Hair gems are BACK – and here’s where you can buy them all

Even Selling Sunset's Christine is on the 90's trend

Best hair gems

by Caitlin Casey |

From low-cut jeans to butterfly tops, Y2K trends have been taking over the fashion sphere - and now, hold onto your locks peeps, because hair gems are BACK.

Yep, that's right, those little sparkly hair gems that you can pop straight onto any 'do are totally in fashion and we've seen them glittering on influencers, celebs and beyond. So, of course, we're totally obsessed with them too.

Just in time for festival and pub garden season, we'll be upping our up-dos and touching up our waves to make some dazzling new hairstyles. From glitter hair clips to stick-on options, there's something for everyone who wants maximum impact for minimum effort.

Selling Sunset's Christine Quinn is a huge fan of sparkly hair gems and statement hair accessories, having donned a fabulous set of colourful gems on the first episode of season two (we're obsessed, btw).

If only we could pull it off as well as Christine, eh?

Well luckily for us, now we can - because there are loads of hair gem options out there to choose from. Pop a few in a sleeked back bun or dazzle through some messy curls for an easy look that everyone will remember.

Sparkle the night away...
