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.
