Is This Popular 80s Hair Accessory Making a Comeback?

Do you remember the banana clip from the 80's?

Before the popular claw clip and the butterfly clips from the 90s' there was the beloved banana clip. A banana clip is a concave U-shaped accessory with two plastic sides that come together in the middle with stretchy teeth that hold the hair in place. To use a banana clip for a ponytail, you merely unhinge one end of the clip, the whole thing takes about thirty seconds.

Well the banana clip is making it's comeback so I thought it would be great to do a tutorial.

    Like the headband, my super soft baby fine hair slides banana clips right out.
