Do you remember the days where hair clips are actually a necessity and not an accessory? Those sturdy black snap clip barrettes scattered across the dressing table with hopes of it not rusting in a short span of time. As we start throwing them out as the years passed, it is back again with a vengeance but now we’re actually more accepting of it.

That’s because these hair clips aren’t something that looks like they’re from the 90s anymore. They are current and updated — an accessory instead of something essential to hold down your strands. Even luxury giants like Chanel and Versace have followed this trend. However, credit where credit is due; it was Simone Rocha who first showcased the faux-pearl embellished hair clip last season which left the internet wanting more.

And why limit yourself with just one hair clip? We’ve seen designers styling models on the runway with multiple hair clips to create depth and a more extravagant effect as long as they look good on you. Here are some runway-worthy 90s-inspired hairclips that you’d want to have the next time you decide to play dress up.
