News flash: The side flip is back

January 19, 2013

You guys. Flipped hair is back, and I am so happy because I didn’t know it ever actually went away. If my hair were still long, I’d definitely still be flipping it. But this old new trend is serendipitous because I just decided to grow my hair out. (I don’t have time to style it, and it’s too short for a ponytail, so it’s time for long hair again. Read: I’m a mom. There’s nothing I can do to stop this from happening.) The inspirational style icons of my youth – the female casts of 90210Saved by the Bell, and Clueless – are serving up a new generation a whole lotta awesome. (Did they ever really go out of style?) I, for one, am happy to see it. This is one trend I will be trying on. But I guess we’re not supposed to use as much hairspray now.

P.S. I didn’t realize how much I love 1990s promotional headshots. Amazing.
