There are certain classic haircuts that never go out of style. Bobs, pixie cuts, curly locks, and long hair have moved from decade to decade timelessly. But sometimes grandma would get an itch to try something new but fashionable.
#1. Hippie Braids
Long hair is essential to the hippie look, directly from the late 1960s and 1970s.
While shiny, beautiful locks are a must, you certainly don't need a precision cut or much styling, especially if your hair is naturally wavy. If you're dealing with flyaways, braiding the affected section helps to tame your tresses.
#2. Flapper-Inspired Bob

Bobbed hair has been around since the 1920s, and it's a go-to look for women who want chic but minimum-fuss hair. But for those who want to stand out, try getting an angled bob with v-shaped bangs for extra vamp appeal. To keep the ends looking edgy instead of wispy, try adding in a hint of Oribe Texturizing Spray ($48).
#3. The Afro
An Afro makes a screaming statement without you having to utter a word. It's the ultimate power 'do, and truth be told, women (and men) with African hair have been rocking this style for literally thousands of years. In more recent times, the Afro became a symbol for the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
Today, it's part of the natural hair revolution. Those with African hair simply let it grow out the way Mother Nature intended, combing it outward from the head. For anyone else with thick, curly hair, the look can be achieved with a little product and a lift at the roots.
#4. Jagged Pixie Cut-Bob Hybrid

The front of the style looks like a bob, but the back is short like a pixie cut. The long, jagged layers add some personality to the look. To give your hair more volume in the back, add a volumizing mousse, before blow-drying it with a round brush.
Though short, you’ll be surprised how versatile this hairstyle is! It can go from one-length to angled, choppy, and shaggy to sleek, with a full front fringe or lovely side bangs, or matched with a chic fashion color.
#5. Gatsby Waves

Gatsby waves produce an almost triangular silhouette to otherwise flat hair. They became one of the more distinctive variations on the classic short haircut in the 1920s.
The waves are best achieved in a couple of ways, both of them involving extensive use of stronghold hair products.
Using damp hair, apply the product, and shape into waves. Set with pins and allow to dry. You can also use a curling wand (curl hair in a single direction around your whole head in layers from the bottom to the top.) Use pins to exaggerate the places where the curl naturally falls into a wave, and hairspray to fasten.
#6. Edith Head Bob
Edith Head was the reigning designer of Old Hollywood, and channeling her bob today is seen as both edgy and a nod to the past. All you need is short full bangs, a cheek-grazing cut, and tapered ends.
#7. Flapper Bob

By the 1920s, our grandmothers were ditching their restrictive corsets and layers of tight clothing for looser clothes and shorter skirts.
Ditto the elaborate, long-haired styles of the Victorian era, which took so much time to maintain. Enter the classic bob; a carefree 'do for a new kind of lifestyle.
Cut just above the jawline, and angled towards the front, with bangs above the eyebrow line, it adds movement and shape to straight hair and highlights soft and round features.
#8. Colored Undercut

To help make your pixie cut layers pop, along with your silvery hue, consider coloring your undercut. The two-toned look is edgy, striking, and will enrich your facial features.
#9. Victory Rolls

During the Second World War, the world was in need of a boost, so stylists came up with hairstyles that were swept up away from the face in an iconic victory roll. It gets its name from the aileron roll (where a plane will perform a 360-degree flip), inspired directly by the war efforts in Germany.
Today it is featured as a classic pinup look that adds volume to long hair and draws the eye upwards.
#10. The Gibson Girl Hairstyle
An alternative to the top bun, the Gibson Girl look is both soft and messy. First, draw your hair upwards into a loose bun. It's a popular look at weddings as there can be many variations: it can be rolled back from the face or swept back with loose tendrils and ringlets around the face.
This romantic look takes its namesake from illustrator Charles Gibson and his drawings. In the 1890s, his illustrations of the "supposed ideal woman" were widely published across the U.S.A.
