If you wanna be my lover, you gotta help braid my hair…
Isn’t that how the song goes? Well it should!
Peppy music, discos, breakfast bars, jukebox machines – the ’90s were an era that many of us wish that we could time travel to. While we may not be able to reciprocate all the elements of that period in this day and age, we can certainly dip our toes in the fashion world of the decade with these fun and easy hairstyles.
When it comes to jaw-dropping ingenuity, nothing beats the criss-cross hair partition. While we love a great natural hairstyle, why not take it to the next level with the addition of some multi-coloured rubber bands at every intersection. This addition may seem like a small one, but trust us when we say that it will add a fun, light-hearted element to your look. Of course, nothing gives this hairstyle more finesse than a proper partition and with the African Pride Black Castor Miracle Hold & Cover Edges, you are sure to get just that. Better than any spray you’ve ever tried, this product is filled with the goodness of black castor oil and coconut oil which work in tandem to provide your curls with the strength and nourishment that it deserves while simultaneously slicking back the stubborn curls and temporarily covering your greys.
Basic bun getting you down? Girl, say no more! Armed with a few rubber bands, you can definitely take your style from a 10 to a 100 in a matter of minutes. Not only do the rubber bands add a touch of beauty to the bun but it also helps you achieve the “messy” bun look. The only thing that could throw a wrench in the works when it comes to this hairstyle is the knots that could pose a threat to your picture-perfect look. To take care of this issue, in a calm, non-hair pulling manner, we recommend Just for Me Natural Hair Milk Detangler. This wonder product is perfect for all hair textures and can get all those annoying knots untangled in a jiffy.
Remember those days when you couldn’t wait to get home so you could watch the latest episode of Mickey Mouse on the tele? Well, nothing says a day of self-care like doing things you enjoyed as a kid and what better way to complete that day than with a set of rubber banded Mickey Mouse buns that are sure to have you squealing like a kid.
Ladies, it’s time to unleash the ’90s spirit within you, and with the hairstyles mentioned above, you’ll definitely be thanking us in the near future.
