A primitive form of the mullet, this style plagued the 1970s with its feathered shagginess.
Slathering on lots of oil to enhance your "glow" is now a thing of the past, but at one point, women flocked to the beach covered in this greasy stuff.
The 1970s gave birth to the punk movement, but with it came some of the most absurd (and time-consuming!) hairstyles in history.
Neither thin nor thick, this crazy brow shape flattered no one — not even Madonna.
Sorry folks, but no matter how you wear these, they just make you look like a little girl.
Yes, men rocked ridiculous facial hair like it was the 19th century all over again.
Unless you are a child in a wedding or an actual fairy, please do not put flowers on the top of your head like Goldie Hawn.
This is one trend that's , but we sure hope nobody tries this type of dusty, thick formula.
If you're working out and actually need a sweatband, by all means, wear one — but skip the neon versions from the '80s. Those are best left behind with leg warmers.
Voluminous curls can look wonderful, but not when they've been teased within an inch of their life.
While a subtle lip contour à la Marilyn Monroe is an effective way to get a pretty pout, Madonna's way-too-dark lip liner from the '80s is a big no-no.
One bright shade at a time, please.
Full House's Stephanie Tanner: adorable. The side ponytail she and innumerable other '80s kids wore: not so much.

Atop her too-thin eyebrows, Gwen Stefani's '90s look often involves teensy tiny gems.
A few well-placed highlights can totally brighten up your face, but brassy blonde streaks all over your head often do the opposite. These days, most folks like to keep their lightening game on the more subtle side.
Dear every boy in the '90s who wore this haircut: What were you thinking? Bowl cuts can actually look cute sometimes (case in point: Jennifer Hudson's new hair), but parting them down the center and letting the hair look all floppy? Oof.
If you are an adult human, please repeat after me: Pigtails are never a good idea.
