If you have a teenage boy at home you may have noticed a resurgence of hairstyles that were popular in the 80’s. Here are three looks your son may ask for the next time he’s in the salon:

  • The Men’s Perm: Perms have been a popular hairstyle for women for decades, but recently, the perm has become a trendy men’s hairstyle as well. The men’s perm is achieved by using chemicals to create curls or waves in the hair, same as you would for a women’s prem. The result is a unique and stylish look that can add volume and texture to any hair type. This style is perfect for those who want to add some personality to their hair and make a statement. Men’s perms have gained popularity thanks to apps like TikTok showcasing men experimenting with different hair looks all with a light-hearted, comedic aire to them. Young men are able to try styles that previously may have been considered more feminine without worrying about being teased by their peers.

  • The Mullet: The mullet is a hairstyle that has been around for many years but has recently made a comeback. This style is characterized by short hair on the top and sides and longer hair in the back. The longer hair in the back is often styled into a shaggy or messy look. After the show “Stranger Things” gained popularity, many were drawn to this look after seeing it on the character “Billy,” played by Dacre Montgomery. It is also a look many men are pairing with the perm to help achieve a bit more volume and texture. You can also find popular celebrities such as David Beckham sporting a mullet.

  • “The Edgar” Haircut: “The Edgar” haircut is a trendy hairstyle that has become popular among younger men. This style is characterized by short hair on the sides and back with longer hair on top. The longer hair on top is styled into a messy, choppy look. The haircut is named after Mexican YouTuber Edgar Esteves, who popularized the style. “The Edgar” is a versatile hairstyle that can be worn in many different ways and can be tailored to suit individual preferences. Unlike the two previous styles mentioned this style wasn’t necessarily more popular during the 80s. The Edgar actually has roots to 1500s-1700s and was originally worn by men of the Jumano tribe, native to New Mexico and Mexico. Thanks to social media this traditional style has seen a bit of a GLOW-up and is all the rage with teenage boys right now.
