The Only ’90s Prom Hair References You Need

1990s inspo has affected all aspects of our style, and prom is no exception. From pin curl updos to claw clips, ’90s prom hair ruled then and is as on-trend now. But the best part is, these looks are elevated, meaning there’s no Wet n’ Wild gel or stiff hairspray needed (ask your aunties about those refs, my little Gen Z’er). Here are the cutest ’90s prom hairstyles, making us want to pull a Josie Grossie and head back to high school pronto.

Pin Curl Updo

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B revived this ’90s prom staple and green lit the decade revival.

Butterfly Clips

Say what you will, but they really nailed this butterfly clips school dance style. Did you even go to prom in the ’90s without this crucial accessory?

Twist Again

Seen on prom queen Alicia Silverstone, a twisted half-up half-down style works just as well on Euphoria’s Maddie, 30 years later.

Curl Girl

Pin your ringlets high. Curls bring the drama to otherwise basic up-styles.

Money Pieces

All hail the ’90s money piece style, which flatters with minimal effort. Tie a ribbon around your locks to make the style even more prom.

Ribbon Round

Speaking of ribbons, dress up any scarf or handkerchief by tying it as a headband and sealing it with a bow.
