If you wanted to have the right haircut in the 1980’s you needed to have a side ponytail. Ok, so t this was a style that was exclusive to women, but it was one that became popular through-out the world. It was a change from the regular pony tail that always found itself at the back of the head, and with it came a bit of attitude.
If you were a teenage girl in the 1980’s then a side pony tail meant you were tough, it meant you were hard and nobody had better mess with you. If you were a young woman, it meant you had the right kind of attitude to get someplace in life, and you weren’t afraid to show it.
Celebrities And Side Ponytails
In the 1980’s celebrities such as Debbie Gibson had a side pony tail, and that meant it was ok for you to have one. Debbie Gibson was one of the biggest and hottest stars around, and if she had a certain hair style, so did millions of her fans all over the world.
You couldn’t go anywhere in the 80’s without seeing a girl or a woman with a side ponytail, and although they weren’t loved by everyone, those who did love this style wore it with pride. These lop-sided pony tails were worn with those torn and baggy 80’s clothes that made this era a truly unique one. Pants with holes in them, oversized t-shirts, huge bangles and earrings looked good, throw in a side ponytail and you were 80’s through and through.
