For some people, hair is nothing but a substance attached to the head – a part of the human body that has to be dealt with. For others, a hairstyle is an expression of personality and creativity. It’s a way to show the world who one is, and how one is feeling.
In the U.S., there are many different hairstyles, but a few stand out from the others. This collection of styles are the most common and the most stereotypically respresentative of specific personalites.
Read on to learn more about some of the most popular hairstyles in the U.S..

It seems like there are about as many hairstyles as there are people. People tend to change their hair often, either by cutting, coloring or perming it. Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of which styles are in, and which are out.
Famous people often influence popular hairstyles. For example, actress Jennifer Aniston has made several styles extremely popular with women all over the U.S., and Michael Jordan helped make the bald head more acceptable in the 1990s.
