Five Decades of Classic Hairdos

Some hair trends come and go; there are old classics which we will never forget. The 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s are all decades with their own creations; some which we will never want to see returning and some which frequently do so.

For instance, this autumn there are visible influences from the 1950s and 1990s in both clothes and hair trends. Here is a classic from each decade which is worth remembering.

On the Prada runway for the autumn 2010 fashion show there was a clear 1950s inspired theme. The models were not only wearing the flared and high waist 50s skirts but their hair was also put up in the most amazing hairstyles. The look was the classic 1950s teased large bun, where the hair was slicked backwards and then put up in this massive bun. Teased hair in a bun is definitely a 50s classic worth remembering.

If you have shorter hair, or are thinking of cutting it, you will be pleased to know that one of the 1960s hair style favourites is back for this season. The cute Twiggy–like-bob is defiantly a winner this autumn!

On the contrary, if you have longer hair, get it cut in layers to be able to create that Farrah Fawcett Charlie’s Angels 1970s look. The key thing to think of when creating this style is to use volumising products and hair straighteners to be able to create those seventies waves.

This classic look, which was seen on Nicole Kidman and Whitney Houston among others, may not be in fashion at the moment, but it will probably return within a few years!

Last but not least; the 1990s was all about the boyish crop. A celebrity such as Michelle Williams has joined this returning trend with her cute and stylish crop.
