About This Quiz

The '80s was a decade that will always be remembered for unique style, synthesizer music and some ghastly hairstyles. The trend was to grow the hair out then tease it, feather it, spike it and totally own it. Much of the hairstyling, as with most decades, it magnified through pop culture. Music in the '80s jumped out of the speakers and into the television set with the incorporation of MTV. Along with seeing your favorite band belt out tunes on the TV, you could now see their style and go out and match it. The popularity of a musician's style was a direct contributor to some of the most iconic hairstyles of the '80s. With a go-girl attitude, musicians like Madonna and Cyndi Lauper were style icons that girls wanted to dress like and do their hair like. 

The flashy style was not left to only the ladies. Men were just as style-centric with their dress and hair alike. Though David Bowie rocked it in the '70s, the mullet hairstyle really came into its own in the '80s. And nobody can argue with the cool and rebellious Mohawk. Mr. T matched his haircut with his attitude on the TV show The A-Team and the cut became synonymous with being a bad boy. Get out the hairspray for this quiz and we'll guess what kind of '80s haircut you should rock!
