These nostalgic hair accessories are giving us playground flashbacks
Seven-year-old us is screaming RN

We have a confession to make: we keep catching ourselves coveting nineties and noughties-inspired accessories.
From homemade-looking rainbow friendship bracelets to glitter acrylic handbags, our obsession with the nostalgia of our childhoods is slowly seeping into every aspect of our lives. Be it a childhood dream come true or some kind of waking nightmare, we’re throwing ourselves into the childishness of it all and embracing the kitschy vibe.
Our hearts have been stolen by all the throwback hair accessories we’ve been seeing on our IG and Pinterest feeds and we *need* to talk about it.
So, without further ado, here are some of the hair accessories that are making us go *awooga*:
FORD MILLINERY Rachel Headband
Blair Waldorf could never… this neon velvet peach headband moment *quite literally* has us screaming from pure giddy excitement. We warn you, once this stunner goes on you’re not going to want to take it off.
Miss Shop Large Brown Flower Hair Clip
Everything about this is *perfection*. We don’t want to hear anything to the contrary either. This burnt orange daisy clip is plastic-y in all the right ways. Did someone say kitsch?
Balmain Paris Large Clip Tortoise
Nothing beats the practicality of a claw clip. The fact that whenever we wear one we feel like Erin Brockovich doesn’t hurt either. Very much giving “I don’t need pity, I need a paycheck” vibes.
Reliquia Quinton Scrunchie Blush Organza
Forget the scrunchies of yesteryear. This blush organza number elevates the trend, making the wearer feel more like a pro-level ballerina than a 12 year old.
Zahar For Mocha Ursula Hair Clip
Remember hair slides? This stunning pearl-adorned gold clip is like their sophisticated older sister. A simple but standout addition to any hair moment - this is one pick that is versatile enough for work or play.
Scunci Snap & Barrette Clips Fashion 6 Piece
Layer up some chunky barrette clips in bold colours for an updated playground-friendly style that can translate to any modern setting. Weekend brunch with the girls or date night? It’s entirely up to you.
