TikTok Made Us Do It: 2020’s Most Viral Hair Trends & How To Recreate Them

Merry simp season and a happy new year (2021, do better!)—it’s time to round up the hair trends that helped us through quite literally the weirdest year ever. Here’s a quick recap: Curtain bangs, lava streaks and bouncy layers proved that we would all rather throw it back to the ’90s and ’60s then live in the moment—funkier hair, simpler times. Oh, and is there anything that screams “main character energy” more than having a DIY bangs moment in quarantine with a pair of drugstore scissors? Nope.

 

Keep scrollin’ for BTC’s year in review (TikTok edition!), plus how you can recreate every look that will make you say, “That’s so 2020.” BTW, click here to follow us on the app for fire hair content!
