Our Favorite ’90s Hairstyles Get a 2018 Upgrade
If you grew up in the ’90s, we bet you’ve worn some pretty epic hairstyles. Mini buns, high ponytails, and some of the best hair accessories around! These trends hold a special place in our hearts. If only we could rock the hair we used to back then, right? Just like our favorite throwback fashions, these hairstyles are making a comeback with a modern upgrade that you can wear while still #adulting. Check out our favorite takes on the classic looks below.
1. High Ponytail: An upgraded version of Stephanie Tanner’s famous side ponytail, this pony is playful yet straightforward. Create loose waves, pull your hair up, and add a scrunchie to stay true to the ’90s trend. (Photo via Paul Archuleta/FilmMagic/Getty)
2.Tendrils: Paired with buns, braids, half-up ponies, and the like, tendrils were the cherry on top back in the day. Today, create a put-together ‘do that you can wear everywhere from the gym to the office and even out on the town. Pin your hair into your favorite updo and pull long pieces out to frame the front or side of your face. Be sure to add a no-frizz spray to tame your hair all day. (Photo via Kevin Mazur/Getty)
3. Clipped Back Bangs: What was once a strategy to hide that awkward growing-out phase is now a major hair statement. Part your strands down the middle or off to the side and snap in some teardrop-shaped barrettes for an instant #GoodHairDay. (Photo via Gotham/Getty)
4.Double Buns: In tribute to the beloved Spice Girls, wearing double buns feels oh-so-right. To achieve the larger-than- life chignons our favorite ’90s babes were known for, grab a crimping iron and create texture wherever you lack it. (Photo via Jon Kopaloff/Getty)
5.Low Messy Bun: In a rush? Slip into a zig-zag stretch comb headband, pull your hair into a bun, and run out the door. (Photo via Peter White/Getty)
6. Sporty Braided Ponytail: Give this ’90s pony a modern twist by adding a fishtail braid. Finish it off with a jumbo scrunchie at the base for a throwback beauty look that’s sure to turn heads. (Photo via Donna Ward/Getty)
