Cute, girly and flirty, the butterfly clips instantly add a young and cute element to any hairstyle – so it’s no wonder they are back in fashion. A fantastic way to wear them is in the natural hair, as your textured curls are the ideal surface for clips to grab and stay in place.
2. Two side sandwiches with Scrunchies
The side buns, also known as “space buns”, were one of the festival’s biggest hair trends in the 90s. Today they have become mainstream. Instead of wild colors, glitter and braids, give your side sandwiches a softer, more everyday feeling with your favorite scrunches – another super cute accessory from the 90s. Whether you choose animal prints or refined velvet scrunchies, your side buns will stand out in the best way. It’s the perfect cute look for a weekend brunch, a summer day or a random appointment.

There are many different ways to wear butterfly clothespins, whether they are curly or straight hair.

Bantu knots involve creating spiral buns by twisting a section of hair around you. While popular in the 90s as a fun look for a rave or festival, Bantu’s knots have a long history.
