Prepare for an unexpected 90s throwback: Bella Hadid's casual 'do is made of childhood dreams. 

Remember the bobble hair tie? Unlike "The Rachel," fierce scrunchies or butterfly clips, this '90s hairstyle has all but fizzled out. You might've scored a few at Claire's back in the day—way, way back in the day. They're youthful, playful and might be having a style resurgence thanks to the model.

While out with System Of Service bringing holiday toys to those in need, Hadid rocked a brown clip that clasped her locks back. The two bobble hair ties were fastened behind her ears. Not only is she looking good with her old-school style, but she's doing good in the process.

Now that we're reliving our childhood, you'll have to excuse us: we're going to go full-on '90s with a Sailor Moon marathon and attempt the greatest '90s blowout with a little help from TikTok. Wish us luck!
