From boldly boasting shoulder pads to embracing wildly dyed hair or frizzed-out perms — two out of three Americans have a previous fashion choice or hairstyle that haunts them, according to new research.
Floyd 99’s Barbershop, in conjunction with OnePoll, conducted a study to examine the hair, beauty, and grooming routines of 2,000 Americans. It found that 66 percent of Americans have a cringeworthy look or fashion regret from their past that they can’t bear to think about.
And through their research they found the common denominator of regretful styling, beauty and grooming habits people have had about themselves in the past.
Poor fashion choices aside, the ghosts of hairstyles past was the biggest factor.
Beyond theperm and hair color gone wrong, a mullet, bangs and big curlswere hairstyles that most Americans would like to leave in the rearview mirror.
And while many of the survey participants reflect with shame on their past style and image choices, some feel they haven’t evolved with modern times.
In fact, the average person polled claims they haven’t changed up their look in six years.
