Flashback Friday: Up Your Do

90’s updos make a major comeback

The 90’s will always be one of the most memorable decades in in Black culture. The fashion, art, television, etc. that came from that time period was truly epic. My outfit choices have even been personally inspired from the 90’s.

One trend from the 90’s in particular that has recently made a vicious comeback is the infamous updo. I remember going to the hair salon with my mom every other Saturday. I witnessed her and every woman in that shop getting that updo. Even though the style concept was the same, each stylist had a different craftsmanship behind it. Bangs, swoops, braids, or ponytails their personal touches were hidden throughout the updo to create a unique and amazing look.

This updo has been all over Instagram and Twitter. It has been seen on the heads of many Hollywood stars and they are rocking it beautifully. I personally think this is a refreshing break away from our typical go-to styles. I love to see millennial stylist paying homage to the stylist of the 90’s who set the foundation for their future. I tend to do the same thing with my hair, but I think I just may take a break away from the usual to try this.

Is this a trend that you think you can get with?

I rep the 219, Indiana. I'm a wardrobe stylist and owner of Vintage By. B. I love shopping for pieces that are different and that I know nobody else will have! But one thing I hate about shopping is going broke doing so. Throughout the years of me working in retail, I have picked up a lot of tips and tricks for saving LOTS of money when shopping. I also go against trends by Vintage shopping. I find pieces that I can pair together to create works of art. You can call me a penny pincher, but I'll look BOMB while pinching my pennies :)
