Trending summer hair accessories for when you still haven't been to the hairdresser

When you can't get to the hairdresser, it's time for some hair dressing

There are very few trends from the '90s that haven't made their way back to us. Bum bags. Ugly sandals. Anklets. There's even going to be a Friends reunion.

When it comes to hair trends, the '90s are still the moodboard du jour.  In its 2020 Report, Pinterest noted a 6309 per cent spike in searches for 'hair scrunchies.' Hair clips in every texture imaginable from pearls to diamantes are available at every price tag and somewhat bafflingly, the hair clasp has returned.

Looking for a way to keep your hair looking fresh, or to hide a root, until you can make it to the hairdresser? Look to the '90s, and the trends below.


The Headscarf


The easiest way to hide a root approaching your ears is by tucking all your hair into a bandana - the 90's trend no one wanted to return. Thanks for that, Bella.

Loewe Printed Will Silk Scarf, €359

The Scrunchie



Hangover hair but make it fashion.

Ganni Striped Cotton Scrunchie, €8

The Statement Slide



Remember when it comes to hair slides: more is more.

The Alice Band


Keep your hair off your face in this heat and your rooty blonde heavily concealed with another 90's revival, the headband. Bonus points for finding one oversized.


Topshop Raffia Headband

Topshop Hessian Knot Headband, €18

The Claw


Let the revival of the claw be a reminder to you that no matter how tired you find an accessory, the cyclical nature of fashion will one day make you wish you'd never thrown it out. Who would have thought that the tortoiseshell claw you wore two decades ago would be on your wishlist today? Again, you can thank Bella Hadid for this one. Check out London brand Tort, seen on Angela Scanlon above, for a selection of hair claws in joyful and vibrant shades and patterns.
