These fauxhawk styles were inspired by some looks I saw on the streets of L.A. Rock 'n' roll punk with an 80s flavor and a nod to 80s boy band styles of straight up sides and quiff. It's all about a defined texture and style. Think eighties bleached blonde, peroxide white, with a soft crimp
The crimping iron was all the rage in the 80s adding pizzazz to style, much like rollers were synonymous with the 60s. Hair salon franchises also boomed in the eighties era, offering elaborate hair cutting techniques that needed little to no styling - the haircut was the style.

The 80s meant no more having to spend hours in front of the mirror, hair tools in hand. It was simply cut to go, maintenance was minimal: get out of bed, bend your head down, shake it up, run your fingers through it and you're ready to roll. This was a huge development from 70s haircuts which were more basic, neutral and styling was a must to a finished look.
Today hair trends move more between the 80s and 90s. For this look I didn't want to bend the style towards another popular hairstyle of the 80s - jet-set glam. This was a push for rebel punk meets boyband quiff finessed through to the modern with an allure all of its own.
Think style cocktail - Billy Idol, Samantha Fox, Debby Harry, Brigitte Nielsen - shaken up, stirred and poured out in a textured finish with stylish edge.
