90s hair dos and donts

If you live ANYWHERE, you’ve probably noticed that 90s fashion has made a major comeback. Just a couple weeks ago, I was walking in the East Village behind a group of four pre-teen girls and as Cher Fraser would say, “I totally paused.” They wore Tommy Hilfiger and Guess jeans, crop tops, small backpacks (probably filled with feather pens and lip smackers, I imagined), chokers, Dr. Marten boots, and soft fluffy manes held back in scrunchies. I could not believe my eyes.

When it comes to hair trends and fashion, let’s be honest with ourselves, we repeat history all. the. time. but I think every era deserves a set of guidelines, especially when it comes to our manes! So before we get too carried away with all these 90s comebacks, here’s a list of 90s-inspired hair do’s and don’ts.

DO: Accessorize your mane with a headband or clip.

Melissa Joan Hart 90s Hair
