  1. An awesome selection. Particularly admiring the scrunchies and the 'Rachel', both of which graced my head at some point in the decade. I've linked your post up to my nostalgia Linky this week, I hope that's ok - it's on the theme of hairstyles of the past, and you can see it here....

  2. FYI, those are not dreadlocks those are long braids.

  3. Funny how I still do the flip up front as in picture 14

  4. "Remember when guys started to bleach the tips of their hair?" The picture of the main singer of Linkin Park... nice. Gj. From the song Numb. Gj. Applauding.

  5. Zack Morris had some good looking hair back in the days.

  6. I think that is the rapper P.atra (had to spell get her name this way because my silly phone's spellchecker) anyway those are BRAIDS, not dreads. I had the Brandy braids as a teen and those what I wore on/off throughout HS. I'm surprised it hadn't made the list.
