They had their big moment back in ’00s, when I was a kid, and they reached only the kids fashion section (or I was too busy climbing trees and fighting with playground buddies to notice adults wearing them – yep… I was quite tomboy back then and fashion was something I was NOT interested in). Hair clips, pins, hair grips – they came back stronger than ever, taking over runways, Instagrammers and blogger feed, Pinterest and streets.
The difference now is the variety. There are so many different hair accessories, that will hit the right costumer in their needs, starting from minimalistic golden barrete hair grips, that looks amazing in one-side-sleek hair (’80s inspired), or dreamy, romantic hair clips, looking amazing on the date night, or put all over your hair to add extra drama to your faux fur look.
Doesn’t matter if your hair is curly, straight, long or short, if you like wear your hair up or loose – you can still add a little bit of sparkle to your outfit! You can get budget-friendly (and pretty good quality) options on ASOS, or go totally crazy and invest in jewellery (master)pieces!
Pearls are a BIG THING, and still making their way into spring unmercifully. They are presenting themselves perfectly with the ‘all in’, Michelle Pfeiffer inspired looks, but in my opinion the most impressive way to wear pearl clips is with boyfriend style suit or with classic blue shirt + mum jeans, which allows them to play the first role (especially if there is more than just one hair clip/pin in your hair!).
Make a statement with your hair clip and choose the one that is extra oversized or… speaks your mind! Again – I would style them into my oversized suit look or really basic white t-shirt and ripped jeans look, just to add a little bit of unexpected to very expected outcome. These add quite strong accent to your look, but I really love seeing statement hair clips in ‘risky’ outfits, like: crazy pink checked midi skirt, neon pink turtle neck and red kitten heels look, plus extra cute mini bag (just not on me).
More is more.
This is the perfect way to check if hair accessories are right for you – all you need is two pack of 20-piece pack (extra cheap, available in almost every store) of classic barrete hair grips and… put them all in your hair. And here starts the fun – your creativity is the limit . You can create amazing shapes and constructions on your hair and get inspired by searching on the Internet. Plus barrgete hair grip is the kind of thing that always gets lost, so even if you will end up not liking this look, you will at least end up having a few weeks supply of them.
