You Won't Believe The 90's Hair Trends Making a Comeback

Chunky Highlights

Kylie Jenner’s new hairstyle is straight out of the ‘90s. During lockdown the billionaire make-up mogul was spotted sporting chunky blonde highlights. Despite only being born in 1997 (F*ck that makes us feel old) Kylie is owning those honey streaks. What makes the 2020 version different from the 90’s version of this trend, is that the highlights are placed by the hairline, making it frame the face. If Kylie’s doing it… It’s safe to say the trend has arrived.

These face-framing tendrils are having a moment… We’ve seen the liked of Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa and Rihanna sporting them online. Luckily the days of the crispy, pin-straight strands are behind us, with today’s version a lot softer, less greasy and usually much less hair-sprayed.

Mini buns

The mini bun is making a resurgence on Instagram. Whether you rock two, three, four, or more, the 90’s mini buns are a vibe and can be worn half-up half down or placed all over your head. The style began resurfacing a few years ago, on Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne and Hailey Beiber.

Flipped Ends

The flipped ended look that gives you extra bounce, is all over YouTube. The look which started popping up Bella Hadid and Zendaya, is both 60’s and 90’s inspired. All you need is a flat iron or curling iron and a flick of the wrist, to create this stand out look.

Bows are making a comeback. Love it or hate it, we’re set to see the rise in hair decorate with bows. They can be worn small or huge, or simply a DIY job with some ribbon. The 90’s classic adds a polished finishing touch to both your hairstyles and outfits.

Crimped Hair

Tik:Tok is behind this 90’s hair revival. Crimped hair is back and Gen Z is totally behind it. The wavy hairstyle is racking up the views on TikTok with teenagers posting hair tutorials. The only downside is, we feel like total dinosaurs with many of the younger viewers bewildered at to what the hair tool is called and where they can buy it.

Snap Clips

The latest throwback hair accessory, is hitting us with primary school nostalgia. The look which is exploding on Instagram, never disappeared completely but has instead been worn by children. Now, influencers are bringing the trend back, typically wearing them on either side of a very 90’s centre part. An alternative way to style, is to position the snap clips on one side of the part.
