Cut.com has set the internet a buzz with its titillating time-lapse video of black beauty through the decades. This is a follow-up to their previously released video from a month ago, 100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute which featured a white model. Starting in 1910, the video takes viewers on a journey of black beauty trends all the way to the current 2010s. It’s definitely worth the watch to catch some of the styles you might have rocked in these past decades.

What do you think of the video? Did you notice some of the trends are cycling back around?

I need a tutorial for the 30s and 40s looks. They were gorgeous. Great video!

I would’ve done something different for 2010 and had wavy hair. I see that more than afros nowadays

Textured fro in the form of knot or twist outs, maybe?

Yeah, I was thinking more of “defined twist out” or something like that

The 1980s should have been a Jheri Curl, lol.
And the 2010s should have been a twist out.
But other than that, pretty cool video!

I was thinking the same thing about the 80s! Either a jheri curl or a relaxed style. No one wore their hair natural and loose in the 80s

Damn, I am old fashioned as hell! Where my 1910s at?! That 1930s was really nice too. Might try that when summer comes.

I love historical images and these styles are very interesting. I wander what products they used to create these styles given the limited products available during certain periods…

I’m 19 and I’m going to watch the video. I can just picture me and other women wearing all of these styles. It is very versatile. I can post this on google +.

[…] enough, Ethiopian beauty mirrors the transition of 100 years of black American beauty but in reverse. Natural hair styles are highlighted at the beginning of the century in the 1910s […]
