Back in the 80s, crimped hair came to the fore as part of the ‘bigger is better’ trend that encompassed clothes, nails, hair and just about everything else. Adding a whole other level of volume, crimping ensured that every strand stood out and added a cool new texture to your look. Edgy, daring and bursting with life, stars like Madonna and Cyndi Lauper were some of the first to grab their hair crimping irons and get styling.
Hair crimping in the 90s continued to be a big deal, but became more associated with feminine and girlish looks as it was paired with hair highlights and accessories. Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Drew Barrymore as well as many more all relied on the crimped look heavily throughout the decade, making it one of the most memorable 90s hairstyles.
