For a while the 90s hair trend was bubbling away and slowly gaining momentum for a resurgence, but then Alexander Wang – a favourite designer of the Kardashians and Beyoncé – put the accessory centre stage at his Autumn/Winter 2018 runway.
And all of a sudden, what was once a slightly daggy, and dare we say a ‘mumsy’ accessory, has now been given a trendy update.
If you track the history of the humble hair clip, you’ll know it’s always had a certain French-girl, nonchalant chicness to it.
Jennifer Aniston was a fan of the style during her run as Rachel Green on Friends throughout the 90s, and Angelina Jolie even wore one when she attended Washington’s Capitol Hill to encourage government funding of the Assistance for Orphans and other Vulnerable Children in Developing Countries Act in 2005.
Most recently, Kaia Gerber - that's Cindy Crawford's supermodel daughter - was seen with a glitzy, silver rendition from Alexander Wang.
Furthermore, fashion outlets like Witchery, ASOS and Mimco have produced their own designs, and walk into a Mecca Maxima, and you'll even see LA-based brand Kitsch serving up their metallic and marble-glazed options.
Personally, we're all for its well-timed return. It's the one second hairstyle that anybody can master, regardless of skill, and pairs almost perfectly with the other 90s hair trend that's made a resurgence thanks to Meghan Markle - the, erm, sl*t strand.
So without further ado, here are some of our favourite claw clips that you can 'add to cart' right now:
