Crimping is still in, ladies! The crimper device is perfect if you want to give your hair a little wave, a little volume, and a little retro look. This was huge in the ’80s!

2. The Side PonyTail


The side ponytail was a classic look in the ’80s. It’s had multiple alterations over the years from the side to the very top. Anyone remember those 1980s workout videos with the side ponies and leg warmers? A scrunchie is necessary!

In an attempt to get your hair as big and voluptuous as ever, perming and teasing your hair was the way to go. People still get perms and typically tease their hair for shows or competitions. Back in the day, people did this constantly to maintain the volume of their hair!

4. A Middle Part with Bangs


Farrah Fawcett truly made this look famous. And because Farrah Fawcett was wearing this look, everyone had to wear it. This one is probably one of the most memorable looks of the ’80s that are still sported today.

5. Bows everywhere


This is an adorable hairstyle that’s still popular today! All you had to do back in the day was tease your hair, pull it back, and accessorize with your finest bow.
