Hair Inspiration Featuring Your Favorite ’90s Accessories (Yes, Butterfly Clips Included)

It’s not hard to see that the ’90s are back in all the best ways, and from the looks of it, they’re not going anywhere any time soon. We’re talking scrunchies, mom jeans, lip gloss, crop tops, platforms, headbands and more. We’re so nostalgic, we can’t even see straight. If you needed a sign to step out of your comfort zone and try a ’90s inspired hairstyle for the first time since you left grade school, this is it. We rounded up seven trendy hairdos featuring our favorite ’90s accessories, ahead (and yes, butterfly clips are included). 

’90s Look #1: Star Clips
Why use regular bobby pins when you can use a festive star clip to hold your hair back? Style an assortment of clips for a whole look or just reach for one to secure your bangs out of your face and you’re done. 

’90s Look #2: Scunchies
A half-up-half-down hairstyle isn’t complete without a scrunchie thrown into the mix. This simple ’90s accessory will elevate your messy bun, ponytail, braid, or even just the wrist you wear it on.

’90s Look #3: Chunky Clips
Bigger is better when it comes to your hair clips. Extra style points if you pair them with chunky hoop earrings. 

’90s Look #4: Headbands
Dirty hair? No problem! Headbands are the ’90s equivalent of today’s dry shampoo obsession. We suggest stocking up on different styles and patterns ASAP to match your outfits.

’90s Look #5: Rhinestone Clips
Rhinestone clips add a touch of glam to any hairstyle. Use them to accessorize an evening look or as a feminine element to balance out a true ’90s grunge outfit. 

’90s Look #6: Butterfly Clips
It wouldn’t be a ’90s hair trend roundup without butterfly clips. There are so many ways to wear this fun accessory, so don’t be afraid to experiment. Dig deep enough in your bathroom drawer and you just might find one hiding from your childhood. 

’90s Look #7: Pearl Clips
It’s all in the details: Peal clips are our favorite way to dress up a plain ponytail for a girly, yet sophisticated touch.
