100 Years of Japanese Beauty Video

Prepare to Be Entranced by the Past 100 Years of Japanese Beauty

Japanese women have always been way ahead of the beauty curve, and Cut Video is proving that in its latest 100 Years of Beauty installment. In the minute-long clip, we're taken through decades of trends still popular today, including rainbow hair, blunt bangs, and grungy pouts. You may be surprised to learn that these popular styles were all mastered by Japanese women from the '70s to the early 2000s — well before the advent of Instagram.

The video also highlights the historic regal pompadour and painted doll-like lips from the 1910s. But the transformations wouldn't be complete without showcasing the beloved "Harajuku girl" style that has even influenced beauty-lovers across the globe, including Gwen Stefani.

The stunning ladies of Japan have proven their amazing ability to blend creativity with simplicity to create timeless looks. You'll want to practice all of these, so grab your makeup kit and watch along!
