With her new strands of neon hair - inspired by the Spice Girls - the supermodel Bella Hadid shows once again how much she adores the 90s.
Bella Hadid's new hairstyle is heavily inspired by the 90s.
Bella Hadid is no stranger to eye-catching strands that frame her face. For his latest hairstyle, the model was inspired by his favorite decade: the 90s.
It was just before Christmas when supermodel Bella met hairstylist Evanie Frausto, who dyed her two-tone, broad strands in bright orange tones. "We're both very inspired by the 90s, and that time was all about strands and chunky highlights," says Frausto, explaining the high-contrast, two-tone hairstyles of the decade. "Since then, the color transitions have become softer, so it's a rather old-fashioned technique to apply paint." In addition to the thickness and placement of the eye-catching highlights, the brass-colored, bronze tones were an allusion to the time. "The colors were warmer back then, which added to the feeling of nostalgia," he says. Shortly before New Year's Eve, Bella Hadid intensified the color effect with the help of colorist Jenna Perry by coloring even more intense tones with bright mandarin and carmine red - the return of her beloved lava streaks - for an even more extreme multitone effect.

While the overall look is reminiscent of a number of references, from the 1997 sci-fi movie "The Fifth Element" to the two-tone haircut David Bowie wore during his "Station to Station" era in the mid-1970s, Frausto says that it was Spice Girls band member Ginger Spice who was Hadid's leading inspiration all along. "It's a nice way to add a splash of color without it being too lively for everyday life," says Frausto of the portability of the model's fiery remake. In early 2021, Hadid's take on the ultimate '90s reference is adding a touch of cool to her edgy style, whether on the streets of New York City or the slopes of Aspen.
