The ’80s brought us mullets, crimped looks, and heavy loads of hairspray.
The bigger the better.
While we may wish to forget some of the do’s, some pulled off hair-raising styles.
Next week, National Geographic is airing a three-night special: “The ’80s: The Decade That Made Us.”

Prepare to relive the rise of Calvin Klein jeans by Brooke Shields, Pac-Man, the Walkman, Jane Fonda’s workout videos, and, of course, the hairstyles.
