What to Wear: A Head’s Up On Hair Accessories
When we mention Alice bands, scrunchies and snap clips we are taken back to ‘90s school days when your choice of hair accessory determined your social status.
Following the resurgence of bum bags, platform trainers and cycling shorts, it was only a matter of time before our favourite hair accessories made an appearance on the runway. Overtly feminine and designed to attract attention, be prepared to up your head game with larger than life bows, diamanté slogan pins and pearl-encrusted barrettes.
Giving us Blair Waldorf realness, Prada reignited our love affair with the headband in SS19 and this season sees new hairband additions from WALD BERLIN and Jennifer Behr. Whether you’re into crown like volume bands as seen on Anne Boleyn circa 1535 or bejewelled tiaras, there is no limit to the once Fergie favourite.
We have gone from stacking bracelets to stacking barrettes and when pairing with a wet look hair slick, more is more when it comes to an embellished bobby pin. Alessandra Rich and Simone Rocha has us curating our hairstyles with a fine attention to detail.
We are curious to see if this revival may see the return of the bulldog, banana or butterfly clip? Is that too far into the Nineties vault? Either way we are here for it.
