What's the perfect add-on to your beauty look? A hair accessory, of course! Just when you think you've seen it all, every year there seems to be a new "it" hair piece that rules the moment. In the '50s, a dainty bow-tied head scarf was perfectly housewife-chic. In the '60s and '70s, real flower crowns officially became the epitome of boho style—your outfit simply wasn't complete without a daisy topper. Fast-forward to the '90s and you had a bevy of creative hair charms and baubles, including butterfly clips, hair wraps and those infamous bra strap headbands (shudder).

While some of these accessories have cycled their way back into fashion, many have thankfully stayed in their decade for good. Above, in no particular order, you'll find the most memorable hair accessories of the last 50 years.
