Do you remember the names of these retro hairstyles?

You'll buzz right through our vintage quiff quiz.

Classic haircuts never go out of style. Well, maybe the rat tail and whatever Bon Jovi wore in 1985 go out of style. 

But otherwise, those crisp coifs of the 20th century are still sharp looks for modern men and women. You can go into any barber shop or hair stylist today and ask for these timeless hairstyles. As long as you can remember their names.

We picked 10 styles from the past 100 years. You could spot them on TV, magazines and album covers. Let's see if you can recall what they were called. Good luck!
