Do you remember getting your hair done for school when you were little?

The classic, slightly wonky ponytail or a set of plaits, followed by the hard snap of hair slides to keep all the wispy bits under control. Your hair clips were generously decorated with glitter, diamante, plastic animal heads or stiff little bows.

If you had thick hair, they broke a lot.

If you had fine hair, there wasnt loads for the clip to grip onto and it pulled.

Whether you love or loathe it, the 90s hair clip has returned to the catwalk.

The claw clip, butterfly clip and comb slide have all been features on the catwalk for AW18, with Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung and Faustine Steinmetz all embellishing their models hair with variations of these accessories.

Like chokers, tiny sunglasses, crop tops and having two over-gelled strands of hair hanging down in front of your face, the hair clip is very much a part of the 90s aesthetic.

Think Sarah Michelle Gellar in cute butterfly clips, or Mary Kate and Ashley Olsens hairstyles in the Passport to Paris era.

Hair clips have also recently made an appearance on celebrities like Bella Hadid, who wore contrasting straight bobby pins and Selena Gomez, who rocked an oversized crystal barrette that spelled out the word ugly.

You dont need to go and spend lots of money on a designer accessory (unless you want to, of course) because affordable brands like Accessorize, ASOS and the spiritual home of your young self – Claires Accessories – have you covered.

The return of hair clips is also excellent news for lazy fashion lovers.

You can instantly update your look by clipping in a statement slide and forgetting about your hair for the rest of the day.

Whether you go for thick tortoiseshell claws, gleaming barrettes, kawaii-inspired girly slides or a sleek, geometric clip that really pulls your look together, you can work this seasons retro hair trend any way you want to.

A good rule of thumb: if Mary Kate and Ashley would have worn it in the 1998 classic Two of a Kind, then you cant go wrong.
