The Science Behind Big ’80s Hair

February 15, 2019

Love your daily beauty intake with a large side order of science? Here’s one for you. The American Chemical Society and PBS Digital Studios just released a video that literally breaks down the ways that those extremely unusual ’80s hairstyles got their volume. Things like perming and crimping and the heat or chemicals needed to create those effects are included. It’s a fun but complicated watch. Lots of cheesy but fun ’80s music puns make it a bit easier to digest.

Enjoy!
