What are these hair things in the front?
So I like this trend of hair binding on the front pieces of hair. Is this a real life trend in Japan too? What are they, they're not rubber bands right?

Don't think they're rubber bands but I'm sure it's a trend and not just in Japan. I've seen a few.

Aren't they...
...a type of hairband?
Even [anime] guys have them.

Yeah, I can't tell if they are rubber bands, ribbons, or something in between.

I always I assumed they were half hairband and half artistic license.

Was just going to post this as well. Hair clips. Though reading hair bands make sense too. But I'll stick with clips.

Hmm... Japan seems to make them more common than they are, but I believe they are hairbands and/or ribbons.

I've seen them, specifically like Miyuki's there in the example. But that was only once and only worn occasionally. Anime seem to make it seem so many more people wear them and that they are worn daily.

It could be different in Japan I am not sure, but where I live its very rare to see them.

Hmmm it must be a ribbony clip then? At least for Miyuki's. Not sure about Tina's or those red ones though. I hope it's a growing trend and not a shrinking one, it would be fun to wear them.

Uka's are definitely ribbons (to match the ribbon tying her hair up), and I think the blue haired girl's is a ribbon too. I feel like Tina's would be hairclips/bobby pins though since they're so ridged. And for those interested, Lain's is a hairclip- the original character designer did a rough sketch showing how it works, it's like a foldable X shaped hair clip.

They are starting to look a lot more ribbon-like, but I wonder how you put the ends of the ribbon together. And for Tina it could be a bobby-pin like thing, and it's just anime magic that makes the flat sides always face you in the show? Hmm...
