If there was a mascot for nostalgia, it would – without a single doubt – be Melissa Joan Hart. She first won us over as Clarissa Darling on Clarissa Explains It All and continued to do so as the magical Sabrina Spellman on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. And who could forget when she returned to our TV screens as Melissa Burke on Melissa & Joey? Basically, Melissa Joan Hart has a special place in our hearts – especially since she’s also a fan of nostalgia.
Yesterday, on Instagram, Melissa gave her followers a sneak peek at her beauty table, which featured a blue comb with pink tips. The actress explained, “I was given this comb from the hairdresser on #ClarissaExplainsItAll and it’s still going strong after 26 years! #loyal.” (That’s right – Melissa kept this one comb for 26 years. But can you blame her? If we were Clarissa Darling, we would, too!)
Clearly, Melissa subscribes to the old saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and we love that about her. Plus, just think: If Melissa saved this seemingly simple comb, what else did she keep from her past TV shows? Clarissa’s vibrant, oversized shirts? Sabrina’s mesh tops? Maybe both Clarissa and Sabrina’s perfectly ’90s hair accessories?
Alright Melissa, can you please work some magic and explain it all to us?
