As the ’90’s grunge trend continues to resurface and die out again, one thing that will always remain relevant is our love for all of the classic teen angst movies that the decade brought us. And with Halloween right around the corner, we’ve decided to round up some of the best teen angst movies’ hairstyles to serve as inspo for your Halloween costume or even just your everyday lewk. From Kat Stratford to Laney Boggs, keep reading to see the best teen angst movie hair looks seen on some of your favorite rebellious adolescents.

The Breakfast Club

The two female Breakfast Club members made Saturday detention look super chic. Between Claire Standish’s wispy red locks and Allison Reynold’s thick brown mop and shaggy bangs.

Heathers

The bigger the hair the more popular the girl must have been the name of the game in the movie Heathers as Veronica and all three of the Heathers each rocked super voluminous locks.

Girl Interrupted

Lisa’s short, jagged blonde bangs were so wrong that they were right in Girl Interrupted.

Daria

While Daria is the only TV series on our list, we couldn’t talk about teen angst without including the cynical teen. While she may not have been the most popular teen at Lawndale High, her thick auburn mane (and sarcastic personality) makes her a star in our eyes.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Although Ferris Bueller’s Day Off came out in the late ’80’s, Ferris taught us an important life lesson in that if you’re going to skip school then wearing a black beret is the perfect way to go incognito.

Empire Records

The staff at Empire Records is all about selling records without becoming a sell-out, well, one could never become a sell-out with a classic looking mane like Corey Mason’s long brunette locks and center part.

Edward Scissorhands

While Edward created many works of art with his scissorhands, the best look of the movie was Edward’s own wild mane.

10 Things I Hate About You

There was nothing to hate about Kat Stratford’s gelled, wet waves held up by a banana clip. The two pieces of hair that were placed in front of her face, however, made the look a ’90’s classic.

She’s All That

Laney Bogg’s makeover in She’s All That is proof that a little chop never hurt nobody. Zack Siler’s sister took Laney’s hair from a shabby, heavy mane to a layered flirty lewk.

Drive Me Crazy 

Nicole may not have won Brad’s affection but she definitely won the best tressed award in our book. Drive Me Crazy is chock-full of the best styles of all teen angst movie hair looks.
