Maybe you’re still shocked that supermodels are wearing fanny packs and people are even considering tying off a ponytail with a scrunchie without it being part of a Halloween costume.

Vintage hair accessories, like the banana clip your mom swept her hair back with, are back. And designers like Alexander Wang and Prabal Gurung have given the trend their stamp of approval, so you better bet celebrities are to follow.


At Wang, the addition of these hair accessories for women was inspired by the executive woman of the ’80s, or when Redken Global Creative Director Guido Palau says the world first saw female empowerment in the office. “We’re sort of seeing them again through different eyes. Often things that we considered were bad or a bit gone off can be looked at again. It’s about how cool they can look again,” he told InStyle.

In Wang’s case, he kept it modern with metallic clips, styled with slicked-back, shiny hair. But don’t discount the tortoiseshell finish Mom loved oh so much. Paired with subtle, glowy makeup and jeans and a tee, it’s the chic yet practical alternative to a hair tie. But it wasn’t just these claws that had a comeback. The comb headband made an appearance, which signaled a trend is on the rise for fall 2018. Get ahead of the game by shopping these vintage-inspired buys now.


Wendy Williams to Take Three-Week Hiatus Due to Thyroid Issues

Wendy Williams is taking a break. The TV host, 53, revealed on The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday, February 21, that she is taking three weeks off due to issues with hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease.

“My doctor has prescribed — are you ready? — three weeks of vacation,” she told viewers after detailing her symptoms. “I was pissed. Encore performances, really?”

Williams’ health update comes one week after she took three days off from her syndicated talk show because she was experiencing flu-like symptoms. She shared an Instagram video on Wednesday, February 14, of herself sipping orange juice while relaxing at home in a bathrobe and a head wrap. “I had to be talked out of going to work today and taking off a few days to get myself together,” she explained.

The former radio personality returned to her show on Monday, February 19, and told viewers that she was feeling much better. “I must say, it’s good to be back,” she said. “I apologize to those of you who had tickets for the show Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. I was not here. I was flu-ish with complications. But no more.”

Williams previously had a health scare in October 2017, when she fainted on TV during her live Halloween episode. Producers rushed to the stage as the broadcast cut to a commercial. When the host returned just minutes later, she explained that she was dehydrated and overheated in her Statue of Liberty costume.
