How was a '90s teen supposed to keep up with these rapidly revolving trends? Enter the teen 'zine, your guide to the fashion and beauty scene.

'90s girlies subscribed to countless magazines and then devoured the monthly issues the moment they were delivered. Seventeen, YM, CosmoGirl--all featured fashion spreads, celeb interviews, and whacky personality quizzes.

These magazines also featured plenty of advertisements where impressionable teens were introduced to the shampoos that promised to give them gorgeous, full-bodied hair.
