We are always talking about the next big trend in hairstyles but there have been some big mistakes over the years. We are here to remind you of them!
The eighties hair philosophy was the bigger the better. This sentiment was definitely carried out with the perm, which was tousled to look as big as possible. This style came with a mousse build up hazard and the strong aroma of hairspray.
Nothing says “big hair” like a beehive. Women sported this “hair-don’t” by teasing their hair upwards with masses of hairspray, usually in a tall shape that mimicked a beehive. This was another over-styled look that left the hair dry and brittle. You can however achieve a more subtle, demure beehive aka Audrey Hepburn that looks great. Just avoid the Amy Winehouse look!
This style was brought into the mainstream by celebrities in the 1970s but was actually more popular in the 1980s. It is short on the top and sides then the hair was left long down the back. This is now deemed a comedy look and is usually used as entertainment with fancy dress shops stocking many varieties.
We can thank the eighties for another eccentric look. There were no straighteners in sight and it was all about the grooved ceramic irons to create a crinkly look. However there has been a recent crimping revival happening so be warned!
Best of all is the comb over. People have used this style for years in an attempt to hide baldness. The irony is that this style makes it much more apparent that the individual is bald. We say grow old gracefully, be bald and proud.
The girls at Studio 18 had a lot of fun compiling these hairstyles we love to hate! However don’t find yourself in a hair disaster, pop in for a consultation and we’ll find the right style for you.
