[Salon Soundtrack] The Decade Edition: 2010 – 2019

[Salon Soundtrack] The Decade Edition: 2010 – 2019

The last decade ushered in a new wave of hair love. From discovering our natural textures, opting for inches, and snatched edges, we combed through the last decade to give you some of the most standout hair and beauty moments, and the music we vibed to in the salon chair. Drop a comment to add your favorite styles to our list and songs to our Spotify.

2010: Ready

With thick, full bangs, colored hair, and plenty of volume, we were ready to take on 2010. Nicki Minaj made statement wigs to mainstream and Kim Kardashian gave us long straight locks for an everyday bombshell look.

Similar to our feelings about 2020, back in 2010 Alicia Keys had us ready for the new decade and telling everyone.

2011: Love On Top

Short cuts and natural curls shined in 2011. This year, relaxers represented the only beauty and personal care category to see no growth (Mintel, 2013). We begin to see women kick the creamy stuff and experiment with their natural textures and new lengths.

The biggest reveal of 2011 was as much about Beyoncé as it was about our future big hair diva, Blue Ivy. Love On Top gave us baby fever all year long.

2012: Come As You Are

After donning wig-after-wig on the big and small screen, Viola Davis said Hollywood politics be damned and wore her stunning natural hair to the 2012 Oscar’s.

Wale and Miguel swooned over us with Lotus Flower Bomb in 2012. And as we continued to love ourselves and our tresses, we gave them a good reason to.

2013: The Come Up

Long ombré locks gave us a sophisticated way to rock both light and dark tresses at the same time (and made trendy beach waves look great too).

Macklemore knew what was up. We went beyond looks for less in 2013 and moved onto look like a bag of money … even if it was a gently used bag. We started thrifting HARD and he had the trend on lock with his song Thrift Shop.

2014: Teeny Weeny Afro, Big Mood

Lupita Nyong’o inspired us with her flawless skin, tapered TWA, and simple elegant gold headband at the 2014 Oscar Awards.

While Pharrell gave us (and every child in America) a reason to dance and talk about our feelings with the #1 Billboard hot R&B/Hip Hop song of the year, Happy.

2015: Trap Queens

We craved the dreadlock look without the commitment, so Faux Locks (pronounced foh-locks) gained popularity.

2016: Beyond Basic

Chrissy Teigen showed us how to spruce of the basic pony and make it an effortlessly elegant, award show accessory.

And, Rihanna had us doing the work that made 2016 far from basic. Little did we know, sis was working on her inclusive challenger brand, Fenty Beauty, that would debut in the next year snatching the ENTIRE industry’s edges and shaking up the beauty, lingerie, and luxury markets. We’ve got a feeling she’s coming for haircare next, we’ll wait

2017: Get In Formation Or Get Out

Beyoncé’s Lemonade album was pure artistry. Among the Black Girl Magic, self-love, history lessons, political statements, and fashion moment, Queen Bey gave us major hair inspiration. Specifically, Lemonade braids and Blue Ivy’s natural fro! And notably one of the most unapologetic hair quotes of the album, 🎵“I like my baby hair, with baby hair and afros…” Translation to the naysayers, “don’t try Beyoncé again about her baby’s hair.”

While Beyoncé gave us the courage to be our truest selves, we were introduced to the personality we didn’t know we needed — 2017 gave us Cardi B and Bodak Yellow. We spoke boldly and boasted about our bossiest intentions and money moves.

2018: Nice For What?

Lace-front wigs were gaining popularity quickly as not only a protective style but as a way to switch the mood up without a trace, real quick.

Although it was Sir Drake who gave us our 2018 anthem “Nice for What,” he elevated an all-star cast of incredible women to headline our unapologetically bold year, including Tracee Ellis Ross who we now know was working on the game-changing hair brand, Pattern Beauty, that launched in 2019.

2019: Throw It Back

In the last year of the decade, breakout artist Lizzo had us incredibly curious about our DNA results — which only revealed what we already knew (🎵we’re “100% that b*tch”). She threw it back and so did we, scrunchies, big statement hair clips, and deep brown lipsticks have taken over Instagram to give us 90s vibes with a 2000s spin.

Long story short, we’re going into the next decade, bolder and more confident. Follow along with our playlist for as you get ready to ring in the New Year with your faves and celebrate all you’ve accomplished (and survived) throughout the decade, cheers 🥂
