Crimped Hair Is Making A Comeback In *Waves* Of Style

Crimped hair was very popular in the 80’s and 90’s. I always look back at old pictures of my mom to see “the 80’s poof” which was so common and is now pretty laughable. Crimped hair started to become old news for a while, and whenever I would see old hair crimping photos, I always thought that it was just a wild and over the top look. But, recently, celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Tyra Banks have been experimenting with crimped hair.

Nowadays, celebrities are bringing in a more subtle crimp that just adds a little more texture and wave to your hair. Being a person with short hair, I did not know if the crimping trend would really work on my own hair. However, last weekend, my sister asked to crimp my hair just to see how it would turn out. Unlike the “giant poof of the 80’s,” my hair turned into beachy waves. The perfect amount of curl!

Usually I have issues of my curls not lasting very long or overnight, but I woke up the next morning to discover that my waves were still there! I would highly recommend buying a crimping iron and trying it out. You can purchase them inexpensively at beauty stores like Ulta or even Target. Crimping irons are so easy to use and if you are looking for that perfect wave, then it is definitely the right option for you!
