Side ponytail is one of the simplest 80s hairstyles that anyone with medium to long hair can pull off is the. The higher the ponytail and the bigger the scrunchie, the better this hairdo looks. Simply gather your hair towards a side as if you were preparing a normal ponytail and then brush it.

Big Perm is something that instantly takes us back to the 80s. You can get permed hair at any salon and then use special volume enhancing products to give your hair a fuller look like that of 80s. A perm looks even better and even more like 80s if you already have natural curls. Just make sure that you do not perm too often as this can dry out and damage your hair very severely. Keep those gorgeous curls moisturized.
If you’re not ready to commit to a perm, you can get temporary curls by using small rollers overnight or using a curling iron.
Crimped hair is another popular style that takes us straight to the 80s. This look is incredibly easy to achieve. If you have time and are ready to put in some extra efforts, you can get crimps just by braiding all of your hair into tiny braids and sleeping with them overnight. The next morning when you take the braids out, you will have an instant head full of crimps and you can simply spray and go.
If you are short of time and don’t want to sleep on a head full of braids, you can try getting the look with any curling iron or flat iron set to maximum heat. You can simply make crimps by closing the iron on your hair and then in a wave-like motion moving down the section of hair to create crimps throughout. You can also get crimping iron for quicker and more polished looking crimps.
