All the best hair and beauty trends of the 90s that have taken a leap into the 21st century.
As one of the most defining decades of our lives, with some of the world’s much-loved TV shows, starlets, fashion designers and bands taking centre stage, it’s no surprise that we love taking a trip back down memory lane.
So let’s take a look at some of the leading 90s beauty trends currently making a comeback:
Deep vampy lippy
Back in the day, dark velvety wine lips and vampy tints were everywhere, and if this years’ Grammys Awards were anything to go by, it seems this 90s trend is well and truly back for 2014. Lorde made the biggest impact at the event rocking super smooth pale skin and a contrasting dramatic plum hue on her lips.
Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence are currently making a style statement with their edgy cropped ‘dos, but back in the 90s this hairstyle was in its element thanks to the likes of Demi Moore (Ghost), Kate Moss and Winona Ryder. It’s a cut that requires guts, but the cropped style is far less maintenance and a fantastic way to show off your facial features.
Deep side parting
Whether rocking the grungy tousled look or a sleek and sophisticated cascade of waves and curls, celebrities can be found everywhere in 2014 rocking the deep side parting. This 90s hair trend screams effortless chic, and is the perfect way to reinvent your style for one night only – providing lots of luscious volume.
Back in the 90s girls were trampling over each other just to get their hands on the special edition Spice Girls body spray cans released by body spray giant, Impulse. Throughout the noughties however we swapped out body spray obsession with celebrity perfumes (Curious by Britney Spears, anyone?). Fast forward to 2014 and it seems the body spray is back in business, thanks especially to lusted-after designer, Tom Ford who is launching his Neroli Portofine scent in an ‘all over body spray’.
Who didn’t stock up on these magic hair wands in the hope of transforming your style in a simple slick of a brush? Well, even though the effects were never as good as hoped, hair mascara was a popular beauty favourite in the 90s, and today hair chalk has taken the reigns to bring rainbow coloured highlights to our manes in the 21st century.
