Baseball hats, beanies, bandanas, and headbands were favored by younger American women. Hair jewelry and accessories such as tiaras and diadems were also used for special events. Metallic barrettes with rhinestones and
gems, barrettes with novelty prints, and small butterfly clips were worn as hair adornment by young women for neo-bohemian looks. Some other styles previously worn, such as fedoras and turbans, appeared on occasion.
Shoulder-length or longer hair prevailed in the early years of the 2000s. Vintage-inspired looks resulted in both flat-iron straightened hair or romantic natural loose waves. Other popular hairdos of the period included French
raids, corn rows, ponytails, dreadlocks, and buzz cuts. Jeweled hairsticks, hairpins, and other accessories were used to hold hairstyles in place and to add decorative elements. For those would did not want long hair on a daily
basis, hair extensions and hair weaves became popular alternatives.
Cosmetic surgery, silicone injections, and liposuction were adopted by Americans as an alternative for rapid beauty enhancement. By the early 2000s, Botox injections promised wrinkle reduction and fuller skin. Shining products could add sparkle to a woman’s face. Younger women and members of some subculture movements wore beauty marks, fake moles, face paints, facial tattoos, and facial piercing in the nose and eyebrows.
