Note to nostalgia hounds: The banana clip is back.
Fashionistas and hypebeasts have tunneled their way through early aughts and ’90s fashion trends over the past few years— think low-rise jeans, Paul Frank tees and platform slides. But now they’re starting to borrow from an earlier era: the 1980s. Shoulder pads, acid-wash denim — as seen on the newest American Girl Doll “historical character“ born in 1986 — and chunky jewelry are all a wink to that decade.
But throwin’ it back goes beyond duds, and into ‘dos.
The banana clip, a thin, curved double comb that hinges at the bottom and locks in a faux-hawk-meets-pony look has returned.
“Banana clip” has seen a sharp search interest increase in the past 12 months according to Google Trends, and clips in general are getting more interest online. On Pinterest, there’s been a 105% search increase in the phrase “how to style hair clips” compared to this time last year.
The banana clip, a drugstore hair accessory-aisle staple, works by scooping up hair to create a cascading, waterfall effect that hides the clip itself in textured or curly hair.
Expect to see the tress-tamer make an appearance during Zoom meetings and grocery runs, breaking up a cycle of low ponies and high buns — the favored looks of working from home.
Let’s call it a hair accessory revolution, joining the ranks of Insta-age revived barrettes, the headband, and her dramatic, padded-out cousin, the hatband, credited to Kate Middleton. The pandemic saw bright, flashy hair pieces take a back seat behind sensible wares such as pony holders and claw clips — a ’90s-era, low-maintenance, no-damage staple popularized by Jennifer Aniston in “Friends,” and spotted on the heads of trendy supermodels including Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
At the very least, a banana clip can keep the results of botched at-home haircuts back of mind.
