What We Can Learn From 80’s Hair

They say that history repeats itself and nothing is closer to the truth than beauty: Grunge, alternative, glam, rock – so timeless, yet each with a specific time in history.

Let’s delve into the 80’s and some of the hair styles that made that era famous:

The Full Volume

Curls and volume were all the rage and nobody did it better than Julia and Cindy. Today, we still crave volume but in a much more understated way.

The Overbearing Hair Accessory
as seen on Madonna and Ione Skye
If you wanted to be cool, you had to wear a hair accessory that was almost the size of your head (the bow was the best). Nowadays, we’re much more into simple and petite accessories, perhaps a  head band?

The Short Bob

There were two kinds of bobs: the Molly Ringwald, girl-next-door, and the Linda Evangelista, girlish-guy. Today, we prefer the LOB, or longer bob that Gwyneth Paltrow made so famous.

Would you wear any of these ‘do’s today? Why or why not?
