Butterfly Clips, Barrettes, and Bandanas: Y2K Hair Is Back

With Baby Phat’s impending return to the fashion world and a Lizzie McGuire reboot in the works, it’s safe to say we’ve entered peak aughts nostalgia. Normani’s “Motivation” music video—not to mention break out VMA appearance—paid homage to R&B classics both musically and visually with looks inspired by Beyoncé, Ciara, and Aaliyah. Even Gen Z can be seen sporting frosted lipgloss and shimmery shadow worthy of original aughts babes Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie on TikTok.

And while early '00s revivalism is hardly new, a cursory scroll through your feed shows Y2K hair is also back and arguably better than ever. Out are the prim padded headbands of 2018: half-up-dos, pigtails, and blinged-out barrettes reign supreme. From Kim Kardashian’s high-contrast highlights to Bella Hadid’s blonde flip, see how celebrities everywhere are ringing in the new millennium, at least aesthetically.

Barrettes and Butterfly Clips

To say barrettes have been having a moment is an understatement. You can’t walk down the street without spying a variation of Ashley Williams’ bedazzled word pins, but these celebrities are throwing it back with rainbow butterfly clips, glittery hairpins, and pearl barrettes galore.

We were just in LA and needed to find a One Hour Photo place quick. Sandwiched between little bodegas, my sister randomly found this place on Beverly Blvd in Korea Town called Tom’s One Hour Photo & Lab. It’s one of those rare mom-&-pop gems that has lasted thru trends coming and going and weirdly has come back around again without even realizing it. The owner, Tom, was SO adorable. He not only does film developing but (cheap) and nostalgic portrait sessions too. (He gave us digital files and we edited these but he’ll shoot on film if you ask him to.) Pick your favorite background! He made them all himself. 🥰 It’s cash only and he has no internet. He sadly told us his business used to be really busy back in 1991 when he opened but has slowed way down since the digital wave. So, like any good millennials would do we started an appreciation Instagram for him. @tomsonehourphotolab 🌹 Not sure he’ll even see this. Stop by, tell all your friends, and don’t forget to tag. Let’s keep this charming business afloat! #TomsOneHourPhoto

'00s Colors

Chunky highlights, reverse ombré, Gwen Stefani-inspired peroxide blonde burst back on the scene this summer, but Jordyn Woods and Megan the Stallion win for their bold honey blonde highlights and shocking red locks.

Flipped Ends

From Kylie Jenner's freshly chopped cut to Cardi B's blue 'do, lots of stars decided to go short and channel Gabrielle Union, Mary J. Blige and more millennial hair icons. Props to Rihanna for picking up on the trend all the way back at Coachella last year.

Bandanas

During their ill-fated trip to Mykonos, both of the Hadid sisters channeled Jennifer Lopez at the 2000 VMAs in matching white bandanas.
