Throwback hairstyles?

Asked by blueberry_kid (5952points) September 15th, 2014

It’s spirit week at school and tomorrow is Throwback Tuesday which is kind of dumb in all honesty, why not Twin Tuesday or Tiki Tuesday . I was going to go for a 90’s hip-hop look, but i don’t know what to do for my hair. My mom wears her hair up all the time so she was no help, any ideas?

I’m honestly open to anything.

You want to go wild, how about a mullet? You’ll either get rave reviews or mocked forever. Or Flock of Seagulls.

Female gender, right? Here are a few of them (NSFW). Scrunchies were popular, too, right?

Look at some celebrity photos from that era. That should give you some ideas.

I remember doing some of these things with my hair. Or these. Some of the less permanent options are quite manageable.

Another vote for Flock of Seagulls.

90’s – google popular songs or groups of the 90’s and then look at what they wore and how they did their hair.

Girl groups – very popular was Salt n Pepa.

Most popular hair style was The Rachel, from Friends.

Hard to say because I don;t know what your hair is like now, and if you are willing to alter it. But don’t cut it, just die it yellow and red and frizz/tease it out so you look like Cyndi Lauper.

@zenvelo: Cyndi Lauper was 80’s. OP is looking for 90’s styles.

Flock of Seagulls was also 80s.

The side ponytail is probably gonna be the easiest if you have enough hair. Also crimping might work. A lot of the popular styles would require cutting your hair and such.
Back in the 90s I had a spiral perm on fairly long hair. I look back and still think I looked awesome! example
