There’s nothing better than receiving a genuine compliment on a piece we’re wearing. This feeling is only heightened when we happened to have scored that gem for a teeny-tiny price tag at a nondescript fast-fashion retailer. (Shh—no one needs to know!) This tends to happen most frequently these days with the simple addition of a hair clip.
Yes, my friends—the '90s hair accessory is back in full force and currently blowing up our Instagram feeds one snap at a time. From Alexa Chung to Pandora Sykes, celebrities and fashion influencers alike have been wearing the hair accessory ever since designer Simone Rocha set the trend in motion last year with her pearl-and-crystal slides ruling the runway.
But if you can’t quite justify spending over $100 on a hair clip, there are plenty of ultra-affordable options that are just as charming. Sweep back your bangs and snap a chic, embellished clip to one side for an of-the-moment look or layer a myriad of stylish slides throughout your hair (unquestionably the simplest way to jazz up your look).
See how the fashion set is wearing the trend and shop the best clips for under $20. Trust us—these are guaranteed to incite major admiration.
