13 Times the Girls of the Full House Cast Were Our Hair Icons
Throughout its original run from 1987 through 1995, Full House showcased some truly incredible fashion and hair moments. Spanning almost a decade, the show featured epic ’80s and ‘90s styles rocked by DJ, Michelle, Stephanie, Becky and Kimmy that — let’s be real — influenced many a grade school picture day hairdo among its viewers (*guilty!*). With Fuller House finally dropping on Netflix this weekend (February 26!) let’s take a look back at 13 of the best hair moments brought to you by the ladies of the Full House cast.
1. The Double Down: We’re feeling this look, DJ (both hair and expression, to be honest). For this ‘do, Ms. Tanner styled a short bob with curled-in ends, parted it down the middle and used undoubtedly the coolest barrettes ever to pin back the two front sections. Simple and classic.
2. GoStreaking: The world was not ready for this level of rocker-girl chic. As it turns out, Steph and Deej were the originators of the purple hair trend. A bit of purple dye, colored hairspray or hair chalk can have you easily looking like a third Tanner sister. Get it, ladies.
3. Side Parted Bob: Aunt Becky’s side-parted lob is super enviable. Use this look as inspo for your next chop, then grab your flat iron and style it to sleek perfection. Welcome to Babetown. Population: you.
4. High Half Updo: If Kimmy Gibbler’s iconically kooky sartorial choices weren’t memorable enough for you, just take a look at her ‘do. Half updos are hot on the hair scene this year, which just goes to show you that Kimmy’s tresses have stylish staying power.
4. Curls + Flower Crown: This look is pretty perfect for your next musical festival. Flowy natural curls with straightened bangs work together to make a super eye-catching textural contrast. Add in a flower crown and we’re totally sold.
6. The Gaga: This. Hair. Bow. Steph’s locks are part beauty pageant, part Lady Gaga, full awesome. The blunt bangs are timeless and the mega volume with the oversized bow accessory make it truly unforgettable.
7. Floral Headpiece: These feathered and hairsprayed bangs actually make the perfect perch for this glorious floral headpiece (headband? hair pin? It’s magical either way). Psst… we’ve got a great modern beauty hack for adding volume to your hair!
8. Sleek ‘n’ Straight: ’90s styles shifted away from the hairspray and more toward smoothed-out ‘dos like Kimmy’s here. The middle part and face-framing layers (a trend that’s come back big time) are simple touches that make this cut really easy to work with while maintaining its style. Nice choice, Gibbler.
9. Surf’s Up Waves: Oh my god, Becky, look at that hair. It’s fabulous! Like a true California girl, Becky keeps her waves tousled and beachy. So good.
10. Old Hollywood: DJ certainly made some waves of her own. These picture-perfect glamour waves are so Old Hollywood. Sidenote: Can we discuss that incredible LBD?! She is owning it.
11. Bad to the Bone: Michelle momentarily channels her inner Bad Sandy and graces us with this teased-out look like something straight from a Cyndi Lauper music video. The combination of this hair, the barrette and the oversized accessories is pure excellence.
12. The Scrunch Bunch: You can’t talk about Stephanie Tanner and not talk about scrunchies. They’re a package deal, and we kind of admire that about her. Sporting her standard feathered bangs, Steph opts for a mega high side pony and bright yellow scrunchie. Practical AND stylish.
13. Big Crimpin’: This look might just take the cake. The crimp level of DJ’s locks is absolutely off the charts, and we can’t handle the magnitude of our love for it. (And thanks for the pro tip, Uncle Joey).
