90s Tendrils Hairstyles Are Making a Comeback

The 90s called!

90s tendrils hair is making a comeback and we couldn’t be more excited. Of all the trends having a resurgence, this might be one of our favorites. This face-framing hairstyle is flattering on all face shapes and works on a range of hair types and textures.

One of the great things about this trend is how easy it is to recreate. Gone are the days when we have the patience or energy to spend a long time wrestling with our strands to create an intricate style. This look is quick, easy, and super trendy.

Read on to get inspired by 5 ways to wear tendrils hair:

1. Classic Tendrils Hair

This is a classic way to recreate this style.

This classic iteration of this 90s style is one of our favorite ways to wear the look. To recreate this look, use a comb to create a center part and gather your hair back into a mid-height bun. Gently tug at the front of the style to pull two strands loose.

If you’re working with day 2 or 3 hair, refresh your strands with Suave Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo before you style.

2. Half Up

Pull half your hair up and leave the tendrils out.

Consider a more modern version of this style by gathering half your hair up into a bun. Pull those two strands out at the front for that 90s touch!

Finish the look with a mist of Nexxus Weightless Style Ultra Light Hair Spray to keep it in place. Hold the can of hairspray 8-10 inches away from your head and mist it over the finished style for a perfectly light hold that doesn’t feel crunchy.

3. Curly

We consider this a blended 80s, 90s mashup.[ath_single_product product_id="15702"]

Use Dove Curls Defining Mousse to give your curls some extra definition. Gather your curls up into a half-up style and pull two curls out to frame your face. This style is easy and undone and requires none of the pressure to have every hair perfectly in place.

4. Braided

Use your braids to get in on the tendrils hair look.

Recreate this style with your braids by pulling two braids out of a classic low ponytail. The great thing about recreating this look with braids is that you’re guaranteed two even pieces framing your face by pulling a braid out on each side.

5. Curtain-Inspired

This style sits on the edge of the curtain bangs trend.

Blend two trending hairstyles with this curtains-tendrils hybrid style. Depending on how you style those front pieces, you can take the style in a different direction. Style them to the sides for more of a tendrils style or in more of a swooped motion for a curtain bangs style.
