Why Love Island girls carry hair straightener bags as clutches after fans left confused

Love Island 2021 is serving us some weird and wonderful moments. From Lucinda’s green hair to Jake’s unnecessary Kaz kiss, we’ve truly been blessed with some prime time entertainment.

Perhaps topping the list of most bizarre occurrences is the Love Island girls’ choice of handbags, because, well, they don’t seem to be handbags at all.

Instead of a cute clutch, Islanders like Sharon, Kaz, and Chloe have been accessorising with oblong heat-proof bags that hair straighteners and tongs come in.

This particular subject has been the focus of #LoveIsland Twitter chat all week, with many fans questioning whether they were mistaken in their assumption.

"Why is Kaz going on a date with a hair straightener bag?" one mused.

Another tweeted: "I thought Sharon’s bag was a travel case for hair straighteners."

To get to the bottom of this very pressing conundrum, we asked the experts at Cloud Nine – who have fully stocked the dressing room with hair tools this series – to comment on whether these bags are in fact from an electrical kit, or whether there’s just a new style of trending clutch that we don’t know about.

Get ready for an answer you probably weren’t expecting…

"Love Islanders are using the bags of their own accord, as I Saw it First haven't provided any. But they are very happy they're using them!"

There you have it, they are indeed hair straightener bags being taken on dates. Since I Saw It First is the fashion sponsor of the series, it’s unlikely the girls would have been able to bring in bags of their own choosing, so they’ve made do. We love a resourceful hun.

If you’re looking for further information on the exact bags, Cloud Nine also mentions, "Kaz was using the White Faux Leather Roll Bag for the Cordless Iron Pro [£349 here for the kit] – also used by Millie and Chloe when going to the Hideaway)."

And, "Sharon was using the Luxury Faux Leather Case for the Original Iron Pro [£249 here for the kit]."

What they’re packing in them we can’t be quite sure, but we’d bank on Faye definitely having a spare of her favourite neutral lipstick in the bag!
