The 90’s Are Back!

When I was a little girl in the 90’s, I loved the styles that my mother put me in. Acid washed denim, bright crazy colors, and floral was all the rave. Fast forward to 2014 and when I heard that 90’s fashion was making a comeback I was a little disturbed. “Who in their right minds would want to look like that on purpose?!” I wondered to myself. Now I see the light. Dark, gloomy florals have been replaced by bright, effervescent colors. Crop tops and acid washed jeans have resurfaced with a cool vengeance. Below are my top three 90’s faves that have come back better.

1. Neon

I used to think neon colors were unnecessary. Like, did they have to be so bright??? Then I found this “Life Is A Beach” shirt at Forever 21 and was sold. I found a new niche when I added this Victoria’s Secret neon green bra under for an added effect.

2. Florals

I seriously had a dress just like this when I was a little girl. The pretty flowers on this dress makes this exceptionally cool. To make this not look like you’re about to take your 6th grade class picture, add a clutch and some neutral heels (in this case, my green Jessica Simpson heels I got for a steal at DSW) and you can go from grade school to the top of the class.

3. Crop Tops and Acid Washed Denim

Yeah, we both wore the same shirt to a party. No, it wasn’t planned. But who can say no to that gem of a top from online powerhouse ASOS for only $10! Add a pair of $20 H&M jeans (on my friend, a pink pair of Forever 21 jeans) and you are transported back in time right back to 1992. Oh, and for added effect, throw your hair in some pigtail buns and you’ll be set to take your spelling test (or if you were me at 7 years old, ready to write your bad behavior on the board 100 times).

Flexi Fabulousity

Hey again everyone! So this past week was the beginning of the Thanksgiving holiday: pies, turkeys, and relatives up in your business asking those questions that you hate; “So, when you gonna get married, girl?” “You think you should freeze your eggs, you know, just in case you feel like having kids later in life?” ß Yeah, those questions -__-

Thankfully, here’s an easy, breezy hairstyle that doesn’t take long at all and will have all those pesky old people complimenting you on at least one thing. The following are steps to achieve that perfect curl without using a lot of heat.

  1. You’re going to need the following items: a blowdryer, Eco-styler gel, and about 20 to 30 flexi rods, depending on the thickness of your hair. If you don’t know, flexi rods look like this:

3. Using one of the sections, make a medium-sized horizontal row. Generously apply gel to the row of hair. Using a small-toothed comb (aka a rat-tail comb), comb the gel through the hair.

4. Taking a small section of hair from the row, secure the end of your hair with one of the rods. In a twirling motion, twirl the rest of your hair onto the rod, leaving empty space at the top of the rod.

5. Take the top of the rod and bend it to stay in place. Continue with the rest of your head.

6. When done, either sit under a dryer or air dry until every last strand of hair is completely dry. My hair usually takes about 1.5 hours under the dryer, all night if I air dry.

7. Unravel the hair in the opposite direction of the way you first rodded the hair.

8. Separate and fluff to your desired look.

When everything is said and done, your hair should look like this:

So, what do you think? Did I do a good job? Are there other, easier ways to achieve this style? Would you guys like to see a video? Sound out in the comment section below!
