Crimped Hair is Back -- Will You Wear It?

When we first spotted Christina Aguilera on a photoshoot with wild hair, we chalked it up to an over-the-top editorial look. But when Tyra Banks hit the streets of N.Y.C. to tape her show with a bevy of gorgeous models in perfectly crimped hair, our worst suspicions were confirmed — along with pegged jeans and neon colors, the ’80s revival is bringing back crimped hair. We retired our crimping irons with our scunchies and fingerless lace gloves a long time ago, but considering that we’ve even seen this trend on the haute couture runways of Paris, we might not have a choice! Tell us: Will you crimp your hair? Do you like the look?

Christina looks like a freak, I love Tyra but not the hair. This is one style they should never bring back.

My worst fear has come true….crimped hair is back…UGH! Are we so desperate for fashion that we need to go back rather than creating new trends….

Crimped hair was awful in the eighties, and it’s awful now. Hopelessly bored celebrities will do anything to try and trendset,and I do mean TRY.

Oh sure. After over two years of colouring, blow drying and flat ironing, let’s crimp it! Let’s totally *!@#$ it. Maybe next year, pulling it out at the roots will be in and maybe, just maybe we can then visit the Sinnead O’Connor look.

Lam on

Not if it looks like either of those two!!!!

I NEVER LIKED IT THE FIRST TIME AROUND, AND I STILL DO NOT LIKE IT, I WOULD NEVER WEAR MY HAIR LIKE THAT.

Twisted (sister)XTina! Maybe she could remake “we’re not gonna take it” while she is at it!
