As if 80s hair wasn't crazy enough on its
own, the banana clip added that little extra something to take your
feathered bangs and layered tresses just a little further. In the unlikely
event that you don't know what a banana clip is, allow us to enlighten.
Given its name for its shape, the banana clip is a hair accessory made
popular in the 80s that allowed you to pull your hair back from each side,
with the clip (in its banananess) following the contour of your head in
the back. The effect is like a mane of hair running down the middle of the
back of your head. A photo definitely will do more justice in the area of
explanation than words. So here it is.
We found these lovely pics

site readers and the Internet. The first (at left) is Alicia B. looking totally
bodacious in her banana clip. The third (at right) is from Bethes blog. Thanks for letting us use and share
