The Return of the 1980’s “Big Hair” Trend

October 5, 2015


Taking us way back to the 80’s in a big way with BIG HAIR.

Depending on the specific style, hairstyles in the big hair categories may require a number of styling, cutting, or treatment techniques. Styling of punk and alternative big hair styles often requires backcombing (teasing) and the liberal application of styling aids such as hair spray and hair gel, often in combination with the use of hair dryers. Crimping irons, perms, hair rollers, or other techniques may also be required.

While for some people this look of the moment may be ok, for others it’s probably safe to say, please! just leave well enough alone. I would think we had enough with Amy Winehouse’s humungous beehive a short while back. No? It seems now that big hair is showing up more and more. Whoa…

Hopefully soon “This too shall pass.”

Both Kim Kardashian and Adrian look relatively decent wearing this style.
Of course it has everything to do with the texture of the hair.

The Barbie Models didn’t do half too bad, but overall, LADIES, We Have Got To Do Better!!!
