Style historian Dr. James R. Hulsey of the University of Texas at Austin says hairstyles that were popular in the ’90’s were now getting more attention.
He says they include a variety of styles, including simple hairstyles like dreadlocks, black curly hair and beards.
Hurlings, also known as ‘sashay’ or ‘dressed to impress’, are hairstyles with short, straight hair.
Hops are also popular, with short curly hair worn with a long, flowing headband.
A ‘floppy’ style is also gaining popularity.
Hauling and driving are also more popular, said Hulley, who is also a professor of anthropology at Texas A&M University.
Hurdles and bobbing hairstyles are also gaining more prominence.
In addition to a number of hairstyles popular in earlier decades, Hulson said he also sees a trend in which women are wearing a ‘bronco’ hairstyle that is typically shorter, longer or wavy.
Dr. Hulsons research also indicates that people have become more aware of hair care, particularly for their hairstyles.
Dr Hulsson said while some people may still prefer a short straight haircut, that trend is now changing and women are more interested in a longer hairstyle.
“A lot of women are interested in shorter haircuts, and it is a trend that is happening in the community,” he said.
He said while shorter hair is still a must for a woman, she now wants to get shorter and be more ‘look-able.’
Dr. Rhea Smith, a hairstylist at the University Of Victoria, said she is noticing a lot of interest in hairstyles in the recent past.
Smith said people are becoming more conscious of how their hairstyle is styled, with styles like the short straight, ponytail or bob hairstyle being more popular.
“There is a lot more attention on hairstyles than it used to be, and people are also really aware of their hair and how it looks,” she said.
Dr Smith said she thinks people are trying to wear more natural styles.
“We’re going to have to be a little more attuned to how we wear our hair,” she added.
She said a lot has changed since the early days of the ’80s.
“People are more conscious and they’re trying to be more creative with their style,” she told ABC News.
