“Would you like to sit down for a while…”
For us millennials who were teenagers in the big-twitter era of the early 2010s, she and his line in “Why did you keep me here?” The patterned bodysuits, apron dresses and wingtip shoes sent shivers down our spines because we were literally 15.that song has everywhere More recently, because TikTok has identified it as the viral anthem behind the so-called pandemic resurgence of the 2020s.
In the final months of 2021 and into 2022, countless users on the app have superimposed the song on a retro photo slideshow of the tweed aesthetic they tried about a decade ago. Fashion-wise, the feminine silhouettes of the 1940s and 50s, bright, sometimes clashing colors, and a strong dedication to ballet flats and menswear-inspired dress shoes defined the look. Now, tell me: With all this fancy hustle happening online, have you ever actually seen someone dressed like this in real life? maybe not.
The consensus on TikTok seems to be that fashion trends come and go, and no one gets a chance to actually try them. While that might be true for fashion in this case, beauty is another matter. Because – that’s right, folks – tweed hair will sit for a while.
What is hair? Take Zoe Deschanel, for example. She has almost always had, and will always have, what I think is the style of pointed tweed and, more importantly, the haircut: long, barely layered and thick eye-framed bangs that fall somewhere in the middle of the drapery, the blunt and the side. Also, dark brunette – I don’t know what it’s about the twee aesthetic, but it seems to revolve mainly around brunette shades (also trending lately. hello expensive brunette).
If you check out the #twee hashtag on TikTok, you’ll see what I mean, because most of the people who post there have this exact hairstyle – no matter if those people recently ran to their salon to get that chop Or have them all the time and just come out of the woodwork, I’m not sure.I only know the last time I saw This Lots of people with Zooey Deschanel-style hair, I barely have a driver’s license, and really love this up and coming artist named Ke$ha.
If you ask Columbia, Missouri-based hairstylist Colissa Nole, she’ll tell you this retro hairstyle never really went away in the first place. “These trends are here to stay and will always be there — and honestly, it’s not a social media fad,” she explained. “I’m sure they never actually left. I just felt like there were people in the shadows waiting in the shadows with those full faces and soft layers and heavy curtain fringes.”
Whether tweed hair is coming back or never going away, all the feeling in the world is that it’s going to be trendy at this particular moment. After all, as New York City-based hairstylist Luis Miller once told me, “Beauty trends are going to make a comeback. It’s all back to ‘new age’ in one form or another; they just put the word ‘modern’ in it The front.” In 2020 and 2021, everyone wants shags and curtain bangs (a 1970s style) or a Y2K-inspired bob and pendant. If the 1990s and early 2000s were last year, it would only make sense if the 2010s trends were in the next cycle (and the 1980s, but that’s a story for another day). Noel calls this phenomenon “the beauty of regeneration.”
If you want to try a more polished version of high school hair – or at least your hair hope You can have it in high school — here’s what Nole recommends discussing with your stylist: “Cutting these types of haircuts requires a lot of disconnection between the front and back of the head, with softness in the middle,” she explains . “Consider starting in the fringe area, pulling your hair high to create curtain bangs, then pushing everything forward at the back of your head to match.”
