Oh the 90s, a wonderfully strange time where butterfly clips and platform sneakers ruled all. While most of us are able to repress the memories of this slightly embarrassing phase of our lives dominated by gel-scrunched hairstyles and metallic blue eyeshadow (what were we thinking?!), celebrities often don't have the same luxury. A photo of Zac Efron with crimped hair from the 90s has recently made its way onto the internet, and it has obviously gone viral, because it's pure freaking gold. You have to see it to believe it.
The 28-year-old made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, not knowing he was in for a blast from the past. Notorious funny man Fallon, of course, seized the opportunity for some late night laughs, resurrecting Efron's 8th grade, crimped hair photo. The actor recalled a middle school memory during summer arts camp, explaining, "It was just me and a bunch of a lot older girls and they crimped my hair and I thought I was awesome..." But wait, it gets better. Fallon then pulled out matching wigs with fully crimped hair which the two then proceeded to wear for the rest of the show.
Are you for Zac with crimped hair? Brace yourselves.
LOL. Can he bring this style back please?!
Personally I think he should rock crimped hair all day, every day.
Check out the full clip below to see all throwback hairstyle goodness.
Efron's willingness to throw on a crimped wig and poke fun at his middle school self clearly proves he's got a sense of humor when it comes to his look. Let's check out a few of his most standout and slightly comical style moments, shall we?
1. Fringe Crop Top & Neon Sweats
TBH, more guys should rock crop tops.
2. Cropped Tank & Multicolored Pants
It seems his role in Dirty Grandpa required lots of crop tops...
3. Stuffed Animal Undies
...And strange animal speedos, apparently.
4. Boy Band Hair
Totally channeling Justin Bieber and pretty much all of One Direction in their early days.
5. Full-On Drag
This. Is. Everything.
6. 90s Bandana
Rock out, Zac.
7. This Hairstyle
I'm not even sure what's going on here, but hey, whatever floats your boat, Zac.
