Crimped Hair is Back -- Will You Wear It?

When we first spotted Christina Aguilera on a photoshoot with wild hair, we chalked it up to an over-the-top editorial look. But when Tyra Banks hit the streets of N.Y.C. to tape her show with a bevy of gorgeous models in perfectly crimped hair, our worst suspicions were confirmed — along with pegged jeans and neon colors, the ’80s revival is bringing back crimped hair. We retired our crimping irons with our scunchies and fingerless lace gloves a long time ago, but considering that we’ve even seen this trend on the haute couture runways of Paris, we might not have a choice! Tell us: Will you crimp your hair? Do you like the look?

I don’t like the way Christina did hers, it’s way too crazy/poofy…but I think it looks really elegant on Tyra…I’m not sure if I’ll wear the look only b/c I have short hair and I think crimping was meant for long hair.

With highwaisted belts, neon color clothes, crimped hair coming back does remind me of the good ol’ 80’s fashion, but I don’t get too excited since I’ve seen this stuff coming for years very slowly. Now, if I saw celebrities rockin’ L.A. Gear- that would worry me more than the crimped hair =}


this is a complain nothing to do with the picture, why was the format to viewing pictures changed, is so annoying having to wait for a new window to download just to see a couple of pictures.

Crimped hair has always reminded me of pheasant feathers. Tyra looks okay but Xtina looks awful. Plus we all know that neither of these ladies’ hair is real – Xtina has practically made herself bald with all of her hair treatments, and Tyra is probably going down that same path.

Oh gosh is dead poodle hair back in style?
There isn’t a chance that I would wear that.
If everyone starts wearing that then I’ll be forced to believe that everyone is following mindless trends.

I have to say it does look good on Tyra, but Xtina I beleieve it was for a photo shoot, and it fit the photo they were trying to do. I have really long hair and I don’t think I would do this.
So 80’s

I’m more into the waving iron than the crimping iron. Does that count?

I hated 80 style when it was the 80s. Please, don’t let it come back!

Horrible! It wasn’t pretty then and it isn’t pretty now… it makes the end of the hair look scraggly and ewwwww…. no. I loved the 80’s and their are a lot of the fashions that I would love to see come back…. that, is not one of them.
