Wishful Thinking1 of 10
By Brienne Walsh
Almost any beauty trend today is a reprise of beauty trends of the past. (Think milkmaid braids and dramatic cat eyes.) But there are some overlooked styles that have been gone too long. Read on to discover Glo's prediction wish list.
Although crimped hair has yet to make a full comeback, the trend frequently shows up on the runway. To get the look without frying strands, braid damp hair in small sections before bed. It'll be just like old times.
Red Alert2 of 10
The Trend: Cherry red lacquer
Nothing says screen siren like long crimson nails artfully filed to a delicate point, a look Rita Hayworth was known for. While nails of every color and pattern are the latest craze, we'd like to see the return of this classic. Long and tapered, these nails turn a woman's hands into a powerful tool of seduction.
Making Waves3 of 10
The Trend: Perms
Since 1906, when Charles Nestle invented "the permanent wave," perms have given women a way to add body to limp locks. In the '40s and '50s, perms gave hair a glamorous fullness (as seen here on model Suzy Parker), but by the '80s, big hair got bigger and perms earned their bad rap. Luckily, today's perms have come a long way, and we're all for enhancing your hair the new old-fashioned way.

Windy City4 of 10
The Trend: Wind bonnets
Bad hair days, begone. Inspired by style icons of the '60s, we're throwing caution to the wind and angling for a reprise of these headscarves. Meant to keep hair coiffed in any weather—or when cruising around in a convertible—wind bonnets won't flatten your hair like a hat, plus they add an air of sophistication to any look.
Flower Power5 of 10
The Trend: Blooms behind the ear
Gaining popularity during World War II, when American soldiers stationed in Hawaii tucked them behind their ladies' ears, flowers as hair accessories have, more recently, been worn by hippies and brides alike. But we think they can breathe life into any evening or weekend look.
Ups & Downs6 of 10
The Trend: Half-up, half-down 'dos
Softer than a ponytail yet more "done" than simply wearing your hair down, this style take mere seconds to do and the payoff is huge: The look can open up your face, and make you look years younger. While versions of the style are always in, we'd like to see more of Catherine Deneuve's smooth and simple take on the trend.
Rock On7 of 10
The Trend: Bandanas
Music's bad boys have always worn bandanas to channel cool—or to conceal bald spots. But it takes a real rebel of a woman to sport one on her head. In its original kerchief print, the classic bandana is ripe for a return.
Acting Your Age8 of 10
The Trend: Growing old gracefully
We're all for looking your best at any age, but today's Botox- and collagen-crazed culture could take a cue from legendary stars like Katharine Hepburn, who let her age show and was all the more beautiful for it.
Back To Reality9 of 10
The trend: No-fuss cuts
In the age of the Kardashians, women seem to need a team of stylists just to go the gym, which makes us long for the Gen X slacker cuts of the mid '90s. Inspired by Winona Ryder in Reality Bites, this easy 'do is the epitome of low-maintenance beauty.

Band Aid10 of 10
The Trend: Zigzag headbands
This tress-taming accessory had its heyday in the '80s and '90s, and we're happy to report that it has recently shown up on the runway. At one Paris Fashion Week show, models wore the accessory to create spring's slicked-back hair trend.
