A nod to the '90s

From denim skirts and bomber jackets, to velvet chokers and beyond, the fashion world seems to love rehashing the '90s. Keeping up with the theme of reviving old styles, blunt blobs and modern takes on the beehive are on their way.

The bobs are back in town.
Blunt, classic, and universally flattering, the bob’s sharp edges can frame almost any face shape. The secret to making this old cut look modern? Finding the best length to highlight your features. After analyzing your face structure, a professional stylist can help you find the best cut for you and will even add details to make yours look unique. To keep it looking sharp and sleek at home, try Redken Align 12 protective smoothing lotion before blow-drying to keep wayward strands under control.

…and they brought the buzz:
'90s girls, dust off your Bump-its: the beehive back in town. Yup, you heard us right, big is back. And though we’re sure that you can still craft one with hairspray and a teasing comb, creating lift and volume is much easier with a full foundation. Start with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner to set the stage for easy teasing. Redken High Rise Shampoo and Conditioner safely supports and expands plumped strands, and even gives hair the extra body it needs to take your style to the top. Keep your strands standing sky-high with a root-boosting product before blow-drying and finish with your favorite volumizing hairspray, like Kenra Volume Spray 25.

Accessories, if you please

From barrettes and headbands to hair scarves and bows, a good accessory can instantly amplify any hairstyle. Here’s what’s on the horizon.

Hair jewelry
In the always-desirable collaboration of both fashion and function, bejeweled barrettes and hair pins are adorning hairstyles everywhere. From tying outfits together to topping off buns, these versatile accessories can give your look some flair.

Thanks to a certain Duchess overseas, headbands are back in a big way this year. Formerly associated as the schoolgirl’s staple piece, these underrated accessories are now having their moment in the grown-up world, too. For casual ensembles, try something thin with a bow, or take a page from the celebrities with something thick, bold and adorned.

Hair scarves
Lazy girls of the world, rejoice! Hair scarves are here make day-two hair 'chic.' These scarves do it all. Dark roots? No problem. Flyaways? As if. Bad hair day? Hair scarves have got you covered. Maximize your traveler-inspired, 'free-spirit' vibes and pair with a bohemian ensemble—and some dry shampoo like DESIGNLINE Dry Shampoo for the perfectly put-together next-day hairstyle.

Blurred hues

If you’ve been toying with the idea of trying pastel hair for awhile, we have good news: there’s still time go for it! This trend is here to stay (at least through the year). Be on the lookout for Baby Blue, Living Coral (check out the example to the left, created by Signature Style stylist, Dawn), and Dusty Lilac hues on Insta’ feeds everywhere. Each can be customized for bold, brazen looks or subtle peeks of color. Your stylist can help you find the right option for you.

Pro tip: keep your pigment looking fresh with professional color-care shampoo and conditioner to slow your new color's fading. Need a new duo? Give Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner a try.
