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.
