People Are Doing 2000s Makeovers on TikTok, And The Amount Of Body Glitter Present Is Pretty Precious

Does anyone know how to recycle better than the fashion industry? When it comes to fashion, old will eventually become new yet again. We’ve just got to wait long enough for trends to reset and for the cycle to come around again. It looks like it’s finally our time to shine. If you sported sparkly butterfly clips, over-sized hoops, mirror-like gloss, and frosted eye shadow, prepare to feel just a little bit nostalgic.

Girls on Tik Tok are giving themselves 2000’s inspired makeovers and our preteen selves are loving these looks.

Set to Britney Spear’s Iconic 2000s bop “Oops!… I Did It Again,” Tik Tok users are having tons of fun with their looks. Using fashion trends that are nearly 20 years old at this point, the video-sharing site is full of these creative early Millennium looks.

This Tic Tok user shows us how to rock the 2000s chola vibe and we’re feeling very seen.

Tik Tok / @natalie.angle

Complete with thinned out eyebrows and supermini shades, Tik Tok’s @Natalie.Angle looks like she’s come off the set of the 2000s’ “Charlie’s Angels” reboot. We have to admit that over-sized hoops are peek new Millennium but us Latinas never really dropped the accessory from our bad of tricks. When something works, we’ve got to stick with it, after all.

This one features those over-sized, bedazzled sunglasses that were en vogue back in the 2000s.

Tik Tok user @chaseevers_ looks like every mean girl in every movie set in the 2000s. The dark lip liner paired with the glossy lip has her looking like a Paris Hilton wannabe and we can admit that we maybe tried this looked out once or twice.

This one comes complete with the “Loser” L hand gesture on her forehead.

Tik Tok / @Sophiekraynak

We’ve got to respect this look. Is there anything more 2000s than low rise jeans and a cropped halter tank? Maybe the hairstyle that Tik Tok user @Sophiekraynak is sporting in her 2000s makeover. We can totally see her as an extra on a Christina Aguilera music video.

This Twitter user looks just like a Bratz Doll from the new Millennium.

Tik Tok / @rosathetiktokqueen

The use of butterfly hair clips and metallic lip gloss reminds us of every photo shoot we ever saw in the pages of “Seventeen Magazine.” The addition of those over-sized platinum white sunglasses makes her look like she’s the 2000s’ hottest new pop star. We can just see her dodging the paparazzi with a large frappuccino in one hand and a tiny puppy tucked under her arm.

The use of a bandanna in her hair makes this Tik Tok user look like a 2000s It Girl.

Tik Tok / @elsasjÖkvist

In her video, Tik Tok user @ELSASJÖKVIST uses a very slim brow brush to draw in the notoriously thin eyebrows that everyone sported in the year 2000. While we aren’t looking to have that trend come back, we have to give it up for her authenticity. Also, check her use of a scarf for a belt. Peek 2000s vibes. 

Is this a long lost member of Destiny’s Child!?

Tik Tok / @positiveidaa

Remember “Survivors” era Destiny’s Child? After all the lineup drama when Michelle, Kelly, and Beyoncé finally cemented themselves as the true members of the 2000s girl group. This look is straight out of that time. We’re loving this mix of military chic that Tik Tok user @positiveidaa is serving us in her video. 

Didn’t Fergie rock this look back in the day? 

Tik Tok / @giannantonelli

Again, lip gloss as shiny as mirrored sunglasses was what 2000s style was all about. This Tik Tok user’s slicked down and rubber-banded bangs are another fashion choice that we’ve only ever seen in the new Millennium.

Butterfly clips WERE our preteen years so we adore this user’s style. 

Tik Tok / @misocolorful

That frosted eye shadow is giving us chills all the way from here. Coupled with her super glossy lips and clear backpack, we can see Tik Tok user @misocolorful hanging at her local mall’s food court back in the mid-2000s.

We’re eager to see how long it will take before the next generation roasts this decade’s looks. Either way, we’re sure that we will feel oddly nostalgic and have to give it up for all the styles that didn’t age as well as we thought they would.

A Hairstylist Defended Her Latina Assistant From An Angry Customer And The Video Has Gone Viral

A Hairstylist Defended Her Latina Assistant From An Angry Customer And The Video Has Gone Viral

SHARON / YouTube

A Los Angeles hairstylist named Sharon is getting a lot of love for how she handled an upset client. According to Sharon’s account, the client was being racist and she was not going to let the woman get away with it. Here is what we know so far.

