How to wear hair accessories such as claw clips, barrettes and snap clips from the glorious '90s that are coming back in trend
Are you a lazy fashion girl who can't deal with styling your hair to complete your look? Don't lie now. Even if you're diligent, rejoice, as the biggest hair accessories — in trend, not necessarily in design — for fall/winter 2018 are anything but complex. The '90s nostalgia is clearly going strong with claw clips (your mom probably rocked them), barrettes (for them half updos) and snap clips (largely utilised to keep bangs away on sweaty days in primary school) making a comeback.
Styling tips to follow.
If you're going with the snap clip, do like Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed or Gwyneth Paltrow in the The Royal Tenenbaums and let the trend rise in a distinctive colour. Should shiny objects be your calling, take a peek at Chanel and Max Mara's runways for exercises on styling blinding diamante on messy buns. For the preppy, there's tortoise shell barrettes a la Kirsten Dunst in All I Wanna Do.
Trust Tom Ford to do a sexy take on the headband — far from the mad prints seen on Zoolander and the girly princess crowns on Blair Waldorf — the pared-back leather variety is very now. Also, above is a reminder of Alexander Wang's girls in corporate clothes and could-care-less slicked back hair clipped up haphazardly with one (or two) larger-than-life claw clips. Oversleeping and getting into the office with quickly washed wet hair has never looked so good.
