80S FLUFFY HAIR: How did people in the 80s get their hair so big?
I’m serious. What kind of sorcery is this? I’ve been trying to figure out how people in the 1980s got their hair so big, but I can’t seem to replicate it. My hair just sort of… lies there on my head. There’s no volume and no body, and that’s not what I want! So today, we’re going to look at a method that will give you the fluffy ‘do of your dreams—one that was once used by such celebrities as Madonna herself:
First, you need a hair dryer.
First, you need a hair dryer. The one I use is a Babyliss Pro 1 inch Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer, but you can get one that’s right for your budget and needs.
Once you have chosen your dryer and turned it on, make sure it’s on a low setting–you don’t want to overheat or damage your hair! Next, flip over so that your head is upside down and start drying from the ends inwards until all of it has been dried off. Don’t use any brushes or combs because these can break off strands of hair which will make them look bigger than they really are (and we don’t want that).
Then, you’ll want to pin your hair up while it’s wet.
- First, you’ll want to pin your hair up while it’s wet. The best way to do this is by using bobby pins.
- Next, start at the crown of your head and work down the sides in sections–you should use a lot of bobby pins!
If you’re not sure what kind of style will work best for you, try out different things until something clicks!
Once your hair is dry, you should tease it.
Once your hair is dry, you should tease it. Teasing is a way to add volume to your hair by separating the top layer and teasing it out with a comb. It’s optional, but recommended. You can do this on dry or wet hair–the choice is yours!
You should start at the crown of your head, separating the top layer of hair and teasing it out with a comb.
The first step to achieving that big 80s hairstyle is to separate the top layer of hair. You should start at the crown of your head, separating the top layer of hair and teasing it out with a comb.
If you have thin or fine hair, try using small sections instead of one large chunk if you want more volume. Tame flyaways with hairspray before moving on to step two!
Then move on down to your layers, teasing out each piece one-by-one as you go.
Once you’ve teased the top and sides of your hair, it’s time to move on down to your layers. Start by teasing out each piece one-by-one as you go. Don’t overdo it, though! You don’t want this look to be too much for anyone who sees it–you want it to be big but still natural looking. Use just enough hairspray so that each strand is stiff enough not fall out of place during the night, but not so much that it feels crunchy or sticky against your skin.
This official method also involves hairspray, which is optional but recommended!
- Spray hairspray onto your teased hair. This step is optional, but recommended if you want to keep that big fluffy look all day long!
- Use a good quality hairspray. Cheap ones can leave your hair feeling greasy and weighed down.
- Don’t use too much–a couple of spritzes here and there should be enough to keep the volume in place without making it look like you’re wearing a helmet made out of cotton candy (which would be cool).
- Wait until all the product has dried before going outside or doing anything else that requires interaction with other human beings who might judge you for having 80s-style hair.
We hope you’ve learned a lot about how to get fluffy 80s hair! After reading this article, we’re sure that you’ll be ready to try out some of these methods for yourself. Remember: it’s all about having fun with your style and making sure that your look reflects who you are as an individual.
