The 1980s: when Jean Louis David helped give women freedom

Inspired by stars on TV and the big screen, as well as pop and rock groups of the time, eighties hairstyles were about extravagant looks which helped women to affirm their multi-faceted characters. This guiding principle has always been put into practice as part of Jean Louis David's collections, which constantly contribute, hairstyle after hairstyle, to achieving women's hair emancipation. Proof being, this overview of images, from the decade where anything went!

The 80s Jean Louis David woman, a woman through and through

Gone were the restrictive views whereby only long locks could be considered feminine! During the Eighties, Jean Louis David echoed the affirmation of equality between the sexes, honouring working women "by successfully combining authority and charm" with its collections, giving short haircuts pride of place so that women could fully embrace their masculine side. Desireless-style Crew cuts and ultra-short pixie crops were amidst bowl-cuts like that of Mireille Mathieu and highly feminine layered locks. That wasn't the only hair taboo broken through in the 80's. Asymmetry reigned supreme in both bold hairstyles and unstructured looks such as the iconic mullet, the height of fashion as part of the new wave trend led by David Bowie and Jeanne Mas.

Extreme looks in many forms

So that women could copy dream looks worn by their favourite heroines from TV soap operas and musical comedies, Jean Louis David created influential hairstyles with maximum volume. "Les Yeux d'Hélène"-style bold blow-dried looks, ruffled up Dallas-inspired looks or sexy perms for cascading curls with extreme volume, like Olivia Newton-John in "Grease". XXL became increasingly popular at Jean Louis David, who gave new looks to the cult hairstyles of the decade with a personal touch.

Voluminous waves looked more glamorous than ever with this version of the perm, giving it less of a 'beehive look' for a style similar to that of Charlie (Kelly McGillis) in Top Gun!
