Is this the season of the Y2K hair accessory? From kitschy butterfly clips, scrunchies, and chunky headbands, we’re seeing the return of all the best noughties-esque accessories. This time, Bella Hadid was spotted sporting a statement headband many of us left in the early aughts—reconfirming that nostalgic trends won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
The supermodel wears a plastic stretch comb headband atop her dark mane, providing a nostalgic accent to her dark pinstripe mini skirt and vest ensemble that she wore on the street on April 23. Ever the Y2K poster girl, Bella Hadid could have opted for the zigzag parts, headscarves, or the streaky highlights that she’s become known for — instead, she incorporated the headband as a sleeker, more simplistic take on the trend. It served as the ultimate accessory to complement her sultry fit.
Even more, Maddy Perez, played by Alexa Demie, in the hit HBO drama Euphoria, is portrayed in the season two premiere sporting the headband at that New Year’s Eve party. When paired with an LBD, matching gloves, and strappy heels, there’s something incredibly effortless, fun, and sexy about it.
