Got a perm and had a curly mullet style. I LOVED it, so did my kids. I could shampoo, rinse, shake my hair and be done.
Shoulder pads were (and are) idea for giving some shape to my dumpy figure, ditto for the skinny pants with shoulder-padded tunic top. And pleated waistbands left room for the muffin part of my muffin waist.
And big earrings - gosh, I love big earrings! Still got some.

I had the big relaxed hair and shoulder pads. I'm sure I liked the fashions back then, wouldn't do it now.
I LOVE 80s music. I keep it on repeat on pandora. Prince's and George Michael's deaths hit me hard.

Nope, I've always kept my hair short. There was a period when I let the top grow and shaved the sides and back but it was very short lived. In the 80's I did have blond highlights though.

But we didn't wear those IZODs with shoulder pads. And I was a girl who sported a mullet and a rattail, tied with a ribbon the same color as the bandana around my right ankle, worn over my parachute pants that were stuffed into my high-top Nikes with the tongue unlaced.

The mullet was more of a blue-collar hairstyle where I lived. Most guys I knew had some version of the center part "butthead" haircut like this one:

Remember the stirrup pants? I had some black ones with big pink polka dots and a pink sweater I bought from the Limited.
I lived in stirrup pants.

I had a mohawk. This was before the style became predominant among toddlers.

I tried to grow my hair long, but all it did was grow "up". It looked like a big fluffy fro. And I had numerous cowlicks in different directions, so the only thing I could do was to keep it short, what I do to this day. No styling, just wash and forget it.
