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?

Oh NO! on

I never follow trends anyway, but I hope this one goes away. Fast! Christina’s hair looks terrible. Tyra’s hair isn’t quite as horrid, although she looks like a drag queen in this picture.

who cares on

Crimping hair went out in 4th grade, along with leggings and mary jane shoes.

i for one am never going to crimp my hair… nobody should aspire to look like a human accordion. *cough cough* christina! *cough cough*
it looks good on tyra, though. very elegant–not wild like christina’s “windblown poodle” hair.

crimped hair is not flattering on anyone.

HotSnot on

I thought this was Dog the bounty hunter’s wife!

Stella on

Tyra looks good :)

It’s not cute!The “Poodle Hairdo” not very attractive.The 80’s look is coming back-no thanks.

NO! I love the 80’s as well, I grew up in the 80’s but even back then with long hair I wouldn’t do that to my hair. I think it ranks right up there with spandex.

the idea of having to peg my jeans, wear jellies, and crimp my hair mortifies me. i was 8 years old once and that was sufficient. WHY are we bringing this back?

I think Tina looks fantastique. If you’re going to crimp it, you can’t pretend it’s elegant. It’s a no BS teenaged wild child throwout from when punk went suburbia. Think Valley Girl apres the Valley. Tyra looks apologetic.
