Helen Flanagan showcases ‘Rachel Green’ 90s hair look

The nineties is well and truly trending again when it comes to fashion and beauty looks. Think brown lip liner, Rimmel Heather Shimmer lipstick and even skinny brows – they’re all back and all over TikTok and Instagram.

Case in point, former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has just showcased another very popular nineties beauty look that features an affordable hair accessory, the claw clip, and it’s giving Rachel Green vibes.

Talking to Instagram to share a gallery post of her outfit of the day with her million followers, Helen shared a side look at her soft brown toned makeup and her blonde hair swept up into the claw clip – although admittedly hers was a rather expensive designer option by Prada.

(If you can’t quite stretch to a few hundred pounds for a hair accessory, we recommend this very nineties tortoiseshell option that’s available at ASOS, £6 here.)

Of course, Helen’s fans were unsurprisingly quick to heap praise on the star’s gorgeous look. “So beautiful” one follower enthused, as another declared, “Love the side profile”.

Meanwhile a third fan chimed in with, “Gorgeous” as a fourth agreed, “Beautiful”. We quite agree.

It’s not the first time recently that one of Helen’s hairstyles has sent her fanbase into a bit of a spin. Earlier this year she showed off a lengthy hair transformation that many of her followers described as “princess hair”.

The 31 year old temporarily switched up her style with the help of extensions for an OK! shoot, sharing some behind-the-scenes snaps showing the “princess” style in all its glory.

“When your bestie gives you actual princess hair,” she writes, tagging in her hairstylist pal Jay Amir-Nazemi Afshar.

Helen stunned fans in a bold green dress with loose waves falling down to her waist. Her buttery blonde hair had an incredible shine to it, while her makeup featured understated black eyeliner and a defined, glossy rose-coloured pout.

“This hair looks AMAZING on you,” raves one fan, while another comments: “You look amazing Helen. Loveeee this hair so much.”

Brb, off to dig out our old claw clips. We wonder which hairstyle Helen will bring back next?
