Easy 80’s Hair

by jennine on March 17, 2009

Personally, I did not have very stylish hair in the 80’s. Half of the 80’s I had two braids like Pipi Longstocking, and the other half consisted of the ‘feathered look’, the perm, and then the perm with a claw attached. Shudder. Looking back at the 80’s through the eyes of nostalgia, cinema and music, there were some really great hair styles. Robert Smith, I love you. Also, I really loved Susan Surandon’s hair in The Hunger though I’d not the courage to go short. Not after what happened in the 90’s. Shudder. Anyway, last week, when I was trying to figure out what to do with my hair for the Complex Geometries post I decided I needed something more dramatic than the regular mop I have a the moment, and with a twist and a clip, I came up with this updo. A few of you commented how much you liked it, so I decided to share the love in a video.

It only takes a few seconds, I swear.

Girl, you sound so sweet! I love the hair and it suits perfectly with your make up.

I want it to do it but my hair it´s too short I think :S

Big kiss!

100% brilliant. I am SO doing this. A billion times more interesting than my ponytail.

I’m so glad you posted this! I was trying to figure out how you did it. Looks great!

Love it! I’m going to try your tip! Reminds me a bit of the asymmetrical bob that I had going for a short time during my teen years in the 80’s.

❤ sal.. oh yeah, though, i still do the ponytail quite a bit!
❤laurel… cool! i’m glad the video is helpful!
❤capitola…ah i SO wanted the asymmetrical bob, but no one would let me. stupid people and thier opinions, they ended up suggesting a perm instead.
❤ calamity, haha thanks, though many times they ain’t so lovely.
❤swan! ha! you have such big curls! so pretty.

Had a fabulous comment and the net ate it. Gist was that your hair is fantastic - your voice is sweet - and I only wish I had lovely, thick, wavy hair like that to try the look. Alas.


Kayla March 18, 2009 at 3:04 am

I’ll have to try it!
