When was the last time you wore a hair clip or barrettes? Think hard. It was probably way back in the ’90s. While the barrettes laid low for the past two decades, it’s finally making a major comeback — be it in stores, on the street style circuits, or the fashion runways.
Earlier this March when Chanel showed its Fall/ Winter 2019 show in the Grand Palais of Paris, there were barrettes aplenty.
Likewise on the street style circuit, we spotted hair clips from London, Milan, to Paris.
