Sometimes a person, be him/her real or fictional, wears something so iconic that he or she will forever be associated with that certain style. Our focus today is specifically hairstyles. Every decade, there will always be a haircut that will stand out among the rest.
It’s sometimes popularised by fashion-forward celebs, and sometimes it just became popular because it’s something their characters have spotted for so long that it’s basically became their signature look. Without further ado, check them out below!
