25. Frizzy Waves
Everyone loves big hair, and there is nothing wrong with it. However, the fizzy trend has got to go. Low-maintenance hair is far better than these waves.
Sometimes, less is more. Curl cream and argan oil can be a great, and simple, solution this year. Calm down the frizz, and embrace new and improved hair. It will be softer, sleeker, and easier to manage.

When you are having a bad hair day, a voluminous bun seems like a perfect choice. Plus, this is one of the rare hairstyles that goes amazing with casual and more fashion style. At least, that used to be the case.
Last year this hairstyle was a great hit, but now it’s far from chic. The reason? Some people have taken the bun a little further by adding volume – they look as if they have a small animal on their head. Say goodbye to volumized buns, and say hello to delicate ballet buns.
22. Super Long Locks
People must cut their hair for a reason. Long hair is hard to maintain, just washing it and drying can take hours. Plus, long hair is heavy and can stress you in the summer days.
A line is thin between looking beautiful with long hair and looking boring. Try a shorter and a bouncier haircut instead. Your hair will feel healthier, and also look healthier.
21. Top Knots
There was a time when even Jennifer Lopez could pull off this hair style, but that time is long gone. Some women pile their hair on top of their heads so they could look taller. Yes, it sounds weird, but it’s the truth.

20. High Ponytails
Ponytails are practical and no one can deny it. Still, hair experts don’t have flattering words for this hairstyle. They hate the high, top ponytails the most.

16. Half Up, Half Down
The time has come to decide if you love your hair up or down. The half bun isn’t popular anymore, and even fashion bloggers are ditching it.

14. Asymmetrical Haircuts
Some hairstyles only seem cool, like asymmetrical haircuts. This is probably the only hair trend that lasted for a split of a second. The reason you may ask? It’s simple – they look like the styles attacked your hair with scissors and left you with bad hair.

8. Glittery Hair
Yes, this was a trend, and many followed it – no matter how awkward having glitters in your hair might be. Glitters are fine if you are at a kid’s party or an art class. Once you are all adult, you should avoid glitters.

Khloe Kardashian did her best to popularize space buns. They do look, kind of cute, in her Instagram posts, and that’s pretty much it. This hairstyle should never be seen on a business meeting.

Somehow, bowl cuts always make a comeback. This is still a mystery why, but it seems that people love to bring out terrible hairstyles from time to time.

Thanks to the internet meme, this haircut will forever be known as the “I want to speak to a manager” haircut. You may think taht it looks fresh or modern, but it doesn’t actually.

If you want to transform your hair, there are other bold ways to do so. Also, if you want a shave a part of your head, talk with a stylist first. Never do it on your own.
2. Dyed Greys
Grey hair comes with age, and it should be like that. Don’t force even when it looks good on Kim Kardashian. Plus, dying your hair grey seems like a waster.
Let the mature nature do the work for you and be patient. If you love the grey shade, you can always go for a light, blond hue. It’s fun, safe, and way easier to maintain.
This a big no-no. Rocking a mullet is mission impossible and it never looks good on anyone. Don’t think about this hair, don’t try it and don’t destroy your hair like that.
Always avoid a mullet. Don’t let friends and family convince you that having a mullet is a good thing. This is the ultimate haircut never to try ever.
