Easy 80′s Hair

Personally, I did not have very stylish hair in the 80′s. Half of the 80′s I had two braids like Pipi Longstocking, and the other half consisted of the ‘feathered look’, the perm, and then the perm with a claw attached. Shudder. Looking back at the 80′s through the eyes of nostalgia, cinema and music, there were some really great hair styles. Robert Smith, I love you. Also, I really loved Susan Surandon’s hair in The Hunger though I’d not the courage to go short. Not after what happened in the 90′s. Shudder. Anyway, last week, when I was trying to figure out what to do with my hair for the Complex Geometries post I decided I needed something more dramatic than the regular mop I have a the moment, and with a twist and a clip, I came up with this updo. A few of you commented how much you liked it, so I decided to share the love in a video.

It only takes a few seconds, I swear.

    Had a fabulous comment and the net ate it. Gist was that your hair is fantastic – your voice is sweet – and I only wish I had lovely, thick, wavy hair like that to try the look. Alas.
