Trend alert: Crazy 80s curls

Warning! Warning! The trend alarm is going off in our office. What's it picked up this time? Only the perfect party hairstyle... crazy 80s curls!

So get your curlers ready and your hairspray to hand, because we're taking a trip back into hairstyle history in order to bring back a contemporary version of those colossal coils from the eighties.

Have you got a hidden hankering for huge hair? Unleash the curly beast inside you, and get ready to disco!

Will you suit crazy curls?

Whether you'll suit crazy curls depends more on the length and shape of the cut itself and not so much on the curls themselves. Mid-length curls with bangs, for example, can really reduce the length of a naturally oblong face shape, while curls on shorter hair that stop around the jaw can soften a square-shaped face.

How do you create 80s curls?

An easy way to get your curl on is to book an appointment with your hair stylist, who will use the Dulcia Advanced Tonique Lotion to create classic tight curls with a beautifully natural bounce.

However, if you're more of a DIY girl, or have naturally curly hair already, start with some Tecni.Art Pli Thermo-modelling spray on towel-dried hair before using your curling irons (if necessary) and get extra volume once dry with the Wild Stylers Savage Panache Styling Powder, ideal for enhancing curly styles. To prepare your hair for curling, or to define your natural bounce, the Curl Contour Shampoo and Mask help enhance the look, feel and hold of curls, whether natural or not.

Different ways to wear voluminous curls

We love the look this model is working. Her piecey, textured curls softly flatter her face, while a pop of bright color around the neck gives energy and a sense of whimsy. With crazy 80s curls, don't be afraid to turn up the glamour - it's a naturally fun style, so don't get too serious! Bangs are also a good way of keeping your perm-like look in the present day.
