Best Hair Trends of the 2000s

In the ’80s it was all about scrunched curls, giant bangs and, uh, Flock of Seagulls hair. Then in the ’90s you had shaggy cuts, tons of volume and, of course, The Rachel. So what hair trends will the first decade of the 2000s be remembered for?

How about totally sexy beachy waves, a resurgence of hair accessories (some of which were a bit of a throwback to the ’80s, go figure), and embracing your natural hair texture? There were also lots of other trends, but you’ll have to click here to see the full list of the best hair trends of the 2000s.

Overall, the hair trends of this decade might not stand out as some of the wackiest or unique of all time, but that’s OK. Instead of wearing a hairstyle because it’s trendy or cool, we’re seeing people getting haircuts that are — wait for it — flattering to their face shape and hair type. What a novel idea, right?

Sure, these hairstyles might not stop traffic, but they will leave you feeling absolutely fabulous when you look in the mirror. And we think that’s the most important factor in choosing a haircut.

Wondering which celebrities are showing off the best hair trends? These lovely ladies: Jessica Alba, Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Aniston (yep, she’s a trendsetter in this decade too), Victoria Beckham, Katie Holmes, Emily Blunt, Dakota Fanning, Reese Witherspoon, Ashley Greene, Christina Hendricks, Hayden Panettiere, Kim Kardashian, Kristen Bell and AnnaLynne McCord.

Now, we know you’re dying to see what all the best hair trends are, so without further ado (yeah, we said ado), click here to see the best hair trends of the 2000s.
