What do Britney Spears, Alexa Chung, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch have in common? The ability to rock a hair slide, and look awesome while doing it. Made popular by pop stars, actresses, and teen idols in the nineties, the humble hair clip was given a new lease of life when it featured in the collections of Ashley Williams, Zadig & Voltaire, and Simone Rocha at Spring/Summer 2018 Fashion Week. Since then, the simple accessory has been transforming spring looks for influencers and fashion-loving girls everywhere.

Although this isn’t the first time hair clips have been a staple part of any good accessory collection, the likes of Karen Wazen and Simi Haze are experimenting with how they’re worn, stacking them in rows, and doubling up on statement-making pieces for 2018. The key to trying the trend and escaping “stuck in the nineties” territory is by opting for pearled, diamanté, or embellished barrette-style clips or colored bobby-pin slides, and wearing as many as your hair can hold at once. Keep scrolling to discover how the trend was worn on the runways, and how some of the chicest girls on Instagram are styling theirs.
