And now, I just noticed that the young people are preparing to record a clip of eating bananas. Above TikTok (where else?) they’re having a great time, and the Gen Z folks who have probably never heard of them before or just seen them in old pictures of their moms doing them. strangely excited about those things.
TikTok user Adara Tran shared a video of how the banana clip makes her ponytail appear longer, thanks to the beautiful loose hairdo. “TikTok made me buy it. I’m obsessed,” the voiceover said. She points to the benefits, in her opinion: “looks longer, is better for hair health, better than curling irons for long or thick hair.”
And she’s not wrong. Designer Chloe Swigert of He + Loe Studio in Delray Beach, Florida, says banana clips are a more plastic-friendly alternative for almost any hair type. “Plugs are much easier on your hair than hair ties, and they don’t create that weird indentation, so they’re a better choice if you don’t want to mess up your curls,” she says. Seductive. She also appreciates how much they can make the ponytail look fuller.
As someone whose naturally wavy curly hair has a tendency to be pretty, I scoff at the idea that banana clip can really work for me. “Just you wait,” I thought, warning Tran that her newfound love would be short-lived for reasons I can’t really articulate, followed by, “When I your age…” and then I just finished when I caught myself turning into an old man yelling at the kids for their banana clips on my lawn.
Amazingly, even though they were more powerful, update style “banana comb”, Scünci still makes the same basic, super simple ones from my youth. And although I often ignore what the kids (also known as adults about 20 years younger than me) are claiming to be trendy and just doing my own thing, I decided, after all these decades, century, will give bananas. clip another chance.
Unlike Pearl, I had to turn my head upside down to make sure I was air drying, not combing, amplifying moisture, second day’s hair completely into sans bangs. Maybe this is because I don’t have her silky straight hair, or maybe it’s because she’s in her 20s and I’ve had constant shoulder pain throughout my 40s so far. The world may never know.
