1990s Hair Trend 2012

Call It a Comeback: The Return of '90s Waves

From cropped tops to geometric patterns and shapes, the minimalist somewhat moody fashions from the '90s popped up all over the Fall 2012 runways. And it seems this decade of grunge is influencing beauty, too. Tousled, softly spiraled waves have been spotted on the likes of Tyra Banks, Jennifer Lawrence, and Haley Reinhart in the past week alone. But this isn't the teased, ratted-out coiffure of the late '80s, which was often topped off with poufed mall bangs. This trend is all about tousled yet unrefined waves. It's a natural, effortless texture that requires little time to create.

To get your grunge on, spritz damp hair with a fixative, like Alterna Bamboo Boho Waves Tousled Texture Spray ($22). Finish by scrunching your strands with your fingers when blow-drying to create free-flowing curls. For extra wave, run a curling iron through random sections as needed.
