The 90’s are surely making a comeback in more ways than one. Whether or not this is a good thing, we’ll leave that up to you to decide. However, we are fully on board with the zigzag parting trend. This simple part can create an edgy take on otherwise simple styles.

Wet Slick-Back

When done right, the slicked-back style can take your look from drab to fab in a matter of minutes. To achieve this look load up on the hair gel and bobby pins and you too can achieve a sophisticated runway look.


A personal favorite, try adding barrettes to any hairstyle. As a solution to tame the infamous quarantine-inspired curtain bangs, or stacked asymmetrical along your part, you can’t go wrong. One or 10, barrettes can help to create a standout style or add a casual flare to any outfit. Experiment with pearl studded, colorful or even oversized barrettes.

Side Part

Middle parts have had the spotlight for long enough, now it's time to make some room for the side part. Pulling your hair into a deep side part can add extra volume when you’re looking for a little something more.

Face-Framing Braids

We definitely understand why baby braids have been flooding our Instagram feeds in recent months. Perfect for framing your face, small braids can help soften your profile while drawing attention to all of the right places.


A quality headband can both tame and accentuate any hair texture. Plus, they’re a fun and easy way to accessorize without having to load up on the jewelry. The key to success is channeling your inner Blair Waldorf.

Head Scarves

We never thought we’d be saying this, but bad hair days will become a thing of the past thanks to the head scarf. This simple way to disguise four-day-old hair is almost too good to be true. Head scarves can ornament a ponytail holder or serve as a frizz-combatting option.
