Like fashion, hairstyles can make their mark on an era — like the beehive of the '50s, the Jackie O bob of the ‘60s, the flippy layers of the ‘70s, and those hair-sprayed bangs of the '80s. And let’s not forget the iconic Rachel cut of the ‘90s or the chunky highlights and layers of the 2000s. Some ‘dos can totally transport us back to the past.
