Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share HAIR trends from the past decade!

Here's a pic from the 90's which is way more than a decade, but had to share. I had a perm and dyed blond hair. I wish Icould find my other picture where it's not pulled back in a barrette and I'm fashioning the guitarist female in the group Heart 😁

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share HAIR trends from the past decade!

@TeamBIC Not a trend per se, but the re-introduction of dry shampoo many years ago was a real game changer for me...and of course flat irons!

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share HAIR trends from the past decade!

@greeneyedgirl107 oh my goodness.  You are sooooo right.  The flat iron.   When first introduced, I was so excited. 

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share HAIR trends from the past decade!

I remember braids were in and hair accessories.  I always had my hair done in twists, braids and updos with flowers or pins in my hair.

 

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share HAIR trends from the past decade!

For someone who doesn't like their hair mine sure has gone on a journey! It used to be super greasy, and so so thick I couldn't get all the shampoo and conditioner out, jr. high/high school years. Close to 15 years ago...oh my gosh so long ago, I started dying  my hair "weird colors" as people liked to call it. Lol guess whose all doing that now? I was ahead of that trend in our area haha. Many years back I cut it all off into a little pixie. Last year maybe I buzzed it all off! I was hoping it would go back curly...it didn't. I now keep it in a mow hawk shape I'm not sure the actual term. My sides are buzzed but the hair on top stays. Eventually I want to bleach that hair. Remember  12 years or so ago when the trend was blonde on top, and dark brown underneath? I did that too and liked it. My hair has been every color but my dream color white/silver. Now I wear wigs though haha.

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

Gorge @SlimNShady!! This nude shade is perfect on you. And your laaaashes! 😍

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

thanks so much ❤️

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

Everybody wearing teddy from MAC was the beginning of the nude lipstick trend and I still love it! 

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

@TeamBIC I don't have many fond memories of a lot of 90s lips.  I never cared for the browns nor mattes.  And I could never get behind the dark pink lip liner with the light pink lip, or the blackish-brownish lip liner with a light pink or clear lip.  But oddly enough, some of my fave lip shades were from the 90s.  Sally Hansen Ice Platinum - since the 90s are back I've e-mailed them a couple times to bring it back, but they won't.  Bath & Body Works Jasper lip gloss.  A lovely bronze-y color that totally worked for me.  Oh, I went through many of those!  And an Origins lipstick that's hard to describe, and I can't for the life of me remember the name of.

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

When I was in Junior HS and some of HS. The lip color was Revlon’s Toast of New York. Almost every girl in NYC the late 80s and early 90s wore this color. Rum raisin was also popular. Take brown lip liner and add some hoops! 

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

Oh my yes, both Toast of New York and Rum Raisin!! I thought I was just like Cindy Crawford when I wore those! Lol!

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

Sadly no photos to share, but in high school I definitely gave into the K-Beauty "gradient lip" trend that got a lot of traction a few years back. I still think this is a super pretty look (if done right - it was beyond high school me's skill level) 😅

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share LIP trends from the past decade!

Gosh I remember before there were good lip stains around using lip sealer / kinda like clear nail polish for your lips and by the end of the day it would all come off in little chunks 🤢... thankfully there are some great products out now! I love Huda as it stays all day  and does not dry out - but also thinking as I am in a mask all day , should just invest in some good lip balm

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

Very interesting

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

Back in my highschool time, it was a trend to have pale lips, as pale as our foundation (that was also around 2 shades too light, not goth, just very light)

 

Alot of people still like that style and for some of them it works, but for some others 🤐🤐🤐😂😂

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

Back in junior high I used to wear lip liner On the outer edge of the lips and clear lip balm in the center. 

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

@SportyGirly125 LOL. I remember this look!

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

Hahahah I totally remember this trend 😂 @SportyGirly125 

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

I remember using Noxzema in the blue jar. It made my face feel fresh and soft!
