Whether it’s Victoria Beckham, Princess Diana, or Britney Spears, our favourite ‘90s icons continue to inform the way we look. Thirty years on from the era that gave us F.R.I.E.N.D.S and the Spice Girls- oh, what a decade it was.
And today, we are going to talk about the return of one of the key hairstyling tricks from the ‘90s. Yep, the poker-straight hair trend is surging for 2022, and it has got so popular that we’re starting to forget what year it really is. While some of these looks have mostly stayed true to their roots, others have been brought back with a modern upgrade. Ahead, we’re taking you through a handful of ‘90s-inspired poker-straight hairstyles that are currently taking over our IG feeds.
Dua Lipa rocked gorgeous sleek glossy locks. She combined her hairstyle with a monochromatic makeup look that took it to extraordinary status. We love this simple sleek style, complete with a centre parting and slight slicked-back feel. The hairdo is perf to add an oomph to your overall look.
Addison’s expertly blow-dried bob looks set and yet remains soft, touchable and healthy-looking. The secret is in the products. Try setting your towel-dried hair with a setting lotion before your blow-dry. This hairstyle is perf to give off major cool-girl vibes, which is always the goal, right?
Kim Kardashian’s sleek style looks gorgeous alongside her subtle brown ombre pout – genius combo! The social media sensation opted for ironed-out tresses to show off her mind-blowing look: sultry sea nymph.
Bella Hadid always looks sleek and chic when wearing her hair poker straight. Bella’s uber-stylish hair sparkles just as much as her makeup look. The model’s centre-parted seventies style is so on-trend. Use a hair gel to keep your tresses frizz-free.
Bow down to the ultimate catwalk queen, Naomi, whose cheekbones, glossy hair and style give us endless goals. Miss Cambell fashions her hair into a timeless hairdo. Try a hair setting gel to keep flyaways at bay.
Recreate Lucy Hale’s look and pair a shiny, straight lip with a feline flick and a slick of nude lipstick. We are used to seeing Lucy with a more textured natural look but this super glossy, poker straight style steps it up a gear.
We adore Shay’s take on straight hair complete with face-framing tendrils and a half-up chic hairstyle. She has the shiniest hair in celeb-ville and styles her long beautiful tresses with a classic centre parting. Top marks.
JLo is making a big comeback in the beauty universe and we are watching her every move – and every hairstyle, including this half-up, half-down hairstyle done on poker-straight hair. Our style crush keeps her hair sleek and shiny, adding a little ‘90s flair with the half-up hairdo.
These hairstyles are guaranteed to score you tons of compliments!
