Hair trends, just like fashion trends, definitely have their ups and downs. There are some that leave you absolutely in love and wanting more (remember The Rachel?!) while others leave you wondering what the heck you were even thinking. Some trends are long past but some of these are happening now! Check out our list on some of the not-so-hot hairstyles I’ve come to hate.
Baby bangs have gone in and out of style throughout the years and really, they should stay out. It’s a look that hardly any woman can pull off and growing them out is a painful process. If you still want to try out the look but aren’t sure it’s for you, try some clip-in bangs for fun.
Ombré hair was a huge hair trend from 2011 and well into 2012. Like many trends, it was celebrities and young starlets that first started rocking the color gradient look, which was a surprise to many. After all, letting your roots grow out used to be a style faux pas and now, ladies everywhere have been rushing to their stylist and paying for that grown-out look. We’re more than happy to see a return to natural hair color and bid the ombré hair trend goodbye.
The 80s were filled with hair trends that I’ve now come to hate and one of the most popular has to be the perm. The tight spiral curl that more often than not led to big poofs, is hardly a look anyone would want nowadays.
Remember the thick, high-contrast highlights that were a big trend in the early 2000s? Well thankfully, the “skunk” stripes are long gone! Highlights are still OK, just remember to veer toward a more natural look.
The Side Shave
Women and shaved hairstyles are two things that just do not mix. Yet somehow, the side shave, a cut that shaves one side of the head and leaves the locks on the other side long and free, has become totally mainstream. Celebrities like Miley Cyrus, fashion bloggers and models have all been spotted with the new look, but it’s one trend I just can’t wait to see go away!
Have you noticed a pattern in the hairstyles that end up going down in history as awful trends? They’re all highly unnatural looks! If you’re not sure whether or not to embrace a hair trend, just ask yourself how natural of a style it really is. The more unnatural it is (like chunky highlights) the more likely the trend will fall fast out of fashion.
