We can all agree that the 80’s hair boom was one of the most remarkable cultural phenomena of the 20th century.
From the hair bands and the hair beads to the hairstyles and the hairstylists, the decade was a time when the US was at its peak.
It was a decade that saw the rise of the American style, the US style that would become the global norm.
It also marked the arrival of hair culture in the US and around the world.
And although the hairstyle and hairstylist were not the main focus of the 80ies, they certainly had an influence on the fashion industry and fashion trends.
And that influence would continue to have a major impact on the lives of millions of women and men over the years.
