How we're recreating our favourite 80s hairstyles for summer

We've got no shame this summer! It's time for a 1980s hair extravaganza! Too young or too shy to try it last time? Now's your chance!

Curly Wurly

If you're from the Curly Wurly generation (and Wispas and Yorkies) then you'll remember the tight curls, the XXL afro and the thin waffle curls that were everywhere in the 80s. The good news is that they are sizzling again this summer. Roll back the years, and join in the fun.

Embrace the frizz thanks to L'Oréal Professionnel Mousse Spiral Queen Hollywood Waves, just the thing to nourish and cherish your curls, giving max definition and oomph to your hair.

The scarf bun

A hot favourite 80s accessory, the scarf came in so handy. You could wear it here, there and everywhere. And, yep, it still looks cool wrapped around that top-knot bun.

 

What the editors say: Used to borrow your mum's Hermes-style equestrian print scarf? We all did – now we've got our own, it works even better. Got to love the classic French chic scarves for the real 80s look, but you can also adapt with whatever your favourite is – skulls, neon – whatever takes your fancy!

 

The Uppy Downy

Typical 80s teen, this one was a favourite for our TV series girl crushes. Simply select the top section of your hair and tie up in a half ponytail at the back of the head. The tighter, the higher, the more 80s you go.

 

It looks adorable with a few stray bangs, a total cutie look that screams #throwback loud and clear. Easy-peasy! And, yes you can work it with a scrunchie. Go for velvet for the most authentic look.
