Trends come and go, and then they come back again. There’s no denying that there are cringe-worthy beauty looks from the 80s and 90s that we wish never happened, but with those moments come a time for reinvention. Some trends are so big that we get childlike-happy to see them back and with Pantene’s Pro-V formula’s new ingredient, histidine, we can rock these cool trends this summer.
Crimping sounds like some kind of trendy dance move – it looks really cool but getting it right might take some time. We love that this trend has made a comeback because it gives the hair a tight texture that won’t lose shape and can be worn for a long period. A point to remember is that crimping can be damaging, so be sure to shampoo and condition correctly, use protective treatments and never forget to apply a hair protector spray.

80s side and high-top ponytails
Ponytails were huge in the 80s and if yours was teased high on top of your head, you were on trend. Now, however, the style might have changed a little and we have Beyoncé to thank for that – her appearance at the 2015 Met Gala awards gave the high-top ponytail new life. Give it a try yourself with Pantene’s 24hr Frizz Fighter (R74.99).
Headbands have been around for a long time and we’ll never forget the iconic comb headband, Alice bands, bandanas or the sports sweatband that went on to become a fashion accessory. Fast forward 20 years and headbands of all sorts are here to stay.
80s big, textured hair
Big hair in the 80s was everything, and rocking your natural hair meant there was minimal exposure to heat styling or chemical damage. Embracing your natural hair has become a big deal recently, especially in SA. And while back then perms and frizzy hair were big, today’s textured hair is a lot more tamed. Using Pantene’s deep moisture soufflé (R74.99) will help keep your texture while not letting it get out of control.
Scrunchies in the 90s were a girl’s favourite hair accessory, especially when it came to side ponytails. Today scrunchies may seem like a bit of a throwback, but add one to a topknot as a fun accessory this summer.
