Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty crazy hairstyles. We’ve also seen a few unique, amazing hairdos that have stood the test of time. To celebrate our mad love for all things hair, we decided to take a look back on some of the most memorable hairstyles in the last 20 years.
1. The Rachel
She’ll be there for you – if you’re from the 90’s! Who didn’t want to be Rachel Green? She was the queen of wit and sarcastic grace and was beautiful and popular, much like her real life counterpart, Jennifer Aniston. This famous “Rachel” hairstyle was incredibly popular in the late 90’s. It’s short, choppy, and most importantly, ridiculously easy to take care of. We vote to bring it back – how about you?
2. The Pitt
Before Michelle Williams and Ginnifer Goodwin sported their sexy pixie cuts, we 90’s gals knew it as “The Pitt”. Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow famously wore this hairstyle during their time as Hollywood power couple (you know, pre-Bey and Jay).
3. The Baby One More Time
You can’t have a list of memorable hairstyles without throwing a little Britney in the mix. Her “Baby One More Time” braids became an instant hit (pun intended). Between the bright pink ribbon and pastel pink fluff on top, how can you go wrong?
4. The Gisele
Gisele Bündchen brought waves into the new century with her classic ’00 look. The beachy-look had been around for quite some time, but made waves after she strutted her stuff on the runway with these sexy locks.
5. The Sex and the City
As we entered the new century, we found ourselves leaving behind the sultry tresses of Gisele to chase after the short, sleek style of none other than Miss Carrie Bradshaw.
6. The Ombre
When it comes to memorable hairstyles, ombre would be one that has had it’s turn in the spotlight more than once. Before it resurfaced in the early 2010s, it was popular in the early 2000s with pop divas like Britney, Christina, and of course, Jessica Simpson.
7. The Bob Kat
When Katie Holmes chopped off her luscious locks in 07, we all had a minor panic attack. Luckily, it didn’t last long once we realized the powers of the face-framing bob. Toss in a little blunt side fringe and you’ve got a chic, celebrity style.
8. The Gaga Bow
We just couldn’t resist putting this memorable hairstyle on our list. Lady Gaga wore this large and in charge hair bow in 2009, proving once and for all that hairstyles can be a big statement piece if you let them!
9. The Hair Whip
Willow Smith taught us a valuable lesson in 2010 – it’s okay to whip your hair back and forth! Whether you were a fan of the song or not, you have to appreciate the mad creativity in this memorable hairstyle. We wish we were that cool that young.
