These 90s Hair Accessories You Thought You Laid to Rest are Trending Again

Let me see you accessorize like they did back in the day.

Get ready for the best hair accessory news, and you might need to sit down for this one. 90s hair accessories are officially in for the season and you now have the greenlight to be as nostalgic and on trend as you want! For those who didn’t experience the trends, prepare yourself for clips, blingy barrettes, bandanas and experimenting with your hair part (think zig-zags). If you loved these trends a few decades ago, then you now have permission to resurrect your fave 90s hair accessories and wear them to your heart’s content. Check out some of our fave styles that we’ve already seen hit the streets:

Banana Grips

Banana grips are back and better than ever! We love how these clips create a range of hairstyles. Whether you’re in a rush, are already at work and need to get your hair out of your face or are going for a sleek, polished look, banana grips have got your back. Dress this accessory up by using some TRESemmé Extra Hold Hair Gel to slick your hair back. Secure your updo with the banana grip and you’re ready to go.

Keep it casual-chic with some simple barrettes. This is one of our fave 90s hair accessories because there are so many styles you can create. One of the chicest ways we’ve seen is a horizontal clip toward the top of your head. This look creates an intense frame for your face and completely keeps your hair out of the way. Make sure when you put your barrettes in that your hair is neat and smooth on top to give it a sophisticated look. Finish by giving the rest of your strands some texture with TRESemmé One Step Volume 5-in-1 Volumizing Mist.

Zig-Zag Headband

Is there anything more iconic and representative of 90s hair accessories than the zig-zag headband? This accessory instantly gives your hair texture and that permanent “comb-stroke” effect. If you’re going to wear this headband with an updo, then you might as well nourish your strands, right? Add some For Every Hair Type Revitalizing Hair Oil to the ends of your strands to keep them hydrated and frizz free.
