'80s PARTY QUICK TIPS

How to Make '80s Bangs

1. Clip a top layer of bangs inside a wide-barreled curling iron, pull the iron to the end of the hair and curl up and away from the face.

2. Clip the remaining bottom layer of bangs into the iron and curl the hair forward and under.

3. With a comb, tease both layers of bangs to create volume; spray liberally with hair spray until crunchy.
