Before the second wave of butterfly clips, chokers, and scrunchies hit, it would have been considered a capital sin to look through your junior high school yearbook seeking any sort of fashion or beauty inspiration. But here you are 20-odd years later, attempting to recreate those chunky highlights you once thought were so cringeworthy. Indeed, '90s hair trends are in — like, pretty much all of them — and in case you don't have that yearbook handy, here are six celebrity looks to get the throwback juices flowing.
Between Selena Gomez's 2020 interpretation of The Rachel and the sudden resurgence of half-up double buns (looking at you, J. Lo), the current hair era is looking more '90s than even the '90s themselves. You've got Beyoncé bringing back her Destiny's Child streaks, Kendall Jenner and company constantly twisting their tresses into old-school claw clips, and don't even get started on the face-framing tendrils.
It's only a matter of time before we're breaking out the crimpers and flipping the ends of our bobs — oh wait, Kim Kardashian has already beaten us all to the punch. If you're prone to flashbacks of embarrassing pre-teen years, then look away now. Ahead, six celebrity-approved '90s hair trends.
