Create Awesome 80s Hair Styles

Hmmmm. 80s Hair Styles. I never thought we would ever see 80s hair styles coming back, however, there's evidence of it amongst the young ones today.





For the genuine 80s look, anything goes. Short one side, long the other, crimped, teased, perms, spikes, long hair, pony tails to the side. Oooh, and the mullet. The list is definitely weird and usually not exactly classy.

Also, 80s hair cuts were very unisex. So you may think a spike was for the guys, when plenty of chicks had spikes too. Me included.. Sometimes the spike hair cuts were good, and some were so bad, that even I hated them.

Other unisex 80s hairstyles included the rat's tail, mullet, perms and that type of hair cut where hair was cut a lot shorter on one side. Is there a name for that?

Tease your hair 80s style

For dressing up, you will either want to organise a wig, or get out the comb and hair spray. If you are really lucky, you may know of someone with a crimping iron, however, I do not like your chances of this.. Unless you know someone who recently bought one, cos they're back in fashion.

Or.. if you really want to be brave and out there.. AND.. you are going to get your hair cut after the 80s party anyway.. What about getting a real 80s hairstyle?!

"What!?" you're thinking. Well yeah, I hear ya, but hear me out.

Think about it. If you are going to get your hair cut anyway, imagine getting the ultimate mo-hawk, getting your hair cut short on one side, a rats tail or a spike?

For a few of you, the step from your hair now, to the 80s style, and then get it restyled to how you want, may actually work. Now, how cool would your 80s outfit be, with the hairstyle being genuine 80s??!!

Ha ha ha, all I am saying, is that may be a crazy option for some of you.. And you never know, you may even keep it! :-D
