It seems like everyone in the hair fashion know is wearing those clip barrettes from the ‘90s in their hair. The trend is becoming more noticeable on Instagram, with celebs and fashionistas showing off those familiar triangular hairpins.

Worn by children in the past, these days it’s the Cool Girls who are giving these retro clips the seal of approval.

Solange wore quite a few of them at the CFDA Awards in 2016, probably referencing her album cover for A Seat at the Table

She was the only one then, but now Instagram seems to be overflowing with snap clips, often worn on either side of a typically ‘90s center part.

Another on-trend way of wearing them is to wear them on only one side of your head.

Miley Cyrus rocked the look with a pearl-encrusted snap clip when she appeared in James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke.

So, we’re making a prediction that snap clips are going to be very popular in the season to come. The best news of all is that if you like the look, you can pick up a pack of clips for about $5!
