Trending hair accessories for when you really need to visit the hairdresser


by Holly O'Neill
07th Feb 2021

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. Beaded jewellery.

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

@bellahadid

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

The Scrunchie

Is the chignon the only hairstyle left that your rooty hair can handle? Don’t despair – let an electric bright scrunchie distract from, and tuck in, your split ends. Hangover hair, but make it fashion.

The Statement Slide

@slipintostyle

The simplest way to make your bedhead look opulent is to add as many statement hair slides as you can get in. Remember when it comes to hair slides: more is more.

The Alice Band

@heartzeena

Keep your hair off your face and your rooty blonde heavily concealed with another 90’s revival, the headband. Bonus points for finding one oversized, and keep it bright and colourful for Zoom calls to make sure your box stands out from the grid.

The Hair Claw

@angelascanlon

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.
