This was a push for rebel punk meets boy band quiff finessed through to the modern with an allure of its own. These fauxhawk styles were inspired by some looks I saw on the streets of Los Angeles. 80s inspired Rock 'n' Roll punk with a nod to boy band styles of the time—straight up sides and quiff. It's all about defined texture. Think eighties bleach 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 boomed in the eighties era offering elaborate hair cutting techniques that needed little to no styling - the haircut was the style.

The 80s signaled an era of leisure for the hair obsessed, meaning no more having to spend hours in front of the mirror an array of hair tools at 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, flash it with some hairspray or gel, and you're ready to roll.
These days, hair trends move 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.
Think style cocktail - Billy Idol, Samantha Fox, Debby Harry, Brigitte Nielsen - shaken up, stirred, and poured out in a textured finish with stylish edge.
