San lady botswana.jpg
A typical texture of Black African hair that has not been altered by hot combs, flat irons, or chemicals (by perming, relaxing, or straightening). Each strand of this hair type grows in a tiny spring-like, corkscrew shape. The overall effect is such that, despite relatively fewer actual hair shafts compared to straight hair,[1] this texture appears (and feels) denser than its straight counterparts. Due to this, it is often referred to as "thick", "bushy", or "woolly".
Asymmetric cut A haircut where the hair is longer on one side.
Beehive AmyWinehouseBerlin2007.jpg A hairstyle in which the hair is raised at the top of the head by padding or teasing so that the size and shape is suggestive of a beehive, hence the name.

Bowl cut Bowl haircut - 01.jpg Named for the shape of the style as much as for a once common method of achieving it (i.e. using a bowl to style the cut by placing it on the head and trimming the exposed hair). Moe Howard from The Three Stooges has this hairstyle for his trademark and Henry V of England had a similar hairstyle. This hairstyle was popular in America during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Duck's ass Ducktail.jpg A hairstyle predominantly favoured by men, though some young female fans of Elvis Presley sported a similar look in his heyday.

The style required that the hair be combed back around the sides of the head. The teeth edge of a comb was then used to define a central parting running from the crown to the nape at the back of the head, resembling, to many, the rear end of a duck. The hair on the top front of the head was either deliberately disarrayed so that untidy strands hung down over the forehead, or combed up and then curled down into an 'Elephants trunk' which would hang down as far as the top of the nose. The sides were styled to resemble the folded wings of the duck.

It is an elaborate hairstyle consisting of two spiralled buns on either side of the head and two braids wound around the back of the head, with twisted strands of hair in different figures in the middle of the braids. This hairstyle is reminiscent of the one found on the ancient statue of the Lady of Elx.
Fauxhawk David Beckham.jpg Also known as the 'frohawk', this hairstyle is an approximation of a mohawk made without shaving or 'buzzing' the hair on the sides of the head, thus allowing an imitation of the look of a true mohawk without having to commit to removing most of one's hair. The name is a portmanteau of faux, the French word for false or fake, and 'mohawk'.
Feathered hair Farrah Fawcett 1977.JPG Feathered hair was popular in the 1970s and the early 1980s with both men and women.
