15 Of The Most Important And Iconic Hair Styles We All Rocked In The 90s

- Page 1

There was a lot to worry about when you were a young kid in the 90s. Which boy band is the best? How will you save up enough money to get the rare beanie babies? And most importantly, how will you get your hair looking perfect?

There were a few techniques that we all used to style our hair in different ways. Some of them we borrowed from past generations, some have come back in recent years, but we liked to think we did it best.

Here are 15 of the most popular 90s hairstyles that will remind you just how bad it used to be.

1. Scrunchies EVERYWHERE

Whether they were loosely wrapped around the end of your braid or on the very tippy-top of your head, scrunchies were a staple in all of our lives.

2. Snap Clips

Did anyone else find these kind of annoying to put in? Sometimes it didn't feel great, but they did help hold back our bangs when we were growing them out!

3. Ponytails with beads on either end

You don't know true pain until one of these snaps while in your hair.

4. Hairagami - Updo Snap Styling Tool

This thing was always so simple looking in commercials, but nearly impossible to execute properly. You were supposed to twirl it up and it would hold your hair in it properly.

5. Butterfly Clips

You had to use a bunch of these at once if you were going to do it properly. Preferably at the end of some tight twists on the very top of your head.

6. Leather Barrettes

So many different styles you could get, all used to stab through your hair with a big spike that you would inevitably hurt yourself or someone else with by accident.

7. Banana Clips

These were brought forward from the 80s but were still HUGE in the 90s.

Everyone Just Found Out That Neopets Was Run By Scientologists And They Are Not Happy About It

When the internet started being used by kids all around the country, there was one site that we all needed to visit. Neopets was the most important website on the internet if you were between the ages of 10-13. It was every middle school kids most important obsession, other than their beanie babies, but somehow these virtual pets felt more real than our tangible toys. You would pick a creature, name it, feed it, play with it, and take it on adventures every single day. You would spin a wheel, helping you collect neopoints, and you could use those points


7 Times The Beanie Baby Craze Went Way Further Than Any Of Us Realized

How much of your money did you spend on Beanie Babies? Be honest. More than you'd like to admit right? As much as a lot of us loved our Beanie Babies, there was a limit. Sure, I put my favorites in plastic boxes to keep them from getting dust on them, and okay, of course I put on a tag protector, I'm not a monster. But if even that sounds excessive to you, then boy, are you unprepared for what's coming up. People put a lot of effort into their Beanie Baby collections in the 90s. I mean, we were


5 Fashion Items That Have Been Successfully Resurrected, And 5 We'd Rather Stay Dead

Fashion is one of those things that seems to have a cycle that everything follows, so the same things become popular every few years. It has been happening since the dawn of fashion really, but it's just a lot weirder when it's the stuff you grew up wearing. When you see a young kid rock the same style of outfit you wore when you were their age you suddenly feel like you've traveled through time. You'd expect for fashion to evolve over the years, but it honestly doesn't. It just spins in circles, occasionally scooping up some new additions or


Stirrup Pants Are Back In Style And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

We've all been there, the mall with our moms impatiently waiting to go to the toy section. She wants us to buy some new pants for school because we tore three holes in them last week. She says you have to try things on because you are growing too fast and she isn't sure what size you are, but honestly, there is nothing you want to do less than that. You rush through everything quickly, finding the size you need and then it isn't until years later when you look at the pictures of your childhood that you realize what
