The clip comeback

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but everyone’s wearing clips in their hair again. Well, that’s how it appears on Instagram and I have to say I’ve fallen for this little trend and picked up a few matching sets of oversized barrettes to add to my accessory collection.

The grown-up version of the hair clip involves a few key differences to what I use to hold my daughter’s fringe in place for the day – they’ve got to be bold, they’ve got to be oversized, and they’re best seen in pairs or groupings.

The great thing about this trend is that it’s affordable, too. A spend of under $10 will get you started on your collection and trust me, one set will probably not be enough.

You’ll see a few major trends covered off in clips also – leopard print (of course), pearls (huge in accessories this year), acrylic and wording on hair clips is big. Sparkles never go astray either.

Here are a few of my picks available now at Toowong Village.

Lovisa clip pack $15.99
Lovisa diamante clip pack $19.99
Hepburn & Co snaps $7.95 at David Jones
Kmart accessory pack $8
Lovisa clip duo $17.99
