Go Retro with  Yesteryear Hairdos

Go Retro with Yesteryear Hairdos

20 Sep 2013

Take a trip down memory lane as these once not-so-cool hair trends are making a comeback!

Every trend comes back around, and it seems the same applies to the hair crazes of the past that we thought were well forgotten about. Cue the return of the scrunchie, the beehive and all things vintage! From the runways to Celebville, everyone is taking inspiration from their childhood years. We take a peek at who’s pulling it off!  

Bunches
Although these days Gwen Stefani is known for her bright red lips and platinum blonde hair,  back in the Nineties we loved her bunches, which she wore frequently. A simple method to creating a natural wave soon became a fashion trend with people tying up their hair in small mounds. This year we’ve seen Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora sport the style, and back in the day it made Britney Spears a household name! 

Big Bows
Another vintage trend to make a splash this year is the bow. Inspired by the similar Sixties look, the bow trend is taking off in Celebville. Zooey Deschanel, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Bella Thorne love it, and we all saw Lady Gaga take it to an extreme with her oversized bow! Whether you prefer clips of hair bands, this trend is girly and cute. 

Scarves 
Bowed or knotted around the head, scarves became a staple accessory this year when Dolce & Gabbana showed a vintage inspired version of the look in their S/S13 collection. The beautiful Sicilian printed scarves were styled to hold an up-do, which looked stunning and very Fifties chic. Eva Mendes and Alessandra Ambrosio soon caught on and have often been spotted upgrading their outfits with simple headscarves.

Scrunchies
We won’t lie; here at team Ahlan! we were totally excited when we first saw Cara Delevingne wearing a scrunchie! The surprise hair trend was formally known for being anti-chic, but after appearing on the catwalk at Ashish and Vivienne Westwood this Eighties geek-chic trend is back! Katy Perry and Demi Lovato have also been encouraging the controversial look. We say wear your scrunchie with pride!
