Curly Crop Hairstyle

By Hope DeAngelis Schmid

The ’80s revival trend shows no sign of stopping! The daring curly crop, reminiscent of ’80s pop star Belinda Carlisle, is the latest resurrected hairstyle of that decade. It’s characterized by short or shaved sides and longer, loose curls on top that cascade forward toward the face. Finish the look by adding a touch of color with either highlights or a streak of bright neon, like hot pink. This short, curly hairstyle makes a bold statement that pairs well with this season’s ’80s-inspired styles, like military jackets and oversized knits.

If the avant-garde curly crop is too funky for you -- or if you don’t want to commit to a cut -- try the front bun. (Think Madonna from her “Boy Toy” days.) The front bun works best for medium-length hair. To do it yourself, pull the sides back tight and the rest of the hair up and forward into a bun. Swirl it toward the front of your head and off to one side.
