    50 vintage beauty trends that are back again

    50 vintage beauty trends that are back again

    Good Housekeeping
    Samantha Escobar 14 hrs ago.. (*yes Ms Escobar is baaack.. fresh from telling us which 1980's trends needed to vanish from history.. i'm a bit confuzzled by some of her comparisons and also her use of the word Vintage, especially referring to the 1990's as vintage?).



    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Beehives

    Next time you go out with friends, channel your inner girl with big, beautiful beehives like The Ronettes.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Beehives

    If you're headed to a black-tie event, throw on a pair of elegant earrings and a smokey eye to go with your sky-high 'do.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Winged Eyeliner


    If you could pick just one product that defined '60s beauty, it would be eyeliner. In particular, winged eyeliner that extended a half-inch or so past the eyes, giving eyes a sexy, dreamy shape.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Winged Eyeliner

    Winged liner now comes in all styles, shades, and shapes, but this beauty look will always be classic.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Wide Headbands

    Wearing a wide headband with a voluminous hairstyle plus winged liner was a staple beauty look of Brigitte Bardot.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Wide Headbands

    Wide headbands are still the perfect way to get a sexy retro look that keeps your bangs out of your face.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Full, Filled Brows

    Thick, lush brows that perfectly framed the face were treasured rather than tweezed.




    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Full, Filled Brows

    After over-plucked brows came and went in the '90s and '00s, full brows finally made their beautiful comeback.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Red Lipstick

    There's nothing that says "classic beauty" quite like red lipstick.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Red Lipstick

    If you want to make a splash, go for a true-blue red like Charlize's. Curl your lashes and add mascara to keep your eyes looking awake and defined.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Platinum Blonde

    When Marilyn Monroe was the one rocking this shade, everyone suddenly preferred blondes.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Platinum Blonde

    Touchable, soft, and just as stunning as ever, platinum blonde hair in big, beautiful waves is trendier than ever.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Pixie Cuts

    With stars like Mia Farrow and Twiggy cropping their locks, it's no wonder so many women went short in the '60s.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Pixie Cuts

    Very little has changed with this cut — because it doesn't have to! It's simple, sweet, and eternally chic.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Pillbox Hat

    Jackie Kennedy looked elegant her whole life, so it makes sense that trends she popularised are still big today. This simple, chic accessory is no exception.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Pillbox Hat

    They're back! A round, structured hat lends a vintage flair to any simple fall outfit. Just make sure to pin it to your hair if it's windy outside.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Headband Updos

    Adding some flair to your hair was practically a requisite of '60s babes.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Headband Updos

    Headbands aren't just for workouts! Pop a thin headband around your updo for a cute, quick accessory.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Gelled Hair

    Don't you miss the days when every guy knew how to properly comb his hair? The oh-so-handsome Paul Newman was just one of the stars who styled with wax.




    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Gelled Hair

    After decades of hair metal and bad bowl cuts, men's hair has finally gone back to this neat, chic style.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Long False Eyelashes

    Sixties supermodel Twiggy was known for her gaze. And the look wouldn't have been complete without her trademark long, false lashes.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Long False Eyelashes

    Don't like liner or mascara? Try these as an easy substitute. Fake lashes define your eyes in one easy step — no clumps, no smudges





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Cut Crease Eyeshadow

    The name for this eye makeup style might be unfamiliar, but you've surely seen it a lot. In the 1960s, the most famous wearer was actress Diahann Carroll, who kept her eyes smokey and the rest of her style subtle.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Cut Crease Eyeshadow

    Always mixing the modern with the vintage, Jennifer Lopez combines this sexy look with shimmery shades that make her brown eyes sparkle.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Cowboy Hats

    Nothing makes you feel quite as cool as a cowboy hat. And with the Spaghetti Western craze of the mid-1960s, it makes sense that everybody suddenly wanted to look like John Wayne.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Cowboy Hats

    A little less dusty, a little more dapper: The new cowboy hat can be perfectly paired with a dress or a T-shirt and jeans.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Cat Eye Frames

    Glasses can be stylish, but no other frame shape ever looked as cool as the cat eye.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Cat Eye Frames

    These aren't your mother's cat eye glasses! Take your eyewear game to the next level by going bright or duo-toned.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Bouffant

    With her full pout and even fuller hair, Brigitte Bardot rocked the '60s with this voluminous look.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Bouffant

    Tons of volume, plenty of curl, and face-framing layers: The bouffant is still a style worthy of a truly glamorous diva.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Underarm Hair

    That's right: Celebs didn't always shave their underarms! Classic beauties like Sophia Loren opted out of the razor game.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Underarm Hair

    After decades of all-over hair removal, more women than ever are going back to the sans-shaving mindset. We have it for a reason, after all.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Blunt Bangs

    With her iconic haircut, music legend Joni Mitchell helped propel a decade-long love for lengthy locks paired with blunt bangs.




    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Blunt Bangs

    Here, supermodel Tyra Banks shows that this sleek style is just as cool as ever.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Face Gems

    The 1970s featured a lot of funky trends, including wearing sparkles on one's face. After all, how else would you stand out at the disco?



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Face Gems

    Face shimmer is back, but with a little twist: Rather than simple round sequins, the sparkles are now star-shaped.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Center-Parted Hair

    Who didn't love Marcia's hair on The Brady Bunch? Perfectly parted with just a hint of a wave around her face, it was the ultimate '70s hairstyle.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Center-Parted Hair

    Dubbed "rich girl hair" by NY Mag, the simple center-part is back in full force.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Pastel Eyeshadow

    Opaque eyeshadow is a tough look to pull off, but if you take a page from this 1975 CoverGirl ad and stick with mascara only — you'll nail it.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Pastel Eyeshadow

    As this model from the Sally LaPointe Spring 2015 show proves, bold pastel eyeshadow is once again gorgeous. Choose a matte texture for a soft, modern look.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Blonde Bobs

    She was called Blondie for a reason. Along with her melodious voice, Debbie Harry was also known for her perfect platinum bob.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Blonde Bobs

    These days, singer Rita Ora is owning the blonde hair look, with a stunning pale shade that makes her face positively sparkle.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Hair Flowers

    If anything epitomized the carefree hippie look of the late '60s and early '70s, it was the hair flower. Bonus: It was both beautiful and feminine.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Hair Flowers

    This time around, the look is much subtler. Smaller buds, like the ones in Marchesa's Fall 2015 bridal collection, are perfect for weddings and summertime parties.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Sun-Kissed Cheeks

    Moving away from the mod makeup looks of the '60s, the '70s signaled the rise of more simpler, sun-kissed faces à la supermodel Janice Dickinson.



    ©Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Sun-Kissed Cheeks

    After the crazy 1980s colors and experimental 1990s trends, we're back to desiring this sweet and healthy glow.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Graphic Liner

    Vocalist Siouxsie Sioux of British band Siouxsie and the Banshees caused a stir with her big, bold eyebrows and graphic eyeliner.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Graphic Liner

    With liner being more versatile and easy to use than ever, there's no reason not to experiment with your eye makeup in 2015. Try a variety of shapes to see which complements your eyes the best.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Full Afros

    In the early 1970s, actress Pam Grier starting rocking a gorgeous, full Afro that became her signature look.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Full Afros

    Although relaxed hair was very popular in the 1990s and 2000s, the 2010s saw a rise in blogs, products, and celebrities celebrating natural hair textures.
    Here, Solange embraces her fuller hair while walking the red carpet.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Feathered Layers

    When someone mentions "feathered hair," Farrah Fawcett is often the first name to come to mind. Seriously, her long, wispy layers were every woman's dream hairstyle in the '70s.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Feathered Layers

    Jennifer Lawrence and other celebs are still loving layers with lots of body, though the amount of feathering is a bit more tame these days.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Purple Eyeshadow

    The '70s were all about pastels and the '90s featured tons of blue, but in the 1980s women wore lots of bold purples and pinks.
    By far the most flattering eyeshadow trend, it contrasts with all eye colors to make your irises stand out.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Purple Eyeshadow

    Today's version is a little more blended and iridescent. Even better: The purple smokey eye is perfect for a sexy nighttime look.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Messy Topknot

    As seen in this spectacularly pretty photo, Iman proves that sweet, chic buns right at the top of the head were huge among women in the 1980s.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Messy Topknot

    And they're still going strong. Now the ultimate lazy day hairstyle, the topknot made a comeback due to its simplicity and easygoing elegance.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Two-Toned Hair Color


    Leave it up to Cher to set the bar high (and a little wild) when it comes to hair trends. This bold look combined a short, spiky cut with a funky blonde-and-black dye job.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Two-Toned Hair Color

    Two-toned hair is now more subtle (see Kaley Cuoco's version). But with Cruella de Vil hair gaining some steam, expect for things to get more intense à la '80s Cher.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Natural Brows

    Following a decade of over-plucked, '80s brows were left untouched — celebrated for their naturally bushy beauty.


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Natural Brows

    Gone are the pencil-thin brows of the 1990s and the sharply angled shapes of the 2000s. These days, eyebrows are considered prettiest when barely touched. A little shaping and filling is fine when keeping with their natural shape and thickness.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Blonde and Gelled Pixies

    Stylish short cuts — especially bleached blonde — were worn by women and men alike, including Annie Lennox, Madonna, and Billy Idol.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Blonde and Gelled Pixies

    Even in 2015, few hairstyles make quite the same impact as a closely-cropped blonde 'do.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Neon Hair Colors

    Who could've possibly gotten through the '80s without a heaping helping of Manic Panic, after all?



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Neon Hair Colors

    Well, would you look at that! Cyndi Lauper, now 62, is still totally leading the trendy pack with her pink hair.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Eyeliner on Guys

    With his dark eyes and occasional red lips, The Cure frontman Robert Smith popularized goth makeup for men during the 1980s.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Eyeliner on Guys

    Oscar-winning heartthrob Jared Leto has helped bring the guyliner trend back to life with his smudged smokey eye. Plus, one recent study showed that a surprising 10% of guys wear makeup when going out.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Piecey, Straight Bangs

    Though she's known for her wild, spiky hair, Tina Turner once rocked this gorgeous, more subtle 'do in the early 1980s.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Piecey, Straight Bangs

    This modern, slightly shaggy style with bangs has recently been worn by the likes of Kerry Washington, Taylor Swift, and Dianna Agron. Its flattering layers make it the perfect haircut for heart-shaped faces.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Men With Ponytails

    Steven Seagal did it, so naturally, tons of action movie-loving guys followed suit.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Men With Ponytails

    The '90s touted some long-haired looks for men, but the ponytail didn't fully return until this decade. Now, stars including Brad Pitt, Jared Leto, and Chris Hemsworth have all rocked an elastic around their hair.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Orange Eyeshadow

    Bright eyeshadow wasn't just popular on the punk scene. Orange lips, cheeks, and eyes were a staple of Joan Collins' glamorous Dynasty look.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Orange Eyeshadow

    Rather than the ultra-bright shade of the '80s, the more modern version of orange shadow veers towards a metallic copper. Bonus: It's an unexpectedly flattering shade on all eye colors.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Dark Brows, Light Hair

    Platinum blonde hair was huge due to trendsetters like Madonna, and she didn't care if it looked natural. Dark brows define the eyes, so keeping them this shade only enhances the overall look.


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Dark Brows, Light Hair

    Though the shift is slightly more subtle than in the '80s, the dark brows, light hair look is back and better than ever as women embrace their natural eyebrow shades while still having fun with their hair color. Simply groom your brows if you want more polish.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Funky Lipstick Colors

    Always a trailblazer, singer Cyndi Lauper wore bright, unconventional shades of lipstick, bringing her creative style to mainstream audiences.


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Funky Lipstick Colors

    Who would have imagined this wild look would make such a huge return? High-fashion runways, including Ann Yee's for the Fall/Winter 2014 season (left), which featured blue lips, leading to women everywhere scrambling to find the perfect shades of blue, purple, and even green.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Mohawk

    Thanks to teens on the '70s and '80s punk scene, this anti-establishment hairstyle was all the rage. But they didn't just stop at shaved sides and spikey tips, they also dyed it in bright, wild shades.


