These '90s haircuts are back in style—and totally wearable
There's no denying it because it's obvious: thinner brows, low-slung jeans, blocky strands—the '90s are back! At least when it comes to the current beauty, fashion, and hairstyle trends.

Good news first: the hairstyles are wearable and there is at least one suitable hairstyle for every hair length (even if short haircuts predominate). So it’s absolutely worth reading for everyone:n. Here are the most popular 90s haircuts (including a modern update) that are back in fashion and can be seen everywhere.
The boy band-style bob is a unisex haircut, as the name suggests. Our favorite boys from the 90s, including Nick Carter, were the inspiration for the casual haircut. And he was, right, a member of the boy band Backstreet Boys. The hairdo is a short bob where the frontmost strands that frame the face are slightly longer. The hair reaches about the middle of the ears or ends at the level of the cheekbones. With this hairstyle, it is important not to use sticky styling products, because the hair should fall casually forward into the face. And if the hair bothers you, it's long enough to be tucked behind your ears. A middle parting is also important for the boy band Bob.
The “Friends” reunion last year catapulted the Rachel haircut straight back to the top of the trend. As a reminder, the cut became famous because Jennifer Aniston wore it as Rachel in the 90s cult series Friends. Everyone wanted hair like Jennifer or like Rachel. sorry, want! Because the haircut is back in a modern version. The basis: steps, and lots of them please. These make the hair look light and voluminous at the same time. The way the layers are cut and the length of the layers connects the Rachel Cut of the '90s with today's. But what has changed is the styling. The hair is no longer styled ultra-straight, but in big waves, and the tips are no longer turned inwards, but outwards. How does this work best? Sure, with a round brush and a hair dryer or a warm air round brush.
It is loose, airy, and can be combined with any hair length: the fringed pony. The motto: Courage to leave gaps! A few individual strands are enough to complete the fringed look. And it's obvious, but we're happy to say it again: A few fringes are a lot less work than a full fringe. As a rule, the fringed version is long, which is why it is particularly suitable for long hair, as the result looks particularly harmonious in the end.
Yes, the bob and pixie were the hairstyle trends par excellence in the 90s - including the straight cut bob, now known as the blunt bob and hip again. Blunt means "blunt". To create this look, the hair is cut without layers and stays in one length. The hair length itself can vary, from very short to a long bob, anything is possible.
Lady Diana's iconic haircut returns. Tousled tips and layers that appear unwanted at first glance. The modern touch is achieved by adding volume to the hair with the help of side parting and a few layers. It doesn't matter where the crown is or how it falls. The hairstyle gently caresses the face, making it look soft and accentuating the cheekbones - you can't get more out of a hairstyle. Texturizing sprays are great for emphasizing the undone look haircut.
This is where 50% hairstyling and 50% cut meet. Important: The hair should be at least bob-length and a fringe is rather impractical for this hairstyle. Because: Only two loose strands should fall around the face - like tendrils. The rest of the hair is pulled away from the face in a bun and/or ponytail, also with gel. The focus is solely on the Tendrils.

Today, actress Florence Pugh, among others, relies on the bixie. The perfect mix of a casual and classic haircut. So we can well understand why the stars love this hairstyle.
