21 Barrettes That've Come A Long Way From '90s Butterfly Hair Clips

If you were a child or teen of the '90s there's a very good chance that at one point in your life you were seen wearing those tiny butterfly hair clips. Now, two decades later, this beloved trend is making a comeback and barrettes and hair clips have started popping up on the heads of your favorite Instagrammers (we see you, Alyssa!) and fashion people. But instead of running to Claire's like you did in the past to restock on clips (a moment of silence for all of the hair ties, bobby pins, and hair accessories that went missing in the world — they are lost but not forgotten) you can now head to your favorite fashion destinations to get in on the barrette revival.
From a 6-pack of hair clips that retail for under $4 to super-luxe statement hair clips from Versace, there's something for everyone to add to their hair arsenal. It's the perfect solution to making your bedhead look slightly more tamed or to add some quirk to a super-sleek ponytail. Once you start collecting them, you won't be able to stop.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
