No more than a week after our esteemed blogger, Laura Martin, boldly predicted that the 80s are back does Rihanna step out in a look so 80s that we feel like putting Whitney’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” on the walkman and bounce that curly pony like we just don’t care. We can’t get you the Vivienne Westwood dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, or the Mikimot Jewelry Ri-Ri wore for her fragrance launch, but this hairstyle is right up our alley.

If you’re already sick of the ‘70s, get excited because there’s a new decade on trend––the ‘80s. In London, at J.W. Anderson, the clothes and the hair took some guidance from the early parts of the decade. Backstage, the beauty pros went new wave by saturating models hair in whip and twisting and pulling it into a chignon. To finish the look, they secured the bun with a cheap plastic comb often found in London’s discount stores. This “I’ve-have-been-partying-all-night” hair was well aligned with the ‘80s great taste/ bad taste mood of the show and a certainly a stand out in the sea of ’70s waves. Excited about this look? Get yourself a plastic comb and dance to Wham! See the best looks from the show in the style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart
