The 90s don’t necessarily feel that long ago for most of us, but believe it or not; it's been over 20 years since that decade wrapped. While most of us remember the styles, the boy bands, the butterfly clips, and the spaghetti strap tops from first-hand experience, we could use some inspiration when modernizing the hairstyles for today’s trends. With nostalgia at every turn, we’ve got a few 90s-inspired hairstyles that you can easily create this holiday season.
