Big hair continued to remain as one of the style statements in the 80s. This was not a completely new trend as the beehive look was already in vogue in the 70s. Big was definitely beautiful in terms of hairstyles in the 80s, and this was further popularized by rock groups such as Bon Jovi and Guns N' Roses. The hair in such cases was teased a bit, and fluffed up. This was done with the help of a mousse which also had glitter or sparkle added to it, to get a wild and wacky look.
80s also saw quite a few bursts of colors in the hair. Frizzy hair with shades of red and gold were dominant in that decade. Spiky punk hair was also seen in the fashion circuit. It was the early 80s that saw mohawks rise in its popularity. Use of hair sprays and hair dryers helped to add more body to the hair. Hair was usually worn long.
Hilarious, weird or even cute, the 80s was a glorious period altogether! Although, one can never know, a few years down the line, some of the hairstyles being flaunted today, might be considered weird by the future generation!
