5 Hairstyles From Past Centuries You’ll Want To Avoid

Using hair extensions comes with its own set of rules. It’s important not to be thrifty, to avoid synthetic options, and to keep up with current trends. The practice of hair extensions has been around for years, but it may be time for some people to give it a rest.

Choosing the wrong shade or length can lead to frustration, resulting in ‘bad hair days’ regularly.

The Mullet

Who thought coming up with the mullet was a good idea? Interestingly, its roots can be traced back to the 19th century when fishermen grew out the back of their hair for warmth. Despite its practical origins, the mullet became a popular style in the 1980s, leaving many looking like walking mops.

Even some well-known celebrities sported this haircut, likely a look they’d rather forget.

The Farrah Fawcett’s Feathered Hair

Farrah Fawcett’s feathered hairstyle from the ’70s and ’80s was iconic. During the glamorous disco era, both men and women adopted this look. However, replicating this style today might make you stand out in a less favorable way.

This historical hairdo might be best left in the past. You wouldn’t want to seek shelter every time it rains or be reliant on a plethora of hair products for upkeep.


The 1960s introduced the beehive hairstyle, which defied belief with its impressive height, seemingly constructed purely from hair.

This iconic hairstyle has outlasted many other ’60s trends and has maintained its unique appeal. It’s easy to see why it’s associated with Amy Winehouse’s outrageous style.

The Undercut

The purpose of the undercut hairstyle remains somewhat enigmatic. First appearing in the early 20th century, it saw a resurgence in the 1940s and inexplicably resurfaced in the 2010s.

While it may seem fashionable initially, maintaining the style becomes a challenge as the shorter hair grows out, leaving you with the decision of cutting it or letting it grow.

The Pageboy

This 20th-century original hairstyle is named after the medieval pageboy. It requires straight, silky hair and typically includes a straight fringe, creating a tomboyish look. Today, very few individuals, regardless of gender, would be seen sporting this style.

Today, only young kids might appreciate this look, whereas in the past, even fathers and grandfathers were seen with this hairstyle.
