We Bet Reese Witherspoon Regrets This '90s Hairstyle

Posted: Updated:

Oh, the '90s! Our family photo albums are filled with Polaroids of us sporting trends we thought were so cool from that decade, but now regret. And not even celebrities are exempt from such embarrassing moments, as we see in this throwback photograph of Reese Witherspoon.

Before her "Cruel Intentions" and "Legally Blonde" days, the blue-eyed actress got her bearings on the red carpet in the late 1990s. While Reese experimented with dark lipstick, belly-baring shirts and loads of black, this look she wore to the Los Angeles premiere of "Nowhere" in 1997 stands out the most.

Yes, those are hair knots (aka bantu knots) à la Gwen Stefani and Miley Cyrus. But instead of having them take over her entire head, Reese opted for an awkward half-up, half-down hairdo. *Kanye shrug*. Her smokey blue-gray eyeshadow, choker necklaces and spaghetti strap tank top just makes this even more '90s-tastic.

Thankfully, Reese has settled into her signature sleek and sexy hairstyle. And we can only hope that like us, she can look back at photos like this and have a good laugh.

Happy 38th birthday, Reese! Here's to better hair days.
