Delightful Hairstyles History Has Forgotten

Since the overall dress code has become far more casual in the 21st century younger generations will grow up unaware of all the fun people used to have with their hair.

There will probably be a few hairdo revivals as future fashion trends are informed by styles of the past, but many cool hairstyles will most likely never come back because they're too much work to maintain.

Styles like the Beehive, Pompadour, Bouffant, Ducktail and Victory Roll were more than just classic 'dos- they were a sign of the times and set the stylish apart from the squares.
