We’ve hit peak 90s!

They say in life, in order to move forward we have to let go of the past. However, we don’t think that works in the fashion and beauty world. You see, the past is what brings us forward in this industry. Some of our most favorite hair trends are inspired by looks that were hot many moons ago. With a bit of creativity, we find ways to breathe new life into old hairstyles and trends to make them feel a bit more modern. Below we’re highlighting three 90s hair trends that are currently in rotation today:



90s Hair Trends We’re Obsessed With

1. Crimp Hairstyles

Back then this style was worn super defined and sometimes with a bit of a stiff crunch to it. Today, with the advent of new hair technology and new products, you can achieve this look day with a softer finish. To recreate, prep hair with a heat protectant that also adds shine like Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray. Use a crimping tool to create your crimps and pull sections apart to spread them out to create a fuller and less defined look.

2. 90s Box Braids

From jumbo blonde braids, to jumbo braids with accessories, we are seeing many iterations of the look these days. As braided styles continue to reemerge, we can thank Black culture for introducing many to this look.

3. Streaks

In a world full of balayage and ombré looks, the 90s streak look is trying to have its moment…again! If you’re aiming to try this look out on your hair, we recommend not going for high contrast looks. Opt for highlights that are just a two shades lighter than your natural hair color. Keep your color from fading by washing your hair with a color-safe wash and care system like Love Beauty and Planet Blooming Color Murumuru Butter & Rose Shampoo and Conditioner.
