According to the runways, 1980s looks are officially back in fashion—from bold shoulders to metallics and colored tights. So naturally, you should you wear your hair to match. And boy, was it a great decade for hair. Curly queens like Cher, Donna Summer, and Julia Roberts went big and bold. While straight-haired rock stars like Stevie Nicks and Cyndi Lauper teased and ironed theirs straight up, adding some red and pink dye for a pop of color. The real color of choice, however, was bleach blonde, particularly for pixie cuts, and Madonna, Annie Lennox, and even Cher (again) sported the cut long before Guy Fieri. In sum, the '80s were all about volume, glam, and rock 'n' roll. And lucky for supermodel Christie Brinkley—the blonde bombshell of the decade—she had (almost) all of the above. To help inspire you today, here's a look back at the most iconic hairstyles from the 1980s.
