How to Get 1980's Hair

80's Hair is Big and Blown OUT!

I personally have naturally curly red hair.  During the 80's everyone had big hair, high bangs and outrageous earrings to accentuate the hair.  Blue eyeliner was trending as well as purples, dark browns and tons of mascara.

The Steps to 1980's Big Hair

  • Shampoo hair as normal, wrap in towel until it is no longer dripping wet.
  • Apply super hold mouse, yes mouse, it must be airy.
  • Allow hair to set for 5 to 10 minutes while you apply makeup.
  • Scrunch hair from time to time while applying makeup and or getting dressed.
  • Hang head upside down and scrunch hair several times until you feel the volume increase in your locks.

80's Fashions and Styles

I Love the 80s Shirt

Slouchy 80s Shirt

The shirts or tees of the eighties had huge necks.

These slouchy tees were designed to hang off one shoulder as illustrated above. Now pay attention to detail and get it right.

It's simple, allow the one side to hang down low enough and you will be comfortable with it and in no time at all forget the one side is hanging off balance.  Check it out it is a rad look don't you think?

Get your leg warmer to the right, these come in the yellow you see here, lime green parakeet yellow, neon orange and the pink you see above.  Your color choice really doesn't matter.

Don't Forget the Legwarmers

Uggs are no longer the hot trend in boots. A green footwear otherwise known as Bearpaws boots is taking over and with good reason? Get great deals here on hot stylish boot!

Cindy Lauper made these gloves hot. She really knew how to rock the eighties styles. Cindy Lauper along with Madonna made these fashion trends an 80s fashion staple.

Dress Like Cyndi Lauper

How to Wear 80's Eye shadow

Check out Cyndi Laupers eye shadow above, she is wearing it perfect. We mostly wore a lot of black eyeliner both top and bottom.  Eye shadow was worn in blues, browns,and coppers of varying shades all the way up to the brow.  Darker shades were worn near the eye lashes and the shades got lighter and lighter working up and into the brow area. 

Lip gloss was a big deal, bright shiny lips were everywhere.  Many girls wore lipstick in coppers and pinks but topped it off with lots of gloss. You gotta take the gloss with you to apply over and over as it wears off.

Love the 80s fashion - not that I'd wear any of it but the leg warmers bring back fond memories of Fame, Madonna and lots of fun pop music :) I can't believe the 80s is so far back now that it's retro. Where did the time go? Your article is spot on with the costume advice.
