Few shows capture 1990s teenage angst better than “My So Called Life.” The hair, the clothing, the attitudes, everything was very much a product of its time. There’s lots of ninety’s influence in today’s fashion, and lots to love from this ground-breaking series. Rayanne’s clip braids and messy updos, Angela’s Deep red hue and classic lob, and Jordan Catalano’s grungy long cut provide plenty of possibilities.

When I stumbled across this image it reminded me of a Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid. The cartoon has many fascinating qualities, elements of magic, underwater scenery, and mesmerizing shots of long, floating mermaid hair. For Ariel’s mane, I was obsessed. It was bright red, long, tangle-less, and in ceaseless flowing motion. The long crimped hair pictured above combines Ariel’s vibrant color and luxurious length with seaweed texture and a swooped front that adds tumbling motion. Read on for steps to getting sea-inspired style. –– Laura Martin

These styles combine crimped texture with classic shapes for the perfect blend of the old and the new. The resulting styles are equal parts soft and dramatic, both avant garde and wearable. Crimped texture is making a comeback, giving hair a low-sheen fluffiness that provides a floaty feather-like feeling. The ruffled hair is easy to pin, holds long-lasting volume, and can be effortlessly sculpted and swept into a variety of shapes.

Volume on top with sleek sides is a flattering look that elongates the face and draws attention up to the eyes. We often credit the mohawk for creating this type of proportional balance, but Lucille Ball was wearing the look long before the punk movement adopted it as their signature haircut. And after being in and out of fashion over the past decades, contemporary “mohawk” shapes now have more in common with the coifed looks of the fifties than the rebellious styles of the seventies. High, curly shapes with sleek sides are back, and whatever we call  them, they invoke both rock inspired rebellion and classic femininity.
