Hair Inspiration: This is England

Whilst having a This is England marathon earlier this afternoon I realised that whilst I adore the acting, storylines and Joe Gilgun, I also swoon over the hair. You really can't beat a bit of era hair.
The 80's gave us unisex hair, spikes weren't just for guys, and undercuts were short and sharp. I love Kelly's hair in This is England '86 the colour is great - and the root growth adds a tougher edge to the style. Smell's hair is all about dressing up - definitely some good hair accessories going on there.
Maybe with Miley Cyrus and Yasmin Le Bon bringing back the punk undercut style we're seeing a resurgence of the 80's. I'm constantly toying with the shaved section of hair, think it brings such a great contrast to the hair. And lately I've been really stuck on going short - just not brave enough...yet. Lol's hair may have tipped me over the edge though, I love the quiff and short sides. Just hope no one tries bringing back the crispy perm.

  1. Lol's hair was fabulous but nothing at all like the real skinhead girls (thank goodness). Skinhead style still has a big following around the Midlands and the girls tend to wear a buzz cut with a long wispy fringe and sides, not a pretty look! x

    1. Ah the long wispy fringe and sides! I remember boys at school going for similar in the 90's. :) Not the best look. I think Lol's hair works well as a tame skinhead look. Mind you Vicky McClure is gorgeous so she'd suit most styles. x

  3. Great post Kelly, I wish I could rock the short pixie crop or short sides. I looks tough yet still quite girlie. The 80s had some great hairstyles x
