Love It or Hate It? The Return of Shoelace Hair Bows

Is it just me, or are some of today's styles leaving you with a deep sense of déjà vu? Between holey jeans and the return of acid wash, I'm getting unpleasant flashbacks of my junior high days.

These shoelace hair bows bring back awkward memories of spiral perms and wearing Electric Youth. Not a look I'll be returning to, but I can see a certain cohort bringing this back. Will you be among the shoelace-headed? While you answer, I will wait here with my plastic charm bracelets at the ready.

I can't believe everyone hates these so much - I think they are adorable! I agree, an adult should not wear these, just like an adult should never wear any kind of barette/colored hair clip/or other kind of little kid accesory, but on little girls?! come on, that would be so cute!

Ok, 1989, I had one in every color and every combo of colors. My mother MADE me wear these. So NO, I hated them.

Oh my. I had these when I was little. Those exact colors pictured, too. I'm not sure what happened to them and I don't miss them one bit. There's really no need for a comeback. LMAO @ mirrored Oakley sunglasses and snap bracelets
