9 '90s Hairstyles Every Cool Girl With A Scrunchie Rocked

The ‘90s were a glorious decade. Shows like Friends and Seinfeld graced our TV screens, N'Sync and The Backstreet Boys fought for our hearts, and America Online gave everyone the chance to connect to the Internet (via dial-up, of course). This was also the time of some interesting style choices: flannel everything, chokers galore, and high-waisted jeans. And when it came to beauty there were iconic ‘90s hairstyles all the teenage girls demanded when they went to the salon.

From Sarah Michelle Gellar to Britney Spears to, of course, Jennifer Aniston, superstars were wearing some pretty cool hairdos in the '90s, and obviously every '90s girl wanted to emulate them. Some of these iconic looks were totally adorable and some were, well, questionable. But regardless of what we think of them now, we can't deny that they were all the rage back then.

For any '90s girl who spent hours styling her hair on the weekends, or went to the hairdresser to get an up-do for the prom, looking through these styles will be a complete blast from the past. You'll be in awe over the hairdos you used to rock and maybe secretly, wish they would come back in style again.

This must have given us all a terrible headache.



Every decade has at least one "what the hell were they thinking" trend — and crimping was the '90s'.
