The trend in popular hairstyles can be summed up in one word:
1920's - The most popular hairstyles can be taken from a variety of decades across the 20th century. One of the most feminine to pop up is the wavy or shingled bob hair style.
This look is characterized by smooth waves originating from the roots of hair into curled under styles. Although it may seem that you can only create this look if you have chin-length hair, this style can be achieved with long hair also. Hollywood hairstylist Ken Paves showed on Oprah how to do this hair style. I have broken it down step-by-step for you. Click here to learn

Hair Accessories have become all the rage again. If you simply don't have the time or patience to spend on your hair, try a hair flower, or a headband, and you instantly have a great looking hairdo. Many celebrities are using hair flowers these days in their red carpet looks. The headbands that seem to be in fashion are either the wide kind with tails, or the kind with crystals, or jewels embossed on them.
1960's - The 1960's bouffant styles have shown up again in big hair that is created by back-combing. While it is not in-vogue to back-comb the entire head making what we call, “helmet head”, it is in style to back-comb the top of the head to create height and volume to your style. We combined this style with a Sedu look. Click Bouffant Hair to learn this style.
The 1960's High Ponytail hairstyle is also making a comeback. Add some hoop earrings and false eye lashes for a great evening-out look.
And of course, it would not be the 60's without a Beehive Hairstyle - Try this modern variation with a wide headband.
1970's - Variations of popular hairstyles of the 1970's are back. Hair should be cut so that it is layered down the sides of your face and curled or flicked up and back with a flat iron. This style is similar to the Charlie's Angels look that you may remember if you were around then.
Create this Seventies Hairstyle.
The seventies were also a decade of long, stick straight hair. Remember the Brady Bunch? Today, this style is made sleek and shiny through the use of the flat iron. They are commonly referred to as Sedu styles. These hairstyles last for the long-haul because the flat irons straighten hair like nothing else.

1980's - 1980's hairstyles have seen a major surge in men's hair with the mohawk and spikes. Yet, it is also common to see some “softened” punk rock styles in women. Instead of the high bangs common in the 80's, long bangs flowing to one side gently over one eye is quite common. Yet, the most popular expression seen is women coloring their hair in deep shades of brown and black. The term “Emo” has become a popular way of describing these types of hairstyles.
