The nineties are back in fashion's good books, with it-girls stylishly re-adapting all the retro fashion and beauty trends from over a quarter of a century ago. But, when it comes to choosing between a high ponytail or a grunge style, we can't make up our minds!
The deliberately-dishevelled grunge look
Barely-there waves can be spotted in this high-volume, lightly tousled hairstyle. The deliberately-disheveled grunge effect, straight out of the nineties, has a rebellious yet soft, even graceful, appeal.
To shake up the extreme femininity of a little white lace dress, or to really own a rock star style, the deliberately-disheveled look is the ideal solution. It looks great on all styles and colors, whether you have a short bob, mid-length or long hair.
The editors say
We particularly love this style when it's paired with a discreet little braid underneath, a detail that acts as a nod to 1990's eccentricity. For an everyday look without damaging you hair, opt for a texturizing powder rather than backcombing the hair yourself.
The high ponytail
On long or extra-long hair, the ponytail can go high. Really high, even. Whether it grazes the top of your head or flicks out proudly at the back, the graphic and feminine effect is a sure and chic winner.
While the classic ponytail is a basic style, its high-up cousin is far more sophisticated. It looks just as great with a suit, for a professional, on-trend silhouette, as it does with a bold, daring look to set the dance floor on fire.
The editors say
To draw attention to your nineties inspiration, what about crimping the lengths to give them wild volume? However, if you'd rather modernize it, opt for a wet-look effect gel to slick down your hair at the front. Even better: do both at the same time, for a really fashion-forward look!
