So, a couple weeks ago someone was describing a person's haircut as "stuck in the '90s".

Many previous decades have some signature haircuts, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, all these decades I can imagine some haircuts that match. But 1990s? :smt102

What is the definitive 1990s haircut to you?

Bonus question: What is the definitive 2000s haircut then???

2000's would definitely be the windswept do all the kids are sporting.

The 90's....Maybe the "Rachel" for the women side.

Okay, at this point pics would be helpful.

What is the gumby?

Is that like the carefully-cultivated bed-head look?

This is turning out more confusing than I imagined it would.

Okay, I see the gumby is one of those wedgy high top fades.

That's good, but it just doesn't feel right to me, for the conversation I was in.

Depends. In the early 90s black people were still rocking high top fades but they started getting regular fades, then eventually it became about waves and then some idiot decided wearing a doo-rag as part of an outfit was cool.

For white people though I would say an undercut. Everyone had those. Even me with my good hair.

I always hated the doo-rag thing, unless it was just some poor old lady who didn't take the time to put her wig on that morning.

Undercut...it sounds fairly straightforward but I can't picture what you mean.

I should disclose at this point that I haven't been to a barbershop in over 24 years. Barbershop? Barber Shop? Barber's Shop? I don't even know which is right.

I should go to one tomorrow and ask for a '90s haircut just to see what they do.

Agreed on the undercut. It was sort of a bowl cut/undercut either parted in the middle or just to the side. And bleached blonde. Think Matt Damon of that era.

Its when you let the top of your hair grow and they clip it up and shave the back and sides. Some dudes would gel it back (ugh) and others would let it down.

It has recently become popular again but this time with ladies and long hair.

Oddly enough, I actually had this discussion while I was at lunch today. I would argue that a little haircut that I like to refer to as the "Sawa" could be a serious contender for the Definitive 90's haircut.

Image

Here we see the "Sawa" popping up on Boy Meets World star Will Friedle's head, apparently Mr. Feeny wasn't there for warn him against the "Sawa":

Image

The "Sawa" also made an appearance on Jeremy London's head in Mallrats. Watch out Jeremy, Merle is watching you!

Image

Hell, Leonardo Dicaprio even wore the "Sawa" while he was king of the world in Titanic:

Yeah, the undercut. You could have the hair on top long too. Like a reverse mullet.

Yeah, that's what I had. :lol:

I usually had it in a ponytail and would even do a "top knot" sometimes, lol. :oops:
