Iconic ‘Dos Over the Decades: Get Inspired by the Era-Defining Styles | Best Flat Iron 2019

Some say to leave the past in the past. A sound decision when it comes to exes, not so necessary when it comes to your 'do. There are some great looks from back in the day, and why should we let them fade away? Today we're highlighting some particularly standout styles from past decades that you should feel free to wear all day every day.


'50s Short and Sultry


What icon embodies the 1950s like Marilyn Monroe? Her style continues to be idolized and duplicated 60 years later. And her beautiful platinum 'dos are what people love most. But even if you aren't dying to go platinum, you can still capture the essence of this sultry '50s look. Just start with our Root Work - Root Lifter to give your locks that voluminous, full-of-body foundation. After blow-drying, grab your NuMe Magic Curling Wand. This magical tool with a 100-percent titanium barrel is designed to lock in your hair's natural moisture for curls that are as soft as they are bouncy. Then work that flirty '50s fabulousness.


'60s Mod Bob


A '60s-inspired bob with bangs and blunt edges? Yes, please! Whether for work or play, this retro 'do is never really out of fashion. Getting your mod bob on is easy with the Megastar Hair Straightener. With one-inch ceramic plates, it's ideal for creating the sleek look this style demands. Top off this lil' dynamo with our Gloss Boss - Serum, filled with nutrient-rich oils that add shine and tame frizz, leaving you with a bob that's truly bangin' (pun intended).


'70s Free 'Fro


The '70s saw an embrace of natural hair and textures with the popularity of the afro. From tightly curled and perfectly shaped to loosely textured and uninhibited, afros took on all shapes and sizes. And today, they've made a strong comeback as people once again choose to rock what Mother Nature gave them. For the blown-out 'fro, rub some of the Watch Me Work - Thermal Heat Protectant onto strands to protect them from heat styling while simultaneously nourishing your hair for a healthy, glowing look. Finish with NuMe Argan Oil to enhance shine and keep strands moisturized. Then turn some heads.


'80s Crimp Crush


Oh, the '80s. It might be the decade with the most styles that we'd all prefer to retire permanently. And while you thought crimps might be one of them, they are rockable today, if you know how to do them right. First, dry your hair with our Bold Hair Dryer (because if your style is going to be bold, your dryer should be, too). With its negative ion conditioning and far infrared heat, it will give you a fantastic blowout with incredible shine and volume. After crimping to your retro heart's content, spritz some Hair-Fie Ready Finishing and Shine Spray on for flexible hold and shine. And your '80s look is complete. The acid-wash jeans and neon jellies are optional.


'80s Curl Craze


Another cornerstone of the '80s was the perm. Everyone either had a curly perm or knew someone who did. And while we might not want to go back to that look, a softer, all-over curl is totally doable and quite luscious by today's standards. Start with our Rise and Prime - Hair Primer to protect and nourish your strands without weighing hair down. It's also an excellent way of ensuring your styles go the distance, and with all these curls, you'll want this look to last. Next, grab the Classic Curling Wand—which comes in three different sizes—to create your poppin' curls. Curly bangs will give you the ultimate '80s vibes. So rad.

If there’s one complaint curly-haired people have, it’s that their curls just don’t stay put. They may use rollers or curling irons to ensure each curl is perfectly perky, but it seems as if as soon as they turn around….
