Simone Rocha SS18

Remember the 90s hair clips you wouldn’t leave home without? The back-to-school accessory has been recycled for SS18, going from basic and practical to out right head-swiveling. Sparkly and beautiful, these new must-haves are here to make a statement.

On the runways, Simone Rocha took the pearl route with bejewelled barnets while Zadig & Voltaire embellished their pins with shiny rhinestones. Glam and eccentric as usual, Versace added a midas touch to side partings with golden disc hair slides that paid tribute to Medusa. Forget your average humble hair clip, there’s nothing low key about these new pins.

Wondering how to style the trend? Go for minimal and understated, with a clean centre-parting, straight glossy hair and one or more hairclips fastened behind the ear. Don’t forget to go earring free for maximum impact.