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Mohawk

    Soft, conditioned, and with far less product, the mohawk of 2015 — seen here on Kelly Osbourne — is far more pretty than its predecessor.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Nude Lipstick

    Everyone (including IT '90s supermodel Kate Moss) was rocking opaque, glossy neutral shades.





    © Provided by Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Nude Lipstick

    Nude lip colors are now much more wearable. Stick to sheer or semi-glossy versions to keep your pout looking subtle and pretty.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Flower Clips

    Drew Barrymore worked the flowers-in-the-hair look years before any celeb stepped foot at Coachella.

    Bonus: Drew's also flaunting a lovely berry red lip that's still right on trend today. Just make sure to follow this trick so your lipstick never rubs off on your teeth.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Flower Clips

    While the giant flower crowns we're seeing all over college campuses may not be your thing, you can still try out this trend by wearing a simple floral headband like Keira Knightley's.
    Keep your makeup neutral for a more natural look.







    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Metallic Eyeshadow

    Spice Girl Mel B (aka Scary Spice) never shied away from a bold fashion (or makeup!) trend. And that includes the shimmery eyeshadow she wore all the way up to her brows, here.


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Metallic Eyeshadow

    Metallic eye makeup has been all over red carpets and runways in the past year. Case in point: This sparkly look from the Barbara Bui Spring/Summer 2015 show.
    If you want something that's more subtle and summer-ready, stick to warmer rose gold shades and skip any liner.







    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Visible Roots

    During the '90s, stars like Courtney Love, Kate Moss, and Drew Barrymore popularized the grunge-y chicness of not hiding your roots.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Visible Roots

    Nowadays, visible roots still look great when styled with a smooth, sleek blowout — just make sure you don't wait too long before touching them up.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Chokers

    Everywhere you looked in the '90s, somebody (including Melissa Joan Hart as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) was wearing this stretchy choker necklace.


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Chokers

    Give this accessory a modern makeover by picking a piece that's on the wider side with elegant embellishments.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Feathered Shag

    While "The Rachel" may be the number one haircut we think of when it comes to the '90s, Meg Ryan's classic feathered style is a close second.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Feathered Shag

    If you still love this shaggy, layered hairdo but want a more modern take, go for a long layered bob — around shoulder length — and add subtle ombre highlights throughout.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: French Manicure

    If you got a manicure in the '90s, chances are you had French tips at least once.


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: French Manicure

    With nail art and DIY manicures exploding over the past several years, women have gotten more creative with this classic design. Here, Jennifer Lopez rocks an iridescent base color with a scarlet French tip.






    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Berry Lips

    This was the most '90s of lip colors. Here, Ashley Judd wears it with a feathered pixie, another popular trend from the time.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Berry Lips

    As grunge style makes its way back into the mainstream, so has this deep shade of lipstick. For a sultry take, pair your berry lips with smokey gray eye makeup like Megan Fox, here.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Blue Eyeshadow

    Who could forget the frosty blue eyeshadow that everybody wore in the 1990s? Of all the decade's beauty trends, this one seemed destined to be left behind forever. And yet...


    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Blue Eyeshadow

    Blue eyeshadow got a big update after being reimagined in more modern shades. We're loving the azure hue Lupita Nyong'o wears here.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Pink Highlights

    Though she's primarily known for her platinum blonde locks, Gwen Stefani and numerous other '90s celebs dyed their strands bold shades of pink.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Pink Highlights

    Rainbow shades are back. But rather than going full-throttle hot pink, celebrities like January Jones have opted for pastel blush shades instead.





    © Good Housekeeping

    THEN: Frosted Lipstick

    Not only did Pamela Anderson rock the thin brows, bottle blonde hair, and shimmery shadow the decade was famous for, she was also a big fan of frosted lipstick.



    © Good Housekeeping

    NOW: Frosted Lipstick

    After years of matte and satin textures taking over the red carpet, frosted lips have finally returned. This time, they're softer and sheerer, like this baby pink shade worn by Taylor Swift at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

    I read the title as "50's vintage beauty trends" and then thought where the hell are the ones from the 50's

    This is not only the dumbest thing I've read all day, but it also sounds like some little old granny is flicking through a bunch of gossip mags from 2006 looking for anything "modern".
