A friend of mine recently told me that while traveling to Iowa, she was shocked by how many women were still rocking the Kate Gosselin: a long, side-combed bang with shorter, spiky strands in the back. The look is also known (to me) as the reverse mullet.

Gosselin’s hair is certainly not something I would wish on a friend, but it clearly caught on in some parts of the country. Here are some other looks that have impacted society, for better or worse. Did you ever rock any of these ‘dos?
