We'll just drop a few terms: Madonna, "Dirty Dancing", Nena, Aerobics, David Bowie, Punker, Popper, Tina Turner, Modern Talking, Glam Metal. And, can you already get an idea of what was hip on heads in the eighties? Let's say: It wasn't just about makeup and fashion that got wild.

80s hairstyles: These were the trendiest looks

Doing 80s hairstyles yourself is not difficult at all. Unless it's a radical haircut, but in such cases, you're better off getting a wig anyway. Unless you also want to wear the style in everyday life - which sometimes can't look bad.

Volume, drama, and lots of hairsprays: that's what characterizes 80s hairstyles.

1. Crepe Hairstyles

In the 1980s, what the hair held was crimped. The great thing is that the look is still popular today and very easy to do yourself. Of course, you need a crepe iron first.

And then you follow this quick guide:

2. Perm: sometimes frizzy, sometimes XL waves

Nothing went without a perm in the 80s! It is a prime example of an 80s hairstyle. Rows of women had their hair styled in frizzy mini waves or dramatic, large curls. If you are aiming for this 80s hairstyle, it is best to go to a hairdresser, because he knows exactly how the procedure is as gentle on the hair as possible. Otherwise, you will also find tips on how to do a perm yourself.

Creped, wavy, backcombed: 80s hairstyles are heavily piled up.

3. Mullet

A hairy horror today, the hottest trend back then: the notorious mullet hairstyle. Both men and women went for the "short in the front, long in the back" cut and thought: Yeah, cool, finally a short spiked fringe and long strands combined in one hairstyle! Today, well, the mullet is at least suitable for the theme party like no other. We recommend a wig for the stylish footballer look of yesteryear.

 

4. Backcombed, frizzy and shaggy

In general, the following applies to 80s hairstyles: the more it looks like you've just gotten into the socket, the better. You can achieve a real volume explosion by backcombing your hair, especially at the roots, so that the hair sticks out from the head all around. Give your head a good tousle and set your work in a place with hairspray.

You could already pass for lost members of Guns N' Roses circa 1987.

5. Side ponytail

It gets really girly with an asymmetrical ponytail that sits somewhere diagonally at the top of the head. Just not accurate to the apex! For the hairstyle, it is best to bend down, grab your hair, and tie it in the desired place. This is how you achieve a great palm tree look!

6. Sidecut / Undercut

The side or undercut came as a trend hairstyle from the punk direction. So if you are brave and have always wanted to try the hairstyle: Now is the right moment! The rest of the hair on the head should of course be one thing above all: tousled. Pssst: If you don't dare to shave, you can also pull your hair so tightly on the side of your head that it looks like it's short.

7. Föhnwelle

Farrah Fawcett not only shaped the hair trends in the 70s with her iconic blow-dried hairstyle, but her influence also extended into the 80s. After all, you can also have a good portion of volume blow-dried into your hair!

8. Colorful scarves, XL hair ties & headbands as hair accessories

You round off your 80s hairstyle with a colorful, knotted scarf, a bright hairband, or a fluffy XL hair tie in an absolutely iconic way. The flashier the accessory, the better.

It's not for nothing that the 1920s are also called the "Roaring Twenties". Economic and cultural development in Western countries was at its peak and life was booming, especially in cities like Berlin, London, Paris, Chicago, and New York. Jazz bars, art deco, and flapper girls shaped life - and the look on the heads of women.

A short bob haircut with water waves or the slightly longer Marcel wave was particularly popular in the 1920s. The Parisian hairdresser Francois Marcel Woelffle not only invented and patented the technique of curling hair with curling tongs, but we also have him to thank for the first electric curling iron. With one of these, you can still miss the Marcel Wave today. You can find out how in this YouTube video.

In the 1930s, hairstyles got a little longer again but still remained quite tomboyish. One of the most popular hairstyles is the pageboy - often combined with the so-called pin curls. With the Pagenkopf or Pageboy, the approximately shoulder-length hair is straightened and the ends are rolled inwards. A big fan of this hairstyle was a movie star, Ginger Rogers. For her style on the picture above - from the film "Vivacious Lady" - you also put a pin curl at the height of the ear, which is placed upwards and backward.
