ll love that these bad boys have made a strong come back. Perfect for the girls that need their hair off their face at all times, yet still want to look like they’ve actually tried. Go for the classic ‘half up, half down’ style and fascine one at the nape of your neck. We’re loving tortoiseshell, pastels and neon colourways this season.
