These Celebs Are Absolutely Rocking '90s Crimped Hairstyles

The crimped hair look is on its way back into style, and these celebrities are showing us exactly how to rock it (without looking like we're going to a seventh-grade dance)!

Getting ready for middle school dances with our friends always included sliding into one of our many Aeropostale polo shirts, adding a touch (OK, a heap) of blue eyeshadow and crimping each other's hair to absolute perfection. Our polo and too-much-eyeshadow days might be (thankfully) far behind us, but we have an ultimate confession: Even though hair crimping went out of style, we never actually stopped loving it.

But now, thanks to the hair gods and these celebs, one of our favorite trends could be back, and with a chic, modern twist, it's seriously better than ever.

Gigi Hadad rocks the center part with a whole head of crimped hair:

Anna Kendrick proves that you don't have to wear your hair down when it's crimped:

Katy Perry added some colorful, metallic extensions to her crimped look:


1 YEAR year ago today, 138 shows, over 2 million faces, and more than a hundred flights later, we are still going strong on #ThePrismaticWorldTour! Tonight we wrapped our biggest show yet with over 30,000 people in attendance in Manila! I created this show to continue our CONNECTION, sing with you, celebrate music together and hopefully bring a little more light to your lives. I am proud of the strength and stamina the whole team has had and that we've never had a major injury or a canceled a show. For me, I know this is God's protective hand over us. Also, I AM BEYOND GRATEFUL to all of the hard working people that help me create this magnificat show and that travel with me in every department (sometimes up to 128 ppl) to put on a show of this magnitude! I am so proud of what we created and so grateful to the fans for spending their time and MONEY to come see #THEPRISMATICWORLDTOUR! I will always try to keep it 100 for you, you have my word! 3 more shows, Asia! Summer break, then we're coming for you in September, South America. β€οΈπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

And even Zac Efron got in on the action! (Obviously kidding, but we couldn't resist):


#tbt to when #ZacEfron had #crimpedhair and . . . let's just say he didn't look like he does now. But, thankfully, now is, well, now!
