Something a little different from my usual smiley expression 😃
But I’ve been watching 1980s game shows and flipping through 1980s magazines and looking through 1980s star’s headshots and it has been pretty inspiring! 💄
So here’s a fun 1980s look I put together from some styles I saw...
Curly, wavy, and crimped hair was the biggest thing to come from that time, with teasing done especially in the crown and bangs.
But one interesting thing I’ve been noticing was a trend of bangs pulled back flat against the scalp and then teased like crazy at the crown. It makes me think of a pineapple but it was actually a lot of fun to wear 😂🍍
Another trend I picked up on was brushing your eyebrows up for a thick and feathery look...that was fun to try also 🦚
There were sooo many different ways to do your hair and makeup in the 1980s, and many styles were complete opposites of each other.
What it really boils down to is taste.
Some teased their hair to the heavens...and some preferred smooth and flat hair.
Some preferred natural soft makeup...others preferred looking like rockstars. Some didn’t even wear makeup!
There’s no one strict way to capture an era in just one look because every era is made up of so many different styles. So just have fun with it, and remember to always go to the source for accurate representation! 😊
