These days, anything goes, especially 80s short hairstyles. When we think of this era, big, teased volume comes to mind, but the look that you crave can be created on short hairstyles. Whether you have a curly bob or a short pixie cut, we have the 80s look for you!
80s Hairstyles for Short Hair
Take a look at the below 7 funky short hairstyles for women inspired from the 80s.
1. Pixie with Long Bangs
Edgy layers were just as popular then as they are now. Make your short hair interesting with long side bangs cut on an angle. This look suits every face shape and works for a short pixie or pixie bob. We can’t resist the icy blonde color, either!
2. Frizzy Texture
Evoking this decade is all about creating bold volume. For gorgeous, natural hair, create height but keep the style tight by cropping hair close over the ears. This vintage hairstyle is also easy to braid if you feel like switching it up.
3. Icy Pixie Cut
The key to 80s short hair was volume and height. All you need is an inch or two to coiff your pixie locks. Separate strands with a gel and comb for a look that is perfect for a night out.
4. Curly Bob
Flashdance, anyone? A big bob with a thick fringe is the perfect way to rock short, curly hair. To give hair this rounded effect, cut short layers at the top of the head and slightly throughout the length of the hair.
5. Voluminous Bob For Fine Hair
You don’t have to have tons of hair to get the iconic look of the 1980s. Think height and volume as you tease and spray your short tresses. This look is great for oval face shapes.
6. Mini Mullet
These days, mullets are actually cool, especially if your hair is straight, rather than puffy and curly. Create lots of texture with short layers and a short, piecey fringe. Your hair shouldn’t reach farther than the nape of your neck.

7. Flat Top Pixie
This hairstyle was also popular in the 90s! This literal take on 80s hairstyle involves lots of mousse or gel to get hair to stand up straight. Hair should be worn down and flat on the sides of the head to make this style shine.
It’s easy to rock the best looks from the 80s, even if your hair is short! In fact, less hair means less to work with for easier and quicker styling. Will you be trying any of these looks?
