If you thought you said farewell to the butterfly clips of the ‘90s and ‘00s, you better think again.
Eilish shared her Y2K-inspired hair via Instagram and subsequently gave us flashbacks to our youth. Hands up who had full-blown temper tantrums before school while your mum struggled to get your butterfly clips and zig zag part perfect?
If you’re over having full blown ragers when you get your hair done, and are game for revisiting butterfly clips in adulthood, you’re in luck. Thanks to the resurgent popularity of Y2K styles, there’s a host of options to try.
Keep things classic and style your strands with a set of tortoiseshell, iridescent or glitter butterflies, or dip your toe into more modern interpretations — it’s entirely up to you! Stick to a single clip like Eilish, cluster them on one side of your hair, or sparsely spot them along your scalp if you’re rocking a half-up half-down hairstyle.
