The 80s saw some extraordinary hair trends - and some are now making a comeback!
In the 80s it was always allowed to be a little more: In fashion, bright colors and unusual cuts were popular and there was also a lot going on on the head. The motto: The main thing is not to be boring! Stars from the music scene such as Nena, Madonna, and David Bowie set trends.
But while a few years ago people looked at the looks from this decade with a smile, now some of the hairstyles are gradually making a comeback. Maybe you dare to try one of the retro looks. These are the 5 weirdest trend hairstyles of the 80s!
It was THE hairstyle of the 80s and was made suitable for the masses, especially by stars like Joan Jett and Nena. The hair of the mullet was cut short at the front, while the back patients remained long on the neck. Often the hairstyle was also combined with a fringed pony. A real punk look that has become a cult.
And now he seems to be coming back surprisingly. Last year, singer Miley Cyrus surprised everyone with a new hairstyle known as "The Pullet". The highlight: the mullet is combined in the new version with a casual pixie cut.
The perm was also an absolute classic of the 80s! Even then, many women wanted permanently curly hair and got it thanks to a chemical and permanent reshaping of the hair. Depending on the size of the curlers, the curls were either poodle-like or only slightly visible.
The trend hairstyle was worn by stars such as Olivia Newton-John, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Julia Roberts. The permanent wave is still offered by the hairdresser today, but because the process is extremely stressful for the hair, there are significantly fewer women who dare to take this step. The good news: technology and products have evolved since the 80s so that a permanent wave is now far less harmful to the mane than it used to be.
Get noticed at any price and more is more: these two mottos undoubtedly determined the trends in the 80s! One look that fits in perfectly is the iconic hair dryer wave. The extravagant hairstyle by "Charlie's Angels" star Farrah Fawcett became famous and then cult.
Volume, volume, volume was the motto and this was achieved through the hot air of a hairdryer and lots of hairspray. Even today, women can conjure up more density in their hair using the blow dryer - but much less dramatically than then.
They can currently be found on the heads of many women: scrunchies! But the eye-catching, large hair ties, which are often covered with fabric, are not a new invention. On the contrary, they became a cult in the 90s, but scrunchies were already popular as new hairbands in the 80s and pimped up a simple ponytail or bun in no time.
What the curling iron or straightening iron is for many women today, was in the 80s the crepe iron, which could be found in almost every household. The advantage: The mini waves ensure that even very thin hair quickly looks thicker and more voluminous.
In addition, the crepe waves conjure up a casual, light, summery look. Today the crepe iron is often only brought out for theme parties, but in the past year, a trend has taken hold that is similar to the crepe hairstyle, but looks a little more inconspicuous: the so-called mermaid waves.
