’90s party hairstyles that look just as good today
Christy Turlington’s chic updo
Nailing the off-duty model look, Christy Turlington looks picture-perfect with her medium brown hair in a side-parted updo.
Style tip: Add a statement hair accessory for a modern update.
Naomi Campbell’s curled under bob
Naomi knows the power of a perfect hairstyle and this curled under bob is our fave from her ’90s party style file.
Editor’s tip: Use a heat protecting spray to prep your hair before heat styling. We recommend spritzing TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist evenly over damp hair and combing through before blow-drying or using a hair straightener.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s effortless bob
Gwyneth Paltrow’s ’90s bob could be mistaken for the latest haircut trending on all our Pinterest boards.
The air-dried finish and curled ends give Gwyneth’s hair extra body and movement.
Mariah Carey’s half-up, half-down
Mariah Carey’s natural curls are like a trip down memory lane. With her enviable long hair styled in an effortless half-up, half-down style and thigh slit dress, we think this is the perfect head to toe look for the party season.
Sarah Jessica Parker’s straight and sleek layers
Straight and sleek styles are just as loved today as they were in the ’90s, and when it comes to going out hairstyles, they’re always top of the list.
Editor’s tip: Want to keep flyaways at bay? We suggest keeping the VO5 Flyaway Touch-Up Wand in your handbag or at your desk for emergencies.
Kate Moss’ side-swept style
Anyone else getting serious Kaia Gerber vibes from this side-parted style?
The key to this look is to part your hair down the side after washing and allow your hair to air-dry to achieve natural texture and movement. Team with a leather jacket for a ’90s grunge kid finish.
Jennifer Aniston’s butterfly updo
Butterfly clips were HUGE in the ’90s with stars like Jennifer Aniston and Kirsten Dunst often wearing theirs on the red carpet.
Style tip: Not keen on the butterflies? Get in on the ’90s trend with statement slides or snap clips.
Emma Bunton’s space buns
How can we not include the ’90s queen Emma Bunton? Her array of fun hairstyles including this braided space buns style are still the go-to look for plenty of party occasions – think festivals and beach parties.
Drew Barrymore’s flicked out bob
If you’re looking for ’90s hair inspiration, you can always turn to Drew Barrymore.
The brows and choker with the platinum blonde hair and flipped out ends are bringing up all kinds of teenage memories.
Jennifer Lopez’ low ponytail
While the popularity of the middle parting might be linked to the Kardashians today, the side parting is synonymous with the ’90s.
Stella McCartney’s beach waves
Lover of beach waves but want to give your tresses a ’90s makeover? Reach for your fave hair oil to give your tresses a glossy wet look sheen.
Editor’s tip: Get beach-worthy hair without stepping foot on the beach with the TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray. Spray evenly over damp or dry hair to create rough texture and tousled waves.
