Retro Fashion: Throwback Photos of Genevieve Nnaji, 4 Others Rocking Spiky Hair Trend

While silky and long human hair seems to be all that every lady is sporting these days, as with everything fashion, this has not always been the case.

The 1990s and early 2000s witnessed an era of outrageous fashion trends that we hope to God does not make a comeback.

One of such trends was the spiky feathered hairstyle and almost every babe - who was au courant - definitely sported this style at one point, if not more than once.

What's a throwback Thursday without an epic look from the Jenifa star, right? Akindele's pixie spiky hairdo may have been hot back then, but it would certainly be a travesty in today's fashion world.

Retro fashion is back in vogue

The 90s were an interesting time especially on the fashion scene and at a time when social media was non-existent, the Nigerian film stars were the main influencers taking fashion risks and boldly setting trends.

From outrageous wigs and braids, disturbingly tight low-rise pants and blouses down to their riotous makeup and excessive jewelries, the 90s was an era filled with numerous fashion highlights.

However, as ridiculous as some of these trends may appear to some people now, there are some 90s trends that are slowly taking over the fashion scene once again and it seems a lot of people are here for them.
