How often have you gone through old photos, and reminiscing about the days of old. The one thing that always seems to catch our eye is how much our hairstyles have changed over the years. Even if you have always tried to keep up with the trending hair styles through the years, when you look back you see your hairstyle borders on traumatizing. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and look at some of the popular hair style trends of the past decades.
The 1970s – The Wild and Free Era
The key word in the seventies was freedom. It was a time of breaking away from traditions, and freeing yourself of worry, and having long free flowing hair was the trend. Afros and shag haircuts also fit into this disco era. For women the most popular look was the feathered hair style that could be seen on stars like Farrah Fawcett.
The 1980s – The Big Hair Era
Hairspray was in hot demand in the 80’s. As many can tell you it was used a lot. Aqua Net was a girls best friend because the bigger the hair the better. High bangs and long poofy locks were very much in. Even men got into the big hair trend as they followed bands like Motley Crue or Poison.
The 1900s – Too Cool for School Era
As we stepped into the 90’s, the Aqua Net went back on the shelf as hair styles became a little more toned down. Pixie haircuts were made popular by stars like Winona Ryder, and layers exploded onto the scene because of the iconic look from Rachel in “Friends” played by Jennifer Aniston.
The 2000s – Polished Era
As we hit the 2000s decade, hair styles became more about what looked good, rather than about trends. Hair types and face shapes played an important role in the hairstyle process. Hair care also became popular and many started to use more organic products that started to became more affordable. Styles like beach wavy curls to flat iron sleek locks would become timeless hairstyles.
As we go forward and time continues to pass, hairstyles will continue to change and be a big part of our personalities. Who knows what the next hairstyle will be the next big trending look.
