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 crimped the heck out of my hair back in the day. I would do it again, because I loved the 80’s, except it takes FOREVER to crimp your whole head properly!

i crimped my hair. it is so hard to do, you have to make sure each section of “crimp” follows the other! Like putting up wallpaper!! LOL
I like Tyra’s,
Xtina, c’mon, why even ask?

I did not crimp my hair in the 80’s but I totally crimped my hair about a year ago (so did I bring this trend back). Mind you, I did not crimp the whole head, just a few select strands for a hint of drama!

Oh gosh no. I lived it in the 80’s and nearly lost all my hair because of it. LOL It’s no more attractive now then it was then. As for Christina, why is it that high end designers make the models look as far out as possible? Real people don’t dress like that. LOL

Hmmm…it’s actually NOT back. Wow, these pics are really not convincing. Try again.

Are you sure this isn’t Linda Hogan, maybe a younger version?

I’m all over it! I still have my crimper!!!

I think that Christina looks frightening and, while Tyra looks great, I don’t see myself wearing my hair like that. It reminds me too much of Barbie and her friend Kyra.

MK on

Ummm absolutely not!!!!!!1 It’s still as bad as it used to be!!!!!It’s horrible!! I would never wear it!!!!!

I use to crimp my hair all the time back in the 80’s. I still have my crimping iron and have crimped my daughters hair many times. I love the look on Tyra. I would do it now for going out dancing or hitting the night life. Halloween is a fun time to crimp.
