Fashion trends are hard to keep up with. One day you’re ahead of the game and the next you’re as last year as a dad sneaker.
Fashion bible Vogue stated this year is all about nostalgia which would explain the rebirth of our favourite childhood hair accessory- the humble hair clip.
Remember when you had 10 different types of hair clips and barrettes in your drawer, and then in the mid 2000’s you were like "what are these still doing here?" and threw them out?
Well, the hair clip is back and with strength.
The hair clip trend has been brewing for a few years now, but this season it has hit fever pitch and oh boy are we ready.
We got our first look at the accessory again early this year with designer brands like Gucci, Alexander Wang, and YSL sending their models down the runway bedazzled with hair clips.
But now, the hair clip has taken over Instagram.
How to wear hair clips
Like many trends, the hair clip trend is not a new one. This particular hair trend has previously been kept behind the scenes and out of the public eye. But, that doesn’t mean it’s a difficult one to master.
In fact, when it comes to nailing the look, simply part your hair, choose a side (or both sides, (if you're feeling bold), and pull your hair back with your brand-new clip.
One tip is to stick to the same texture or colour palette, just so you don’t look like 9 year-old you who was let loose in Diva in the 90’s (RIP).
Trend-setting celebs like Kendall Jenner, Alexa Chung, and Hailey Bieber are already nailing the hair clip.
From Gigi Hadid rocking gold bobby pins, to Alexa Chung’s 20’s inspired pearl barrette, here are some of the ways you can steal their style.
