Trends from the past seem to always make their way back into present times. Today, we see references of the 70s, 80s, and especially the 90s in today’s fashion. 90s fashion accessories are making a huge comeback in regards to statement hair accessories. Before the trend, hair pieces like bobby pins and hair ties were neutral colored and concealed under the hair. Today’s hair accessories are all about making a statement and making the wearer stand out, so they are full of bright colors, embellished with jewels, and more importantly…exposed!

Statement hair pins seen in streetwear and the runway shows are usually jeweled hair pins with sayings on them highlighting things like girl power and women empowerment or just have fun words like “GLAM” and “BABE”.

Ashley Williams has popularized the statement hair pins by including the hair accessory in its collections presented at London Fashion Week. The brand has attracted celebrities such as Selena Gomez who has been seen wearing the “UGLY” Ashley Williams hair pin out in public. Major designers have also hopped on the trend train. Gucci now has a crystalized Gucci hairpin which Rihanna wore with one of her Coachella looks this year. Chanel previewed a jeweled hair pin with the double C’s Chanel logo for their SS19 collection at Paris Fashion Week. Even retailers such as Missguided, Forever 21, Free People, Dolls Kill and Kitsch has collections and products including these cute and glamorized hair pieces!
