Fads from the past have been reemerging in droves. Flip flops came back over the summer, as did the slip dress and bucket hat. Chunky, face-framing highlights — which were big in the ’90s — are also hot right now. The nostalgic movement is still happening, too: Experts spilled the ’90s beauty trends that will be popular in 2021, and there are plenty of throwbacks to get excited about.
The retro looks extend far beyond bold highlights and mom jeans. As far as hair trends go, celebrity stylists predict cuts (including the mullet), updos, and colors that’ll remind you of the ’90s. Makeup artists also see a range of nostalgic beauty looks reemerging this year, like dark lipstick and cat-winged eyes. Basically, expect your social media feeds to look straight out of 1995 as the glam you saw on Beverly Hills, 90210 become a thing again.
