How to Create a Retro 90s Blowout

Don't worry, the 90s aren't going anywhere.

Trends from the 90s are in full force, so we aren’t surprised this blowout is making a comeback. Since effortless waves were so popular for a long time (don’t worry they still are) it’s refreshing to see such a glamorous style gain lots of popularity again.

We’ve seen so many celebrities and influencers try out this style, but we’ve seen even more TikToks replicating the look, which just goes to show how easy you can achieve this style too.

Opt for a 90s blowout with tons of movement.

We’re amping up the volume with this exciting style. Whether you need a style for a fancy event or want to try something new for a night out with friends, the 90s blowout is perfect for any occasion.

Step 1: Shampoo and condition your hair.

This may seem obvious, but first, you’ll want to start off with freshly washed hair. To make sure you get as much volume as possible in your look, opt for a set that caters to that. We love Suave Up The Volume Shampoo and Conditioner because it gives your strands that boost you’re looking for while keeping them strong and soft, thanks to the Amino Acid complex in the formula.

2. Prep your strands for a 90s blowout.

When it comes to blowdrying your strands, you’ll want to prep with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray first and then follow with Nexxus Weightless Style Smooth & Full Blow Dry Balm.

The heat tamer spray will help protect your hair from any unnecessary heat damage. The blow-dry balm is super important when creating the 90s blowout style because this will smooth strands while adding volume and shine to your dried hair. The blend of body-boosting flexible polymers, fiber, and polishing actives is what helps you achieve a sleek, frizz-free look. Plus, this product also adds a workable grip to the style to help you achieve a blowout easier.

You’ll want to dry your hair 70% of the way, using a concentrated nozzle.

3. Use a round brush for the 90s blowout.

Once your hair is 70% dry, use a round brush and dry your hair in sections while brushing through.

Start right at the root, using the brush to lift the hair before brushing through the rest of the section. Concentrating the blowdryer nozzle at the root for a few seconds first will create that desired 90s blowout look you’re going for.

When drying the rest of your hair, make sure to gently twist the brush while going through your hair to create a loosely curled look.

4. Apply the rollers to dry hair.

Right after the section of hair is fully dry, but still warm use large or jumbo-sized rollers. This will lock in the volume you want in a 90s blowout.  The width of rollers you use is dependent based on the length of your hair and how much of a curl you want. However, the key is wrapping your hair around them while the section is still warm.

Start at the end of your hair and roll the section up, including the root in the roller. Repeat this with every section of hair until all of it is completely dried and set in rollers.

Next, leave the rollers on for 10-15 minutes and then begin removing them. Once your hair is out of the rollers, play around with it and brush it out depending on how much of a curl you want.

5. Lock in your 90s blowout.

Alright, so you have that supermodel-worthy 90s blowout, it’s time to lock it in. Using a lightweight hair spray, like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Level 2 Hold Curl Hair Spray. This spray will help hold your style in place without giving you that crunchy feeling. Plus, it also protects your hair from humidity.