A TikTok video is going viral showing a hairstylist reprimanding an upset client.

@sharon.simplyinsane

Y’all ROBIN IS THE NEW KAREN!!! This literally had me shaking!!!! Beware of this behavior people!!! #fyp #xyzbca #karen

♬ original sound – SHARON👑

The brief video shows the client, Robin, telling Sharon that she didn’t want the assistant working on her hair. The video is brief and shows the interaction after Robin is already in the chair and having her hair done. However, Sharon claims that Robin has been racist in the past and that the actions on this day just further exacerbated that sentiment.

Sharon has been working on Robin’s hair for about two years and she feels she understands her.

In an Instagram Live video, Sharon talks about how she has experienced Robin’s racism growing throughout the years of working together.

“She’s always coming into the salon and was really proud of doing derogatory things. That’s why I say I connected the dots like 30 minutes after everything happened cause I started to think about the way she spoke in every appointment and she was always very derogatory towards Mexicans. She’d be like, ‘Oh yeah, and guess what. They were Mexican,’” Sharon says in the IG Live. “So, I’m like thinking, I’m putting the pieces together. I look at Alex and I go, ‘Alex, you let me know what feeling. Is it just me or did you feel from the jump that there was some racism off the f***ing bat?’ She’s like, ‘Oh my god! I’m so happy you said that because I didn’t want to say anything but I 1000 percent felt that way.”

Sharon claims to have the beginning of the experience on camera and has promised to share it.

During her IG Live, Sharon says that Robin entered and immediately started treating her assistant, Alex, with disrespect. According to Sharon, Robin didn’t address Alex directly and checked her out with an up and down glance.

“For all of you people saying your own opinions saying like, ‘There was no racism,’” Sharon tells the IG Live audience. “First of all, you only got a three-minute and 15-second post so let’s relax. Second of all, Alex and I were the only ones in the room and if we felt like there was racism happening then there was racism happening. Point blank. Period.”

Some people are celebrating Sharon and her handling of Robin in the video.

“Mind you, you guys, her own granddaughter reached out to me,” Sharon says in the video. “Her own granddaughter reaches out to me and she basically said we don’t condone Robin’s behavior, we don’t have a relationship with her, we are so sorry this happened. We want to pay you. I was like, ‘No. Honestly, you coming to me and having the energy and the balls basically to come to me and say, ‘Hey. I’m her granddaughter and I’m so sorry.’ I was like, ‘You win. Hands down to you.’”

Here’s a longer version of the interaction that Sharon posted to YouTube.

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

Talk about a take back.

Yesterday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her 31st birthday, and to pay tribute to her, some of her biggest fans used the congresswoman’s signature looks and iconic words. The result was a mass of Tik Tok and Twitter makeup tutorials set to a mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s 2017 track “Humble.” AOC’s recent spack down of Representative Ted Yoho, who allegedly called the congresswoman a “crazy,” “disgusting” “f*cking b*tch” also made an appearance.

In an ode to AOC’s iconic takedown of Representative Ted Yoho this past July, users donned amazing lip colors and AOC’s finest words.

The AOC Birthday celebration meme saw users do their makeup and style their hair while mouthing a speech AOC gave this past July. Some of the videos featured facts about AOC and her accomplishments in office.

“I am here because I have to show my parents that I am their daughter and that they did not raise me to accept abuse from men,” the user’s mouth while the audio clip of AOC plays.

Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez even took part in the trend.

Earlier this summer, Rep. AOC admonished Rep. Ted Yoho on the House floor after he called her a “f*cking b*tch.”

According to reports, the confrontation occurred when the two members of Congress were passing each other on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Rep. Yoho allegedly confronted AOC and accused her of being “disgusting.” This occurred after she made comments that New York’s spike in crime had been caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Rep. AOC rebuked Yoho for his lack of apology at the time on the house floor soon after.

“It is cultural. It is a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting violence and violent language against women, an entire structure of power that supports that,” AOC said before adding “Mr. Yoho mentioned that he has a wife and two daughters – I am two years younger than Mr. Yoho’s youngest daughter. I am someone’s daughter, too. My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter. My mother got to see Mr. Yoho’s disrespect.”
