Fashion is a strange and wonderfully whimsical creature. Constantly changing and when one trend goes out of fashion, it is usually to make way for another one to make its way in. Just when we thought the fashion trends of the 80s and 90s have been laid to rest, runways are breathing new life into them and bringing them back.

How many of us have rummaged through our childhood wardrobes and our mums’, and fished something ‘vintage’ out and given it a new spin and worn it proudly? This is a time when all your childhood hair accessories are making a triumphant comeback, and we bring you this season’s edition of what is back from the 80s and 90s and how you can style them.
 
Scrunchies
 

Scrunchies

A safe way to keep your hair tied and away from your face. We say safe, because the fabric covering the elastic band protects your hair from breakage. Add some fun and retro magic to your everyday ponytails, buns and ‘huns’ with these colourful accessories. Get some in fun prints and vintage fabrics for an added twist.

Headband
 

Headband

This was recently spotted on Twinkle Khanna, and we love the colourful playfulness this brings to your look. For an chic upgrade, try the knotted headband or the ones with a leather finish.

Claw clips
 

Claw clips

We put these away thinking they were never going to come back. And boy, were we wrong. This clip has been seen in its newest all-silver avatar on International runways. Wear it one below the other for an edgy look.

Hair slides
 

Hair slides

These are the clips that we have all worn at one time or another, to keep our hair away from our face. Use a chic clip to sweep all your hair to one side and create a sophisticated look.

Bobby pins
 

Bobby pins

The humble bobby pin, a dozen available for as little as Rs.10 was considered the lingerie of hair styles, meaning it was supposed to hold everything in place, but should not be seen. But give it a new twist with these inspired bobby pin art and clip them in interesting patterns.
