Hair Clip Trend 2019: The Hottest Styles of the Year

by SHOPIFY API / DEC 31, 2019


    2019 made hair accessories cool again, and the humble hair clip has had quite a moment in the spotlight. From layered barrettes and decorated bobby pins, to crystal hair slides and embellished hair grips, the hairclip trend is still going strong.

    Whether you need to add a pop of glam to your look, want a simple but effective way to bring out your face, or simply want to add a finishing touch to your look, accessorising your hair with these trendy clips will always be a winner.

    You’ve most likely seen these practical, yet oh-so-chic accessories all over Instagram, but here are some of our favourite styles of the hair clip trend this year – and how to wear them.


    Bobby Pin Stacks

    The trusty bobby pin is an essential tool for subtly keeping your hair together. However, 2019 was all about bobby pin stacking and creating versatile cool hairstyles. To get the Instagram-worthy look, simply choose your favourite side to hold your hair back and stack the bobby pins in your desired pattern. Slip the bobby pins horizontally, in a criss-cross pattern or go for different shapes, like zigzags, to create a statement look. Any of these styles are perfect pretty much all hair textures and any hairstyle, from a low bun hairstyle to a middle or parting or even a ponytail.


    Pearl Embellished Clips and Slides

    Who said pearls were just for brides? The pearl decorated hair clips are timeless and often add a touch of elegance to any look. From jumbo clips to triangular shapes, pearl decorated hair clips are a statement accessory that’ll switch up any outfit, day or night. Add to any hairstyle – opt for one jumbo clip, or a pair of two small pearl hair slides to transform a basic daytime outfit. Go all the way glam and add these to your night-time look, or channel bridal glam and add your pearls to an elegant updo.


    Slogan Hair Slide s

    Worded (embellished) hair clips, or slogan barrettes are the perfect way to create flirty and playful looks easily. Tell your name or express your mood with a worded hairclip, or if you wish to personalise your look, go for alphabet clips. Pin into sleek hair, or at the side of a bun or ponytail. If stacking, these clips look equally cool alongside each other or worn at either side of your hair.


    Diamante Hair Clips

    Rhinestone hair clips have returned from the 90s! These are a fantastic way to add some sparkle to your look and make the perfect secret weapon for last minute hair touches. Wear these with simpler hairstyles, a bold lip, or natural-glam makeup and let the clips bring out the glam, or perhaps place in a bouncy afro or loose waves for an instant upgrade. Make an impact and wear on each side of your head, placed just above the temple.
