In the past on Dangerous Minds I’ve blogged about ‘The higher the hair, the closer to God’: Glorious BIG hair from the 1960s and Outrageously HUGE pompadours. This time I’m tackling the ever so awesome hairstyles of the 1980s. Just like the ‘60s bouffant and the ‘50s pompadour, the 1980s had its own signature look: Bad perms, crimping irons, hair gel and more Aqua Net than you can shake a stick at. Now some of these ‘dos—if I recall correctly—did follow some of us around into the early nineties.
I’m dying for the patented 80s BIG HAIR look to make an ironic hipster comeback. It just has to. All you Millennials reading this, please take note of these images and make BIG FUCKING HAIR a thing again, please? I’m begging you.
As a side note: someone needs to make a coffee table book solely dedicated to these totally rad hairstyles. Don’t say I never gave you a million dollar idea.
