Slick it back! Another 90s hairstyle we love

Every decade has its turn back in the limelight, and right now it's time for us to re-embrace the 90's and that means plenty of new hip hairdos.

90s chic

What did we learn from the 90s? Quite a few things, actually! We learned that hair accessories were hot, even the stretch comb and the infamous grip clip (which, we hasten to add, are back on the catwalks from New York to Milan now) and of course that grunge rocked and it still does. We also learned that sometimes the simplest things are the best. You know, the best things in life are free and all that.

What the editors say: We have to admit to having a soft spot for this slicked back slide do! So glad this classic 90's look is back in town!

Step by step

Remember the quiff style? That was all the rage in the 80s – then came the slicked back simple set up

Step 1 Separate

Gather your bangs. Whether you've actually got bangs or longer hair, simply gather the central locks and pull back from the forehead.

 

Step 2 Secure!

Secure the section with a clip.

 

Step 3 Volumize

If you want to give that iconic quiff a nod, you can simply gently tug out a little bit of hair to create a more bouffant impression. And, hey presto!

 

Top tip: Remember that whatever your look, shiny and healthy looking hair is of the moment. Embrace modern technology with the brand new L'Oreal's Professionel's Source Essentielle Daily shampoo. It has 80% natural origin ingredients, including dried acacia leaves and lovely aloe vera and it's just the thing. And, it's silicone free too, if you must know.
