A Year in the 80’s – Hair

When I think 80’s, I instantly think big hair. Big bangs, big perms, big sweeps of hair poking out at the sides of the face like mighty wings.

I could never get the bang thing down, but I did have my share of perms. And I just loved my beautifully feathered hair when I was sixteen.

I had a rat tail at one point too, more’s the pitty. But I never did a side pony! So I’ve got that going for me.

Here are some photos of 80’s hair. Take a walk down memory lane – or maybe have a laugh at the expense of me and my fellow 80’s alumni. Either way, enjoy!

Did you have the typical big 80’s hair? That is, if you had hair in the 80’s.

  1. I had tremendous hair back in the 80’s! I think it was still pretty tall going into the 90’s even though I cut it! 🙂

    • Haha! I never could achieve any kind of hair volume. I’m glad you were able to!

      I love your hair in your profile picture! Color and cut. 🙂

      • Although, now I wear it in the same style, I’m wearing a wig in the gravatar!!

        • Haha! That’s awesome. I’ve never worn a wig and I should do that some time. My bucket list is a little off the beaten track, haha.

  3. Oh noes. I wrote a comment, but WordPress error-ed 😦
    I’d written about how I remember the big hair from 80’s TV shows, but wasn’t ever a big fan of so much perm 😛

    • Well I’m glad you wrote another one! I actually was thinking about you when I said “if you had hair in the 80’s”, haha. I was thinking about how that was before your time. I meant to get more tv pictures, but there were just so many pictures to choose from and I saved some of those for the fashion! 🙂
