Scrunchies have been back in business for a while now, and slowly but surely other retro hairstyles are infiltrating our feeds. This isn’t just the odd barrette but also major ways to style, colour or cut your hair.
Unfortunately, the iconic ‘Rachel’ is yet to become the 2019 haircut of choice.

Proving this look is well and truly back, a day later Kylie Jenner wore the exact same style on the red carpet. On her Instagram stories Jenner credited Hadid as her “hair inspo”, but she equally could have gone further back and thanked Naomi Campbell or Denise Richards over 20 years ago.
