The 90’s are Back…and we’re kind of okay with it.

If you told anyone who grew up in the 90’s that the 90’s were coming back in style, they’d probably run screaming and have nightmares of JNCO jeans and hair gel. And although we hope that certain 90’s trends never resurface, there are a few that are coming back, and we’ll allow it.

When you think 90’s, you think hair. BIG hair. Like Cindy Crawford in a Pepsi ad, big.

Granted, it’s been toned down slightly – but there’s been a resurgence of this big, larger than life voluminous hair. Lots of hairspray and hot rollers will get you this look.

Another thing that we’ve been seeing lot’s of lately is pastel coloured hair. This was huge in the 90’s, when iconic supermodels like Kate Moss and actresses like Drew Barrymore (who is by the way, 90’s fashion royalty) started dying their hair various shades of pink.

In 2016, we see softer, more natural versions of this but still just as stunning.

Finally, something that a lot of you thought was left behind for good in the bad-hair archives: mini buns! Gwen Stefani, Cameron Diaz, Bjork; all rocked the mini buns. And yes, they’re back!

Whether you love these or hate these, you have to admit they’re pretty darn cute.

So take a deep breath, it’s not that bad! The 90’s seemed to have creeped back into our lives, but if this is the worst of it, we’re totally fine with that.

Vancouver Car Free Day – Main Street

As we’ve mentioned many many times before, we LOVE our home on Main Street. Especially when we get to be a part of events like Vancouver’s Annual Car Free Day!  This year celebrates the 12th year that Vancouver has held this awesome tradition. Not only does Car Free Day have a huge positive impact on our environment, but it brings communities of people close together and helps small businesses thrive.

As a Green Circle Salon, TRiM cares deeply about the environment. Our personal vehicles are a major cause of global warming; cars and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other harmful gases for every gallon of gas. Around 5 pounds comes from the extraction, production, and delivery of the fuel, while most of the heat-trapping emissions—more than 19 pounds per gallon—comes directly out of a car’s tailpipe. Just think of the emissions that will be reduced by shutting down 4 major streets in Vancouver!

Vancouver’s Car Free Day is a fun-filled action-packed day-long festival. Commercial Drive, Kitsilano, Denman Street and of course, Main Street will all be shut down and there will be mini-festivals, community-supported stages with dozens of bands, multiple kids zones, three giant artisan markets and tons more.

The festival this year is Sunday June 19th, from noon – 7PM. From Broadway to 30th on Main Street. Rain or shine! Oh and did we mention it’s free of charge? We hope to see you there!
