Blowouts – The 80’s Are Back!

Trendsetting lifestyle brand Refinery29 recently highlighted a huge – pun intended! – hair trend: the 80’s. Let’s take a look at all the ways the 80s are making it back into our lives with these blowout trends.

Bombshell – Every generation has its version of the bombshell, but the 80’s arguably had the best. We’re talking the bigger the better. More volume, more curls, more attitude. But, with better-quality products, we can achieve that spectacular size without leaving hair crunchy and fried-feeling.

Big & Slick – Volume at the crown, sleek and smooth down to the root, this style is bold, beautiful and bound to attract plenty of attention

The Brigitte Bardot(s) – Women in the 80’s were gaga over Brigitte’s two signature looks, and both iconic styles are still perfect for today. For a more effortless look, go for straight with natural volume and easy textured waves. Or, go with soft, super-shiny waves cascading down around your face.

What’s Up with Updos

Simple buns. Intricate braids. Elegant twists. Updos are a beautiful way to make any special occasion more special or just add a little extra to your day. We’ve spotted a few unique updos recently that we’re itching to try out on your hair!

French Twist Meets Low Bun – We are OBSESSED with this effortless modern take on a French Twist. Strands are twisted downward before ending a slightly messy bun, with a few pieces pulled out to frame the face. Perfectly imperfect.

Braided Beauty – Big braids, little braids, loose braids tight braids. Why choose one when you can have it all and look amazing!

Pony Up – A fancy ponytail? That’s right! Glam up the humble ponytail with a little curl, a little twist and a little barrette for a casual cool look that everyone will want to copy.
