Between the rise of empowered female artists, the rebellious grunge movement, and a surging interest in R&B and hip-hop, the 90s emerged as a decade packed with diverse style inspiration that has continued to inform modern creative fields. In fact, if we had Instagram in the 90s, it wouldn’t look that much different than our present-day feed.

90s trends made a roaring comeback last year, both in fashion and accessories and in makeup and hairstyles. During a time where everything felt mad and unpredictable, chasing nostalgia offered a sense of stability. Fast forward a year, and it’s evident: 90s trends have taken deep roots. Celebrities and influencers alike are choosing popular 90s hairstyles like face-framing braids, space buns and half-up half-down to style their hair. Hair accessories like bandanas and wide headbands are also signs that the decade is back in fashion. An upgraded version of the face-framing braids, face-framing bubble braids is also massively popular.
