The Newest Fashion Craze In China Is Hair Clips That Look Like Food

Out: Plastic plant hair clips. In: Plastic meat.

Last month, plastic hair plants took over China as the new fashion trend.

On popular e-commerce site Taobao, over a million of the clips that instantly turn wearers into Daisy-Head Maizey have been sold just by one vendor, not to mention hundreds of other sellers offering the same products.

But in the world of fashion, one week you're in and the next you're out. And the Chinese internet has decided to prove that by quickly brushing aside the "old" trend and upgrading to the next level: plastic food clips.

You want to put a fried egg on your head? Now you can put a fried egg on your head.

Need to adorn your head with the highest of ~streaky pork fashion~. You're covered now.

It's a regular buffet for your hair.

While most internet users have been quite shocked by the stunt, the self-proclaimed inventor says on the store's Taobao product page they have their hands full producing more clips because of the high demand.

There were also actually buyers who sincerely commented that the clips — like this dashing and delicious dumpling — are cute.

Just one request though: burrito clips. Make it happen.
