Vintage Rocks, The Time Travelling Hair Parlour is Making Me Nineties

One of the things I love about Vintage Rocks Hair Parlour in Belfast is that if you give them a hair idea, or colour, no matter what it is, you can be confident that when you leave after your appointment, what's on your head will be exactly what you had inside it before you walked in.

I emailed the main woman herself, Clare, and asked her could it be possible to give me an all over, choppy, obviously a fake effect, head of highlights. Now many hairdressers would say yes then go ahead and try to give you a more natural look, they'll assume that's what you really would prefer. With Clare and her team however, they'll do exactly what you want. If that means a full head of mermaid colour, like my friend Claire got recently shown below, then that's what you'll get.

So when Clare saw my ideas, big, choppy, artificial highlights, she knew what I meant and what I was showing her was what I actually wanted done.

She said it was a 1990s' look that was coming back into fashion. I hadn't realised that, but that makes it even cooler- retro hair! The prime suspect for making this type of highlight a hit was Jennifer Aniston, so maybe I should go the whole hog and get the cut too. Excited to get along and have it done very soon.

In the 90s' we all crimped our hair, soaked it with Sun-In that never worked, and thought we were the bee's knees when we used a pack of semipermanent Glints hair dye. Hair mascara was another short term colouring product, which mostly just made you look like a bird had pooed on your head.

Hopefully most of you escaped the spiral perm though, a sneaky roll over from the 80s' which should have stayed there. Perms are bound to make a comeback soon, so don't try to hide if you had one- even Posh Spice did.
