The term “vintage” applies to items or trends between 20 and 100 years old (after that, they’re “antique”). So with the arrival of 2020, your favorite ‘90s styles are technically vintage — including the face framing tendrils that seem to have made a major comeback. In fact, eight of the 31 winter hairstyles to try, below, feature face framing tendrils or their cousin, ear framing tendrils.
Vintage-inspired or not, framing your face in any way is cool this season, as evidenced by the smooth edges and bedazzled baby hairs seen on Gabrielle Union, Lupita Nyong’o, and model Joyjah Estrada; or the trés français bangs worn by influencers Alyssa Coscarelli and Sophia Roe (curly) and actress Hilary Duff (wispy). But what’s even cooler? Making a literal statement with your hairstyle. On Jan. 8, stylist Justine Marjan released a rhinestone bobby pin in collaboration with Kitsch, emblazoned with the word “VOTE.” 100 percent of proceeds will go to nonpartisan organization When We All Vote in anticipation of the 2020 election. Expect celebrity sightings soon — Marjan’s clients include Ashley Graham, Khloé Kardashian, Olivia Culpo, and Ashely Tisdale.
Ahead, 31 hairstyles to try this winter, no matter what your vibe — vintage or modern, low-key or high fashion, registered to vote or about to be.
