When you look at the Fall 2016 runways — the place countless trends are born — you may feel nostalgic for your middle-school days. Styles from the '90s such as Topsy Turvy ponytails, teased '80s hair, and girlish pigtails are making a comeback.
These old-school trends were reimagined in modern ways. For instance, Preen made us want to embrace scarf headbands, while Prabal Gurung sent his models down the runway with inverted ponytails (re: the Topsy Tail). And Michael Kors showed us pigtails that you'll want to wear IRL.
"As always, everything old is new," said Kerastase consulting hairstylist Matt Fugate. "Everything gets done again in time, but with a new modern-day twist. This is mainly due to social media and the access that people have to get themselves out there. You can play with so many looks from so many eras. My best advice is to have fun with it. Add your own spin on the trends!"
To help you do that, Matt broke down simple steps to take to re-create some of your favorite throwback styles with a modern twist.
