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?

Heck yeah, I still wear my hair crimped on occasion, but it looks more like Tyra’s…I am not into the helmet hair thing.

I love crimped hair! I still have my original crimping iron from the 80’s, when I was just a little girl in spandex and lace. You know that this new 80’s craze won’t last for too much longer–so I for one plan on soaking it up and enjoying it while I can!

HAHAHA. I like how just because Christina Aguilera and Tyra Banks had crimped hair, it’s suddenly ‘back’ in style. Remember when Christina Aguilera had that hideous crimped hair around the time of Lady Marmalade? Well it was ugly then and it’s ugly now. Sorry, but this is a stupid trend.

Ugh, I dislike crimped hair so badly. It doesn’t flatter anyone although Tyra did wear the hair “style” (though that is to kind a term) better than Christina who looks way too over the top.

I do remember envying my 4th grade classmate when she crimped her hair. However that style should never make a comeback.

Christina looks like a zombie bride aka hideous tyra i think pulls the look off and looks good doing it i personally would not wear only because i’m twelve an would look stupid and like a six year old i personally think that a regular person wouldn’t be able to pull that off and would look stupid it always seems that some stuff only looks good on the celebs in my opinion the crimped hair should not come back.
