Whether you’ve been obsessively scrolling Instagram or you’ve actually set aside your phone to live in the present moment, you may have noticed that cool hair clips are popping up everywhere. Celebrities such as Megan Thee Stallion, Alicia Keys, and K-pop star HyunA have all worn the trendy hair accessory, which is giving us flashbacks from the ’90s when your hairstyle wasn’t complete without a well-placed butterfly clip.
These days, while the hair clips that have been trending are in many cases equally (if not more) glittery and colorful than decades ago, they’ve definitely evolved. They’re adorned with pearls, fashioned in resin, and some of them quite literally make a statement — rhinestone-encrusted ones, no less. At this point, hair clips have become so popular that it can be a bit daunting to figure out where to start if you’re looking to get in on the trend. But that’s why you have us.
Unsure how to style yours? Hairstylist Justin Marjan says to use your facial features as a guide. “For example, around the face for higher placement, place along the same line as your eyes or eyebrows,” she tells Allure. “If placing behind the ear, place along the same line as your cheekbones.”
Ahead, some of our favorite hair clips we’ve found on the internet, which you’re sure to love.
