Fashion and beauty seem to be cyclical in nature. Whatever was stylish at one point seems to always make its comeback. The problem is, we don't always want it to happen. The late 90s and early millennium were an interesting time to be alive. There were a lot of really low-cut pants with high-rise underwear, crop tops, and so many hair extensions.
One of the more notorious style choices we remember from that time period was the chunky highlights. Everyone from Christina to Kelly Clarkson was rocking the look. It was happening all over the place.
People would either start with a dark color of hair and then add very large bands of a completely different color all over their head.
Or they would have a light color of hair and go for big pieces of a contrasting color. Christina was a big fan of it, doing a lot of extreme lowlights. While Kelly had the opposite. Either way, it was pretty brutal, but we thought we were past it.
