You've probably noticed that a lot of 90s hairstyles are making a comeback and are trending this season. So why not try out a throwback style for one of the biggest nights of your life: prom night! Get inspired with these five ideas.
A touch of tiara
Everyone wants to be Prom Queen, and now you can feel like one with this hairstyle. The tiara was a very popular hair accessory in the 90s, made famous by punk rock princess Courtney Love. To pull off this look leave your hair a little messy and make sure you don't wear it with a dress that is too sophisticated, otherwise the overall style might appear a bit too ''done up.''
Modern crimped hair
Chances are your older sister has a crimper lying around the house somewhere from when she was younger (crimped hair was huge in the 90s!), so ask her if you can borrow it to create this look. Instead of crimping your whole head like people used to do, modernize the hairstyle by only crimping a few strands. Tie your hair back into a low ponytail. The crimped pieces will add texture to an otherwise classic style and give it a certain 'je ne sais quoi'.
Two stranded updo
Letting two strands of hair fall purposely in front of the face was an iconic look in the 90s: Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice from the Spice Girls would often rock the look on stage, Julia Stiles wore it in the movie 10 Things I Hate About You, and even Christina Aguilera was a fan of it. The style's been spotted on the SS16 runways, so you can be certain that if your prom updo has two face-framing strands, your hairstyle will be very trendy.
Bun with cornrows
Cornrows - and braids in general - are trending this season, so why not try out a different kind of hairstyle this prom with this bun with cornrows? Just keep in mind that you'll need a specialist's help to create this updo, as cornrows require a certain technique that only certain hairstylists and salons are skilled in. However one thing's for certain: if you do wear this look it'll definitely be unique and different from the traditional styles everyone else will have!
Double mini buns
We're sure you've seen Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande with mini buns hairstyles, a style that Gwen Stefani made everyone love and want to wear in the 90s. This version of the double buns style sits flatter against the head and has a bit more of a Star Wars vibe to them. They look best on hair that's short or lob length (mid-length), otherwise the buns could look too large or thick.
