Tell us: What do you think of 80's Haircuts?

08/31/2006 at 01:54 PM ET

We already knew about ankle boots and skinny jeans, but now it looks like the 80’s are coming back for hairstyles, too. Or do VMA nominee Pink (left) and singer Kelis just have the same hairdresser? They are definitely both channeling a tougher, punkier look these days that suits their risk-taking styles. Just as long as no one starts looking like Flock of Seagulls. . . Tell us: Is this a look that you think is coming back into style? Would you ever wear it?

The 80’s were the best decade ever and i wish they would come back. these hairstyles are awsum and so are these two girls coz they look better than the rest of the boring people in this decade

I think their cuts are AWESOME! I was actually looking to get my hair cut similiar to this before seeing these pics. However, the hairstylist didn’t grasp the concept & it went all wrong. It’s an attitude, not all gals are strong, sexy, & confident enough to wear such a bold feminine look. These 2 definately rock it though.

I love Pink, I think she is totally unique and daring, I love her with short hair. I have shaved my head a few times and a lot of people have told me that I look like Pink, so maybe this will be my new hairdo!! Awesome styles!!

First off who are ANY of you to determine what is “pretty” or “feminine” second of all both kelis AND pink are beautiful women…clearly short cuts are only for confident WOMEN not insecure little girls who have to hide behind their “pretty” long hair which is “in” because they’re too insecure to try something different for fear that they might actually be *gasp*…unique… LIKE TOTALLY OMG! And personally as a black female I am sooo used to people of my race and other races only considering me pretty when my hair is long and straight, I now wear my hair in its natural curly/kinky state (check the myspace: http://www.myspace.com/soofficial), and am about to cut it short because 1. I am confident enough in the fact that I will still be bautiful and 2. because…well its just easier to work with haha…but regardless, femininity has NOTHING to do with the length of your hair…

p.s. uh im not feelin pink’s as much as kelis’ simply because pinks hair unlike kelis sticks up and doesnt look as cute as kelis’

I LOVE KELIS HAIRCUT I THINK THAT SHE ROCKS IT VERY WELL AND I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED HER STYLE CAUSE SHE IS ALWAYS SO UNIQUE AND HERSELF. BUT YEAH I LOVE THE 8O’S LOOK AND I HAVE ALWAYS. THE CRAZY THING IS THAT I CUT MY HAIR THIS SUMMER AND THE STYLE I CUT IT WAS THE SAME AS KELIS SO I WAS SO SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT IT WAS THE STYLE CAUSE I WAS JUST GOING FOR A NEW LOOK.

I think the 80’s fashion, music, tv ect were the best.

Would like to see a return of that style with a new age look.
