No beauty or fashion trend comes and goes as often as hair accessories. We went from the bow headbands of Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf in 2007 to pearl-detailed designer hair clips in 2013. Then, during lockdown, TikTok made the ’90s claw clip come back with a vengeance. Because everything old is new again, the cutest hair accessories for spring bring all of these trends together and now, anything goes. It’s a lot more fun this time around.
Oversized bows have never felt chicer, bedazzled headbands feel fresh again (really), and clips and pins are colorful, funky and creative. Just look at the last few big red carpets. Selena Gomez wore a big Chanel hair bow to the SAG Awards, where Juno Temple, Helen Mirren and HoYeon Jung also went for eye-catching hair accessories.
Y2K-era hair accessories are blowing up, as well. Bella Hadid wore the popular early-2000s stretch comb headband to her sister Gigi’s birthday party this past weekend and you cannot pass a girl on TikTok who isn’t wearing some type of claw clip. It’s the easiest and often most affordable way to get in on spring’s biggest trends. Shop some of our favorite styles, below.
