These Throwback Hair Accessories Are Even Better Than We Remember
As evidenced by returning trends like fall's bootcut jeans and summer's halter tops, Y2K nostalgia has been on our minds this year — but we're not confining the aughties aesthetic to our wardrobes. Throwback hair accessories and styles are here to complete the look, or offer an easy (and affordable) way to dip your toes back into the era. From colorful claw clips to bubble braids and beyond, get the tools you need to test out the comeback styles, below.
In neutral matte colors, the trends from our youth suddenly look all grown up.
For more colorful but equally-chic options, try this complete set of pretty clips.
A tortoise-shell style also looks a bit more sophisticated than the clamps we used to wear as kids.
Of course, you can certainly still play with claw clips in fun colors and patterns, like this on-trend checkerboard print.
For a sweet surprise, secure a half-up pony with a mid-sized butterfly clip.
A beautiful amber color makes mini butterfly clips possible to pull off as, you know, an adult.
Our younger selves would be ecstatic to know we're wearing stretch comb headbands again — and who can blame us when they're such an easy way to keep your hair (and overgrown bangs) out of your face?
Try out these fall-colored flowers for a cute addition to your next weekend look.
Hair coils are back on the runway, but thankfully, you don't need a designer budget to get in on the trend.
Not only do colorful coils spruce up a simple pony, but they actually look cute worn on your wrist!
If you're really looking to switch things up, rock a colorful face frame without the permanent color (and upkeep) with these cool clip-ins.
You can also get the look of a more natural "money piece" face frame without spending more than 20 bucks.
Bubble braids are back, and there are so many creative ways to style them! With this endless supply of elastics, you can try them all.
Thanks to an added elastic band, hair scarves are easier to wear and keep in place. Pick out one in a rich color for fall.
These soft floral patterns will complement all your fall outfits.
