6 Celeb-Approved Hairstyles Are Perf For Your Virtual Happy Hours

90’s Inspired Ponytail

Of all the ’90s hair trends making waves in 2021, the one that’s our fave is this one- smooth tresses with flipped-out ends. All you need to do is blow dry your hair, taking one section at a time until you reach the mid-lengths. Then, twist the brush up and away from your face creating flipped-out edges. The best part though? The side-swept bangs tucked behind the ear are perf to channel some extra retro-vibes.


Face-Framing Tendrils

TBH, these face-framing tendrils are all over our Instagram feed and we love how it screams ‘90s. If you really want to add a ’90s-inspired edge to your overall style, start by taking two front strands out to frame your face. You can either style your hair in a bun or a ponytail depending on your comfort and style preferences. Just part your hair down the middle and tie it up leaving an inch of hair from either side at the front. 


Timeless Sleek Updo

The slicked-back bun is a timeless hairstyle that always looks polished but it secretly requires little skill. Create that smooth finish with a finishing spray like this one. A little pomade like this one goes a long way to keep flyaways at bay and slick down those baby hair. Secure your pony with these comfortable yet cool hair ties. If you’re exacting, like us, use a hair gel for a sleek-AF finish, keeping those flyaways at bay. 


Statement-Making Claw Clip

Claw clips make for the easiest updos ever and this the one-step hairstyle we badly need right now. Thanks to celebs like Kendal Jenner for bringing the ’90s hair claws back into our lives. This effortlessly stylish updo just requires your mom’s hair claws from the ‘90s and is perfect for days when you’re having a bad hair day. Sweep your hair back into a twist and secure vertically with a claw clip. 


Messy Bun With Protruding Ends

We all are aware that slicked-back buns with tucked edges were all the rage over the past couple of years. But we’re totally obsessed with this new iteration of hair-tied up with loose protruding ends. It gives that look a relaxed, beautifully undone feel. If you’re looking for something more elevated, you can go for a face-framing half-up hairstyle. Isn’t it the perfect concoction of 90s style elements wrapped into one look?


Double The Fun

This hairdo is a stand our hairstyle and looks good especially on folks with short or shoulder-length hair. All you’ll need is a brush, bobby pins, and a lightweight wax or gel to keep your flyaways nice and smooth. Trust us when we say you’ll only need two to three minutes to perfect this look. Yes, it is that simple! This bun can easily be created with minimal effort and is oh-so-stylish.
