You'd better go get your bell-bottoms, because it looks like the 90s are back! Emmy Rossum is the latest celebrity to be spotted sporting a style we never thought we'd see again: crimped hair.

Remove the elastic and ruffle the hair loose with your fingertips.
It looks like Emmy has crimped the front sections of her hair, before backcombing the rest - or just using a lot of volumizing mousse before drying - and creating a braided crown. This is how Emmy manages to take a Nineties trends and give it a fresh, modern twist (literally).
We've been seeing all sorts of braided styles on the red carpet, and the braided crown is just one: there's also the messy fishtail, the braided bun, the plaited updo, the side braid... the list goes on!
So, having seen how crimped hair can be worked into a modern style, what's the conclusion? Do you think that crimping might have a comeback? We'll just have to wait and see. But in the meantime we applaud Emmy for taking a style risk. She who dares...
