Trend Alert! Retro Hairstyles

June 17th’s MTV Movie and TV Awards brought all kinds of noteworthy fashion and beauty moments, but one style we couldn’t take our eyes off of was Tessa Thompson’s retro ‘do.

The “Men in Black: International” star, who always turns out unique looks, rocked the red carpet with vintage hair reminiscent of a 1940s pompadour, with a modern twist.

Tessa’s hairstylist Lacy Redway discussed the choice with E! News, explaining, “I wanted to play with retro hair, but make it an updated version and also embrace texture in her hair. We often don’t see hair like this on the red carpet, and/or especially on women of color. I want to help change the way we see red carpet fashion and help celebrate individuality on these platforms."


Tessa isn’t the only beauty maven who turned to the past for hair inspiration. We are feeling these other throwback styles!

Are you loving these throwback styles? Do you prefer to keep your hair in the 21st century?
