Hair Trend: the '80s perm makes a comeback!

Hair Trend: the '80s perm makes a comeback!

by Paige Exell -

When the resurgence of '90s fashion hit the spring-summer 2016 runways in the form of grungy eyeliner, matte brown lips, and Courtney Love-inspired hair accessories, we thought the era would be the reigning period of the season – that is, until now.

As of late, stars by the likes of Jenna Dewan Tatum, Karlie Kloss , Hailey Baldwin, Gigi Hadid, and most recently, Blake Lively , have brought back a new decade of choice through their voluminous hairstyles: the '80s. At one point or another, the stylish bunch translated the tight, voluminous curls of the disco days into modern day for their appearances on the catwalk, red carpet, and even on the streets.

Ready to bring back the '80s and recreate this look with a new, modern twist? We've got everything you need to know to adopt the latest hair trend with ease.

HAIR TREND: THE '80S PERM IS BACK!

We first spotted the voluminous perm-y look at Diane von Furstenberg's spring-summer 2016 runway show, where L'Oreal muse and model Karlie Kloss turned heads with tight curls that defined Diane's own days as a young adult in the '80s. The voluminous look is a sexy style that has the power to turn up the heat no matter what outfit you chose.

And while the perm of the '80s was more poodle-esque, the modern version of the style comes with a supermodel-approved middle part or a cool half-up 'do that holds serious rock-n-roll potential.

WHO STARTED THE BUZZ? JENNA DEWAN TATUM

Channing Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum, created quite the buzz on Instagram when she posted a selfie that showed off her large, voluminous curls. Her permed look was swept across her face for a sultry appeal. The best part about Jenna's Instagram display of her new 'do? She shows us that this trend is doable on just about anyone – no matter how long or short your hair may be!

BLAKE LIVELY: BEACH-Y VOLUME

The 80s-inspired perm is a trend that seems to be catching on like wildfire with celebs, with L'Oreal muse Blake Lively, the most recent celeb to rock the look, stepping out in New York City on Wednesday sporting a head full of tight curls from top to bottom. In true Blake Lively fashion, she wore a more beach-y version of the look, wearing her hair down, tightly curled, and free.

To achieve her look, wrap small sections of your hair around a small barrel curling wand, starting from the root and ending at the tip of your hair to create full-on '80s curls all over.

HAILEY BALDWIN: SUBTLE VOLUME

Hailey Baldwin is also among the celebs who have recently taken on this wild '80s hair trend, styling her slightly looser, voluminous curls with her freshly cut layered bangs – girl knows how to work the seasons trends!

Meanwhile, supermodel Gigi Hadid posted a photo of herself on Instagram sporting a Sandra Dee-esque curly up-do that gave the old-school look a modern twist.

Inspired enough to try the trend for yourself? Grab your small barrel curling iron, some hairspray and give it a go!
