March 27, 2017
Happy Flashback Friday, Baes! You guys know that we love hair trends and that includes looks from the previous years! Before social media, iconic looks were set by famous personalities like elites, celebrities and royalties. Let’s all take stroll down memory lane and see our fave hairstyles from 1910 - present time!
Most ladies wore their hair up into an intricate updo finished off with stunning accessories like ribbons and bedazzled headpieces.
Women ditched the girly vibe and sported defined and messy curls paired up with dramatic makeup. Stage or burlesque performers usually rocked this look. It became the iconic 20's look that we all adore.
From risqué to regal, perfect waves were rocked by top stars. This is known as the signature “Old Hollywood” look.
During the pinup era, women rocked perfectly molded and positioned curls. This hairdo, called "victory rolls" is the most popular style from this period.
Marilyn Monroe, ‘nuff said! Women rocked big waves and curls to achieve a more fun yet sexy vibe. This beautiful hair trend was made iconic by Marilyn Monroe.
The mod era is all about bright colors and accessories. A lot of trendsetters rocked long curls, piecey bangs and bold headpieces like thick headbands. This was the beginning of women showing off their individuality with their hairstyles.
The 70’s was known for discos, bell bottoms and rock ‘n roll. They sported wispy waves and ironed straight locks.
More is more! Style icons from this period definitely didn’t hold anything back. This era is iconic for bold makeup, statement accessories and big, teased tresses. Madonna is the perfect example of this, making a statement was important.
If you grew up in the 90’s (or binge watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S.) you know that it was all about dramatic highlights and choppy layers. Some of us even rocked butterfly clips and scrunchies.
This era is about experimentation! The popular looks from this time are crimped hair, thin braids and colorful hair extensions. Some of us even rocked these all at the same time!
Now, hairstyles are inspired by looks from previous years. People nowadays don’t feel the need to follow one sole trend. One of the most popular hair look from the present era is loose waves and long layers. Sleek hair is most definitely in, and can be accomplished using hot tools. Of course, we owe the ladies of the past for influencing our current styles!
