13 of the Worst Beauty Trends (Ever!)

Miss Bradshaw, we’ll forgive you: Even some of the chicest stars make some beauty mistakes. Not only were perms kinda funny looking, as evidenced here, but does anyone remember how completely gross they smelled? We’re glad this trend took a nosedive (get it?!).
Teased bangs, how did we ever think you were a good idea—especially with a straight hairstyle? Oh, the horror of having a creampuff sprouting from the hairline! We can barely recall this look without needing to sit down.
Million Mile-Long Nails
Loooooong nails were something we never quite understood—how does one press the elevator button? Brush her teeth? Use chopsticks? In the name of all things functional, we declare this one of the most insane beauty trends e-v-e-r.
Super-Bleached Out Hair
Not only do we have the mega-nail situation going on here, but this is a double DON’T! Those poor, poor bleached-out tresses: No look is worth totally destroying your hair. Trust us.

One terrible trend we're still seeing too much of? Skunk-y highlights. Why not opt for other ways to celebrate the animal kingdom besides turning your pretty locks into a streaky mess?
If you’re Katy Perry or Rihanna, color can be a bold way to make a look-at-me statement. But for those of us who dunked our tips into a jar of Manic Panic? Well, let’s just take a sec to celebrate the ability to untag photos, shall we?
