Beauty Vibes: Hair Clips

They're back.

Some looks will always remain staples in fashion. You know the drill: jeans, white t-shirts, Converse, etc. But what really makes those staples interesting is how you style them. This is where the new, cyclical trends that we see on the runway every season come in to play; recent examples include baseball caps, chokers, fanny packs, and even sneakers.  But all it takes is a few creative and daring fashion heads to breathe new life into a stale trend. The hottest trend at the moment, as seen at almost every show at Milan Fashion Week Spring 2017, is hair clips. Arguably out of popular vogue for the last couple of years, these clip-in accessories offer both a medium for self expression and a practical way to keep your locks in line as things get windier heading into winter.

Bottega Veneta uses this glittery and chunky hair piece to clip back sleek hair, creating an elegant and bellissima look.

Prada styled their slicked back low-pony with a single bobby pin, showing us all how simplicity and elegance go hand in hand. V Margot Tenenbaum.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
