Hair accessories are having a huge fashion moment. Since the debut of the padded Alice bands at Prada Spring/Summer '19 and Ashley Williams's diamanté hair slides from Summer '18, what you wear in your hair is one of Summer's biggest trends.

With the prairie aesthetic continuing strong, our newfound fascination with childlike cuteness suggests that fashion is having a bit of an infantile obsession. There are tons of accessory styles trickling down from designer collections to the high street, and they all have one thing in common: size.

Whether you love the padded Alice bands, oversize hair clips, or massive pearl barrettes, our supersize approach to hair couture gives the illusion of a youthful smallness by contrast. Think about it; standard-size clips always look massive on our little heads when we are kids. While we opt for oversize accessories, we're channelling a bygone girlishness that supersexy Instagram often overshadows. Fashion is a world of extremes, and trends are never an island, they're a response.

Big hair clips look great on long hair, which balances out their novelty size. But if you have supershort or Afro hair, then this popular trend might look a bit wonky on your cropped cut or tiny curls. Ahead, I've found five different hair accessories that were practically made for supershort hair so you can have fun with your look without compromising on style. The best part? They are all super affordable, and most of them can be made yourself.
