Yeah, I love the look of short haired women.
I just think it's a good look, usually. Kind of tom boyish and carefree.

And whether or not it's a 90's 70's 20's flapper thing couldn't interest me any less.

The 90's was just a great, cool, fun time to be young.
Baggy, comfortable jeans, Lots of colors. It was fun!









It was a great time to be alive, think I'll buy a pair of Docs just to scare everyone into thinking I'm a nazi.

Yes, they were pretty heavy and clunky. I had a couple of pairs. The one I remember best was green. Never had the boots, just shoes.

I prefer lighter shoes now. Suede sneakers are my favorite now.

I do not remember that haircut. But the boots and flight jackets were in at my school. Basically no women had hair shorter than chin length.

I don't remember ever seeing the Chelsea cut in the 90s. However, I will say this. In the 90s, British pop culture did make some headway in the USA. Spice Girls, S Club 7, etc. There was also a bit of 70s motifs. Bell bottom pants were making a come back during those days.

I do have to say, the Doc's wearers I grew up with were not even slightly rebellious. It was just another fashion.

I didn't even know what Doc Martens were until the 2000s.

The Limelight and WLIR/WDRE also comes to mind. (For the NYers in the thread. )

SoLong,
Great thread. 90s Grunge girls were sexy as hell to me. A skirt, with a flannel wrapped around the waist, pair of Docs.. maybe a Tool or Soundgarden shirt on top...nice.

I think the prevalence of short hair is being kinda' overinflated. Most girls I knew back then had long hair.. and a lot of guys were growing theirs out too. (sort of an early-90s Eddie Vedder look). I also remember girls starting to get ink & nose rings, etc.. but it was more moderate. In the early 90s, you didn't see many women outside of music with full sleeves, ink on the neck, etc.
Personally, I prefer that slight edge, over the completely conspicuous, covered in ink/piercings look that has become routine now. but..

That´s how I remember girls in the 90´s. As a guy I had long hair, a goatee and wore Doc´s or my old Army boots with cutoff jeans, a black tee shirt and a Flanel.
or old gren army shirt. A lot of fun times, a lot of good shows.

Grew up outside of Boston in the mid 90's. Spent at least one weekend day a month at The Rat in Kenmore Square (RIP). That look was HUGE amongst all the Punk/skinhead/Oi girls. Most of the guys did the whole skinhead/Oi look too. Tight blue jeans rolled up, Docs, white tank tops, short/shaved hair. It was a fun time for sure. Google "Punks outside The Rat" if you want to see a home video of that particular "scene" at the time in Boston. Pretty cool.
