Trends are constantly changing and adapting when it comes to fashion, including hairstyles. We are seeing many different trends making a comeback from the ‘80s and ‘90s, including scrunchies, headbands, and large hair clips.

Whether you’re looking for a different way to style your hair as an athlete, or just in general for an everyday look, it’s always fun to discover different ways to style it. Having our hair out of our face is a must on windy days, during exercise, or when our hair might be in need of a wash. 

Stay up to date with these hair accessory trends and give it a try on your next fun day out. Here are Hairstrong’s top hair accessories for 2021:

Colourful Scrunchies

Scrunchies have made a comeback in a big way. They are no longer just staples of the ’90s but a go-to hairstyle choice for many. One of the main reasons women choose to wear scrunchies is because they are way less damaging to your hair. 

Regular hair ties can rip and pull at your hair causing damage and breakage. If you put your hair up into a ponytail on a daily basis because you’re an athlete, or just generally love having your hair up, then I’m sure your hairdresser has mentioned damage throughout the years.

If you are hesitant or have thought that a cute scrunchie won’t be strong enough to hold your hair up while you run, spin or gym. Then you’re in luck! This is exactly why Hairstrong exists. We make Strongband™️ scrunchies that are the perfect mixture of stylish, gentle yet very durable and strong enough to keep your hair up through anything. Put it to the test, you will be amazed at how well it works. They also come in a variety of fun colours, and different strength preferences.

Grow your hair longer and stronger by ditching the regular hair ties and use a scrunchie instead!

Not Just For Athletes

We’ve made our scrunchies strong, and with women athletes in mind. But this doesn’t mean that you have to be an athlete to enjoy Hairstrong scrunchies. From Tokyo silver medalist Saikhom Mirabai Chanu to Hailey Bieber, everyone is rocking the scrunchie.

Large Hair Clips

Large hair clips are also something that can be considered a ‘90s trend making a comeback. They are so fun and so simple. One of our favourite ways to jazz up our day-3, dry shampooed hair, is popping in a couple of large snap clips, or even butterfly clips (now that are a blast from the past).

When it comes to clips, the consensus amongst women is the bigger or brighter, the better. Two jumbo clips right at the hairline can bring you from drab to fab. They make you look like you’re trying even if you’re actually not…

If you have an abundance of baby hairs and flyaways when you tie your hair up, grab a couple of clips and get those bad boys out of your face! This is a common tactic that many athletes use when they want to get that slicked-back look


Whether you’re using a headband to get your hair out of your face, or strictly for fashion, the options seem just about endless.

For Athletes

Sports headbands have been used by athletes forever - with a lot spotted at the Tokyo Olympics this summer. You can use them to hold back all of your flyaways, sweat absorption, or just because it is comfortable and looks cute. There are a lot of options when it comes to headbands, so it might take some time to find the perfect one for you. 

For Special Occasions

Headbands are not just for sporty girls! Headbands have become a fashion staple amongst women for decades, and are not going anywhere in 2021. There's nothing like a good headband to really bring an outfit together, and braided ones are so chic. They're soft and elegant and are the perfect addition, regardless of hair type.
