Which decade has the most iconic hairstyles?

Crimps, perms and teases - oh my! A new survey has revealed that the 1980s were officially the most iconic decade for hair. The survey asked 2,000 American women about their hairstyle journeys throughout the years and found the 80s to be the best decade for 'dos. After the 1980s, respondents crowned the runner ups as the 1990s and 1970s, respectively. But throughout the years, women's relationships with their hair have been far from perfect. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Hair Biology, the survey found that the average woman has experienced four completely botched hairstyles over the years, six different haircut styles and four dye jobs. And throughout the years, women shared the top change that women have seen in their hair as they've aged is dryness and overall damage, both at 41%. A further 35% of women polled shared their hair also doesn't hold styling quite like it used to back in the day, so it's no surprise that 28% of women polled are starting to feel frustrated with their hair. Half of women surveyed also said they're currently in a hairstyle rut and don't know what to do but 49% said they're too scared to try something new. And speaking of all-time favorites, respondents were also asked to pinpoint the most iconic hairstyles of all time and Farrah Fawcett's feathered locks still reigns supreme. Next in line for most iconic locks included - Shirley Temple's curls, Marilyn Monroe's platinum blonde hair and Jennifer Aniston's "The Rachel" from "Friends." Although not everyone can rock these iconic locks, nearly eight in 10 women have finally come to appreciate and love their hair due to their time in quarantine due to COVID-19. Eighty-five percent of women polled in fact, said they're happy they let their hair go natural during this time and 36% have even embarked on a total "hair reset" back to their true color. Over half of respondents also shared that improving their hair's health has been a top priority of theirs during this time. "Hair health is more than physical appearance - it can affect self-confidence and expression at any age," said a spokesperson from Hair Biology. "One of our goals is to empower women to take control of their changing hair by focusing on the science of why these transformations are happening." Nearly half of women surveyed said each gray hair is actually an accomplishment in their eyes, rather than something to be upset about. And over half (57%) have enjoyed their aging journey over all so far in their lives - and 68% said they'd much rather embrace the aging process than try to hide it. "Rather than trying to cover up the changes that are occurring as we age it's important to address and embrace them in order to keep women feeling bolder, not older," said Dr. Jeni Thomas, PhD, principal scientist at Hair Biology. "We believe in the power of celebrating age and the experience that comes with it."
