90's Hair Inspiration | Big Shoulder Dusting Tresses

I’ve been dying to chop off all my hair lately. I’ve worn it extremely long since growing it out from the short, platinum bob with pink highlights that wrecked it in 2003-2004. I swore that once I restored my hair to its healthy and happy state, I’d keep it long for as long as I could. But it’s been nearly 10 years now, and I think it’s time for change. And while I’d love to fall back on my favorite bobbed style, I think I’ll keep it a bit on the longer side this time. So I’m taking major hair inspiration from the shoulder dusting lengths with BIG VOLUME from the 1990’s and pocketing styling tips from the Supermodels of the time, like deep side parts, messy beachy waves, and blown-back voluminous curls.
