Hair gems are back in a big way — and we are 100 per cent on board. We never thought we'd see the day either. Yet, here we are.

The 2018 take on hair gems is very different to the last time we visited this trend. In the '90s, hair gems required a meticulous application process. For the most part, they were used as a means of pulling hair back in a half-up half-down style — bonus points if there was some crimping involved.

Now, hair gems are a lot more #fashun. But don't just take our word for it — earlier this year, at Sydney's Fashion Week, Kela Hair Jewellery was spotted on the C/MEO runway.

Rather than being associated with a hair gem-specific 'do, jewels can be used to adorn the modern styles we know and love. Picture a big bouncy blow dry… but with hair gems. A sleek low-pony… but with hair gems. Or soft curls… but with hair gems.
