Growing up, every generation has their own styles that seemed to take over. However, in the 90s, everything seemed to jump into hyper-drive, probably because of all of the media that was targeting the young people in the country.
It seemed like the 90s had about 8,000 different trends that popped up, but it was the hairstyles that really were the most important part. You can wear whatever clothes you wanted, but if your hair wasn't perfect then what was the point?
These 20 hairstyles were the most iconic of their time, and we all had them at one point or another. If we didn't, then someone in our classes absolutely did.
1. The mushroom cut was the most definitive look of the decade
2. But sometimes they would split the hair right down the middle, because that's obviously cooler than it being straight across
3. Baby Spice helped bring pigtails to a new level of cool
4. Or if that wasn't your thing you could have it shoulder length and flipped out, just like the Olsens
5. Basically all of the hairstyles in the 90s for guys seemed to involve some form of mushroom cut, but this one was for those who wanted to use excessive hair gel so that their head looked wet at all times
6. Or if you wanted to go all out, spiking up your frosted tips was also an option
7. Ladies, you know that you had a random collection of gems that you would clip throughout your hair
8. Sometimes you would even work them into some crimped pieces
9. Seriously, we can't express enough how frosted those tips were...
10. Hair got really tall in the 90s
11. Whether it was the cut, or because we all had scrunchies holding our hair up to dangerous heights
And that's just the tip of the iceberg...
12. Mariah's curls were pretty iconic, making perms the most desirable style
13. Of course you can't catalog 90s hairstyles properly without discussing 'The Rachel.' Even though Jennifer Anniston herself hated the look, it swept the nation like crazy
14. Twisty pieces pulled back into butterfly clips were an absolute essential - bonus points if you pulled out some small strands right up front!
15. George Clooney's Caesar-style haircut really made an impact (whether we wanted it to or not)
16. Seriously though, gel sales went through the roof
17. The importance of the feathered bang can not be overstated. It was everything
18. Geri Halliwell had an epic and magical style where the front of her hair was a different color than the rest and it was iconic and wonderful
19. She was our princess, and her hair was amazing
20. And of course, whatever Gwen Stefani was doing at the moment
It's hard to believe that it has been 21 years since we last got to enjoy something that was made by Chris Farley. He was such a big part of pop-culture, with his larger-than-life personality and his impeccable comedic timing, that his loss is still felt today. Many people talk about his movies, his time on Saturday Night Live, but his friends knew him as so much more than the characters he played. Adam Sandler was on SNL at the same time as Farley, and they became good friends. While Sandler has obviously gone on to have quite an impressive
After Shaun Weiss' arrest in August left everyone worried about the former child star, the actor was forced to re-evaluate his choices. His mugshot showed a gaunt, sickly, and unrecognizable man, but Weiss believed this was his "rock bottom" and hoped to come back from it stronger than ever. In a statement released to his Facebook page after the arrest, Weiss revealed that he realized he was in "danger." Oroville Police Department"At this time, in an effort to break free from the self destructive patterns of behavior and drug abuse that have landed me at rock bottom, (to be
Listen, I know fashion is cyclical. I know that things are going to go in and out of style, but here's the thing, not everything should. Fashion is also highly subjective. We all have our own opinions, but when the fashion magazines start telling us "this is what is in style" we all second guess our choices. Now, these experts are telling us to dust off our old flared jeans and honestly, I don't understand why. I know that flared jeans were huge in the disco-era, and I know this because when they came back in the late 90s and
If there was one product that you had to pick that would best represent what it was like to be a preteen in the 90s, I think a lot of us girls would agree that Lip Smackers would be the best choice. These little tubes of oftentimes glittered, scented, colorful lip-balm made us all feel like the fanciest of ladies, totally ready to grab our purses and do whatever it is that our moms did when they weren't paying attention to us. You had so many different choices too. You'd have a classic berry scented red Lip Smacker, you'd have
