The Spice Girls Best Beauty Moments Will Make You Nostalgic For Crimped Hair

Spice up your beauty life.

Originally Published: 

Ah, the '90s. A time filled with boy bands, flared jeans, and some of the greatest beauty trends ever. And while some might have shied away from the crimper and temporary hair color, the Spice Girls fully embraced it, delivering on hit after hit beauty routine.

Ahead, take a look back at the makeup and hair that defined a generation. As the Spice Girls — AKA Mel B ("Scary Spice"), Mel C ("Sporty Spice"), Emma Bunton ("Baby Spice"), Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice") and Victoria Beckham ("Posh Spice") — so often demonstrated, the '90s was a time for experimenting, and this super group never shied away from trying something new.

This look was all about the lip color, as each Spice Girls member chose a glossy, neutral shade that was all the '90s rage.

It was all about the lipstick with this 1997 look. Each Spice wore an individual color, with hues including dark brown, soft pink, and a bright red.
