hair accessories '90s

The ’90s was a decade that brought us outrageous fashion, boybands with frosted tips and the Tamagotchi.

“The bigger, the better” was the motto, and fashionable hair accessories in particular rose in popularity. Surprisingly, today the ’90s is making a strong comeback. High end fashion lines like Prada, Versace and Gucci are all incorporating ’90s staples in their recent fashion shows (luckily all of them were smart enough not to include frosted tips).

Watch the video below to watch the Luxy Girls try these fun hair accessories, or scroll down below for a quick recap. How many can you recognize? 

1. The Scrunchie

2. Barettes

3. Butterfly Clip

The Butterfly clip in the ’90s was just an easy way to get that long hair out of your face while you waited for your dial-up internet to load (if you don’t know what that is, consider yourself lucky). Its purpose has remained the same since although some have been featured on the runway very recently.

4. The Headband Comb

In the ’90s, that sporty spice look was ALL the rage. Sporty girls would wear this on the go to get their hair out of their face. It was the one stop fix for looking put together while still feeling confident. With Athleisure being a major trend in 2018, it’s no wonder these headbands are making a comeback. Ever tried one? It’s perfect for the gym.

5. Baby Butterfly Clips

Every teen celebrity wore them, and for good reason! They came in so many colors and were easy to clip away stubborn fly-aways. Today many people wear them for the same reason. They’re subtle yet add that certain ‘zing’ to your look. Bonus points – stack them row by row and make it look like a headband. Now that’s a banger.

6. Colorful Clip-in Hair Extensions

Experimenting with your look was such an important part of growing up in the ’90s, but the trend of coloring your hair a rainbow wasn’t something that teens and young adults wanted to do. Especially when dyeing hair would seriously damage the hair (did they have Olaplex treatments back then?). 

Instead, they used fun – and most importantly – non-damaging, colored clip in extensions, although this trend sort of died in 2008. 

What still remains true, though, is that clip-in hair extensions are the perfect solution for experimenting with color without having to dye your own hair. Ombre and Balayage hair extensions add dimension and highlights to your hair in just minutes, with none of the damage of bleaching. Give it a try! (Your ’90s self will thank you).
