There is nothing that the world of beauty loves more than a throwback trend to get excited about. And with the pandemic pressing pause on everyday life, it comes as little surprise that we are collectively seeking solace in the comfort and familiarity of the past.

Ahead, all the comeback hair trends from the early aughts that you’ll definitely spot in your high school photo albums. Next stop: scarf tops and baguette bags.

Flip through the pages of history, and you’ll find that sky-high ponytails have been swinging around since the ’50s. Fast forward to a few decades later, and you’d have found them perched on the crown of every romcom cheerleader during the early aughts. Just ask Reese Witherspoon, took hers textured and teased out for maximum volume when she delivered her iconic line, “What, like it’s hard?” in Legally Blonde

If you’re looking to bring the look into the present decade, Khushi Kapoor recommends swapping the face-framing layers in favour of a slicked back look. And if you are feeling bold, follow Kim Kardashian’s lead and serve yours with flipped out ends—another hallmark from the Aughts.

Root around deep enough in your old drawers, and chances are you’ll snag your nail on a tic-tac clip (or 10) stashed away with your high school memorabilia. Spotted on many a 2000s icon, hair embellishments ran the gamut from dainty florals to rhinestone-studded numbers.

In its newest iteration, hair clips can be found pinned on either side of middle-parted hair for vintage-inflected chic or swiped on as a finishing touch to ponytails.

If your stay-at-home hairstyle repertoire could use an update after a year spent indoors, look to Lizzie McGuire-approved baby braids for your next Zoom party. Heavily frequented by teen idols of the Aughts, micro plaits once served as your one-stop guide to high school chic. Cut to modern-day, and they can be found framing the faces of everyone from Hailey Bieber to Gigi Hadid. While the former chose to give hers an added lift at the front, the latter opted for a face-framing iteration of bubble braids to subtly accentuate her visage.

For those feeling the nostalgia, there are several 2000s-friendly embellishments to dress up these accent braids—from pop-coloured elastics to butterfly clips.

Few things can take you back in time quicker than the smell of heated hair after a round with the flat iron. Worn poker straight to curtain the face on both sides, flat-ironed looks quickly became a favourite with socialites and celebrities for a night of glamour. While textured hairdos have ruled the trend charts for the past decade, pin-straight hair is starting to make its presence felt again. For further cues, look to Priyanka Chopra Jonas who recently stepped on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in a gilded Dolce and Gabbana gown with her hair worn stick-straight till her waist.

If you grew up in the 2000s and didn’t match your bandana to your outfit du jour, you likely had a few points docked off your cool cred. While socialites took theirs everywhere from the red carpet to glamorous getaways, girls-next-door around the world followed suit for covering up second-day hair. It comes as little surprise that bandanas have witnessed a fresh lease of life during the quarantine of the past year as the lazy girl’s go-to for looking Zoom-ready in two ticks. If you’d like to sidestep the kitschy prints of your teenage years though, pop icon Dua Lipa recommends reaching for a silk scarf instead for an elevated nod to the trend.

Also filed under every teenager’s rebel phase, dual-toned hair was all the rage during the aughts. Unlike most hair colour trends that pair harmonious hues together, the key here was to opt for contrasting colours for shock and awe—think Christina Aguilera’s multi-toned locks teamed with choppy layers.

Princess Leia’s lasting influence on pop culture can be determined by the fact that space buns never really went out of style. After spending many years on the indie scene, they are now being delivered to the mainstream spotlight with an E-girl-approved edge.
