While many people think that the 80s flat-top hairstyle is better suited to men, this gorgeous Grace Jones-inspired haircut proves otherwise. Worn by people like Jennifer Lopez and Chrissy Teigen, updated 80s hair looks have also been seen on the red carpets and runways that seriously tempt us to try them out for ourselves. Instead, just put on a neon leggings, a ruffle shirt, a pair of black lace gloves, and finish off your look naturally with big, sprayed hair. The bigger the better the rule applies when it comes to 80s hair, and voluminous curls like Brooke Shield’s are an iconic staple.
So if, like us, you’ve been persuaded to try a 1980s hairstyle but don’t know where to start, you’re in luck.
How do I get 80s fluffy hair?
The much-discussed date between the Dead to Me star and Brad Pitt brought us an amazing 80s hair look. With voluminous wavy bangs and a striking red headband, it won’t last for decades. And while everyone was eager to listen to the singer-songwriter’s voice, we’re still talking about her big, curled 80s hair. With layers similar to Princess Diana, actress and former fitness star Jane Fonda wore the ultimate long 80s hair during a photo shoot.
After seeing these, you may have found everything you need for October 31st, or you might want to buy some scrunchies for everyday use.
How did 80s people do their hair?
This choice became the most popular hairstyles of the 80s thanks to music legends like Prince, Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, and Rick James. Stars like David Bowie and Paul McCartney wore the mullet back in the early 1970s, but the store up front, the party in the back hairstyle, didn’t really pick up steam until the mid-eighties. The Jheri Curl invented by hairdresser Jheri Redding in the 1970s (also written Jerry or Jeri Curl) became increasingly popular when international superstar Michael Jackson wore the wet look in the 1980s. Ponytails were typically worn high on the back or side of the head and secured with hair ties for an overall effect that looked fun and carefree.
