    Post Retro hair accessories and styling tools

    What accessories and styling tools did you use in the 80s/90s? What hair styles did you do that you thought was so cool back then?
    Remember this one? Ahhh what was I thinking!

    LOL! Great thread! for me it was the old Banana Clips (the long semi-curved clips that conformed to the back of your head and made your hair look like a horse's mane

    I still use that! I did yesterday in fact. It's my go-to tool when I want to do a Victorian. I got a compliment, too, so score one for me! I also think flipped ponytails are a little more of a pain without my good ol' topsy tail.

    I think it's less about what tool or accessory you use and more about how you use it. If you used it to do something you looked back on and frowned upon after the fact well there you have it, but if you use it for something you still like then it's all good.

    I just bought a topsy tail knock-off from Claire's last month. I love it too and can't wait to use it more when my hair gets longer. I also loved the banana clips and bought 2 recently to play with. However those are so cheaply made both of them broke right away. I really liked the look of that long mane they create.

    Hey Now ! The 80's and 90's was just a little while ago.

    Retro ? I guess I'm a fossil now

    I could never stand the banana clips- even when my hair was shorter the weight caused the clip to dig into my skull...

    I loved my banana clips. I wish I could find one that could handle the hair I have now.

    I also love my topsy tail. I didnt see them for a long time and was worried I'd lose mine. I also used a hairdini until the material rotted off. I recently got the newer version but I just dont like it like the old one I was thinking about putting it on swap.
