The 2000s are back and we love them for making us look younger again - as does this playful hairstyle trend.
In 2022, the 90s and 2000s are more relevant than ever: Under the term Y2K ("year 2 kilo" = 2 kilos = 2000), many fashion and beauty lovers are again falling back on trends that stars like J.Lo or Worn Christina Aguilera on the red carpet in 2003. Back then, an updo wasn’t complete without an exciting zigzag parting or an outfit without a pair of low-waisted jeans. What may put some off is back in fashion with stars and models like Bella Hadid. Especially when it comes to hairstyles, many celebrity stylists are going back to a hair trend that is absolutely from the 2000s and makes us look younger.
Celebrities like Juno Temple or Rahel Zegler only presented the hairstyle at the last Critics' Choice Awards 2022: plucked out front strands. Also known as Tendril Hair, the strands hanging out perfectly frame the face and give it something almost romantic and floral. Since it's a nostalgic trend, it not only makes us feel younger, we also look fresher and more playful with the strands in front.
Depending on which hairstyle you want to wear the strands with, the look can be classy, cool, or playful. For example, how about an updo like model Ashley Graham or a tight bun like Bella Hadid? A half-up do or a low messy bun can also look more playful and younger with the strands in front.
And this is how it works: Simply style your favorite hairstyle and then pluck out two thin strands close to your face. You can straighten them, curl them or braid them into small braids as you wish. Fix with a styling gel or hairspray, yup: the nostalgic, rejuvenating hairstyle fits!
