The smell of chemicals and hair dye fill the room. Pieces of cut hair are scattered across the tile floor. The ringing bell sounds as customers enter the salon. Magazines and products are in the front for people to grab and keep them busy. The loud sound of cutting hair enters my ears.
Hairstyles for women have changed tremendously over the past years, since 2010 to 2018. Many of these styles have made lots of women more confident and happy, and others not as much. A lot of these “trends” have made men more or less attracted to their girlfriend or wife, depending on the way they changed their hair.
“I think the best generation of women’s hairstyles was in 2017.” - Braeden Davis. In 2017, hairstyles ranged from space buns and stylish bobs to long, wavy hair. Ombré was also a big trend in this year, with girls dying their locks top to bottom shading from dark to light. This year, along with 2017, were the ones that started accepting women of color with natural hair. In the years before, natural hair wasn’t really accepted in society and black women were frequently pressured into perming, straightening, and blow drying their hair to make it “pretty.”
“2012 or 2011 were definitely the worst years of hairstyles.” - Naomi Boone. Back in this era, many young women would have a bang covering over one of their eyes. There was also many short, sort-of pixie cut looks. Lots of middle aged women cut their hair shorter, such as P!nk, Miley Cyrus, and Halle Berry.
“In my opinion, 2018 is going to be the year for a new, fresh look in women’s hair.”
