Cruz Beckham’s 90s curtain hairstyle with frosted ends might be a divisive style for those of us who lived through many of the worst hair horrors the 90s served up – think the ‘Dumb and Dumber‘ bowl cut; lank, floppy curtains; cement-hard gelled spikes; shaved ‘tram lines’. *shudders*
Yet somehow 17-year-old Cruz carries it off this 90s boyband look. Could it be those frosted tips giving it a fashion edge? His natural insouciance? The fact that his Dad has had some seriously sh*t hairstyles in the past yet has still emerged as a style icon?
Whatever the reason, it’s working. And MFH looks forward to more experiments from this up and coming (hair)style leader.
After all it was only a mere eight months ago Cruz was featured on the cover of uber hip iD magazine with a pastel pink buzz cut.
Setting the bar high…
- Cruz Beckham’s 90s curtain hairstyle with frosted ends has length at the top and back, and is slightly tapered at the sides.
- This look is best cut with the scissor over comb technique.
- Your fringe should be kept long (Cruz’s hair is just below eyebrow length) so that it can be centre parted and styled into curtains.
- His frosted tips are just at the ends at the the top of his hair.
- This would have most likely been done using a balayage technique.
- Say what? In a nutshell, balayage is a highlighting technique during which your colourist will hand-paint the colour onto your hair so it looks more natural and sunkissed. No foils required.
- Don’t attempt to do it at home!
- Cruz Beckham’s 90s curtain hairstyle with frosted ends use a comb to create a hard parting in the middle. Simple tip: use your nose as a guideline.
- When your hair is towel dry apply a volumising product through the mid-section before blow drying.
- Then add small amount of pomade, wax or gel to the palm of your hand, rub your hands together to spread it, then rub it through your dry hair and tousle it with your fingers.
- You can always add more more later, bit by bit, if necessary.
- Push your curtains up a little into a ‘half quiff’, and pull down the sides for that ‘floppy’ curtain effect.
- Also pull a few strands down onto your forehead, too.
