If you're going to spice up your life, snatch up some of the tools and products necessary to style these 'dos.
Geri Halliwell AKA Ginger Spice had a similar, redheaded version of "The Rachel" haircut, another staple of the 90s. Layered and usually straight, Ginger Spice always had some height at the crown and some face-framing strands (that might or might not have been dyed a different shade than the rest of her hair). If you want full and voluminous, but still smooth and straight, we'd first start with a blowout. To reach peak Ginger: apply our Blah To Bouncy Blow Dry Cream to damp strands and our Root Werk Root Lifter to the roots of wet hair. Then section off hair and dry with a round bristle brush. Our Signature Hair Dryer uses negative ion conditioning technology, which helps maintain moisture and combat frizz.
When Victoria Beckham AKA Posh Spice sang "2 Become 1," we can only assume she was talking about the two main attributes of her signature hairstyle: short and sleek. Get hair that's Posh-approved-smooth by using our Gloss Boss Serum to add even more shine. A high-quality flat iron, like our Megastar, is going to be the ticket for the Posh Spice look that will pay homage to when they bring the tour to your city.
It takes a lot of confidence for a woman to pull off pigtails, so props to Emma Bunton, the youngest member of the crew, Baby Spice. Her main go-to was straight pigtails with a section of hair wrapped around the pigtail to cover the elastic. Besides a straightener and elastics, add some bobby pins and a little dry shampoo, to add texture and hide any greasy roots in your part. So our Dirty to Flirty Dry Shampoo Aerosol is definitely your Baby Spice costume arsenal. If you do wrap the elastics with a section of hair, set the look with some of our Freeze Please Finishing Spray.
Melanie Brown / Mel B / Scary Spice's motto in 1996 was "buns in the front, party in the back." She embraced her natural texture and had the curliest mane of the fivesome. Her look definitely added more girl power. If you're attempting to emulate Mel B's wild mane, we'd suggest our Classic Curling Wand Pearl with a 13mm barrel. This barrel delivers crease-free, natural-looking curls, and also gives you gorgeous spirals with the right technique. If you decide to do some front buns too, we'd set them with a hold and shine spray like the NuMe Hair-Fie Ready Finishing Spray.
The award for the easiest Spice 'do to replicate goes to Melanie Chisholm AKA Mel C AKA Sporty Spice. Move over Ariana Grande, the original high top ponytail belongs to Sporty. She also wasn't afraid to adorn a scrunchie to hold it in place (which embodies the '90s era). Perhaps the best Spice Girl to channel on dirty hair days, mimic Sporty's ponytail and also mask greasy roots with our Clean N' Mean Dry Shampoo Powder.
Since the Spice Girls are singing together again, you have been granted permission to emulate their OG hairstyles. Follow us on Instagram @NuMeStyle for tons of hair inspo, tools, and product recs. We'd also recommend joining our Rewards & Loyalty Program to earn points on all your purchases!
