90s Hair Inspiration

Last month, some wild rumours were flying around that Friends was going to be pulled from Netflix. People lost their minds worrying that they were going to lose their daily dose of Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe. Eventually, Netflix chimed in on Twitter to reassure fans that Friends wasn’t going anywhere.

As fans, here at Millimetre, we couldn’t be happier! Friends is one of the most iconic 90s TV series – it made us laugh, cry and it also inspired us with looks and hairstyles over the years. To celebrate, we’ve picked our favourite 90s looks. Enjoy…

Festival Season

After a brief hiatus, it seems the sun is back again and here to stay! And it’s just in time for festival season! Our trend team at Millimetre have been keeping their ears to the ground for the top hair trends from this year’s festivals so far.

So whether you’re bigging it up at Bestival or loving life at Leeds, we’ve got the perfect look for your festival adventures…


Touch of pink
It’s no secret that we have a massive crush on Game of Throne’s Sophie Turner. Not only is she a hair inspiration but she’s also the global ambassador for one of our favourite products WellaPlex.

With WellaPlex your stylists are now able to treat your hair whilst carrying out your colour transformation. Which is why Sansa Stark is able to keep her hair looking so healthy whilst pulling off so many colour transformations.

One of this season’s trends – as inspired by Sophie Turner – is natural wavy hair with a pink touch to the ends, for a girly but edgy festival look.


Double trouble
We’ve loved space buns since back in the day, when the Spice Girls and Gwen Stefani rocked them first. And we love that the trend has come back around with new twists and reinventions.

Try the classic backcombed buns, or plait your hair for a different look. We love these cute afro buns from the Insta feed of @phanie_00 – that beautiful natural hair and those eyebrows on fleek have got us swooning!


Wear the rainbow
Festivals can give you the chance to experiment with colour in ways you’ve only dreamed about. Rainbow hair is still a hot trend this summer.

If you don’t still want to look like a unicorn back at work on Monday you can try hair extensions or hair chalk to get that temporary rainbow look just like the stunning @JosephineSkriver.


Life is better with glitter
We are loving this look from @bazaar – pairing space buns with a glitter parting is the ultimate festival look.

There’s lots of different glitter looks to pick from and we’d suggest buying your own to take to the festival so you can spread the glitter look far and wide!


90s back, alright!
The 90s trend just will not quit and we are not complaining.

We adore the crop tops, skinny sunglasses and cutesy hair-dos.

Think Cher and Dionne in Clueless mixed with a little bit of Julia Styles in 10 Things I Hate About You and you have the perfect 90s look.


Flower power
Channel your inner hippy with big, bold wavy hair.

It’s the perfect festival look as you can survive the lack of showers by using plenty of dry shampoo and adding braids or a flower crown to cover up any less-than-fresh roots.

We adore this look from@LisaOlsoon


Hat’s cool
Keep cool in the summer sunshine with a wide-brimmed hat.

It’s also a good way to cover your roots between washes at a festival.

Check out your local charity shops for a bargain, and remember to drink lots of water and stay hydrated!


Hair piercings
Hair piercings have been around since last summer but they’re still very on-trend.

We’ve seen them all over the catwalks and they’ve even been modelled by the likes of @ArianaGrande this summer (p.s. congrats on your engagement Ari).

Simply attach the hair piercings and jewels to your braids so a super glam summer hairstyle.


Foulard chic
One of our favourite evergreen trends is the foulard – aka the printed silk scarf.

Pair it with a pair of statement earrings and a bold lip for instant glam.

So what’s your excuse to not try one of this Summer 2018 trends?! Share with us your best look and tag us on Instagram at @millimetre_salons

And don’t forget to ask in your local salon about our special offers on festival treatments!
