It seems like some of our favorite beauty trends from the ’90s have made a comeback on TikTok. One particular hairstyle is blowing up (fluffy hair) and we’re so here for it. You can achieve the same look at home with these tips.
What is fluffy hair?
‘90s babies call this a classic blowout but kids these days dubbed it “fluffy hair”. For anyone who needs a little inspiration, take note of Topanga Lawrence from Boy Meets World and Cher Horowitz from Clueless. The new name for this style is likely a reference to the bounce that it gives off. The more ruffled and fluffier it looks, the better.

It’s no surprise that trends come and go. But the 90s and early 2000s are making a major comeback this year. The trend of the fluffy blowout has been gaining momentum, with influencers like Hailey Bieber and Emma Chamberlain rocking them on TikTok.
How to get fluffy hair?
So, you want to try out this trend but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry. If you’ve booked a salon appointment, it is important that you bring a reference picture. If you want to give it a try yourself, our celebrity hairstylist and artistic director for ColorWow, Joseph Maine, has some tips for replicating this look.
Step 1: You’ll need a hot tool, brush, and comb as well as some heat protectant spray to protect your hair. Maine recommends wetting your hair before applying the leave-in conditioner to prep it.
Step 2: To protect your hair from heat damage, divide it into even sections and mist on the heat protectant. Maine suggests, “I would spray it all throughout to repel humidity and act as a thermal protectant. It also gives that red carpet shine.”
Step 3: Blow dry your hair with the round brush wrapped around it and direct the air from the blow dryer to your roots. Begin working the brush down the shaft of your hair and finishing by tucking the ends under. You’ll want your ends to turn inwards, almost like they were curled up.
Step 4: For the ultimate blowout, use velcro rollers (or pins) to add even more volume. It’s optional but I always recommend running your hairdryer over them and sleeping on overnight with these if you want that extra voluminous look.
Step 5: Maine suggests, “Once the hair has cooled down, remove the clips or rollers, and brush your hair from the inside while scooping it forward.”
Step 6: With the perfect amount of hairspray, you can now sport your ‘90s-inspired look with pride.
