The History of Baby Hairs
According to “[Detangling Our Roots] The History of Baby Hairs” by Princess Gabbara, styling your baby hairs is a trend that started sometime in the 1970s. The trend continued well into the nineties, and for both men and women, slicked baby hairs meant that you were as fly as can be.
Why is the trend still around in 2019?
The baby hairs trend didn’t end in 1999; all over Instagram, you can see images of men and women with slicked down, intricately styled baby hairs.
In Princess Gabarra’s article “The History of Baby Hairs”, she mentions that baby hairs help to give one a youthful appearance. Nowadays, many men and women are interested in retaining their youthful appearance. So, as long as looking youthful is “in”, we can bet that baby hairs will stay trendy, too.
