Glunge vs. Grunge

Are you more of a glunge or grunge girl? We're here to help you channel your inner 90s chick and find out!

Glunge

The hairstyle: Glunge, or 'glamourous grunge' is a luxurious take on 90s grunge style and was first spotted in 2011. Like many other modern takes on classic 90s looks, glunge is making a big comeback in 2016.

The style: The overall look is meant to appear disheveled, however what sets glunge apart from grunge is that the shine is pumped up with shine serum to look more polished. One major key to achieving glunge hair is to have different contrasting textures throughout – apply a texturizing spray to your locks and then create a few different sized loose curls that all turn in different directions. Finish everything off with a shine serum or pomade and a dark lip for ultimate sophistication.

What the editors say: If you've always been interested in the grunge look but are seeking out a bit more elegance, then glunge is for you – it's a great relaxed, bold style that will get everyone asking you what your secret is to such awesome hair.

Grunge

The hairstyle: 90s grunge is a messy, just got out bed look. It's been a very popular style as of late, even topping Tumblr's Most Reblogged Fashion Trends for 2015 and seen on the Spring Summer 2016 runways.

The style: Grunge hair is a cross between indie, hipster and rocker chic and is a great look for second (or even third!) day hair. It can be left down as is, or styled into a few updos - think messy low ponytails (the more undone the better) and low pigtails. Add a beanie to complete your look and achieve ultimate 90s throwback status.

What the editors say: If you're one that prefers the classics then go for grunge. It's a low-maintenance style that instantly makes you look cool.
