Tips and Tricks | Cosmetology School, Lee’s Summit, MONineties Hairstyle Nostalgia

The 90s called, and they want their hair back. There has been a long-overdue resurgence of 1990s hairstyles and accessories in recent years, from butterfly clips to chunky scrunchies. Our stylists at the student salon within the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, have the 411 on the latest trend, and they say the 90s are here to stay. Check out some of our favorite 90s-inspired hairstyles below!

Hailey Baldwin’s Braids

Hailey Baldwin’s side braids are giving us ultimate 90s vibes. Not only are they a cute and simple way to spice up your everyday look, but they create a flattering face-framing effect. If you want to try this style at home, our educators at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit suggest spritzing your hair with some texturizing spray and weaving in a colorful ribbon to create some contrast!

Dua Lipa’s Top Knot Fringe

Dua Lipa’s 90s-inspired top knot is a vintage staple. The sassy fringe edges add some length and help frame the face, while the pastel blue eyeshadow completes the entire look. Find some hairspray and a brush, because this style is all that and a bag of chips!

J. Lo’s Space Buns

Grab your Motorola flip phone and call your friends; it’s Jenny from the Block! J. Lo reveals her original take on the “space buns” phenomenon, one of the greatest festival trends from the 1990s. This subtle and feminine half-up half-down style is perfect for any occasion and is a playful way to add some vintage flair to your outfit. If you want to recreate this look at home, add some colorful scrunchies and match it with a bold eye or brown-toned lipstick to fulfill your 90s fantasy.

Ayesha Curry’s Bantu Knots

Although Bantu knots were highly popular in the 1990s, they have a long history, originating from the Zulu people in Southern Africa as a protective style for afro-textured hair. Ayesha Curry embraces this vintage style, catching everyone’s attention with her unique take on Bantu knots. Will these Bantu knots really ever go out of style? As if.
