How to Get 90s Straight Hair with Matrix


Embracing the 90s fashion revival? We definitely are, and there’s no way that any 90s throwback look would be complete without super-straight, gorgeous hair. Whether you’re a sultry brunette, a fiery redhead or a Californian blonde like 90s fave Cher Horowitz, it’s got to be straight and it’s got to be super soft and shiny.

We’re not talking the ironed straight 2000s style, either, but the more natural, effortless straight look that existed before we all became slaves to straightening tools.  So how do you keep hair sleek and straight without going overboard with the irons? Thanks to one of our favourite ranges, Matrix Total Results, it’s easy to achieve the look at home.

Getting started, and prepping hair is key to nailing this 90s look. Starting with Sleek Shampoo sets you on the road to being frizz-free and flawless, and of course the sidekick Total Results Sleek Conditioner is a must. The third prep must-have that our stylists love is the Sleek Blow Down Leave In Cream. Easy to apply, it even speeds up your blow dry time at the same time as leaving locks nourished and soft. The added bonus? It’s got built-in heat protection too – and you know how much we love that by now.

What about damaged hair, we hear you cry? For those of us who have sinned against our hair in the past, there’s thankfully a fix to get you back on the road to a healthy, frizz-free finish. Use the Break Fix Elixir on towel dried hair, leave it in and let it heal your locks for results that get better and better with every use.

One of our pro #SupercutsTips for hair drying time: if you’re looking for that 90s-inspired centre part finish, start with a side parting and blow dry hair straight using your brush. Now, flip over to part it on the other side and repeat. Finally, create your parting down the middle and give the hair a cool shot all over. The result gives you that little bit of root lift that’s oh-so-retro, while keeping things on-trend and natural.

Finaly, finish your look without adding too much weight with a serum for designed to tame those post-blowdrying flyaways. We love the Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil. You can use this pre-blowdry for maximum results, or just a tiny drop sparingly applied through the lengths of dry hair can give a gorgeous gloss.

All that’s left is to throw on your choker, crop top and Mom jeans. So cool.
