We can’t quite believe it’s been 15 years since we kissed goodbye to the ’90s and saw the millennium in, the 2000s were a decade we’ll never forget, I mean how could we with beauty trends like these…
1. Bandanas Made A Comeback
Bandanas were the height of cool in the 00s, if you were wearing one, you were automatically 10x cooler than everyone else. Fact.
2. We Bought Perfume, SO much perfume
Celebrity scents went big in the 00s, now we could finally smell like our idols, but were you a Britney Spears Fantasy or a J-Lo Glow kinda girl? It’s says a lot. Oh and if your PE kit bag didn’t contain either Soo? Kiss Me or Impulse body spray you’d be judged, harshly. PS. You also had to own Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue or Kenzo Flower, but could only wear one spritz on seriously special occasions, because that bottle had to last you the whole year.
3. Skater Girls Happened
Avril Lavigne happened, and with her came a whole generation of skater girls (and boys). The mandatory uniform consisted of pin-straight hair, LOTS of eyeliner and maybe even a tie-vest combo if you were really cool.
4. Feathered Hair
If your hairdresser was really good she’d suggest you get your hair feathered. Because who doesn’t want their locks to perfectly frame their face? And if Beyonce was doing it, you can bet we were too.
5. The ‘Pob’
Victoria Beckham chopped off her locks and the ‘pob’ was born (aka the posh bob). Enter, a whole decade of lop-sided chops.

6. We All Went Crazy For Quiffs
That little bump of hair at the top your head took your look from plain to awesome, instantly. Bonus points for extra height.
7. Side Fringes
Oh side fringes were a THING in the 00s. Whether it was a full fringe pushed to the side (with some force and a lot of hairspray), or simply a inch-wide piece of hair that sat across your face, if you didn’t have a side fringe your hair = basic.
8. Ghds Took Over The World
Hair straighteners took over in the 00s, pin-straight locks became THE hairstyle to rock.
9. Belly Button Piercings
If you had your belly button pierced you instantly earned major cool points in the 00s…
10. Silky Hair Scarves
Wearing a silky head scarf was the perfect way to channel your inner boho-babe, they were usually no wide than two inches but at least a metre long – so it would conveniently get caught in everything.
