Dear every boy in the '90s who wore this haircut: What were you thinking? Bowl cuts can actually look cute sometimes (case in point: Jennifer Hudson's new hair), but parting them down the center and letting the hair look all floppy? Oof.
If you are an adult human, please repeat after me: Pigtails are never a good idea.
It's great that guys decided to get in on the hair dye game, but why did they all opt for this type of awful bleaching pattern?
Nothing makes your eyes look smaller than donning heavy lower lid liner, yet we all opted to do thick black liner all around of our eyes for all 10 years.
Remember when everybody suddenly started wearing tiaras to school dances, proms and, if you were a celebrity, red carpet events? Oh boy. Folks, don't wear a crown unless you're an actual royal.

What was the purpose of this itsy bitsy patch of hair on men's chins? Was it there to keep their bottom lip company? To cover up chin blemishes? To deter all women ever? We need answers.

Butterfly clips were a staple in the hair routine of every '90s girl despite being profoundly unflattering.
If you were a teenager in the 1990s, you probably wore a bandana like Danielle Fishel — a.k.a. Topanga from Boy Meets World — and it probably (i.e. definitely) looked ridiculous.
These cuts can look great, but when you take it as far as Naomi Campbell did in the '90s, it just looks like someone made a mistake.
It's okay, Drew — we all thought it was a good idea to go tweeze-crazy back then.
Parting your hair in a zig zag pattern supposedly makes it look thicker, but it really just looks like you don't know how to use a comb properly.
Highlighting your lips can make them look fuller, but loading them with shimmery, opaque lipstick looks dated and odd.
The perfect style for when you want your eyes to look like they're two-thirds of the way down your face.
