Most Popular 90s Hairstyles
The 90s were a period when fashion trends and hair trends go hand in hand. There were so many new ways to style your hair, and not just for long hair! Pixie cuts became super popular again (also thanks to celebrities) and women were suddenly not afraid of chopping their hair short.
