90s hairstyles are making a comeback. Fun and iconic, 90s hairstyles urge us to get creative with accessories, and do more than the effortless hairstyles we’ve become accustomed to. Hair accessories like claw clips and snap clips are gaining popularity and we all have the 90s to thank. Take a look at our favourite hairstyles from the cool girl decade for all hair lengths!

2. Claw Clips
Claw clips are so quintessentially 90s. The French twist held with a claw clip is a hairstyle I would wear on the regular in my pre-teen days and they’re making a big comeback.
3. Snap Hair Clips
Hair clips of all sorts were popular in the 90s and snap clips were a go-to accessory. A set of clips and barrettes will allow you to create a bunch of different 90s hairstyles.
4. Hair Straightener
Straight hair and flipped ends were highly loved in the 90s, which means hair straighteners were flying off the shelves. A ceramic flat iron will help you achieve the 90s looks of your dreams.
