The '00s were a magical time where everything was full of fake rhinestones and bold patterns. Bigger was better — especially when it came to hair accessories. Everyone from Britney Spears to Mariah Carey had fun with hair accessories back then, which meant the rest of us did too! This list of '00s hair accessories that you almost definitely wore at one point or another will bring you back to the good old days.
As crazy as trends were in the '00s, hair accessories were definitely the biggest statement-makers. People wore everything from butterflies to hair wraps and everything in between. These trends went way past your average headband. Rocking a fun hair extra was an easy and cheap way to upgrade your outfit make you feel good about yourself. Sure, some of these things seem ridiculous now, but they sure were fun to rock once upon a time.
I can still remember going into Claire's for their giant accessory sale and snagging one of just about everything to wear in my hair. Ah, the good old days. There was a certain satisfaction that came with sliding on a butterfly clip and feeling on top of the world. Deny it all you want, but you know you wore all of these trends at some point in the 2000s.
1. Fake Hair
Odds are you had a few of these hiding in your drawer. They came in every color imaginable, even some very unnatural ones.
How do you complete the perfect '00s up-do? You twist in some rhinestones, of course!
3. Snap Clips
I specifically used these to clip back my super stylish early '00s bangs.
4. Hair Jewels
These never did stay in my hair, but that didn't stop me from trying to rock them repeatedly.
These were everywhere! People wore them as hair accessories and even clipped onto spaghetti strapped shirts.
If you didn't own one of these in every color, then I don't know what you were doing with your life.
7. Hair Wraps
These were the coolest things — until the machine you used to DIY them left your hair in a tangled mess.
8. Spray Color
This was the ultimate accessory. A little bit of color went a long way throughout middle school!
You can try and deny it, but odds are you rocked every one of these at some point in your life.
